I had the day off yesterday back to work at 5pm today for another 24 hour shift. Got the lawn mown yesterday and I did a 40 minute walk yesterday and today. I have said hello to everyone I have passed. My theory being some of these people may live on their own and if they are only allowed out once they might need a little chat. Mainly older ladies who have developed conversation beyond hello, lovely day 🌞
And that is the thing the weather is beautiful and it is so peaceful. The slower pace of life has a sort of holiday feel AND then you remember we are here because people are becoming so poorly or worse. 😷
We all clapped for the NHS last night. We all came together but not together which was very special. The sound of the clapping echoed across the river.
I have picked up the little jacket that I am making for N’s granddaughter who is due at the beginning of April. We will miss those first few weeks as we will not be able to visit 😥
I have been taking my knitting outside to enjoy the sunshine while I can. I am not a sun worshipper but believe a bit of UV does us good and so many do not have this opportunity at the moment.
My partner becomes a grandpa at the beginning of April. His daughter is expecting a little girl – I went to the Baby Shower last week. I have been working on a little cardi for her which I have finally finished this morning 😊
So this month I will be using up some of my baby yarn stash so as to have some bits and pieces to offer on the big day ☆☆☆
Maybe something in just one colour next so as I don’t have all of those ends to sew in…
I dragged this out yesterday afternoon, not because I am particularly fond of it or the old wood inside it but if it floats away over the fence it will be a piece of single-use plastic further down the river!
The river breached the flood defences the other night and neighbours round the corner have been evacuated!
I am cheering myself up by packing my gift for the baby shower on Saturday ♡♡♡
Apparently there could be another 10 days of this ☔☔☔
My week off started today. My plan was to make a start clearing up the mess in the garden but it has rained all morning and I am a fair weather gardener!!! However, I am glad I didn’t make a start as the river is rising again and guess what it is in the garden again 😣 really is getting rather boring…
So to keep myself amused I dug out a baby blanket that I keep listing on my WIP list but do nothing about. I think it last appeared on my blog in the autumn. Anyway celebration time 🍻🍻🍻 I have just finished it 🎈🎈🎈
Rhubarb and custard baby blanket ♡
Feeling quite pleased that it is done but I am already thinking about colour combos for another one…
If the weather continues like this I will have no WIPs left or maybe that is just a bit of wishful thinking on my part 🤔
