I solved part of my blogging problem: I usually don't allow myself to blog until I have read and commented on the posts of blogs on The Bloglovin'. Reader, I decided I would just comment on the most recent post and be damned. Well, the World didn't end, and what a stupid rule that was I made for myself!!
The Dutches were away on holiday and while they were away I finished their Very Late Christmas present: Santa's Laundry Live 2. I seem to have misplaced the mittens. Oh well, Santa will just have cold hands until I find them!!!
I've also had to start knitting an emergency hot water bottle cover. The one I have was knitted three years ago in mystery wool. It has not been very long lasting wool, and what started out as a little hole I darned last week turned into a mesh of holes held together with a few strands of wool. So the Lost Your Bottle? hot water bottle was begun last night. I am using a ball of Jo Sharp (and I keep saying Donna Hay) and some old Bendigo Classic 8 ply in Sequoia.
Peri and Gilly have been out of sorts because of the three levels of scaffolding on the house next door. The painters were fine until they went up ladders, whereupon Lorelai Gilmore was sure they were burglars and woofed until reassured. Peri does take it more in her stride , but is happy she can have a biscuit treat at the fence again. Gilly is always unsettled without Peri and when we go up the hill to the hang-glider and Peri doesn't come, Gilly is so joyful when she sees her coming.
Peri does come when she is called, usually, but often she is busy sniffing a vital smell.
I bought some new cushions for The Labradors. Can you tell that Gilly loves hers so much?? She is sound asleep, sleeping hard, and slightly snoring.
A while ago TinkingBell gave me a little Jamie Oliver greenhouse. A few weeks ago The GardyGardeners were treated to egg and watercress sandwiches for morning tea. Watercress I had grown. Yay!!! And very tasty the sandwiches were too. At first I wrote " and very tasty they were too", then realised it sounded as if I has eaten The GardyGardeners. I think this is the first time I have ever seen a crop through to fruition: Thanks!!
My friends and I have been, on and off, continuing our never-ending Block of the Month (fortnight) quilts and even though I have lost one of mine, here's a peek.
My cold seems to be slowly on its way out. My daily naps are down to about two hours. I have yet to get my act together again, and yesterday when I thought I was doing nothing, I was in fact going to the Exercise Physiologist, to pathology and then to the hospital pharmacy to order drugs. That took about three hours. So I really did need a nap.
MrsDrWho's mum has been away and she brought me back some Shakespeare tea and a marvellous mug from Stratford-upon-Avon.
The weather has been both warm and 19*C and chilly with fog and ice on the car and grass. It is dark very early, but I am still savouring the cool weather and still wearing my Summer dresses with a light cardigan. I think I am well enoughfor Friday Food again. Though don't hold your collective breaths!!
