Race progress

The jumper vs baby race is really hotting up:

Baby is at about 8 months.
And as far as the jumper is concerned, the sleeves are done and I'm onto the yoke. Another inch or so and I can start doing some decreases. I'm looking forward to the decreases as it's an awful long way around at the moment.
So, the race is hotting up and it's all to play for.

Mr Smiley Tree

I've been meaning to blog about Mr Smiley Tree for ages. Someone at some point has done something to this tree that means that after there has been rain a smiley face appear on the bark.

We had a thunder storm yesterday evening and then some more rain during the night, so he was all smiley this morning. It's nice to be able to look out of the kitchen window and see his happy smiling face.
