Loved Ones 19.03.2014

This post has been dusted off and taken straight out of the "According to Matt Archives". I originally posted this content on my old blog "Crochet & Crafts According To Matt". I thought that it was a shame for creativity and inspiration to lay dormant, so I'm recycling the content from my old blog, keeping it available for you all to read, reference and use as you please.

Loved ones

Good morning lovelies!
I hope you are all doing well? Sorry I haven't popped by for a chat in over a week, time has been flying by.
I've had a busy week or so; Working, rehearsing, crafting and enjoying time with my parents who were visiting for the weekend from England.
It was an amazing weekend spent in the most glorious sunshine I've seen in months!
What made my weekend extra special was the fact that Dennis was also able to spend it with us. He had to leave the cruise ship he works on for a short while due to a nasty bout of kidney stones. He was in a lot of pain and the ship was unable to look after him so he's back on land for a few weeks until he's all better. It's obviously bad that he's been ill, but so nice that he's home :-)
So time spent with Dennis and my parents made for a rather splendid week! It had been 6 months since I last saw Mum and Dad and no matter how much I told Mum that I didn't need her to bring any gifts, I knew that she would arrive with a suitcase full of goodies. She didn't disappoint!
I now have a rather large stash of Cadbury's chocolate lurking in the kitchen cupboard. Yummy!
Along with a much appreciated collection of English treats, Mum and Dad were also delivering a lovely gift from my Nan. A gift for Dennis' and my apartment, some lovely tea towels in gorgeous vibrant colours.


I love how jolly they are! Great colour combinations, swirly patterns making these vivid owls and butterflies swoop across the fabric with style. These owls are pretty cute huh? Thank you Nan!!!!

Whilst Mum and Dad were here, I showed them all of the local places Dennis and I like to visit.
We ate delicious food together and had a jolly good time catching up. Of course we also did some shopping. Mum could be described as a Shopaholic and as it turns out, I take after her!!! I picked up these fun wind mill on my shopping trip:

I added them to my pot plants! I know I'm overdoing the whole balcony thing, but I just can't get enough of how jolly it's looking. I look forward to when It's warm enough to wake up every morning and eat breakfast outside amongst the wind mills and pot plants.

It's my favourite part of the apartment. Mum and Dad loved it also!

I also picked up some lovely new yarn in the city! Oooooh la la!!
I'll be sharing more about this very soon, but until then I'll leave you with this little preview of the gloriously bright splashes of colour, that I hope to turn into something fabulously fun! Nothing more exciting than new yarn!!!!

I'll be back in a day or two and tell you all about my new yarn, I've already started working on a little something and am rather enjoying it!
I hope you've had as lovely a week as I have spent with my loved ones!!! Thanks Mum and Dad for such a special time!
Speak soon.
