Hello from the sewing room......
It has been another grey day here. Mizzle, says Jean - a mixture of mist and drizzle all day so the hair is now corkscrewing sideways from my scalp in a truly fetching manner. I was minding my own business here, when the MSN live chat started up and I nearly failed to recognise myself.
Mother, Jean and I were in town early this morning to get wool, and other vital essentials. Jean is masterminding the Alpha course cooking, so had to stock up on fresh bread as well, and then she and I headed off to aquazumba. Today we worked hard. Very hard. I ache. But that is good because the class tomorrow is cancelled. The pool is still leaking. As we said today, we have no idea why they don't just close the pool for a week and get it sorted once and for all. At least it was warmer today. Apparently they used hot water from the showers to fill it this morning. Hah. It was balmy. Positively tropical.
Home made vegetable soup was the meal of the day - we now have a cauldron of the stuff, and it is delicious on a chilly evening, I have to say. David is cooking tomorrow too, so I can relax for a few days. And now I HAVE to go and finish that quilt. It is making me feel guilty. Another couple of weeks and the winter colour change will be upon us, and I have to have it done before then.
Day 8: I am thankful for laughter. For for the way we can turn ordinary things into fun times, if we smile, and laugh out loud. I wish you could see us at aqua - you would laugh till you cried. We all get A* for enthusiasm. The style is not so good, but the laughter is wonderful.
