I have mentioned before that I want to do a video to share with you and yesterday I finally thought that I had cracked it. I managed to record a video that I didn't hate, that had at least somewhat reasonable content and my plan was to share that with you today for Five On Friday.
Of course the plans went better than the actuality and after hours and hours of trying to upload the video the internet was still not cooperating. Next week I will be upgrading the internet to Superfast Broadband to see if that helps.... I am the least techy person that you will ever come across, but even I am frustrated by it now.
That is all a very long and shambolic explanation of my also shambolic post today as I don't really have five things to share. I have put together some random moments from my week and hope that you will forgive me and we can all blame technology for this post....
I have another - yes, another - cold!! What is with these darned colds.... Apparently working alone doesn't expose you to enough germs to keep your immune system up to scratch. Grrr!
I bought some yarn and what was delivered was what I ordered, but not what I wanted. Then I ordered some more and what I got is lovely, but the other yarn I ordered is again what I ordered but yes, you guessed it, not what I wanted. See, I am a tech failure!! Must pay better attention to online ordering. Fortunately I can use what I have, just in a different way.
The Easter Bunnies are still in residence in the living room. I am counting them as spring rabbits. Do you think that could really be a thing?
Some of you are kind enough to enquire about Man occasionally, so I wanted to update you. He is so so. No change for the better, not that we expected one. He has had two falls recently, in one he ended up with a lump on his head the size of an egg, I didn't realise that that could actually happen, but it does. Trust me. In the second he fell through a glass door and was totally unscathed but the door of course wasn't. The door has now been removed and now we need to work on getting him to let us remove the rugs which are what caused him to have this latest fall. So, the update is that there is no real change, but that he is as OK as he is going to be right now. In the meantime we continue to cope as best as we can.
I have started my new tapestry after finishing the previous one, but haven't got very far at all yet. It will come! I have been distracted by all the crocheting things that I cannot tell you about right now. Oh, except one thing, my colleague loved the basket which I was so happy about. I am making some more for the shop and I hope that those of you who have been kind enough to buy the pattern for them enjoy making your own. Thank you so much for your purchases, I really do appreciate it, but more than that I really hope you enjoy making your baskets. Let me know if you need any help.
Also on the crochet note, some of you might remember the special edition packs of the 10 Stylecraft colours that came out earlier this year or late last year. Well I ordered, ahem, some... I have had them sitting since then waiting for attention. Finally I have a project for them! I don't think that I am cut out to be one of these people who have a stash of yarn. Far too stressful for me!!!
Although, see Two above...
Yarn has been too much on my mind this week.
Oh, which also reminds me, there is a Coupon Code for 25% off in my Etsy shop until the end of April 2016. The code is AprilSale2016 if you wish to use it.
I will stop writing this gabble now and go and watch some Real Housewives shouting at each other. Just what I need after spending three hours in a meeting this evening. More people shouting at each other. (I write this on a Thursday evening and schedule the post for Friday morning, sorry, I don't get up pre 6am to write this!). Just keeping it real folks!! Either that or the cold meds are getting to me.
I hope that you have had a good week and that you are planning a fun weekend. We have a lunch out planned - that might turn into brunch instead - other than that I am not sure what else we will do. A visit to Man to see what the situation is re taking the rugs up and perhaps some gardening if the weather is kind to us.
Whatever you do I hope you enjoy it! Take care of yourselves my friends and thank you all for being brilliant! Just wanted you to know that.
Thank you - as always! - for joining in and for going to read others posts.
