Wednesday's WIPs and Books

We arrived in Tunisia (North Africa) earlier this week for a family break, and it's so hot I can't really think about knitting anything despite Nuvem and a lovely new skein sitting in my bag with hopes of becoming a(nother) Hitchhiker. Never mind, there'll be plenty of time for that when we get home. In the meantime we're enjoying very early nights with exhausted children (lots of much-needed sleep for us), SUNSHINE, splashing about in the many pools and (far too much) delicious food.
We're not here long enough to do any real exploring but the resort is beautiful - lots of palm trees, stunning flowers and LOADS of things to do, if one were so inclined. Our children are a bit too young to make the most of it, especially Little Miss who won't leave our sides, but My Boy is having a wonderful time with daily activities and a new little friend. If you want to see more photos, check out my Instagram feed (@craftsfromthecwtch).
As its Wednesday (I think!) I expect you're here for an update on WIPs and books, so I'll attempt to link in with Tami's Amis and Ginny's Yarn Along...

(NOT) KNITTING: Nuvem by Martina Behm
READING: This morning I finished The Scent of Lemon Leaves by Clara Sánchez which I enjoyed. I'd rate it 4 out of 5 - an interesting tale, the main characters were well drawn and the fact that many Nazis who had committed terrible atrocities did actually live out their days in comfort along the beautiful Spanish coast is quite thought-provoking. I would certainly read more by this author.
I have about 10 new books on my Kindle to choose from this evening, but first we have a whole afternoon to enjoy. 
 Cheers!

  5. I hate when it gets so hot that the yarn sticks to your hands. Maybe later when it cools down you'll be able to pick it up again. Looks like you still found time to read and enjoy the company of your precious family.
