"Oh yes, so I did" (damn, they remembered...) "Go and choose something from the cupboard"
"Monopoly - good choice" (OH NO!!)
So, I'll try and squeeze in a few rounds of my granny squares in between my go, they won't notice...
10 minutes later....

Deary me, have almost 2 weeks really passed since I blogged last? Where does they time go? Right now in the Northern Hi-lights household we've been enjoying some mild sunny weather (last weekend it snowed!) and hit the beach yesterday for a picnic and a spot of beach cricket.
Beaches around the Aberdeenshire coast can be bracing, especially in March, but we got lucky yesterday, with a mild inland breeze making it warm enough to even take our hats and gloves off (we're hardy up here!)
We've also been making plans for some building work on our house and a few caravan trips. Schools break up for the Easter break next Friday, and to be honest I can't wait - my batteries are running low and we all really need a break. Hoping for milder weather so we can take the caravan out on it first voyage of the year - this has pushed me into action to try and finish my 'boy' blanket for cosying up in the bunks on the chillier nights.
I still need to edge it with a contrasting colour (brown?) and no doubt once it's finished they will both want one!
