...this week of...

...happiness getting a new bag of yarn through the post, spending a lovely day out with friends, returning home after being away, at my eldest sitting and reading his first novel he has shown no interest up until now.

...sadness my father in law not having the operation he desperately needs for the second week running, there was no bed again.

...creating wristwarmers and slippers with wool, drawings of dragons and dinosaurs, arrows with wood.

...reading a really good book, Fear Not by Anne Holt.

...learning about dinosaurs, the body, what is in the food we eat, what makes a healthy diet and what happens when you mix bicarb and vinegar.

...thinking about my mother in law at this really hard time for her.

...wondering how my youngest will be when I go away overnight for the first time in her life.

...hoping my tomatoes will ripen before it gets cooler, the temperature has dropped slightly and the sunshine is much reduced so I am not sure they will!

...looking forward to spending some time out in the hills this week.


  1. Ah yes, the thrill of new yarn arriving in the post. I had some last week, and it was wonderful! Sorry about the lack of hospital beds, it's not good. Hoping that one will be available very soon and that things will improve for your in-laws, it must be a very difficult time. I'm hoping my tomatoes will ripen too. The season never seems quite long enough for them.

  2. There is a mix of happy and sad in your moments. I hope your father in law has the operation he needs soon. I am hoping my tomatoes ripen too, there has been little sun lately and it's much cooler...I may be making green tomato chutney at this rate! x
