Good morning, everyone.  It's still cold, the forecasts get more and more 'severe' and it looks as if there will be some snow around next week although when and how much isn't totally clear.  Well, what will be, will be, and I'm plenty prepared, no point me worrying so I won't!

It was lovely seeing Alex yesterday and we had a really good chat about this. that and the other.  He's become much more articulate now, which is great.  He enjoyed the full English I made for him while I enjoyed my apple (really, I did, it was lovely!).  After I took him home, I got on with my planning so now I am ready for Monday.  I do like to get ahead a bit.

Today looks like being a quiet day.  There's nothing scheduled really so I will probably knit, plan a bit more and generally chill.  Nice and undemanding.

Have a great day.


  1. Thank you - and you too. I've started well - in bed, coffee beside me, knitting on the go and reading blogs. Very nice!

  2. I must mention your lovely header photo, Joy, the snowdrops. There was a piece on the News today about galanthophiles (not sure of spelling) and the highest price paid for a snowdrop bulb is now £1,400, for a rare one. But how do we know which are the rare ones? Apparently, the more intricate the design, the markings, the leaves, the more valuable they are. So now you know - you might have a rarity there!
    I'm lost, not sure who Alex is. I might have to read back through hundreds of your posts to find out.
    It's very cold here in Torbay, too.
    Have a good weekend,

  3. Alex is my grandson, Margaret. He has autism and is very clever. He's reading maths at UEA, Norwich and is in his first year.
    £1400 for a snowdrop bulb!!! Blimey. And I thought I'd paid over the odds for the bulbs I got from Anglesea Abbey!
