Gezelligheid, Chunky Cardigan and Baking

24 Sep

1   Gezelligheid is a Dutch noun meaning the comfort and cosiness of being at home, with friends, with loved ones or general togetherness – and I love it! It’s what we had at breakfast time yesterday morning.

2    The chunky cardigan that I knitted for Grand-baby N turned out to be too small but happily, we have another beautiful Grand-baby, B, who will love it!  We posted it off today and, as I did with the dinosaur parcel last week, I used some very old stamps bought and saved by my lovely Dad who died ten years ago. The people in the Post Office were brilliant and gave me some glue to stick them all on. That’s over £12 worth of stamps on both parcels so thanks Dad, for saving us that postage!  The bigger jacket for Grand-baby N is more than half done. I’m trying to finish it before the end of the month.


3   I have had fun baking Lemon Shortbread biscuits today and used the delightful biscuit stamps I bought in Granollers.

    I love the new word. And, as always, I’m envious of your knitting skills.
