I took myself and my granny squares out into the garden, and a book and some squash and settled down to some gentle sewing.
The bare patch behind my chair is thanks to Ben, he had a mad 5 minutes and tried to plough the garden.
My delivery time frame was between 2 and 5 so at 1:30 I went in and had a little lunch and then parked my chair in the front garden. Then I parked my btm into the chair, had a little read and started sewing again. A few passers by stopped to comment and compliment my colour choices and the day ticked away steadily.
At 4:00 it arrived and was soon assembled.
It took longer to wrangle it into the house than it did to put together.
I will be trying it out tomorrow, I still have to put it in the right place and set the machine up again.
Reasons to be grateful.
1. More sunshine.
2. A lovely day spent crafting in the fresh air.
3. New people to chat with, however briefly.
4. Ben met some new dogs on our early evening walk, lots of tail wagging and " getting to know you sniffling"
5. A delicious dinner at very little cost.
I had a rustle through the fridge and decided to try a recipe that I have had in mind for ages. Car-Brie-Nara fromA Girl Called Jack. It was very very good, I will add mushrooms next time just to change it slightly, or maybe some frozen peas.
One of the packs of cooking bacon from Lidl had a slice of Gammon 4" thick, a small joint really, that will go in the slow cooker tomorrow and I will have it for dinner with Pembrokeshire new potatoes and corn on the cob.
If the promised rain holds off I will go into Ammanford in the morning for a dedicated CS trawl.
Hopefully Blogger will be back to normal soon, it is a nuisance.
I just have time for a brew before Ben goes out for his last walk of the day.
