Once again linking with Natalie at Threads and Bobbins to share 7 pictures from my week.
Sunday 10 January was grotty till fairly late on in the day, just in time for a pretty sunset, hopefully an end to all the rain.
But not before I had discovered that my old wellies had sprung a leak, cue new wellie shopping on Tuesday
and some hyacinths to brighten up the house. Bit of a blue theme this week.
On Thursday the weather did this
YUK! Time for a hunkering down day!
Last week I nearly shared a really boring picture of my thank you letters ready to post. I was all set to say that I am sad that people can’t be bothered to write thank you letters anymore, but it came out all wrong. So I didn’t. Then on Friday this came in the post for me.
Now I knitted some hats for the Innocent Age UK campaign last year, and wrote on my blog that I wondered if I was totally wasting my time because each hat equaled only a 25p donation to Age UK, and I could have saved myself the effort and just donated the cash myself. Well everyone was wonderfully reassuring that it totally was worth the effort. Inside this card I am told that 800,000 hats were received meaning a donation of £200,000 to Age UK. You were so right,that is a sum worth having.
Inside the card was a handwritten note addressed Dear Cathy and thanking me, it was surrounded by Kisses.
Net result, I shall knit hats for the 2016 campaign. The power of saying Thank You. I rest my case.
Meantime look out for be-hatted Smoothies in February
Anyone remember our Pot Hole Saga? And the bruhaha to get our (private)road fixed? Well the pothole should be fixed on Thursday coming. But in the meantime , a sub plot has developed. To be known as Ditchgate. The theory of some of our roads residents is that the pothole was called by a ditch which is on the school side of our road, that has not been Dredged, which means the water comes off the field reaches the undredged ditch, can’t go anywhere and instead comes down our road and causes a pothole.
You can see how full it looks thanks to the fact that the water in there froze on Saturday.
So there has been a flurry of letters and people staring at the ditch all week, the Town Clerk, the Head Teacher and the Chair of the School Governors. Emails have been sent!!
This is set to run for some time my friends.
Last photo of the week. I planted some bulbs in the Autumn under a tree in the grass. Whoopee, they are appearing, you may have to look carefully, but undoubtedly they are coming up. Spring is just round the corner.
Hoping you all have a wonderful week.
