How are you all on this fine autumn day? I am grand, though I have swollen gums and galnds which are painful, but I am sure they will go soon, I hope anyway
The other day, John and I went to a deer park with our friends, and it was just wonderful. You could buy apples, that were grown there, to feed the deer, and you walked amongst them, they circled round you, and all clamoured after the apples which they loved! It was magical hand feeding the deer, and stroking them, and patting them, such beautiful gentle creatures
After we had fed and stroked the deer, we went into the hotel that is in the grounds to get ourselves cleaned up, and to have tea, which was lovely, it was a really enjoyable day
So, what else have I been doing, well, I have crocheted a pot cover for this fab Halloween plant that my dad and Pam brought up…
and I have been crocheting more sqaures, and joining them onto my settee throw, which is almost done, yay!!!!
I can not wait to get this finished and on the sette, I think it will look lovely and so cosy
The other day, I received my Sarah Raven catalog, and in it are some beautiful things, I particularly liked the tea cosies, but at £38, I think I’ll give those a miss, even if I do love them loads, lol …
Tomorrow, our cat, Whiskey, is going to the vets to get speyed, I hope she’ll be ok, I just know I am going to be worrieing myself sick about her, until we have her back home. She will have the cone on her head, bless her, to stop her biting her stitches, and we will have to keep her separate from our other pets, incase they get at her stitches, poor little thing!
I am really looking forward to the tv next week, as 2 programmes, which I am dieing to see, are coming on. The first is Kirsties Home Made Home, which is on this Tuesday, on Channel 4, at 8.00pm. I loved watching the last series of Kirsties Home Made Home, and Kirsties Home Made Christmas, I taped them, and still watch them. On this series, she is helping members of the public turn their homes into more of a home made home, and featured among the crafts in this series are curtain making, and crochet, woohoooo, cant wait! The other series I am looking forward too is Turn Back Time, which is on BBC1 on Tuesday at 9.00pm. It is reality, historical show, where members of the public are given the chance to work in shops, as they would of done from the Victorian times up until the 1970s, so that will be interesting to watch I have been watching the current series of Ladies Of Letters, which I love, such a gentle and funny comedy, does anyone else watch this?
As I was looking at my favourtie blogs today, I spotted on BellasCountry, some gorgeous blankets from Dunelm Mill. They are called Ditsy blankets, and are super soft, and the designs remind me very much of Cath Kidston. I am loving them, and am really hoping to buy one or two
Okey dokey, I am going to bake a lemon syrup cake now, then have a nice bath, put on my clean jimjams, and crochet
