Good morning, all. How is it Wednesday already? I swear it was Sunday yesterday! And we're only a few days away from half way through October. Oh, my goodness!
Blogger is weird again. I checked my comments this evening for spam (as I did this morning) and there were two. But they were both from me, one an answer to someone at the start of the holiday so a fortnight ago and one made before then. Why have they suddenly appeared in my spam and why so late? So if I appear to have not replied, apologies but maybe I have and they will emerge in several weeks' time! I do try to reply to everyone.
In the interests of keeping warm this winter without turning up the heating, I had a look at my hot water bottle and decided it was no longer fit for purpose (it was VERY old, to be fair), so I bought a couple of new ones (one for me and one for any guests I might have) and now I'm going to use some of my granny squares to put together a cover. It looks simple enough! Actually, I might make two, one from granny squares and one using Tunisian crochet squares. Or I could do a selection of side to side stitches that I learned making the blanket. Maybe I need another hot water bottle?
It'll also help to use up my stash too - win-win!
Hot water bottles take me right back to my childhood - do they have that effect on you too? Only ours were wrapped in old pillow cases rather than purpose made covers.
I also found a nice set of Elmer books, not shockingly expensive, to go with the jumper so that's New Baby's Christmas present sorted out. I must just sew the buttons on and make some little loops at the back for them.
Yesterday went well. Groove was fun and it looked like everyone was there - it's always nice to have a full house.
I got two loads of washing done and dried but didn't start the ironing. I'm not feeling 100% - just a cold coming, I hope, although I will test later on this morning before going to circuits. It's just aches, a sore throat and increasing sniffles and paracetamol, etc, is helping. I suppose I am overdue for a cold - I haven't had a good one in ages.
How times have changed. I feel in honour bound to test when a cold starts, 'just in case'. It used to just be making sure one had enough tissues in ones bag!
Today is just another Wednesday. Personal training, assuming the test is negative and Lindsey doesn't mind me turning up with a cold. If she does, maybe it could be online instead.
(Edit: We're having an online session - her son was up in the night with v & d so best to keep our bugs to ourselves really - sharing is not always the kindest thing to do!)
What with the ironing and the need to sort out some of my cupboard space (or lack of), I have plenty to keep me occupied so that's good. I might even have a tidier home by the end of the day!
What are your plans for today? xx
