That’s lucky

A few days ago, my pal Fenny announced that she had begun decluttering for 2009. One of the items that she was getting rid of was a book on crochet. I know that I have to get to grips with crochet some time, I do hate to be defeated by anything – so I said I would give it a home.

Yesterday, I learned that Craft Club is going to be crocheting  for the foreseeable future.

Today, Fenny’s copy of New Directions in Crochet : A Diagrammed Course to Easier Crocheting with More Than 200 Designs and Patterns arrived…

…The Fates are at work, people!

Thank you, Fenny. The pot holders will arrive one day…

In a related vein, I asked in a Ravelry group that I subscribe to if anybody had spare baby yarn that I could use for my crochet class. It is already on its way to me.

Where do all these yawning gaps come from? Aha – this time I have the answer – I have been busy updating Scattered Thoughts! After a couple of very long posts, time and energy were lacking for coming here to write and as little else had happened other than a shopping delivery or two, it seemed unimportant.Also spending far too much time at Facebook, which I am trying to give up but it keeps onContinue readingHere, there, everywhere – and nowhere at all

The Cold Light of Day

The Cold Light of Day

Nell’s excessive drinking and urination have ramped up considerably. Hence I was outside at a little past 2 am this morning, by which time the car was already covered in a sparkling frost. On the 6 am toilet run, the world was looking fairly well white all over (as viewed through the window from my bed, that is). When we first came house-hunting around here there was snow on the ground (apparently a once inContinue readingThe Cold Light of Day

An interesting morning. Up and at ’em we went to Intermarché to fuel up and to buy some food for when we arrive home. They were queuing outside the door for what appeared to be controlled entry. There were queues for fuel too. “We’re not that desperate” we said and set off for home. It… Continue reading October 29, 2020 at 10:24AM

    You’re not going to believe this – but I know Fenny too! I used to be on (UMRA) with her, until it all got a bit high volume for me. Tell her Chuckler says hello ;))

      Hiya Chuckler, good to see you again 🙂
      I’m not around much on usenet at the moment due to not renewing my subscription to the Berlin server and my laptop being in for repair (or gone to silicon heaven). There are a few umrats on Livejournal, too, which is where I mostly rant and ramble these days.

        Lovely to hear from you! I shall have to investigate LiveJournal, then – see who else I can bump into 🙂

        All the best for 2009!
