I’ve kept meaning to write but time has passed me by. I’ve just had supper and I’m determined to write something before I relax for the evening. I love sitting down and doing this and I need to stop prevaricating!
One excuse is the length of the day (I know it’s still 24 hours, so it sounds a very poor excuse, a sort of ‘the dog ate my homework’ kind).
This is the sunset here in Cambridge at 3.30 this afternoon:
We’ve had some snow too, it’s good enough to stop the trains…. no excuse for my laziness though.
Ziggy loved it and the view from the window looked like a Christmas card and since it’s December that’s a good enough excuse to share:
It’s all gone now, it’s still very cold though. I had to drop the car at the garage when a warning light came on today, then walk home. I was definitely not dressed for the walk brrr. I really appreciated the cup of tea I had when I finally got home with numb fingers and toes.
It’s been a mulled wine/prosecco fueled week, no photo’s to share, my friends may not forgive me!
I’ve also finished the first part of my silversmithing course.
The final two pieces I made:
A first for me. I’ve never worn a ring on my index finger before, so I thought I would make one just to see how it felt and I like it. Although it makes me want to point!!
A couple of months ago I upcycled a red knitted waistcoat with a bit of crotchet and tassels, I mentioned it in one of my posts. It’s become a bit of a favourite. It’s very comfortable and fits perfectly:
It’s also red, which has been my go to colour this winter. Speaking of which, a friend gave me this gorgeous red felted wool bag as a gift the other day:
She said she saw it and thought of me!
She doesn’t blog and may never see this but I love it so much that I wanted to show it to say thank you. She clearly knows what I like.
And on that note, having finished this short post, I’m off to curl up on the sofa and see what’s on telly now.
Have a lovely week and a good Christmas.
