Me on Monday

Happy March everyone. The meteorological start of Spring brought a blustery weekend with some icy feeling wind, perfect for staying inside to crochet and watch rugby and read and get accustomed to my new robot floor cleaner.

Thank you to Shirley for my sixth postcard via Sian’s lovely postcard swap – fabulous snowy view of the Grand Canon.

And say hello to Caleb (he came with that name) the njiri (Shona for warthog)

28-feb-15-(18)

I happened upon a stall selling cute knitted animals from Kenya.  I liked the balance of African women knitting items to send to UK.  The Gogo Olive charity provides a living wage for the women and creates a fun range of animals – their site is here and I was told an online shop is imminent.

Waving to everyone and wishing you all a great week.  Thanks to Sian for suggesting the weekly wave.

We woke up to snow this morning - quite a surprise - tho it has disappeared now. Yes, crochet and rugby here too at the weekend. I like that animal and yes the thought of their being sent from Africa in return for a living wage.

Have a great week!

Waving back to you! Loved seeing the postcard of snow at the Grand Canyon. I actually saw that once, many years ago. Spectacular sight!
Hope your weather warms up soon!

I like your new little animal. Great idea for them making a living wage.
