No lie-in allowed this morning! Last night’s weather forecast promised us we’d lose the sunshine in the afternoon and the beach was calling. We were there by nine o’clock, bright sun, an incoming tide and a stiffish breeze. Very bracing. Only two other cars in the lane ( the beauty of our favourite beach is that there is no car park, no tearoom!) so once we came over the top of the dune the beach was nearly deserted. Higgins is now reliable enough to run off the lead, although he really misses having someone young enough to run with him.
Considering his reluctance to set foot outside when it’s raining and puddly he’s quite intrepid when it comes to the interesting pools forming as the tide raced in…
He hasn’t quite found a deep enough bit to actually have to swim yet so I hope I have the camera to hand when he does.
While Higgins sleeps off all that exercise I’m sorting out my leftover yarn.
I have a bit of an obsessive thing about winding wool. I have a lovely gadget for doing the big balls, but these little bits get wound very carefully by hand so they look pretty. (Yes, OK! I know it’s weird but it makes me happy…)
And it’s something to do while I decide what I else I can make.
I’ve lost my diary. It’s slim, anonymous, dark blue. Perfect for slipping in between books and magazines and losing forever. Well at least long enough to be madly inconvenient. So I decided to get something more substantial, an academic one so I can start it now.
But it’s not really me, is it? But, with a little application of brightly coloured yarn it can be made much harder to lose…
Although Tim has pointed out that I’m going to lose it as soon as I put it down on the blanket….
I’m also suffering from rapidly cooling coffee, but not any more…
… there are STILL bits of wool left, but I have a plan! Bunting! Well, everyone loves bunting. In fact, it would be quite nice to think of a new slant on bunting….
I’m very happy with the pompoms…and I still love all those colours. I also have lots of cushions just waiting for covers…and a new sofa which needs cushions.
Which is why I went back to the market on Friday…
…for fresh supplies!
