I hope everyone has had an enjoyable Easter.I have been very lucky as my son and family have been holidaying here this week and lending us much-needed moral support. I am pleased to tell you that Mr E had a major operation on Tuesday and is now recovering as per schedule. He will be in hospital for a while longer and I shall be zipping down for visiting also for a while longer. The relief I feel is enormous, light at the end of the tunnel and all that. Thank goodness for family, friends, blogs and yarn.
Thank you for all your kind thoughts.
However,it was Easter and there were things to be done.
Belinda the dragon duly made herself a nest on top of a blanket and Easter eggs.
Little Miss F was taken under her wing immediately.
Not quite certain why Little Miss F needed the kitchen stool or why my Easter rag doll was in a star wars thingy but there we are. And the duster was there as something else that was required.
The dragon is now called Sparkly.
There was an Easter egg hunt in the garden between rain
showers cloud bursts.
We even squeezed in a trip to Whitby and I finally got to eat a meal at the famous Magpie Cafe.
It was a very good fish and chips too. The children’s activity packs were well worth opting for too, and the grandchildren were kept occupied during the wait for food.
To things yarny- I managed to complete the back of the cardigan I was knitting, but Master T had apparently won an enormous basket of Easter goodies at school. Little Miss F decided I was just the person to make this unicorn which was included.
So of course I set to work. The body is done, and Little Miss F stuffed it. I had hoped to finish it before they went home, but sometimes even knitting is too much.
Mrs T also returned these four , now too small.
That fabric is too nice she said, and she didn’t know any little girls to pass them onto, maybe I could make them into something else… what? Or maybe I could put them in the airing cupboard to marvel that I ever made them in the first place. Ideas anyone.
I have my sister-in-law coming to stay on Sunday for a few days. I have to clear the guest bedroom of all the yarn, fabric, threads etc etc that I had arranged to my satisfaction on the bed! That’s this morning gone for sure.
I shall be glad of her company.
I am glad of your company, thank you for stopping by. I may not have been reading as many blogs as usual or throwing in my tuppence worth, but I am still here and I will be around from time to time and dipping into your blogs.
Thank you, and do stay for a bit of a chat.
