Good morning, everyone. What a shame the weather has turned on us for a few days. Yesterday was damp and drizzly and today looks like being wet and windy. Well, it is November, I suppose!
Yesterday was a day of two halves. In the morning I dropped Al off at the station and then popped off to Blake Farm. In And Sew On I managed (I hope) to get what Beth wanted and then I popped into Sconch (the yarn shop) where I accidentally < cough > fell for a jumper pattern and some yarn .
My excuse is that I've pretty much finished the front and the back of what I'm currently making and NEED (yes I do) another project to work on after it's finished as it keeps my hands busy and off the food!
When I got home, the cleaners had come early and nearly finished. After lunch I say down and promptly fell asleep, waking a couple of hours later. Oh, well, I must have needed it!
After a very early start today, I have a few plans, the main one being a trip to as local garden centre Christmas open weekend. There's a free coffee in it for me plus £5 off if I spend £25. I can't guarantee the latter but the former is pretty much a given! In the bumph accompanying the invite, there's an ad for 'festive door mats' that are so cheap that they can't be all that great but they don't need to be really! Also some novelty hats. I'm sorely tempted but will see exactly what they look like in real life. Yes, I know, not terribly frugal or sensible but I get worse about Christmas as I get older!
The other thing, much bigger, is that I'm on the hunt for a 'quality' artificial tree to replace the current one that is very, very old now and every year it loses another few 'twigs' and loads of 'needles' to the extent that it's starting to look increasingly threadbare.
Later on, Beth is round and we're making more cards as the last lot sold pretty well a fortnight ago.
I need to do a small food shop too.
And I'll probably fall asleep at some point, making up for such an early start to the day!
Have a good 'un, everyone. xx
Later edit: I managed to get back to sleep and slept until hearly half past eight - phew!
