In fact after I've posted this I may just go up and do some scrapping. I also managed to get a shelving unit, shame B&Q didn't drill all of the "pre-drilled" holes in it though so I need Royston's help to put it together! Hopefully at some point this week my scrap room will look a little more like it should and not a shit heap!
I'm going to ring my Nanna now she's had 2 lots of bad news in the last couple of weeks so I must check how she is!
Right off to scrap - honestly I am!

Except that I’ve started the bag again (I know, I’m not meant to just knit something first time) because when I left the gap for the handle I didn’t like it! I need to have a closer inspection of the book in borders where I got the original idea from! I’m now going to make it pretty much the same but make a strip to go round the bottom, sides and make the handle.
Not much else going on really, Saturday was spent working on the car and then Royston managed to mount the curb bit in front of the petrol pump and punctured the tyre – of course no spare. So while he went and got the spare I walked Rosco Dog down by the river. Then back home briefly and then back out for another 2 hours walking Rosco Dog with Royston and our friend and his 2 terriers. I sat down on Saturday properly at 10pm! Sunday was quieter I dropped off my
Anywhooo, I’m going to try and ring Borders to see if they are still stocking CK, I neeeed a copy now – I haven’t had one since the March issue and I was lucky to find that in there!
Love and jelly tots.

Combined with feeling grotty all week and not really having much to post about I've been a little slack
Have made a start on a handbag in my lovely Colinette Wigwam – making the pattern up as I go along so should be fun, I hope I have enough yarn.
Tonight I am hoping to get upstairs and have a small tidy, and do some ATCs for a swap I’m in – I opted for just 6 in an effort to be sensible! I also have wool to untangle, my Mum gave me some lovely wool when I went home to knit for a throw. I did make a start but the wool is tangling as I knit, last night I sat down to ball them all up and ended up with one big infuriating knot.
In other news I think I’ve upset someone but I can’t be sure and I have no idea how. It’s not someone I know IRL so this of course makes it even harder for me to work out. Because I am a slightly sensitive soul I am now worried that I have done or said something to cause offence to her and maybe others. I’m kinda thinking that I should assume I have and slink off quietly. I just wish I knew if I had – If I have upset you please let me know, I can’t do anything if I don’t know about it.
Well back from Lunch now – head hurts immensely. Better get on with my stationery order so someone else can order something 2 seconds after I finish it!
Edited to make sense!

I didn't manage to do any Scrapbooking last night at all - in fact I don't really know what happened to last night it seemed to disappear before my eyes! Took the dog down the beach for a quick run around as he loves the sea - now have sand and dog hair all over the house.
I hope it brightens up at lunch time so I can go sit outside and knit, there isn't enough room usually for me in the canteen at the time I go so it means I tend to spend most of my lunch wondering what I can do. Must remember to get more Sticky notes out of the stationary cabinet though as I am out of them!
Just come back from a Reception meeting, we have to do our KPI's for Monday and work on the new Reception should start on Thursday - YAY!
OK so this was yesterday's post, I woke up in the middle of the night realising that I hadn't emailed this off yesterday!
Have finished the rib again for the glove which is the longest part! Should be finished tonight, I was going to Stitch and Bitch this evening but more car problems mean I can't! Oh well, at least I'll see the apprentice now.
Catch you later peeps!

I've done 16 rows of Rib on the glove - kinda losing the will to knit with them; I can't face doing it again! Mind you I still have to redo the Angora ones I originally knitted, but again reducing the amount of rib at the bottom - I think my chunky arms may have contributed to the wool snapping on the last ones. And the matching hat to do too. I also have the wool to knit a beret, my colinette for a scarf, which if I do knit the one I want I'm pretty sure that I will need more yarn for, I also need to make adjustments for it - to try and conserve yarn.
My lovely friend returned to work today from her hols with a nice big Tigger mug for me - I feel very spoiled when I drink out of it! I am planning something nice to make her as a little thank you!
