It's a bright, bright sunshiny day.

It was a bit chilly first thing and then the sky darkened and down came the rain. Once everything had been washed clean the clouds scuttled off and the sun came out to play. Ben and I are just back from a lovely stroll, he has had a drink and is now snoozing. I have a cuppa and a mandarin orange. I would rather a slice of cake but am too lazy to dig in the freezer for one.
I have knitted a few rounds on the red and brown striped sock, it is of course the WW11 pattern, perfect mindless knitting for telly watching or chatting.
In preparation for the coming festivities I have tidied my knitting corner and have 3 project bags by my side. 1, the WW11 socks, 2, the bedsocks and 3, the sweater in the round. 
I will work on these until I settle down in front of the telly on Christmas Eve, then they will be put aside. I have another bag all ready to bring through with my cast on supplies, a cake of beautiful yarn, pattern and circular needle. I went through my patterns and eventually decided on  Hermione's Everyday Socks. A simple pattern that will allow the yarn to be the star. 

There is very little traffic in the village, I had thought that the road would be very busy but perhaps it will be mad on Saturday.

My 4 legged guest comes tomorrow, a Puggle called Rufus, he is my next door but one neighbour's dog. His owner is going for a Friends catch up stay and I jumped at the chance to have Rufus. He is Ben's pal and is a real gentleman.

Dinner tonight is a curry, it is defrosting now and Fridays will be Shepherds Pie. Saturday will be another home made ready meal from the freezer. I am having a lazy time of it while I can, once Fran comes home I will be in the kitchen making her favourite meals. That is not a moan, I love cooking for her.
I have a little ironing to do later, the washing is up to date and the house has been bottomed, I am in a happy place. 

I have to drink my tea now before it gets cold.

  2. I had planned on blitzing through the house today, but I'm feeling ropey again, so it's had a quick vacuum. I did KL's room yesterday though so that's all ready for her, and all the presents are wrapped. Happy Christmas Pam. x

    1. I can't decide whether to think of Cartland or Bush, neither of them too scary....wait a minute those false lashes on the first Barbara were fairly scary. I will only be venturing out with Ben, and if it is bad it won't be for long.

  4. My house is cosy n tidy n lit for Christmas and I've almost finished a hat for Miss 22 for Christmas - it's ok she won't read this! We are having actifry chips and left over cold roast beef n peas for tea. I'm almost set for Christmas - just a few bits to wrap and a few cards to put up. Perfect. You sound so settled and happy today x
