It’s been a while since I posted anything.. life has been pretty hectic..!
Personal stuff is taking it out of me at the moment to be perfectly honest. I’ve been running around like a headless chicken getting things sorted.
Sis and I went to a cousin’s engagement last weekend and I picked up a stomach bug along the way… ouch..
M (my sis) has now found a new studio flat to rent and thankfully we handed in the correct paper work on Friday afternoon and on Friday evening she got a phonecall to say that it was all hers, pending references etc. She was way relieved!!! So was I! No more house/flat hunting!!
The funny thing is, it was at the beginning of July that she handed in her notice to her current landlord. This is without having a place to move to!! Mad girl. Thankfully, we work in the same area, so she can come lilve with me for a week or so until she can move into the new place. Phew.. lucky for her I’m around!! 😀 Only messing.. that’s what sister’s are for.
What else have I been up to? Not a lot really. I’ve been busy with work and then all the personal stuff crept up on me…
I found a shop in Thatcham (where I work) that has some nice bits and pieces. The place is called Needlecraft Emporium (I think) and while it’s needlecraft area is massive and full of little surprises, it’s wool/yarn section is not so big and not so full of surprises.. it was ok, but generally novelty yarn and a few Paton’s DK… Sirdar and I can’t remember what else. I think I’ll pop in again in a few weeks.
Got to resist temptation.. I’ve been doing fabulously well with the stashalong and I haven’t bought any yarn other than for the Secret Summer Santa and some needles, so I can get on with my stash busting expedition!!! 🙂 Me good girl.
Finally got all the bits and pieces together for my spoilee (SSS) and I have the parcel waiting to go. Ollie will send it tonight when he gets in. Such a darling. 🙂
More abour projects and stuff in the Knitting area!!!
