This Week!

Well I knew it was going to be busy and it was! The car had its annual service and MOT, and I had to go shopping in York whilst I waited. Please note the had to, more of that on Wednesday.

My son Mr J flew back from holiday and the lovely Ms M had said YES when he proposed. Youngest son Mr B and partner Ms G have exchanged contracts on their first house. And Mr T has been offered a new job. Not often all three have happy news and all at once.

I have managed a little knitting,

Pink one is for my new step granddaughter, Miss S who is Ms M’s daughter. And the little one , well that’s for Secret Santa.

I went to Wales to visit my brother and my Mum. I delivered the blanket to Mum’s care home, with very strict washing instructions, Rachel.

The care home Mum is staying in. Mum has Alzheimer’s. She recognised me but I noticed didn’t use my name. Her memory is very poor now. She knows she grew up in Liverpool and if told of a story she told me before, remembers it and can add details. But she is well looked after and she has lots of company. The day centre she used to attend when still in her own home has closed down now, so goodness knows how she would have been if she had not chosen to go to the care home.

My brother is well. We went out for a lovely pub dinner at the Lamb and Flag near Abergaveny .

My brother Mr P and his tagliatelle dinner. He couldn’t finish it!

Mrs L, my SIL. That’s chicken and ribs and she couldn’t finish hers either.

And that’s my chicken pie and I ate it all UP. YUM.

From Wales I went to see my son Mr T. All are well, and Little Miss F was thrilled with her new blanket. It was very good for hiding treasures under! And for keeping little girls snug. Strict washing instructions given.

Thank you Rachel.

So home again yesterday to view the new sofa which Mr E had to organise whilst I was away. It looks lovely. Pictures next week. And I had mail.

This is a Christmas present for Mrs T. From the Wool Warehouse, an Attic 24 weekend bag kit . The instructions look good and as always it’s nicely presented. My only criticism is it took them ages to get it to me.

AND a present from me to Me.

Made by our lovely Bekki at The Dartmoor Yarn Company

Well every good Nana deserves a present!

The coming week should be a bit calmer.

Hope you all had a good week and enjoy this one too. And for everyone going through hard times, just remember when you hit rock bottom there’s only one way to go. UP.

Inspired by Thread and Bobbins I have taken pictures of my week again. None of the topics would run to a full post but they show how my days pass by, which is much quicker than they used to!

First of all we had one one of theses.

41 years!  ssh! So then we had a lovely meal out to get over the shock Celebrate!

5.8.15 009

That is mushroom and brie wellington and new potatoes and carrots and parsnips.Yummy!

There was some baking this week, with the masses of blackcurrants still coming from Dad’s garden. There were Blackcurrant flapjacks, recipe was for blackcurrant energy bars but I changed so many of the ingredients I won’t show the link. Now they look messy, all my bakes do, but by golly are they sticky fantastic!

And blackcurrant teabread, I used white caster sugar as that was what was in my cupboard.

5.8.15 002

And it was very tasty.

I don’t know what has got into Mr E, he keeps making me order more wool, Why, I have plenty, it has to stop, really it does!!!!

I NEED to make Little Miss F a Peppa Pig jumper. Had the devil’s own job tracking down a supplier who had all the colours I needed. Somewhere I had read about the Wool Warehouse. I was so impressed. They were cheaper than anywhere else. The parcel arrived in double quick time and it looked so lovely when it arrived.

In its own bag. Aaah.

I finally finished knitting and stitching together all the bits for my two colour cardigan. We had a trip to Boyes in Malton. I found the perfect buttons.

Now look really carefully at this picture, can you see the problem? Answer at the end!!

We went strawberry picking at our local Strawberry Fields fruit farm. By golly they are super.

9.8.2015 008

That is seven pictures. But I seem to spend most of my time outside in the garden , weeding, so here’s an extra picture of my handywork.

5.8.15 013

Did you see the problem. A button with just one hole. The moral of the tale is always check your buttons for the requisite number of holes!! Hope you enjoyed my week, I certainly did.
