I'd been looking back at Secember posts from years gone by! The one I was bringing you was from 2011. I'll just post a screen shot instead!
I've not seen Helene in a while. I'm going to send her a message to see how she is.I used to dash off quick n qwirky poems all the time! I've not written one in ages!
Anyway, Annabeth saw it and commented....
I will reply here Annabeth - after four years, my finger is fine!! I do use grease proof and clear my film now to individually wrap everything!
Back to today.
Miss 21 braved Storm Frank and has gone to Newcastle for New Year's Eve celebrations. I'm being bossed about on a regular basis by my Christmas Present off the HG...
This was last night!
However, right now I'm on my bum in front of this. This is a live photo of my fire!
What a lovely email!!
This is what the HG picked out of my pattern book 'Knits for Men' !
So I casted on
And I've decided to note down how many minutes I'm knitting for as it goes along because I am a really slow knitter and I'm curious as to how many months this will take! I reckon it'll be just about ready for the heatwaves we'll no doubt have in August!!
As I hate doing them so much I've started with a sleeve!
This took me one hour.
I was also drinking a cup of tea, dunking biscuits and chatting to the HG and Mr 18 too.
An afternoon nap may have happened too! I've taken some lamb neck fillet out of the freezer to make a hotpot in the slow cooker. It's oven baked jackets tonight with roasted tomato salad for me and with gammon for the men.
One thing I've noticed in the last few posts to me, my blog looks different. I mean when I post it, it's like it's changed fonts part way through. I only ever use my phone to post but think I need to get on a PC to fettle on the Blogger dashboard. It's annoying me!
I also wanted to show you this! Remember the 'knit your own cushion' set I got sans instructions from M&S.
I emailed them with my plight..
I do love good customer service.
Lots of love from
