C came home on Monday but now has to wait for an operation.He is classed as "urgent" but as three out of the four urologists are on holiday it will probably be six weeks. so bang goes our French holiday in September.He is very upbeat about it all and has been to his Philosophy group this afternoonIt is totally beyond me but he loves it.
Sarah had her diabetic appointment this afternoon and has been reassured she will live beyond 50(remember last time's fiasco)!
I have bought the latest Posh Yarn shawl kit but am completely daunted by it.I can't even cast it on!I will not be beaten I promise you!I also need to get some socks cast on.I like to have some socks on the go but fancy a different pattern(a job for this evening).
I have now done and crocheted together 150 squares from Jane Brocket's latest book using all left over wool and it looks great.
I just thought I would mention what our son and his family are doing for their holiday in case any of you fancied the idea.They have exchanged their house in Cambridge for two weeks with a couple who work in Barcelona but have a holiday flat with a pool by the beach which is where they are..It is within walking distance of a supermarket so they havn't had to hire a car.I had a text from him this morning saying they had taken the local bus intoTarragona.When you have three children package holidays are just too expensive.They booked cheap air tickets into Barcelona and that is there only cost.Last year they did the same in northern France.
