Friday Smile: I Finally Have Instagram, Still Knitting & Peace In The Garden :)

Hi Honeys
Friday again already :) After my week off I'm back to work today but before I scoot off in a short while I wanted to share a few smiles with you :)
Friday Smile :)
Firstly, as it says above, I finally have instagram :) Thing is I haven't worked out how to use it yet but once I do I'm so looking forward to snapping more photos and sharing them with you, especially now that the garden is starting to wake up again.  I have such high hopes for the roses this year!

In order to sign up for Instagram of course I had to retire my much loved Nokia :/ Sob! It's served me well my dear wee phone over the (many) years we've been together.  I adore this phone honeys. It was a birthday gift from Hubby in 2006!  Ten years can't be bad, can it?  Now though it's all change to this...
All change - new phone & instagram
I still have to work this new phone out yet.  It's an android so it's (a little) like working my tablet but I'm sure I'll get used to it eventually.  If you have instagram, do let me know in the comments so I can follow you?  You can find me here.

In other smiley news I'm still knitting my little squares to complete the next row of my blanket...
More knitted squares for blanket
This next border to be added to the blanket will have (eventually, I can't knit very fast) thirty six squares, all in assorted pretty shades (a great way to use up left over yarn.)  This next multi-coloured border will then be followed by another border of forty four of the lovely dark blue squares.

The blanket will then be completed by adding three rows of squares at the top and again at the bottom of the blanket to change the shape from square to rectangular.  If you'd like to see it, or knit along, you can find the complete pattern (with a graphic to download and follow) here honeys.

Last wee smile for today then, I snapped a photo of the trees in the lane which runs behind our home. These beautiful trees are so tall and stand watch over our garden.  Aren't those leaves just stunning?

In no time at all these same trees will look like this...
Beautiful trees in late Summer
I snapped this photo one perfect afternoon last year, just after Hubby had arrived home from work. Do you remember honeys?  These gorgeous trees with the sun shining through are definitely worth a smile :)

Wishing you a fabulous weekend dear ones, full of smiles and hugs x  I'll be working late shifts today & Saturday but I'm hoping to be back on Sunday with lots of (too many :) photos from our recent trip to Ikea, including these adorable little guys...

Till next time then, remember to smile lots and hug even more, huggles always xxx
