Alien I love the wool!!!! Looks fab!!!! How old is the teaching g for? Bud- seems like the ice cream was well deserved Knit&flee- poor you with the sleeping. Trip back to the des then! What an inconvenience for you. Stakreem - can't wait to see your bag!! Crafty Nannie - look forward to seeing your purses Goose- agree with the patience with the blanket although I've started a side project of using up all the funky colored wool I have to make a blanket in crochet. I can't crochet that much. I only know DC will that work well with a blanket or will be be more like a mat?

    Hello ladies Today the boys had there sports day and it was roasting 26 or so. My neck is crisp got home about 1.30 had a sleep then went back to collect the boys.

    Thinking Thursday.

    Afternoon ladies. Well what a very hot day we've had here in Stanmore!!! The last couple days I've been busy painting the hall upstairs :/ I have no idea why I decided to start it in this heat .... Although I did have the summer holidays in my head which is looming in a couple weeks lol. This morning I went to town with a friend to help her choose an outfit for the concert she she going to on Sunday. I then picked up youngest from nursery. Then my other friend popped over this,afternoon for some lunch. Then picked up my other two boys, and finally made filled fresh pasta with sauce. Phew!!!! OH turn to bath the boys and I think it will be undies to bed in this heat for them. I will do a bit of knitting tonight! I will, I will finish this cards Stakreem- your circle looks fab!!!!

    Morning. Today is a lovely day weather wise. I'm on day two of having a painful headache . I went bed at 9pm last night as it's was throbbing Although the boys cheer me up.

    Morning ladies. The sun is shining here in stanmore. The boys are at school. I have a basket of ironing to do and one basket to put away but I'm just not going to do it lol. I'm just not in a very good mood today. Aaron is home today. Feel bad on him as I should get him out but I haven't the energy. I will take him out tomorrow. Although I will venture out into the garden and have lunch out there. Nearly finished the first sleeve. BBL

    Buonasera Well I did do nothing most of the day. I've had the most annoying headache all day. I even had a nap about 2pm before I had to pick up the boys. The headache is still looming. So I'm going to knit in bed with a cuppa. Been very quiet on here. Crafty Nannie- sorry to hear about the funeral. Your granddaughter looks happy. Glad it was a great day out. Alien wear knits - enjoys your crafts

    SUNDAY 🌹

    Morning ladies Having my morning coffee in bed with my knitting. Halfway up first sleeve. The boys have had breakfast and are now in their room playing with Lego while watching Sunday morning Telly. The plan for today is to get the boys out. Maybe a family bike ride. Can't venture out too far as our car is in the garage still.

    Afternoon ladies Tracey Ooooo a new tv. And definitely do not pass up a chance to have some knitty time as that would be a crime. Su2ie 9 weeks!!!!! Eeeeeeeeek. I will enjoy the tales as the weeks progress!!!! I will keep an eye out for the dresses. Well we gave the school fete a miss as it's been raining since 11, alternating between light and heavy. We decided to go to the local supermarket to get some movie treat bits and stuff to make some cakes. I'll be picking up my needles after this as all my jobs are done.

    Morning ladies. In bed with a coffee. Saturday mornings have to be a more child affair. They boys get a cereals oat so simple bar and a banana till 9am then we go downstairs for breakfast! The sun is shining. I give up on the weather forecast as it says one thing and does another. It's the schools fun day today so fingers cross for the weather. This is the older twos one. So bigger and should have more to do.... Today is homework, washing and prepping dinner, then we are off to the school. I'm on the first sleeve for my cardigan. Feel like it is taking me forever. Eliza- I hope your aunts pain is subsiding. The fabric sounds great! Suzzana- enjoy your walk, supervising and knitting Goose- those dresses are fantastic x

    Friday (Venerdì)

    Buongiorno ladies I've been up since 6am. I just woke up and couldn't sleep, so a mocha in bed then I'll have a shower. My friend is treating me out to lunch today lucky me!! So no HW today .. Shame that My cardigan is taking longer than expected. Will try to move along with that later. Hard to fit knitty time in with all the stuff I have to do around the house and for the boys. Aaron's fun day at school today from 3pm, but don't hold much hope for the weather. Well have a nice day

    Friday (Venerdì)

    Buonasera So I went to my friends this morning to have a relaxing day pfffft. Walked into her house and she was knew deep in decluttering and her OH left all the kitchen stuff in the hall and only done one coat of cutting in on the walls. So bags over trainers and I started finishing off the first coat in the kitchen. Then we went to lunch and had a very filling pie and chips Went to the school for the fun day and the weather held out. Then home and made dinner. Now the boys are on the wii. I offered to give hubby a foot massage (what a lucky man!) Then hopefully get some knitty time in. Knot&flee- hope you had a lovely day Su2ie- 8 WEEKS!!!!! I feel,for you. Bud- I'm glad your nose is easing up Tracey- Hope you had a lovely chilled day. I still say we swap a day hair sounds lovely. Craftynannie- fingers crossed for your granddaughter for Sunday. Eliza- love the rainbow knit!! Bet you are glad it's finished. How sad about the care home. The workers have to be resilient I guess. When I am at work (oct) my profession is caring for terminally ill children usually with end of life or palliative care. Suzzana- awwww bless her! Love the pattern on the cardi BBL
