Life in General – The past week

Well what a week of under achievement!.

Having come down with the worst cold I’ve ever had ( no exaggeration) I achieved absolutely nothing this week apart from sniffing, sneezing, blowing my nose and feeling sick all the time.

Not only have I been feeling miserable but the weather has been atrocious.  It has been so windy and rainy here is feels like April showers on a high.

So I need to catch up on everything starting here.

Firstly I’ve been nominated for another Blog award by who has nominated me for the One Lovely Blog Award.  Thanks – I do appreciate it and I will pass it on as soon as I can.

Not only did I have this cold but so did Julie who was going to tutor the Knitting workshop on Saturday with me but she was just as ill as me, so we cancelled our workshop.  All the ladies were lovely when we cancelled the workshop, we will re-arrange it ASAP.

Above are  some of the things we were going to cover in our workshop.

We have also had  Petes mother down (“mother in law”) for a long weekend as it her 85th Birthday last friday on the 15th.  They’ve gone out for a walk so hence I’m catching up with my blog.

The weather today is calm – no wind – yippee and sunny so far.  I walked the dog this morning and it was a pleasure to get out and about without wearing wellies ( although there is lots of mud and puddles around) and a raincoat.
