8 more sleeps to go,
8 more sleeps till Christmas,
8 more sleeps till the big fat fellow, comes down your chimney, and leaves you presents, and drinks your beer,
8 more sleeps till Christmas.
Every morning at 7:30 this song plays ( obviously with a different number!!)
It is now firmly stuck in my head, on a continuous loop! Grrrrrrrr!
Well on to other things.
We had a power cut the other evening.
Apart from being cold, it was quite a lot of fun.
Having to use the hob to make tea and hot chocolate.
J had never experienced a power cut before. Lucky boy!
We played cards, told stories of how things have changed since P and I were kids.
It was nice to have the time together.
I’ve been learning how to work the granny ripple pattern.
A couple of frustrating false starts!
Starting to get the hang of it.
Next it was time to take the plunge, and do it for real.
Yay it worked!
It’s a little bit smaller than our bed, so by the time I add the border, it should fit.The pattern is a mixture of 2 other patterns I found. I will try write up a pattern with photos, but I’m not sure how long it will take. The pattern isn’t hard, just a bit fiddly at the beginning, but once you’re past that it flows beautifully.
Till next time.
