So It was a lads-in-charge kind of a weekend. My partner in girly crime has been away, staying with a friend, so it definitely turned a bit Boys Night Out here: a Thai Green Curry cooking, action movie watching, cricket discussing, try a bit of plumbing, man planning ("We could build a kit car in the garage. If we had a garage") kind of a weekend
I tried to redress the balance by having a cast on a new sock (no pictures - this pair is a gift), try out my new stitch markers, wearing a new necklace kind of a weekend. And I held the side up on my own until we got to Granny's on Sunday and she invited everybody to spend a retro afternoon polishing. So it was also a "Bring your own Brasso and dusters please, there's work to be done" kind of weekend. We cleaned and tidied, we cooked dinner, we talked knitting and books. And then we drove home, minding our teeth as we chewed on some Maoms, to read a bit of the paper before bed.
I spotted a piece about "Swinter dressing". Swinter? More than one season, all at the same time. That's what I'm thinking this morning. I'd like to put on my blue poncho as I head out here; because, well, it's new and I like it. But I'm seriously considering a raincoat over the top..
...and yes, I am wearing my new glasses more. They have all kinds of add on benefits: hiding bags under eyes, for example. Plus, being able to read the small print? A good way to start the week..
Last week Jo, Deb, Helena, Jane, Mary-Lou, Ladkyis, Fiona, Sheena, Karen, Barbara, Julia, Alison, Alexa and Liz gave us a taste of the start of their week. We're all waving and wishing you a good one, and inviting you to post too. Happy Monday!
