I haven’t posted for a few days because of a chest infection. I think that had I been working I would have gone to the doctor for antibiotics and then struggled back to the office. This week, however, I have the days all to myself so I have been resting, reading, knitting and sleeping in a little. Coughing at night is still ongoing but I’m sure a few more quiet days will take care of it.

Finished a little matching hat to go with the singlet.

The above pattern is available from Kiwi Angels on Facebook.

Made Libby Weaver’s roast salad when my vegetarian son visited last night.

Now that Spring is on its way, there are a lot of things to do around the house like painting and  water blasting so i need to galvanise myself into action. I am going to have a go at regrouting around the sink…I’m sure there is a You tube video on it.

However, I would much rather read a book or do some Christmas tiles.

I decorated these old blue bottles some time ago and still enjoy having a few wee herbs and daisies in them each day.

New Christmas material to begin experimenting making them into tiles.

I adore Kirstie Allsopp and Phil Spencer on Location, Location, Location but especially like Kirstie’s home made programmes. So today, while I had breakfast I watched Kirstie making Christmas gifts. I believe she is from a very well off family so I like that she makes things and sews and bakes when she could easily afford to buy piles of “stuff”.

In recent years at work I have become averse to buying two dollar plastic rubbish for silly staff parties and this year out of necessity as well as enjoyment I hope to make most of my Christmas presents.

I still went to the cheap Tuesday movie though with my friend. I am not terribly keen on American movies but I enjoyed this one.

The slugs are still dying in the yeast and sugar so that’s good. FG
