Good afternoon from sunny & warm Suffolk :)
Oh yes after the not so great weekend the sunshine is finally here. It was here for a while yesterday too but the afternoon brought a wonderful storm. I knew one was coming as I had the most awful headache. Amazingly the torrential downpour stopped just before the boys were due to finish school so they didn't get soaked.
I've been plodding slowly on with my blanket in between other crafting/sewing projects - thought it was time for an update - I've now knitted 65 squares, 64 of which are sewn together - another 16 and it will be a full 9x9 - then I shall decide whether than is enough of whether it needs to be the full 11x11. TBH as long as its finished for the camping season I'll be happy - first day for that is the Latitude Festival in July :)
This morning I've been to see my Grandma as I do every week. My Grandad has been in hospital for the past 7 weeks - they've a meeting today to decide where he goes next - home or a nursing home. We all know in our heart of hearts that home isn't the best option but need to hear that from the professionals.
Anyhow despite the fact that I'm 40, my Grandma still likes to treat me like a little girl - so often I get given pocket money!! I tend to save this up for holidays & days out but occasionally I like to treat myself - today was one of those days. I saw in the window of a little shop in town this bracelet & I couldn't leave it there;
It will go with everything :)
I got home to discover that I'd missed the postie :( - I think it was my Fabric Swap parcel from Karen - I shall have to collect that from town tomorrow. Yesterday I had better luck - I was home when MrPostie arrived bearing this;
Oh yes a parcel from Cath - I had to use that Easy Living 15% voucher didn't I ;) Only 3 things - one for a swap so you can't see that, these for me;
and this for the kitchen - hoping it makes baking less messy sometimes;
Right its so sunny here I think I shall take my lunch out into the garden & make the most it.
See you soon - I shall be able to share my other parcel with you then.
