Today's post is just going to be the usual mismatch of rambley nonsense.
First off, it's windy, cold and grey outside as opposed to clear blue sky, bright sunshine yesterday. The HG and I went for a stroll ( in a bid to help the 'Get Rachel Thinner' cause ) . Halfway down the canal I discovered I'd not set my watch activity record thingy off, but it was ok BC I'd set the Map My Walk thingy on my phone. Only when I got home to look at the stats - I'd not pressed 'start workout'!! So I don't know how many steps I did! But obviously, it was loads. I did look like I was out on a walk with my carer though.
Picture the scene. He's 6ft, I'm 5ft tall and round! He strides along and I shuffle quickly behind him! I was wearing leggings and a calf length navy dress and my trainers which are actually technical running shoes, they'll never be technically used, but they are really pretty.
Here are my trotters showing them off! The HG muttered about how bright they were. I topped off my look with my Mac and sunglasses. I call my particular style
CiCC. This is Care Int Community Chic. I pull it off very well!
The HG's Jumper update.
The back is done. Am onto sleeve 2 now, then I'll do the front.
I think I'm definitely neater on the non bamboo pin as I predicted. However, I've double checked and I don't like the pattern. I've cabled up a bit and will carry on but look at how the button band is k2p2, and then where I've started the main body, some parts match up and others don't. I've the correct amount of stitches on, I've made no mistakes as apart from it not sitting as straight, the top piece is the same. I might have a go at re writing the pattern to get it looking better!! I'm not sure that a double row of garter stitch would have improved it before starting the main part? I'll carry on with this until the end and then I'll see.
Right, am off to see a friend and her gorgeous girl this morning. Then I might just pootle until tea time! Looking forward to the next part of Marcella tonight if I can stay awake!
I can hear Barry downstairs. He's been at his other Mummy's for the first week of the hols and now he's here!
I'm always pimping his cage, she says! Last time I bought him a willow ring which he was highly suspicious of...
Here he is thinking WTAF have you put in my cage now you mad bint???
But I knew he'd love it! It frames him beautifully!
Lots of love from
