Sunday 27 March 2022



It has been a busy week for me. I usually need to pace myself  by having a day or 2 at home after being out for a day doing some grocery shopping or attending an appointment. However, this past week has been rather hectic with committments, appointments and the regular grocery shopping for my parents and ourselves. I still need to book my car in for a service and it looks like this coming week is very busy too. The brief arrival of cool weather was not kind to me again and having no time to rest meant that my FMS acted up. Hubby is in bed again, same as 3 weeks ago but this time his pain is under control. At least the weather has warmed up again and I took advantage of the sunshine yesterday by replanting my pots on the verandah and cleaning more windows.

My plant stand needs to be sanded and repainted again as the sea air tends to rust things quickly.  The pot stand was my grandmother's so I try to preserve it and the tub was my dad's childhood bath. 

Last night I completed the final wavey row of my blanket and started the 1st crocheted border. I selected the cream colour from my stash to do the 1st border as I thought it would define the borders from the rest of the blanket when I add the blanket colours for the other rows of borders.


Unfortunately the colours look rather washed out in the pic. They are a lot darker in reality.

My daughter has been enjoying crocheting more cute things. These 2 chickies are now in the hands of my grandsons.

If you are an avid reader of Fiona McIntosh you will love her latest novel that I have now finished reading. 

Well, hubby seems content at the moment and I have managed to do this post so I think I will try to do a bit more crocheting now. 

Enjoy the rest of the weekend and stay safe.
