So this weekend I treated myself to a days holiday and had Friday off too. Happy days 🙂
I’ve recently gained an English Heritage membership through work, so I thought I’d make some use of it and go exploring.
My friend, her daughter, Lily and I found ourselves at 11am on Friday morning driving to Dorchester to find The Nine Stones. These are essentially 9 large rocks in a circle type arrangement that were placed there about 4000 years ago. No idea why, but there are only 4 of them that can be found in Dorset, UK. Lily was strapped into the harness (the meadow walk to get there was not pushchair friendly). She seemed to enjoy the trip…
My friend also found a 4 leaf clover – which was pretty cool! I’d never seen one before.
Saturday was a very busy day. Lily and I got up at 7ish, then went to swimming at 9am. She’s really getting the hang of putting her face in the water – they encourage them to copy us so she’s moving at her own pace with this one which is nice.
From swimming we went into Poole to meet a friend, which was lovely. Then we went straight from Poole into Bournemouth to meet some other friends for lunch at The Real Greek. We’re a huge fan of high chairs in restaurants. Lily is also starting to develop a habit of studying menus…
We’ve also developed an attachment to a travel sized version of “I wrote to the zoo to send me a pet…” which she now pretends to read and studies the pictures. So cute!
In the evening we then went to a friend’s engagement party, which was lovely 🙂 Lily was absolutely fascinated by the disco lights and promptly fell asleep in a faster manner than she does at home. How does that work exactly?
Was just a day of chilling, knitting and wine. Which I completed needed after the last couple of days!
I’m going to give this very yummy bottle of wine from Lidl (on offer at £2.99) the credit for giving me the courage to finally learn DPN knitting.
So that’s all from me for today 🙂 what did you guys get up to this weekend?
Love to you all and happy knitting!
