Sunday

It has been a quiet day here I have rested up a bit, its been cold and miserable out and now we have the heating on it is nice and snug in the house.  My cold is a lot better than it has been I am still bunged up a bit but I am returning to work tomorrow.  OH is still not very good but then he is at least three days behind me on the cold.  

Yesterday I was able to do a little craft work (the rest of the week I have been in bed).  I was working on my large king sized Aran blanket for a while and then starting on a throw.  So far I have made about five squares to the blanket/throw, which is worked in different textured yarns and stitches a sampler quilt which uses both crotchet and knitted pieces.  A bit of a steep learning curve for me as I am not really a serious knitter I am slow, I lose track and end up pulling bits down somewhere or the other.  I do like lovely things though and this is one way of me getting nice things for my home.  Sometimes you have to pay for things or find something very like it.  

Whilst I have been quietly working away I have had the Rugby on TV - I was mainly listening like I used to as a child at my grandparents when my Dad and Pop used to get down to it in the front room.  Happy days.

We have had roast chicken tonight for tea although I still do no have the use of my taste buds.  I am hoping they will return in due course.

Right must get myself organised for the morning.

Catch up soon

    1. Thanks for your good wishes Scarlet

      I just love having different things and I have always been bought up with the view that just because it is out of our expense range does not mean you have to go without so that comes down to either making it yourself or re-using new to you items. It all adds to individual and a different home to everyone else and allows the creatitivy streak to flow.

      Take care
