This has been a confusing week of extra days off and things being on the wrong day but who can complain about extra days off?? Not me, because today is one – yay! I have already made a small dent in my “To Do” list and the sun is shining. There are yarn related things on that list for later today – hurrah!
Monday was a Bank Holiday here in the UK so everyone was off – we celebrated by going to the cinema to see Guardians of the Galaxy 2 and later finding popcorn in our underwear. Then Tuesday felt like Monday. Is there a word to describe the confusion following a Bank Holiday??? Someone should invent one. I never know what day of the week it is!! “Day-fusion” maybe?? “Day-fuddlement” perhaps? Yep, like that.
This week I am dayfuddled.
It didn’t help with Cubs and Beavers being on a different day too. But this weekend is exciting because it’s the Festival of Folk and Little J has a gig again. He’s performing with the Ukulele Orchestra on Saturday afternoon. I do LOVE the Festival of Folk. See here and here for past visits. Fingers crossed for good weather.
I have been working on my freeform crochet again this week, but I also picked up the two-at-a-time socks I started for Mr P. The socks have been neglected for some time. I find knitting boring – it doesn’t grow fast enough. I really want some mindless crochet that I can just fly along with but I need to finish some things first before I start anything else. I am hoping to get something finished later today but I will show you in a future post. Here are some pictures…
There has been some more tricky “filling-in” of the gaps, but there’s not so much left to do now. Getting rather excited about it here!!! Lots of sock knitting to do (snores quietly).
I am continuing with “The Plague Charmer” by Karen Maitland. It’s moving along – a mysterious woman has arrived and the first cases of the plague have struck the village. I want to know what is going to happen… which is always a good sign when reading.
