Should it suprise me that I’m working at glacial pace on this pair of socks? Probably not. So I started them in June and I’m only just turning the second heel!!! Even worse, I’ve just realised that I’ve turned the first one incorrectly. I knew it looked wrong somehow. If they weren’t destined for my husband they would be going to the great lily pond in the sky.
I’ve learned to surf! Yes, I took my 34 year old bones surfing and even managed to catch a wave and stand on the board for more than a second or two.
Cosmo Castle has become DIY Central with a new wc on the way. What should have been a little job to replace a toilet has become a complete overhaul, including new floor tiles that Handy Husband is figuring how to lay. I’m keeping the fact that I’ve laid a tile floor in a previous life. Naughty I know but he has to learn.
And let me introduce you to my final excuse. Meet Joan and Roy. They are both hens – Roy doesn’t realise that she has a boys name and I’m not intending to tell her. I’ve been spending a lot of time supervising these two at the bottom of the garden, trying to grow vegetables while these two dig them up.
