Back to work!

Ok, so it had to happen. The two weeks annual leave had to end and went back to work today. Woke up at 7am and it was chilly, dull and miserable (normal monday morning then). The autumn season is sooner here than I thought because all the leaves on the few trees down our road have suddenly turned golden. They look so gorgeous on the tree.

Had quite a busy day and I did liven up once I got into work! Mind you, my mind was on my little dog Tammie cause I have really missed her today. She had been following me around like a shadow the 2 weeks I was off and today I kept looking around for her. I did come home to a wonderful greeting from her tonight when I got in from work. She is certainly my best friend.

I didnt feel like going to craft club tonight, they were having a demo on card making and I have done that for a few years now. (Gave away all my card making equipment a few weeks ago). So instead I stayed home. Had dinner, walked Tammie, got washed and changed by 7.30pm and sat in the corner of my 'corner suite' and crocheted for hours. (Watched NCIS).

I have been contemplating knitting a shawl for a christmas gift but have got to find the exact pattern so that if I go wrong with it, it will 'frog' easily. Looks like I will be spending a lot of time on ravelry to find one!!!

The English Weather

As soon as the school summer holidays are over, the weather changes to Autumn. I'm not bothered completely, I just know that in about a months time the mornings and evenings are going to be dark and thats what I hate. I love Autumn and the colours of that season.

I have been on annual leave from work for nearly 2 weeks now and I cant say I have loved it. The recession has hit us very hard and every time I watch the news on the television, it really gets on my nerves. But, I am not going to involve politics on here, it bores me to tears.

What have I made in my two weeks off. A pair of fingerless gloves, a pair of leg warmers, a fair isle tote bag that went wrong when I tried to felt it, and a beaded head band for my cousin. Not bad really because its even done my diet good too (have not thought about food much). Oh, and a lacy curtain for my bathroom.

I have been watching a lot of youtube videos about knitting and crochet and I find that I watch more on the computer than I do watching tv programmes. TV is so boring. Tell a lie, I tell ya what I did watch the day before yesterday, a programme about the trains in New York and the tunnels. I couldnt believe that it runs 24/7. Why cant they do that over here in the UK!

Am off to take my best friend out for a walk before it starts to get chilly. See ya.
