Hello my friends. Well, I’m back from yet more gadding about – spent a lovely long weekend with Mr & Mrs D, then moved down to Buckinghamshire to spend some time with my second daughter and her family. Drove home through the glorious autumn Welsh scenery calling at the Ponderosa café at the top of the Horseshoe Pass for a meal. Yes, it’s the bikers’ café that is advertised on the internet! Great fun place, and great food. Fabulous views right across West to Snowdon, and North to the sea! Now I’m home and have been attempting to finish the last of my Christmas cards before thinking about the rest of my to-do list.
So my desk today…
Hmmm… well, there’s the edge of my lovely swivel chair, then at the far end of the room, down at floor level, some boxes and papers which don’t yet have a home, an open drawer which houses paper pads, up on the desk there’s a magazine, some dies, card blanks with their envelopes, box of sticky pads, an empty cutting mat with only my specs on them, a couple of sponge pads which I had been using on the last of the Christmas cards, tweezers, scissors, blade, DST, pointy tool and phone – yes, I’ve gone purple – must be something to do with my age. Pretty boring desk really – and I promise I hadn’t tidied up, simply got to the end of the cards I was making.
Apart from sitting up on my landing space, I’ve been busy sewing together a blanket for Uganda, and trying to work through some of my yarn stash! An impossible task, of course, as I still buy more… oh dear!
My stash buster blanket – and on the chair in the background a blanket made for a lady who occasionally visits our church and who gave me the yarn and asked if I would make it up for her. It’s ready for her next visit – in January!
A smaller blanket – for a cot – knitted by various supporters of our work in Uganda, and simply crocheted together.
So, that’s me today, folks. I’m unlikely to get to visit anyone very much until the weekend – I have a funeral to go to today (Wednesday) over in Cheshire, then the shopping, cooking, preparation and serving to do for Step Inside. I may well fall asleep when I get home after that mammoth on Thursday!!
Take care my friends.
