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.
I would have been spitting feathers if I had to sit around for two hours and forgot to bring something to doReplyDelete
It was split into sections and there was some walking around the hospital, which is becoming a rival to the Hampton Court Maze.Delete
How frustrating forgetting your knitting. Hospital visits are never easy or quick are they. I do hope they find nothing serious and that you feel better very soon Pam.ReplyDelete
I feel very good, apart from the odd twinge of Gardeners back Ache, so am keeping positive.Delete
I so understand how you feel about waiting with nothing to do with my hands. It seems such a waste of my time. If I haven't a book or some knitting/ mending I make lists!!ReplyDelete
I had a magazine that someone gave me with 2 crosswords but no pen. duh.Delete
I find I can't concentrate when I am at the hospital and having to wait. I just tend to flick through magazines. Not even reading really.ReplyDelete
Your garden is sounding lovely.
Bet ya do buy some more yarn....lol-x-
Socks are my go to "waiting" knit or sometimes a hat. Just mindless round and round.Delete
Such a shame about the forgotten project, it certainly would have made the time go quicker. Hope all the tests went well. Enjoy the yarn shop today, I wouldn't be able to resist.ReplyDelete
I didn't make it to any shop except the garden centre, I spent all of my voucher and had a good day planting it all. Once that was done,along with a few other jobs all I wanted to do was shower and relax.Delete
I have to say, that it won't make the effort to go somewhere for a lousy 10% discount....it's not worth using my petrol! as it amounts to pennies.....ReplyDelete
Considering the overheads that a small business has a 10% discount, on already very reasonable prices, is not a bad deal at all. Deb's keeps her prices as low as she can while making a profit and passes on all her bargain buy discounts to her customers. We saw yarn selling at Wonderwool at almost twice the price that Debs sells it. Knitting is my hobby and is all about pleasure and a visit to my local yarn shop is a treat for body and soul to me.Delete
I, too, would not be able to resist new yarn! Your garden sounds lovely (& yummy). Hope all your test results are good.ReplyDelete
My garden is looking good, all it really needs now is some rain. We have had just 2 showers in the past 37 days, and this is Wales.Delete
I just chuckled to myself as I read your list about what you are going to plant and visualised you harvesting little tubs of cream cheese from your Philadelphus! I like to people watch in the hospital, but am always mindful of my beloved nanna telling me it's rude to stare!ReplyDelete
Now if I could grow cream cheese I would have to grow little salted crackers as well.ReplyDelete
