Well, time seems to be flying by, despite the fact that I seem to be spending a lot of it asleep. Or maybe because I’m spending a lot of it asleep . . . .
The knitting is going well. Have finished a door-stop monster for ED – I think he looks a little bit like a Smurf pretending to be a Viking, or maybe a Viking pretending to be a Smurf. Will let you all decide. ED has seen a photo, so no surprises being spoilt here.
Now on to knitting birthday presents and Xmas presents – can’t of course give too much away because I don’t know who exactly reads this blog, except of course for my lovely friend Rejane.
Tomorrow is Father’s Day and we have been invited to hubby’s YS for lunch in Malvern. It will be just wonderful to see them and two of the grandchildren. Lovely.
Have been watching lots and lots of football. It’s agony watching England play, and I can’t decide whether that’s because it’s “my” country’s team, or because they have a tendency to score one goal and metaphorically sit back and think “oh, that’s ok, we’re safe now”, whereas in fact they need (as proved by last night’s match against Sweden) they need to get at least another two goals to be anywhere near safe.
But when I’m watching other countries’ teams play I just enjoy the game. It must be because England is “my” team.
But by golly what goals they were. Danny Welbeck is just ace, and so is Theo Walcott. We have some wonderful players. Sweden’s Ibrahimovic is a very interesting character too. Very tall, but big with it, so he looks more in proportion than our gangly (but fab) Peter Crouch. I don’t think he’s quite as tall as Crouchy, but he certainly has presence.
Anyway, tonight we’re going to give footie a miss and watch some more of Series 1 of Spiral (Engrenages) which is riveting.
Some new yarn arrived today which I’d ordered. I’ve never been that keen on King Cole to be honest, but this is 4 ply “Zigzag” and it’s absolutely beautiful. Can’t wait to get started on it. Three balls, three different colours, three garments, all three patterns from Ravelry, very exciting. But will finish current project first. I can’t bear to have more than one project going at once, it’s a bit of a “thing” of mine.
Had a pedicure and manicure this week. Excellent. But tiring. How is that tiring? I really don’t know because the whole thing is a treat. Cup of tea provided, lovely little dog called Lucy making a big fuss of me and sitting on my lap, feel great afterwards.
Second blood test – when I went for my monthly appointment with the doctor I mentioned the huge amount of sleeping I was doing, and he suggested a blood test. So they took two vials of blood, and a letter came through saying I had to have more. So they took another two vials of blood, and a rather mysterious message came from the doctor saying that the B12 and folate was ok, but that the full blood count was to be “reviewed as normal”. I don’t normally have a full blood count, so what does that mean? anyway have another appointment in two weeks, so will ask then.
