Off I went to the hospital,knowing very well that there would be lots of, "just wait over there" and plenty of "just take a seat while I check this" not to mention "we are not quite ready for you, please wait until we call you".
And I Forgot My Knitting.
I could have spit I was so annoyed with myself.
2 whole hours lost, yes I timed it, never to be had again.
That's the body of a sock, or the hand of a mitten or even half a hat.
Put it behind me and let it go.
Now I have to wait for the results, I will have my knitting for that though.
Tomorrow is love your local yarn shop, or something along those lines. I hope to go over to see Debs.
There is a slight problem though, she is offering 10% off all yarn for the day.
I have soooo much that I dare not buy any more, there really is no room in the house.I even have 2 drawers full in Francesca,s room and some under her bed.
I spent some time in the garden when I got back today, nothing heavy, just some gentle weeding and a bit of planning. A corner has been cleared of some overgrown and very leggy plants. I will be putting a Howgate Wonder Apple tree there, if I can find one that is.
Then in front of the hedgehog house there will be a gap when the dead Cherry tree comes out. To shelter the little house I plan on planting a group of shrubs, a Philadelphus and a Weigela and something else, undecided as yet. Whatever I get it will probably be scented.
After 3 years I finally feel that the garden is mine, there is nothing left from before except the lawn, and most of that has gone.
I will only grow salad stuff and fruit from now on, my rhubarb has done well this year, and is still going great guns and all the fruit trees are setting fruit. The Jostaberry is smothered in fruit and the gooseberries are looking promising, as for the strawberries, they are smothered in flowers and the sound of bees buzzing around almost drowns out the road noise.
I have set first early potatoes in bags and some of those long banana shallots round one of the raised beds, the herbs will stay and possibly some Nantes carrots in pots. I have set some climbing Blue Lake French Beans, just enough for 1 wigwam frame and that will be it.
I have a voucher for Wyevale so will head there first thing tomorrow and then see how the day pans out.
That's all for now, I have a pair of socks that need some attention tonight.
