Another day older.......

I do, I admit, feel that I am ageing rapidly at the moment.

Aaargh! Particularly as I am in grumpy old woman mode as Blogger has forced me to change to the new style and Everything Is Different. Oh, no doubt I will get used to it and grow to like it - either (oops, another difference, you have to switch italics off now, what the fuck the button is telling me I am IN italic mode when demonstrably I ain't) that or move on over to Typepad where I have set up an account ready and waiting but although I can take my Blogger text archives with me I can't move photos, so I am reluctant to do that and just how long can I make this sentence last anyway - eh??

That is not how I had intended to write this post. Let's start again.

I have finished a pair of socks, the "knitting by the bedside" pair. I am so pleased to have an FO, even a small and routine one (I never ever did think that I would call knitting socks "routine", but there you go, we are all capable of change!) Ta da.

The bedside socks

However....the knitted boa is still a tangled mess, but less so than it was, as the DSM has been putting in sterling service in the untangling department. I am slightly anxious about the amount of stress it may be causing him, but he tells me not to concern myself........

Also, I started the Knitty "Mrs Beeton" wristwarmers yesterday, but even after doing a swatch, when I had completed a few actual rounds I found it too dense a fabric coming up, so that got ripped as well. I'll have another go tonight at Coven.

For which I have made a lemonish sort of cake. Possibly marginally overcooked, but I am hoping that the generous quantities of lemon curd and lemon buttercream will compensate for that.

We still have a hole in the kitchen ceiling. Someone came and stared up into it this lunchtime, then went on up into the bathroom and started doing some very meaningful sounding tapping. I am hopeful that we may get this sorted out fairly soon. I am being very sanguine about it.

Really, I am.

Just ageing rapidly.........

(Oh, PS: the DSM continueth to maketh decent progress. We both get to go to the hospital tomorrow for a sort of open session run as an introduction to various services provided by the Coronary Rehab Unit. Sounds like jolly fun. But it has to be done.)

Aren't all of your pictures on Flickr? I'm pretty sure you can use it on TypePad too. Of course you'll probably have to do some linking.
