A nice cup of tea

Up to a year ago I wanted to do baking,crochet and knitting but didn't have the money to go and buy ingredients or a really nice yarn but I had the time to do it all. However, now I have the money to buy ingredients of all kinds and some nice yarn I don't have the time. Flipping typical isn't it! My mind is running away with ideas of projects I want to do and baking that I would like to try but I just haven't got the time. Trying to fit in work, housework, feeding the partner and jogging, I barely get an hour at night to do my crafts. However, I am getting spoiled lately, Frank bought me some Rowan Fine Lace and I a gorgeous lace book so I reckon I can get at least two big projects out of the 10 balls of lace yarn.
Anyway, I am writing this today because I have had to book the day off to take Tammie for her CT scan and when we got there, they apologised saying that the mobile unit was not visiting there today. I was flipping angry because they didn't communicate properly and I even rang them yesterday to check that the appointment was still ok and was told yes. They apologised and said they would do a bile test on Tammie to see if its still high and if its not high, she might not have to have the CT scan anyway, so am sitting here waiting for 3pm to go and get her and the results! It's horrible coming home and Tammie not greeting me, I can't wait for 3pm. We popped into Romford after dropping her off at the vets and I went to Hobbycraft to get my crochet hooks and then we had a stroll around the charity shops. I got a Debbie Abraham's book called Blankets and Throws to Knit at £5 which was a bargain because I was only looking at her patterns this morning on ravelry.com.
We went into TK Max and got a lovely pair of cups that caught my eye. They were £4.99 each but well worth it. We also got a chicken doorstop for the back door which is really cute. Oh well, that's it for now. Am going to drink my tea out of my new cup and watch the clock for time to leave....
