Good afternoon from Sunny Suffolk
Feels more like late summer than late autumn. The sun has been shining all day and its so mild out there. No need for a coat at all. To be honest this suits me fine at the moment - getting around can be tricky enough without adding ice or snow to the mix.
Here's what I've been doing since my last blog catch up style post;
Practising wearing shoes :) I can manage about 1/2 an hour at time at the moment (and only around the house) but very slowly I'm getting there. I can also only fit into this old pair of Converse as my foot is still slightly swollen but again progress :) Back to the physio this week - I've promised to try and wear shoes to walk into the session.
There have been a rather high number of days out in the past week too;
Lunch with my Dad & little Grandma - a rather lovely treat. I've got the hang of steps & stairs now with my moonboot so finally I got the pub lunch I'd been promised.
A trip to a big supermarket with my parents - now that might sound not exciting to some but to me it was wonderful. Being able to get some bits I've needed since August - stuff you can't send a man to buy. I've now loads of lovely warm tights, pairs of socks and new pyjamas. Having been indoors such a lot, the whole Christmas madness has passed me by. Scary to see how many massive trolley loads of 'stuff' were being pushed about. One got a bit close to me - perhaps he thought if he shoved me I'd move faster - he got a very hard stare and stern words from my Mum!! However I did enjoy a wander around the aisles to get a few bits for family & friends and I couldn't resist this chap for myself;
On Saturday I was dropped off in our little town and left to have a good wander around. I had a good stock up on yarn to finish some projects and to start others. I made it into a couple of charity shops too - finding things I needed for swaps. Whilst its more spring than autumn, I could leave this little lost lamb behind, he was only 50p;
Whilst I was out, little son decided that he'd do some baking - this time coffee buns with pale blue icing and sprinkles - tasted rather good AND he did the washing up!
The rest of this week seems to have been filled with crafting - finally my mojo has returned. I've a list of things I'd like to make for coming birthdays/Christmas/swaps and slowly things are being ticked off. This knitted monster is for my nephew - he loves things to cuddle so I think this colourful fella will go down rather well;
I finished the little mini-raggie - rather pleased with her. She's off to live with someone later this week and I shall start on a couple more as pressies for my little nieces;
Today has been a quiet one here. MrVV & Little Son have been out at 2 Remembrance Parades - they stopped off for a pub lunch inbetween. I've been pottering around catching up on some domestic stuff and starting another crochet project. I think my 2 blankets won't be growing bigger for a while now as other projects have leap-frogged over them.
Hope you've all had a good weekend?
See you soon
