Today's garden happy - this bush, a euonymus of some kind, is round the front and has been there as a pretty small plant for over a decade. Suddenly, over the last few years, it has decided it is happy there, despite continual neglect, and is now just what I hoped it would be when I put it in. I'll have to cut it back soon a bit, but Google tells me not until early spring.
Morning, everyone. It's a bit early for the sun to be shining now the days are getting noticeably shorter and the nights longer but there is no reason to expect that today will be anything but hot and sunny again. Yesterday was rather lovely. Hot, yes, but only up to 31C in the shade in my garden and perfectly manageable and overnight it has dropped to around 12 which is lovely.
Thank you for your lovely comments about the blanket project. I would keep it as a lap blanket for the winter but I already have fleeces, blankets, etc, galore - there's a limit to how much one person can pile on herself!
I'll start the main project in a few days. There's plenty of time as the baby isn't due for a couple of months and I fancied a bit of a change, so I've started that toddler sock pattern that Jen sent me. It's a good pattern, very easy to follow and everything is working out nicely. I didn't take me long to get used to working with double pointed needles again - I suppose it's like riding a bike you never totally forget how to.
Yesterday turned out to be surprisingly busy. After a great old chat with Chris, I got the first load of washing out on the line and the second load in the machine and went shopping. It was pretty hot and everyone was moving a bit more slowly, me included, so it took longer than usual. Then it was home, James, to put everything away, bring in one washing load and peg out the other and then get busy in the kitchen, making a batch of vegetarian sausage rolls for the freezer and a chicken thing for tonight. It was around four before I sat down and had a bit of a chill before doing the ironing.
Just a nice, normal, ordinary day really.
Today, being Friday (where is the month going?), starts with Slimming World. The house is reasonably tidy already as the cleaners are coming at around half eleven this week. That gives me all afternoon to get ready for Dave and Anna coming round for dinner this evening and to chill and knit.
It should be a really nice day, I think.
I hope yours is good too. Take care, stay cool, stay hydrated and enjoy this lovely sunshine. xx
