Outside My Window ... snowing, windy, grey but fortunately snow is not settling.
I am thankful ... that our son is not going to Afghanistan with the naval reserve. There are enough naval personnel from the decommissioned vessels to go instead of reserves. Good for a couple who have been married barely 6 months.
From the kitchen ... Ian has just gone downstairs to make a quick lunch before he goes to U3A art.
I am wearing ... M & S long grey warm skirt, Uniqlo blue polo neck jumper and matching cardigan. I bought this skirt over three years ago for I thought it would be warm to wear to work. At that time I was working as a cataloguer behind the scenes at a London public library. I left before the winter, suddenly decided I'd had enough of the bullying manager. Never regretted going.
I am going... nowhere today. Healthwise I will stay indoors.
I am reading ... Diary of a nobody. Picked it up from reading group yesterday.
I am hoping ... that Martha's training for the London Marathon will go well and she receives much sponsorship for pancreatic cancer in memory of 27 year old Gemma. Martha's just giving website is http://www.justgiving.com/martharunsthemarathon2011 . I will be reminding you of this until 17th April and beyond.
Around the house ... house creaking, always does this with central heating.
I am creating ... last 10 cms of the neck of my polo neck jumper. Have been taught the magic loop system for using circular needles.
Yesterday went along road to see Mel and was shown that I was knitting my socks inside out, using the needles the wrong way. Have been advised to buy Knit pro sock circular needles. Needed 2.5 size and phoned Ian who just happened to be in Kingston but John Lewis didn't have that size. Everything either side. Will try Mrs Moon our local yarn shop where I go to knit, chat and receive advice every other Thursday.
A Picture Thought I Am Sharing ...
Time for lunch, so byeee, don't forget to look at Martha's website.
