OFSTED have been and gone – hurray! I survived the inspection and the whole college breathes a sigh of relief! I didn’t get observed which I am mightily thankful for – I think I’ve had more than my fair share of observations this year! In celebration of the the passing of this much anticipated and dreaded event M and I decided to go to Glastonbury for the day on Saturday, but life is never that simple in the world of Samsara and my Uncle had a big birthday party in London on Saturday. We couldn’t go on Sunday because M’s sister was having a big birthday BBQ. Hmmm. Looks like it’ll be Monday then. Good thing it’s a Bank Holiday weekend! Oh yeah, did I mention that it’s a BANK HOLIDAY WEEKEND!!! Woo hoo! Double excitement! You know what that means?? A three day weekend! Oh yeah Baby!!! So the order of the weekend was Stitch n Bitch Saturday lunchtime whilst M watched the footie, then big family party Saturday night, a lie-in on Sunday morning, a family BBQ on Sunday afternoon and then hopefully Glastonbury on Monday unless something else comes up *lol*

I might get a little crafting in, I haven’t done much on my BPT hoodie recently, but I have been crocheting flower squares for my garden blanket. Look how pretty it looks already!


I’ve done a bit on my Sunkist – the yarn is from my stash and was donated to me by a friend at work. It has no band on it so I have no idea what it is. I love the colour but the texture is a little strange.

It’s quite hard for yarn, but it’s clearly knitting yarn. It’s plied so it’s not for rugs or anything like that. It’s very acrylic by the feel of it. I knitted a swatch, washed it and shoved it through the tumble drier, and it feels a little softer. I’ll repeat the process and see if it softens up more. It’s knitting up really quickly though – I love top down raglans!

I have approximately a month left for my TESOL course, a month in which to get all my assignments finished and marked before the moderator comes to interview us. Something else to stress about!

Hope you have a great weekend! x
