Moar pikshurs....

Another post to get more photos out. Well, at least all the grim and grey mean that I can get back to my crafting, and watching the first season of OZ. Om nom.

Back to the routine....

We came back yesterday from our easter holiday in Finland. The temptation of not coming back is growing......
Coming back to the overwhelming smell of damp and mould, with poop weather forecast for the rest of the week is enough to make holiday blues worse....
It was an adventure at least. Leaving the UK wasn't as easy as we thought, as the airport was like a beehive. Almost all flights were badly delayed. We were supposed to have 50 minutes between flights in Copenhagen, but our flight was so badly delayed that we ran out of the plane to a closed gate and just managed to get on our connection flight. Phew! Not to mention how the first flight was rather bumpy, 1 hour 40 min flight was 1 hour and 30 minutes of sitting on a washing machine. Not very pleasant. The trip was saved though, with the 2nd flight being very smooth, and clear sky meant that we were able to see city lights far below us, stunning views!
Flights coming back were nice too, so all in all it was all good!
Now here is the load of piccies....
 Just landed in Turku
 Moomin greetings
 Kauppatori and the tram-ice cream kiosk

Almost there...

Counting down days when we can set off to our holiday in Finland. I still dislike flying, but I'm trying to tell myself that I'd rather whizz over in a few hours, than drive across countries and be stuck on floating tin cans for days....So much more quicker way to get around. I have just taken out the first batch of garden flowers, and put more bulbs and seeds in. My goal is to have so much random flowers that there is little space for weeds.
The weather was nice for a few days but now it seems to be going back to the usual grim and grey.
 Doesn't bother her though, that's one happy hound...
 Getting there....
 And now just need to do the same on the other end.....
 Getting restless
Listening to the roaring of the foamy sea
Grim and grey....
Mr Wallace is celebrating the local football teams cup win....
 International street market and the churros, om nom....
Had to get the lovely coffees, regular visits on their stall when the market is on...

Will do some more garden stuff and last minute tidy up, then pack our bag. On friday it'll be evening flights. Last time we took the night flights, I wore my family guy-jammie bottoms, and the air  stewardess thought I was a child, as she put us in front of the queue saying children first. It made me chuckle.
Was smooth flights though, so let's hope these ones will be just as smooth. Might take my plastic crochet hook with me, as doing crochet is nice and calming.

Usual fuckery...

Nothing new in the cuckooland, crafting, schoolruns, hunting for crafting items, this time it's artificial flowers. Never realised how hard is to find them if there are certain colours and styles you want....
The sunshine we've had lately is wonderful. It makes people more energetic, makes people smile easier, and generally lifts the mood up. The wind is still cold as a witch's tit though.
Two weeks to go for the holidays too, very excited....

As I don't really have a social life or hobbies other than crafting and being skint, here's more random pics.
