The sun is shining again today but we still have that dratted wind. great for drying the towels on the line but not great for sitting out in the sunshine. I love to sit out and relax with my knitting or crochet in the garden. I have a sunshade umbrella that fits in the centre of the patio table so I can sunbathe without getting burnt. I still manage to get a bit of a tan in the summer despite not actually sitting out in the glare of the sun.
I have a lodger cat asleep on the bed. This time it is Oscar the black and white cat from next door. He came in early this morning, looking knackered after a night on the tiles, and is now in a deep sleep. He likes my house because it is quiet and no -one disturbs him. Next door has 2 teenagers and a 12 yrs old and so it can be a bit noisy at times so he can't get his proper relaxing sleep.
I have picked up my niece's knitted jacket again and finished off the front and started the last front. After that I have quite wide bands to knit so it will be a while yet before that is finished and stitched up.
My steam mop hasn't arrived yet so I have an excuse for not doing any cleaning in the kitchen today. It will probably arrive tomorrow and then I will have no excuse for not doing the mopping.
