Just as I was feeling almost tickety boo Ben decided to see how strong his tummy muscles were.
The answer was very. He managed to projectile vomit right across the sitting room.
Good job my tummy is even stronger!
Carpet cleaned, thank goodness for the Vax, Ben settled in a clean bed and I slumped into the sofa.
Some therapy of a yarny nature was called for. The front of my jumper was finished but rather than start on the sleeves I picked up The Blanket Pattern.
I made a start on the first 16 units,
I got round 3 done on 2 of the 16 and then had to stop as Ben decided that the only place that he could possibly be was on my lap.
The potted Hosta,s are doing well in the wet weather, next year I will have to either pot them on or find a shady spot in the ground for them.
This deep pink Penstemon is also thriving in a pot, it was a gift and was unlabelled, this autumn will see it in the ground.
The pale pink are doing well
as are the almost red ones. I will always have Penstemons in my garden, they were a favourite of my Mother.
The ground cover plants are thriving,
the Fuchsias are just coming into flower, there is a wispy forget me not growing with this one. I hope that it sets seed for next year.
There are some glorious Iris flaunting their beauty and a random Lily has crept in from somewhere. That rose in the background is a very pale pink and has an amazing perfume.
My "snow on the mountains" is also starting to flower, my Granny had this in her front garden, it used to cascade and froth everywhere.
I have knitted up another pair of socks and made a start on yet another. I find the basic pattern very easy to knit and I am almost to the point of not looking at the pattern at all. My mother used to knit them while watching her soaps and I never saw her with a pattern.
I am woefully behind on blog reading and am resigned to just starting again from today. What I have missed will have to be let go, otherwise I will forever be 3 days out.
My commiserations go to Rachel Radiostar from Eternally 28 who has had a really bad case of Dehli Belly. Get well soon my friend.
Now it is time to check outside, I have the whirly thingamajig full of washing and another load in the machine. The coastal fog cleared dramatically this morning and I have a few days to make up for.
The other chores are done, kitchen and bathroom deep cleaned...don't want any bugs lingering. Floors all vacuumed and even the polish has had an outing. I may well strip the bed as well, it was a touch sticky last night.
On that note I am offski.
