I haven’t written a post for a couple of weeks, been busy doing this, that and the other. Thought I’d better say Hi, I’m still here!
Things here in the UK have been like our weather, we just don’t know whats going to happen next! So, we are leaving the EU, our Prime Minister is resigning, we will have a new leader (the choice so far is not looking good), The Labour party seems to be falling apart and Iceland beat England in football (well done Iceland btw :)).
Its a rather negative place to be at the moment. There has been a surge in racist hate crimes since the referendum, which unfortunately comes as no suprise. Some people are so full of hate and anger and to them, the vote to leave has given them the ok to spout their racist nonsense. Humans can be vile creatures.
…and that was the News, now back to my usual yarns…
There will be a new Knit and Knatter group here in North Tawton at the Lakeway Church, starting tonight 7-9 and then hopefully every Weds eve. There will be tea and cake to help with the nattering! I’m not usually the type to go to these groups but it is literally round the corner and I have to give it a go at least once! I think I will take a new project with me, hmmmm, will have to have a think. I have a big fair coming up and need some wow on my stall
Its will be a welcome distraction from the chaos that is occurring at home. We will be having a new kitchen next month and am trying to prepare by packing stuff away so we can use the dining room as a temporary cafe. I am amazed by the amount of things we have accumulated. It is an ideal opportunity to have a sort out and now we have a spare room full of stuff to take to a car boot sale, that is when the weather dries up!
We did ponder quite a lot about having a new kitchen, its all so expensive and the existing one kinda works ok. We decided to go ahead as the cooker is basically rubbish and because it is integral we need to rip out the worktops/units, so really best to do the whole lot!! Trouble is , it will make the rest of the house look scruffy so looks like we will be decorating for the next six months!
Right, time to go out and do stuff, have a lovely day x
