Good morning. It was a pleasantly sunny day yesterday, albeit in a hazy sort of way, but the latest storm is on the way and is expected to impact here soon although it is calm and dry right now, early morning. Fingers crossed it isn't as rough as last weekend.
I have two days to catch up on.
Thursday was a really lovely day. Coffee and a lovely chat with J, a fantastic get together at school to wish Sue a happy retirement where lots of the 'old crowd' turned up and the staff room was filled with happy chatter and lots of reminiscing and then pottery (no photos, sorry) where one candle holder is now ready for firing and the other two have been glazed. I'll have to wait two weeks to see the results as it's half term next week so no pottery.
Yesterday was dominated by the dental appointment but - and you couldn't make it up - Dr Clough wasn't totally satisfied with the fit of the temporary denture so he took another impression and has given me a slot for today at ten for the extractions. In a way, it inspires confidence that he won't do less than the best but it's another sudden let down and it left me very tired and achey.
Beth probably can't come with me today so I will just have to put on my big girl's pants and do a bit of growing up, won't I? And the wind can jolly well hold off until I get home again.
Once that's over, I have no plans for the rest of the day except to stay in out of the wind and read/knit/etc.
I finished some fingerless gloves I was knitting and now I'm on the second of a pair of socks. I just fancied doing some smaller things and quite enjoy knitting in a round (using four needles). With any luck, I will finish the second sock over the weekend and, as I have lots of sock weight yarn, I might start another pair. They are so nice and warm and comfortable and, as the yarn is self striping, they look fun too.
I went to Morrisons for a few bits and bobs and they had a couple of new sewing magazines in with paper patterns that they call 'free' although, at the price they ask for the magazines, I prefer to call them 'cheaper than usual'. Anyway, I liked all the patterns so splashed out on a weekend/half term reading treat.
I need to reclaim my share of the sewing machine, don't I?
That's it really. Have a great weekend, whatever you plan to do. xx
