I woke up with a killer headache after a brilliant day/night. Started at Hard Rock ended up at a Lebonese restaurant for end of the night munchies. It started snowing last night so this morning Baku was under a blanket of the crappy whiet stuff. This wouldnt have been too bad had I not signed…… Continue reading Snow & cupcakes.
This morning sucked. Running with a 26 mph wind belting you in the face while its -3 is not ideal conditions for training. It was cold and miserable. I don’t really want to repeat it for a while. A did my square early today as i think its unlikely I will be in any fit state to…… Continue reading Nasty running, a circle in a square and margaritas yay!
Eventful day today. We started off at the smallest monsters school art exhibition. It was great, I was really impressed with the work from the kids and the boy loved showing his dad and me around. Next I went to buy a friend’s birthday present from a group of us here. I then managed to…… Continue reading Three cocktails and a square
Love square 25. It was quick and easy but it looks complicated. It didn’t use much yarn either. I am tempted to try to make a blanket by just doing rounds of it the repeated pattern. The pattern is was a free Ravelry download which is now available on web archive. The link to the…… Continue reading New favourite square.
Last night was a good night. We were at the work New Year (old Russian new year) party at the Fairmont in the Baku Flame Towers. Good food, entertainment, well stocked open bar and a fair bit of dancing. Its been a while since hubbys company has had something that was actually a good night…… Continue reading Turkey dinners and the bobble stitch.
The kids were very excited when it started to snow last night they went to bed dreaming of waking up to a Baku snow day. Much to my delight and their dismay we woke up to a chilly temperature but no snow. That plus the fact that one of my best mates gets ridiculously excited…… Continue reading Snowflakes and photography.
Earlier blog today because its hubby has a work event for us to attend so I thought I had better get the square done before we go. I went for a run today with Liz and the rescue dog that is currently living in her house (much to the displeasure of her cats). Poor little…… Continue reading Sunflowers and running with a dog
Today was a long day! I didn’t sleep much because I drank a bottle of wine while I spent 3 hours on the phone to my dad and didn’t hang up until after 1am. I woke up with a killer headache on a school holiday which is never fun. I do however have fab friends…… Continue reading Strawberry fields forever.
Second run training done. We took 40 minutes to run 2.63 miles (only 10.4 miles short of the half marathon we will be running – eek!) alternating between a two-minute walk and a one minute run following the 21K app from Vandersoft Apps. Safe to say we need all the help we can get. I…… Continue reading Lacy Flowers and a run.
I love this square. Its easy and looks good and its easy so it easy its worth repeating. I saw a few patterns online and after a read through realised if you can do a basic granny you can do this, no pattern following required. I didn’t add a finally round to mine because I…… Continue reading Mitred Grannys
