Brace yourself for more floods and wet weather says the weather forecast in England.
So while there has been the odd hour of mild weather and no rain I have been cutting back dead branches in the garden that didn't get chance to be cut back earlier.
I got a bit enthusiastic with my pruning shears so cut my middle left finger instead of the twigs which has left me out of quilting action for a bit longer grrrrr. I have a thick plaster and bandaging so I guess I have to be patient and wait for that to heal before I'm able to quilt and knit again.
i managed to pot three poppy plants that needed the roots soaking and replanting, my partner Jim helped too, replanting them then bringing them indoors to protect from the frost. I invested in a pair of bizarre brightly coloured wellingtons with the design of bun toppings, a hundred thousand topping bits I think they are called. I love the boots though I got odd glances from other people that's what quilters are for isn't it? to be different and unique.
They keep my feet dry as lately there are a lot of puddles and mud everywhere.
The snow may just come and surprise us yet.
I thought of a new name for Jim's second hand motor. With the car being a long lanky estate skoda, I nicknamed the car Scoobie Doo. Scoobie Doo has been sick not able to digest the petrol properly so Scoobie went to the garage for a few days, and thank goodness he's now better and able to come home. I've missed that car though I don't drive, lugging bags of shopping from one trolley to another ands lots of carrying and walking. Thank you God for Scoobie.
I also love brightly coloured parrots, I have uploaded a photo that Raj has taken when she went to a bird centre a few months ago... aren't they sweet?
I hope everyone else is having fun and not working too hard
