I have been very excited this week.
Our new garden waste bin has arrived. It might not look exciting to you but it is going to change the way I garden. It will be collected every two weeks from February to November. EVERY 2 WEEKS!!!!!!!!!
No more packing the car full of old compost bags of garden trimmings with dubious things leaking out of the bottom. No more tedious journeys to the tip, sorry, Civic Amenity Site, with half a shrub sticking in my ear and an ant colony followed by a snail trying to make a break for freedom out of the driver's window. I can drag it around as I chop and pull weeds with gay abandon and fill it to the brim. The neighbours will not recognise our garden. I am one very happy bunny.
I have finished knitting my stripy cardi but it needs buttons and a block so I'll show you that when it's completely finished. I pulled out my flip-top gloves and decided to take the flip off ~ it squashed my fingers together, undo the ribbing on the finger and just knit them normally.
I finished the first off quickly ~ I rather like the effect that the different colour finger tips have ~ and I'm working my way up second hand.
Not that I need warm gloves at the moment, 3 days of frost has given away again, to rain and greyness.
Righto I'm off to my 'Body Blitz' class which I will not enjoy so I'll see you again soon.
Bye for now........Clicky Needles.
P.S. I'm sorry the font has gone weird I wrote part of this post on my iPad and it doesn't want to change.
