Inspired by all you talented crocheters I have picked up a crochet hook after many years and started a new project. This is the first of 164 circles!! It may take me a few years. The colour is actually nicer than is looks here, it is going to be a blanket. It will probably be ready for when I am sat in a rocker in my old age :) I keep making mistakes, yes there is a mistake in this one, I sadly lack concentration when it comes to following patterns and counting things. Watch this space for updates.
It has been typical Bank Holiday weather here with heavy showers, so instead of a nice trip out we headed into town and I bought waterproof walking gear in the sale. I bought some waterproof trousers which look ridiculous but I must be getting more sensible in my old age. Gone are the days when I use to go out on my motorbike, get completely soaked and think nothing of it. My old bones wouldn't cope with hanging around in wet jeans for hours now.
I am planning to get out walking more to try to get my fitness levels back and lose the weight gained through months of inactivity. I don't seem to be able to walk far without pain lately so hopefully all that will be fixed soon :) I have also been catching up with the dreaded housework this weekend. It is very tempting to leave it until next week and then get OH to do it as I can't possibly lift a hoover or iron, but that would be a bit mean.......wouldn't it?
Thank you for your lovely comments on my last post. There has been a few horrible comments on the local news sites about the Pride Parade. The usual hateful homophobic name calling from the usual trolls hiding behind their computer screens. I have reported them and the comments have been removed, no doubt they will be trolling about something else tomorrow. But there may well be young people out there who read them, and will be too afraid to 'come out' for fear of this bullying, hateful behaviour. There is still a long way to go and I can't help but worry about my son and his friends who risk being attacked for who they are.
Well not much else to say really, back to work tomorrow so the sun will probably return.
