Well I didn't intentionally start out to write a blog post for every day in October, but I did and feel quite pleased with myself as it has given me some focus, even if the subject matter isn't always especially stimulating or interesting.
I'm not sure what November will bring, but I know it is going to be a really busy month for us for many reasons. Hopefully I will be able to share more of that soon. Part of that will be having our son home so we will hopefully see quite a bit of him too.
Today I started work on trying to sort out stuff in our utility/conservatory, sewing room, come lets stuff everything in it room! I have sorted out quite a bit and now have packed relatively neatly three boxes, one with painting/art books, one with patterns and the other with scrapbook supplies. Some rubbish and cardboard recycling was also sorted.
I have faffed around a bit with some other things, and folded some washing...oh the excitement! But it is a job done so that is good.
On Friday last week when my friend came down for the day she brought with her a doll I carved back in 2014 and returned her to me. I was delighted to have this doll back as out of the nine I had carved, I had only kept my first 'Hitty Madge'. This was number six, she is a little chunky, but she is making me happy and I have made her a little reversible apron, and last night knitted her a shawl. Her name is Morag.
This is the back and yes she does have blue and red striped stockings!
I took the dogs on a slightly different route this morning for their walk and was surprised to see how little mileage my phone recorded I had done, so I mapped out the route on Google Maps and it was a lot more. Clearly my phone underestimates how much I am actually walking, which is quite good as it means I'm doing more than I thought I was. Always an added bonus.
I succumbed to some Corn bread today for lunch so will be interesting to see if I have any ill effects. I hope not as I really enjoyed it, but have to be restrained as I'd love to have some more slices!
It is almost 3.30 pm and the sun is going down already. The days really are drawing in. Time to feed the guinea pigs and close up their shed for the day.
