I have had a busy week as we run up towards Christmas. The visit to Wales was lovely, so nice to have someone coooking for me, and my brother is an excellent cook. We visited Mum and she was in good spirits. Mum has Alzheimer’s, and we went on one of her better more lucid days. She knew we were her children and was able to tell us that she loved us very much. I think this will help us no end in the future, as she had become very bad-tempered with us as her health deteriorated. A happy memory to treasure.
The French Windows have been rescheduled a total of four times now. Currently due for installation 8.30 on Monday. Humph!
Mr E is under the weather, we have few medical appointments lined up for him, please keep us in your prayers.
Mr B and Ms G should be with us tomorrow for the all important de clutter!
I met with June and using the appointment numbers we had dished out at the repair cafes had a little draw for a prize, namely a £20 voucher for a meal at the Penny Bank Cafe in Kirkbymoorside, here being drawn by Phil the proprieter , and ably assisted by your truly. I don’t often appear on my own blog. Picture by June.
I have finished the secret santa knitting with the pink hat and an owl shaped lavender bag, made from the leftover wool from my Dartmoor lamb.
Soon have that ready to post.
Now on the needle I have a baby toy.
A last-minute Christmas gift for this little chap, here sporting his Nana made blanket, picture by his Dad Mr J.
Hard to believe he’s only 7 weeks, quite a bruiser!
So, time for me to press on, I have some Boxing Day Chutney to make. Turns out it is a Kirstie recipe. I think you know you have arrived when you just need a first name for people to know who you are.. Nigella or Delia for example. For non UK readers that is Kirstie Allsop who is a property guru come crafty type TV person, Nigella Lawson and Delia Smith are TV chefs.
Anyway, enough chatter from me, over to you. If this is your first visit then please just jump into the comments, feel free to chat amongst your selves while I stir the cranberries, and get on with some knitting.
Have a great weekend and
