This year has been busy… lots and lots of knitting, hundreds of miles walking in the woods, some lovely times in Cornwall and all sorts of pirate adventures with Boy and his crew.
The Moonstruck Pup… coming up with new plans to tangle my yarn and play with my knitting…
Pint Beastie without his pint, One-eyed Little Bob and Pirate Beastie on their new ship… Why – you may ask – Pint Beastie isn’t holding his pint and why Little Bob only has one eye? Well, ask the moonstruck pup! – (Photo by Boy)
A pretty good year for treasure, as far as Pirate Beastie is concerned.
A year with some tears, some laughter too. A decent amount of back pain and hours of yoga and chiropractic treatments.
It’s the small things I liked the most. Like some of the small things I have knitted for Boy and his dad…
When you become a parent your life becomes full of small achievements, they maybe small, but they are lasting memories, to treasure for ever.
The small things are what matter the most to me.
Like Boy with his tiny coins in his small treasure chests, I have my own little treasure chest inside me and I keep filling it up with small memories. My treasures. Small in size, but big to me.
As John Lennon wrote and sung to his son in Beautiful Boy:
“Life is just what happens to you,
While your busy making other plans”
Life is also these moments when one comes across something that makes one smile…
Those of you who are familiar with this will understand, because you would have probably shared it too if that had happened to you, wether or not you were busy making other plans…
(You may have noticed the “tax in the post” note on the wind screen… :)
Those who aren’t familiar with this and wonder why on Earth I’m showing pictures of a bright yellow three wheeled van, I suggest you have a look at this:
All the socks on the pictures at the top of this post were knitted over a lot of summer evenings, while watching the entire collection of Only Fools and Horses :)
May 2016 brings you a lot of foolish moments and laughter, preferably with horses…
