Good morning and how are you this Monday morning?
I'm just back from my daily walk along the beach and can confirm that I am now wide awake and ready to go. It is a lovely day here at the moment, bright blue skies and sunny but just a tad fresh!
I'm not in work till Saturday this week so I am planning on catching up with a few folk I don't normally get chance to see and also getting a little craft time.
Did you watch the rugby at the weekend?
The France Italy game was close, I did think at one point Italy would win, it was edge of the seat stuff in the second half. The Calcutta cup was not such an exciting game unfortunately. In this house there are two support England and two Scotland so the banter makes it more fun. Then yesterday the Ireland Wales match was a surprise result, both sides playing well.
As promised last week I told you I would be starting a new project at the weekend and I mentioned my secret purchase whilst buying my eldest boy's study books.
I looked at this book when I first started crocheting and oohed and arhed at the pictures but not understanding the patterns at all. A couple of years down the line and I am now a lot happy so I thought why not give the book a go.
How cute are those animals?
Now can you tell which one caught my eye first?
I got the body done on Saturday but yesterday I reached a good part in my book so in between the rugby and housework my nose was firming in that instead. I do like to get a little reading done on a Sunday, well it is the day of rest!
Then of course there is the Sunday night TV viewing, is anyone else watching Call the Midwife?
Oh me, I have been in tears every episode this season, it is such a brilliant series, last night was a little too close to comfort as both my two were born by emergency section. On the upside they were both very healthy unlike the poor little soul last night.
Then of course there was the final episode of the epic War and Peace. It was so more enjoyable to watch than the book was to read. I have tried to read the book on numerous occasions but always end up losing interest. It's a bit of a slog!
The series on TV was brilliant, I found it fascinating, I don't know about you but epics like that always make me want to pick up a history book and find out what really happened.
Anyway that is all from me today, I have an appointment with the dentist this morning, gulp, so I better get ready. This afternoon I am hoping to enjoy a little crafting.
Enjoy your Monday.
