I have been doing ‘this and that’, not realizing I’ve not blogged in a while.
Benji and I are still together. So what have we been up to?
My crafts have kept me busy. This year many Poppies were needed to make a hanging. This involved other groups too. Can’t remember exactly where the hanging was but they needed thousands, each one to commemerat those persons who lost their lives in WW1 & WW2. I also made poppies and asked my local shop to sell them He was more than pleased to do so and we raised £50. This will be a project for me for 2018 Poppy day appeal.
For the ’HOMELESS’, local and in other places I have knitted hats and gloves, Scarves I do not like to knit as find this boring.
With Christmas coming up I’ve knitted baby things in red and white. At our Friday group our last day for posting was last week. Our month of December and we will knit what we like. Next year our project is to knit and crochet first born/preemie items for a local source.
I have already started and have 2 small hats,3 cardigans. I will knit booties too, The people want pale colours and NO pink or blue.
The garden has been put to bed and now we have been having very wet,dull days and the past few days dry with a frost. Ilove to walk with Benji on the crisp,chilly days and to feel the coldness on my face.
We’ve been on our usual walks and Benji now sits patiently in the car while I do a spot of shopping. Spotty never neede to be ‘trained’ in this field as she knew any way.
Benji visits the Vet tomorrow to have his ‘booster’ and have his ‘lumps. checked. They are getting bigger. Yet despite this he is still a very lively fella. He does spend more time on the settee than his bed.
Have started to do my Family History. Very interesting – to find out who my ancestors were and what they did with their lives. This is time consuming. Hence I will apoligise in advance that I may not blog as much in 2018.
Living in my new home and I’m feeling contented- as though I’ve been here years. So peacefull.
I am hoping to go on a holiday of a life time next year. Its with the church and am going to Lourdes in July. Am saving like mad.
The chap who did the electrics has mad a complete mess of things and has not given me the ‘certificate’ that is required when you re-wire a house. So am sorting that out.
That’s all for now. Your Friends Mary and Benji
