Monday Lunch time

It's another Monday, I am at work and the weather is scorching, Think I will leave 1 hour earlier today to try and catch some more lovely weather.
Just taking time out for lunch and use the time productively as I feel I have an abundance of energy at the moment. I have already clicked my way throught the Folksy June Bugs, eaten a Reduced fat egg and cress sandwich and still have half an hour to spare.
All custom orders are up to date, I knit girls leg warmers and sweat bands in stripy pinks, arm warmers for a colleague in lilac and made 3 new cards that I will photograph when I get home and list in my Busybeecards shop. I have also purchased 4 new Marianne cutters and can't wait until they arrive as I have some great ideas on how to use them especially the bird and cage.

I am also thinking of cutting some of the designs and selling them, what do you think?

I have an idea for a new cardigan as I have some lovely green wool that sits and looks at me every time I go into my workroom (its the conservatory really, but piled high with all of my stash) maybe my Mum would love to knit it for me, at 88 yrs old she still has the crafting bug! I only hope I am as good as her when I am that age.

I just feel that life is a joy at the moment, Eldest son has finished his last A2 level exam and it's great to see him finally relaxing with his friends. Husband is pleased with all of the produce that we are finally reaping from the garden, So many vegetables and fresh fruit now that he has semi retired, cooking is such fun when you can just eat what you have grown. Maybe it's the increase in vitamins that is making me feel so well or maybe it's the thought of a summer without the need for another operation now that I am clear of the breast Cancer.
