I cast on the first Antler Toque, love that word, and have done the ribbing and the first pattern repeat, I found 100g of superwash merino Aran tucked away and will make it enough for the hat. I think that it was from a bag of oddments that I bought years ago in a closing down sale.
Archie and Dolly went back yesterday afternoon and the house went suddenly quiet. They didn't make a lot of noise but were very busy and often had a 5 minute of madness, rushing round play fighting and sofa diving. Ben just sighed and turned his back upon them. He did have a long snooze after they had gone and then demanded attention and fusses.
I could not make my mind up over dinner, I batch cooked some pasta sauce for the freezer but just didn't fancy it. In the end I chopped up some crunchy salady bits and had it with smoked cheese and granary bread. It was just what the doctor ordered, tonight I quite like the idea of a cottage pie, a one pot wonder with all the veg nestled under some mash.
Hopefully today will see the last of the blood tests and ECG,s, all the other bloods have been fine and this one is just a bit of "belt and braces" double check.
Apart from the vestiges of the cough, and the night sweats I am feeling pretty good. I wouldn't sign up for a marathon though.
I am yet to try getting pictures on here, I just haven't had the patience for it, but really must try soon.
I didn't have such an early start this morning, it was gone 5 when I oozed out of my sweaty pj's and into the shower. A brew made and a little sit down with Sandra of Cherry Heart and her latest podcast. Then a little pottering around blogland and now I am off to sling a load of washing into the machine before making more tea.
I hope that your day goes well wherever you are.
