Yesterday after another gruelling session at the dentist, I arrived home still shaking and feeling very sorry for myself, to find a Christmas parcel in my letterbox.
This was a Christmas treat that I had sent to myself, but it came as an unexpected delight yesterday!
A box of beautiful Rowan DK cottons in my favorite colours....yay!!!!
I sat down immediately with a pot of tea and a pattern in my head, and crocheted quite happily for a couple of hours, forgetting all about the pain in my tooth.until Ian came home and said " have we time for a walk up the hill before tea"?
We have a hill behind our house, which Ian is continually clearing of gorse and thistle. It is his work of a lifetime. Yesterday as we trudged up the hill, Ian was slashing thistle and little gorse bushes as we went, with a few hints to me about doing the same. Pity we only have the one slasher! It makes for a good workout though. Next time I might pop the camera in my pocket and take some pics of the view to post.
