Once again my bleep bleep computer has been giving me problems and there is only so much advice my son, 10,000 miles away, can give me! Main problem is that when I am trying to visit other blogs "Internet Explorer" decides to keep on opening other windows, very quickly, so that I suddenly have about 20 + open all at once!! So I just have to turn the computer off and begin again. Very irritating. I run the spyware thingy and hope for the best but it has put me off using it very much lately. At the moment all is OK! I shall have to get it looked at though.
So instead of blogging I have been trying to be more creative. I made our 5 year old grand-daughter's birthday cake (an alien space craft - her choice) and OH and I went up to Stratford on Avon on THE DAY and delivered it. I have another birthday cake to do next week and a couple at the end of the month. In the meantime I started to knit a blanket to use up some of the stock of wool that I have accumulated over the years. It is mostly in blues and white and cream but I thought I would add colourful motives to some of the squares, the first being an ice-cream and I'm quite pleased with the result! We live in a sea-side town so I decided on holiday/leisure theme.
I have a long way to go to finish and I have a feeling I may be sidetracked into making something for youngest grandson as I have already begun looking through my patterns. Have also thought that maybe I could knit my daughter an Aran sweater. We'll see.
OH has been working away quite a bit lately and this week is away playing golf! So, although we were disappointed about not selling our house recently, I have decided that I must make a real effort to sort through all cupboards and drawers and discard where necessary and that has kept me busy too. One of these days our house will sell, so it is a job that has to be dealt with and sooner rather than later!
I have missed being able to blog on a regular basis and do hope to catch up a bit now. One of my first tasks is to get over to Anne at Retired and Crazy who very kindly cooked me a chicken when I was a bit fed up over the loss of our house sale - I have thanked her but not collected it yet. I wonder if it is still OK?
