A place of secrets

I read this on Monday and finished on Tuesday. I loved the idea of the book, but it is badly written.
I don't know if it is just me, and that I need MORE from my books, but I find that a lot of books these days seem to be written by a teenager doing a story for their English teacher.
The style of writing and the predictability was really annoying me, but I persevered to see how it would go.
Like, for example, 2 of the main characters, u know the minute that they met, they where going go be a couple by the end, the relationship between the sisters was explained on the surfaced, but nothing too deep, same as the relationships between the sisters and their mother and grandmother, also the relationship between the mother and grandmother, and as this book is all about relationships, it left the story rather lacking.

No monsters in this house!

We watched a dvd in bed tonight, the Fantastic Mr Fox - truly a fantastic film. Lyle, who did not even want to watch it, loved it!
When the film finished we done all the bed time things we do, brush teeth, wash face etc, jump back into bed, kiss, cuddle, I love u thiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiis much to the moon and back. Etc etc. I turn the light out, put the little fan heater on and Lyle says "mum I don't like the dark, incase any monsters want to come in." So I precede to tell him the same thing I have been saying for nearly 3 years; "we don't have monsters in our house, monsters are only made up for cartoons like scooby soo..." GASP!  As I'm saying this a little stallings flies out my open mirrored wardrobe and hits the roof a few times, both of us dive under the covers, heart going 10 to a dozen, I peek out, see its a bird and prepare to get brave.
Turn the heater off and the bird goes back into hiding. I open the window and put the heater back on, tell Lyle to go under the covers just in case the bird poo's on him and as I say that, the poor frightened creature flies soo fast out the window it nearly flew into the lamp post.
Half an hour later and my heart is just starting to calm down.

This is my Valentine's gift to Gordon. Bought the tickets months ago, and I somehow managed not to tell him, so its a surprise!

What's missing?

My dam hook! Can't find it! I had it and now I don't :( soo in the mood for getting on with this!

I went to.a local garden centre today looking for yellow cotton and their was none. I got a sort of Orange instead. Will post a better pic tomorrow, the lights in here are not very good for colours

Baby wavy

Done a little more to the blanket.
U can see the pattern coming along nicely now. Unsure if I should look for a yellow and Orange to add in or just keep my 4 colours. I have greens and blues, that I'm using on my next blanket. I have 4 babies due in June and July, so I need to get a move on!

Some up close pics to see the cotton n how it looks .

I haven't done more than 3 rows as picked son from nursery

Baby wavy blanket

Beginning of row 3, my first colour change.

Baby Wavy Blanket.

Chained 112
Using 4.5mm hook.
"Spring" crochet assortment 100% cotton from Lidl.
Colours I'm going with...
Cream, hot pink, baby pink and lilac. If I don't repeat these by time I get home, then I will add in 2 blues that I have at home, if I get around to repeating then it will just b the 4 colours.
First row is a bit of a *bleep*, but once I get past it, the blanket should get their in no time.
