A friend's new son arrived a few days early and a blanket was called for - finished just in time and spot on for a wee boy - with Northern Ireland having had the coldest July weather in 20 years, the cosy warmth was needed!
I thoroughly enjoyed all the baking, decorating and crochet. It was an intensely creative end to the working week and it all left me feeling relaxed- just as well as I'd an early start back to work for a Radio 4 broadcast on Sunday morning. The service was from the Corrymeela community on Northern Ireland's beautifully, misty coastline... more grey and white than blue and white though - a very misty, damp morning.
A wee bit of hooky, new baby cuddles and being part of someone's special day - and a programme that went smoothly. Perfect. What makes you happy?
