I have got a date




No, not that kind of date. I wish it was that kind of date but sadly Prince Charming is still nowhere to be found. I have got my hospital date for my knee op. March 24th so it will soon come around. I just hope that I can get rid of this blooming cough before then!

Rewselene (aka -laurie) said in my comments that she would like to see photos of the bedroom that I described yesterday. Sadly most of it is now dismantled. I am sure that I have a photo somewhere showing everything in situ, including my late cat if I remember rightly, but I can't quite put my hands on it at the moment. That is not a surprising thing in my house as filing things away neatly is not one of my virtues. Discovering things in drawers and cupboards months later is part of my life these days. It adds a bit of excitement to my hum drum life! I have taken one photo of a bit of wallpaper and some of the gold leaves and one of the pile of brass bits and bobs that used to reside in my bedroom and is now waiting to be taken to the charity shop.

My pink duster has progressed a little although I am undecided whether it is a bit on the large side. I think I will try tapering it in towards the waist by either going on a smaller hook or omitting one of the chain between the shell patterns. I like things roomy but as this is a long length coat I don't want it to turn out too loose and baggy. I may decided to unravel and re-do it all on a smaller hook. I am not a lover of things too openwork despite it being the fashion these days.

Thank you thank you :) I LOVE it. I actually bought that same mounted map for my son for his 21st. He was crazy about it! (i love maps myself) His has a navy blue background.
I'm going to show this to my guy and see what he thinks :) Thanks again!

Surgery day is not too far away then. With luck that cough will be history. :-)

Hi! I'm fairly new to blogging, but I just wanted to say how much I enjoy reading your posts and seeing your crochet projects. Hope you are rid of that cough soon, and prayers are on the way for a speedy recovery after your surgery.
