Good morning, everyone. I've woken to a chilly morning with ice on Dad's flat garage roof. Thank goodness for central heating. Yesterday was a funny old day. Bright sunshine and clear blue skies one minute and lashing rain/hail with gusty wind the next. And cold!
They reckon today and tomorrow will be fine and pleasant although not all that warm. That's OK, I'll take the sunshine and be glad.
Yesterday was a gentle day. I went to Tescos and did Dad's shopping. He'd already put the washing on so I finished it off. In the afternoon, I read and knitted (the jumper is now finished) and resisted the temptation to raid the pantry!!!
Today is more of the same, I think. No shopping but a bit of ironing and a bit of knitting. The pattern book has a nice pattern for a child's knitted aran jacket and, as I have enough yarn left, I will give it a whirl. Maybe Beth can sell it through Kitty Stitches. The main thing is that I have the yarn already and I need to keep my hands busy.
Come the evening I'm cooking haggis for dinner. No, it's not Burns Night, not are we Scottish (although my ex was Scottish) but Dad does love it and hasn't had it in these latter years because Mum disliked it. It's not hard - I'm just boiling it and we're having new potatoes, swede and gravy (and Dad will have some whisky with it).
That's about it really. Maybe I will get out for a walk this afternoon; that would be nice. Yesterday I was feeling a bit dodgy and this morning I woke with a very sore throat and an aching neck/back. It's easing with some ibuprofen so that's OK but maybe some fresh air will be just the ticket!
Have a great day and stay warm! xx
