My mouth was watering because I had been starving myself before getting weighed at Weight Watchers and It occurred to me that I might be able to spit 1lb of weight out before I was weighed. I put a glass on the scales and spat into it. Unfortunately after 23 spits the scales had not registered any change and then switched off. It wasn't until Thursday night that Gayna (cuckoob) showed me what 1lb of liquid looked like that I realised it was never going to work.
This is my pyjama case, it is knitted in Big Wool and only took me a day to knit. It is available on my website to buy as a download pattern or as a kit. Ok, that's the sales pitch over with. This morning I witnessed the bullying of a heron. I have binoculars on my kitchen table to indulge in my new hobby, taken up after turning 40, birdwatching. Today I was extremly excited to see a heron land in the top of a tree, I took out my binoculars to admire him. He had only been sat at the top of the tree for less than a minute when he was under attack from two magpies and a gang of aggressive seagulls. They kept diving at him. He only moved to duck when they swooped on him. I called the RSPB and left a message, asking for advice as what to do. Feeling helpless, I imagined how I could help him, a gun would frighten him as well as the other birds, could I climb the tree? could I coax him down with some muesli, or a milky way to bring him inside and protect him?
He eventually flew away when a magpie crept up on him and pushed him off his branch. He was followed by an angry mob of seagulls. 'it is nature' I kept telling myself, but surely it is nature that me, a human being witnessing this would want to get involved. I felt better when the RSPB returned my call and said that had a fight broken out the heron would have won. Thank you RSPB, I will be making a donation for your prompt service.
I have been crocheting, I am on my fourth granny square blanket. I have done one for Little Ettie, one for Auntie Elsie and one for Claire Turnbull, the next one is going to be for me. It is very addictive. I finished my third one at Meadowgate 4. A post of all of its own is required for Meadowgate 4.
Does anyone else hate 'Question of Sport'? I almost find it embarassing to watch. Not funny! My windscreen exploded on the way back from Unravel. Something hit me when I overtook a car in the middle lane. I heard this almighty bang, it reminded me of when a member of a biker gang shot another biker from another gang, not from the back of a sexy Harley Davidson bike, I think he was in a Vauxhall Cavalier at the time- naff. Anyway, I digress, an hour later the window exploded, it frightened the life out of me. I was in the middle lane doing 70mph. I thought the sunroof had gone. I was showered with glass. I was unhurt just in shock.
Unravel was great. I was on my own and it was sooooooooo busy. My good friend Jeanette Sloans' husband made me lunch everyday and brought me cups of coffee, he was A MAZE ING. I stayed with Claire and Stuart in Horsham, like I do each year. They look after me so well. I love spending time with them.
