In a stroke of totally tillie genius I set the reminder on my phone to start on 27th October. So it didn’t remind me to do a blog post. So I didn’t do a blog post. You can see how that works, right?
Anyhoo. The phone & I have had a few words, I’ve apologised & we’re off again. Although I’ve got no work this week – zero hours contracts SUCK – so there might not be much to post about. On the other hand, the parentals are away until Weds & I’ve got loads & loads of hooking/stitching time to play with so there might be a bit of movement there I guess.
Weather: warmish, sunnyish. I went out to track down a prescription (be vewy vewy kwaiet, I’m huntin pwescwiptions!) and didn’t have to wear a jacket or nuthin, which was nice.
+ I bought more wine, always a good idea, particularly when one has the house to oneself.
Music: A new Alt-J playlist on spotify, bless ’em.
On my hook/needles: more & more on the New Long Sock with the new circular sock needle (actually a teensy bit bored with the rib pattern, but sshh!) + have got back to the Rainbow Granny Blanket now that more wool has been delivered. On to the purple now so hopefully not too long to go. The baby it’s for is due in less than two weeks. It won’t be ready for then. Fact. (note to self, must get postal address from Andrea in next couple of days as I’m guessing she won’t feel like sending it after the baby’s born!)
Watching: 1st 2 episodes of Jane Eyre, the one with Ruth Wilson & Toby Stephens. Not as good as I remembered it. Also, doesn’t watching the thing just make you want to read the book? & reading the book just makes you want to watch the thing?
Reading: Empire State still. Bit stuck with it as it’s long & I think I’ve hit the slow boring bit in the middle. Also, while the parentals are away I’m taking advantage of the fact I can sprawl on the sofa & crochet without having to
watch endure Strictly Come Downton or whatever.
Mood: ok I guess.
