|I have started a cardigan in the hope that I will finish it in time for winter.|
Thank you for all the lovely comments on my last post, sorry I haven't had a chance to reply as I have been drumming all weekend. Such fun!!!!! Working my socks off the other days, and even getting home from work and going to bed for an hour yesterday as I was so tired. Such is life.
Having discovered the knitting cafe nearby, I am now a regular customer, I just can't stay away! The work room is filling with new knitting projects when I should be clearing it.
|I have seen lots of face clothes on blogs so bought some cotton to make some for Xmas prezzies.|
There is lots of therapeutic knitting going on, mindless easy stuff that sees my mind calm down. You see I have been having a bit of a wobble about the whole moving house thing, I guess it's natural, we have been here for a long time. It was triggered by a text from the bearded one when I was drumming, and I quote "Think I've just sold the house to Jehovah's Witness couple, lovely people. Really should have put some clothes on before I answered the door but it didn't seem to put them off" Haha says I to my drumming buddies, typical of his humour, but when I got home he had been serious, they had left their telephone number for if we were going to put the house on the market. I rang them a couple of days later to tell them we wouldn't be ready for a few months and told them more about the house. As I was writing the list of house features, I thought, crikey this house has everything we need, why are we moving? To make the wobble even worse, as I was doing the above mentioned knitting I watched one of those Kirsty and Phils house programmes. They took a couple around to see various houses, they looked like show houses, not a thing out of place, all shiny, neat and tidy. I then looked around my house with its shabby old furniture, bits of projects all over the house. I guess you would describe it as 'homely'. Oh dear, do I really have the energy and fit enough knee to do all of the decluttering and tidying needed. (News on the knee is that I have been referred for physiotherapy, no doubt they will tell me losing weight may help!) They say moving house is one of the most stressful things you can do. I haven't even put the house on the market and I'm stressed.
In other news, what is going on with the weather? The last two nights we have had very heavy hailstorms. My poor veg patch has taken casualties, and I worry about the chicks in their nests. The peppers I won from Dani have germinated, but at this rate I'm not sure they will be able to go outside for a while and then will they have time to ripen?
I hope you are all having a good week, I'm trying to pop around to visit you all during coffee breaks.
