My usual routine had to be put back an hour today, the SO had to go for a routine asthma clinic check up. Normally this is in our village surgery but today he had to go 2 villages away. You have to allow plenty of time for the journey as the road is very narrow, has cars parked all over the show and carries a lot of traffic, lots of HGV,s.
Then of course you have to wait, and wait,and wait...At least that is the norm.Today we were in and out in record time and with a bit of elbow grease and go faster stripes I am all caught up. Herbie and Rufus had a delayed walk but just as long as ever, maybe even longer.
I added another 8 granny squares to the stack yesterday, I hope that a few more will fall off the hook later today. 62 is not a massive amount but they will have to be joined together and then a border crocheted on.
Fran's birthday is 19 days away and I would love to have it finished by then, if not well that's okay. It will just go into the festive box.
There is bright sunshine out today and it is very warm, doors and windows are open and it feels more like May than November. A day to tuck away in the memory bank, then it can be taken out and looked at when the rain, or worse, is hammering down in icy torrents.
The SO is busy shampooing rugs, They are not particularly dirty but Herbie and Ben like to roll on them so they need a freshen up and a nice clean scent.
I have tucked most of the summer clothes away and will not be making or buying any next year. I will do my usual January Sales undies shop, I don't go mad and by shopping the sales I can save a pretty penny.
There is enough yarn for another 12 months knitting and some crochet, along with a heap of fabric scraps that need using. Perhaps a couple of quilts to donate will happen. I took a heap of blankets to the CS a while ago and they were very grateful.
Since I added the small wicker chest of drawers to the sewing room my shelves are far less cluttered, I can now see with a glance what is there.
The little chest of drawers that live under the Horn Cabinet are the last thing to give me any grief. They need to stay in situ as they provide additional support to the lift up extension flap for quilting. If I left this table up all the time there would be no problem, but it is only used when I am quilting. When piecing or sewing it is in the way and takes up too much floor space. I am a moaning Minnie today, I step back, take that whinge back and say instead, I am very grateful to have my cabinet.
And on that note I bid you bye bye, there is tea to be made and drunk. Dinner is organised, Beany Burgers each stuffed with a chunk of cheese are resting in the fridge and I will make some sort of rice and veggy dish to have with them.
