It was a cold and rainy weekend. But it was also an extra hour in bed weekend; a dark Sunday teatime lit up by sparkling birthday candles weekend; a hurry into the car to go to Granny's and help celebrate her 83rd kind of weekend. Which made it a good one.
When we weren't baking a birthday cake or wrapping up that mantelpiece clock, found late on Saturday afternoon, or beating up another badge of fudge (special order), we were turning out all the wardrobes so that we could fill as many bags as we could to raise "cash for clobber". We bin-bagged up all our old clothes and then we went to Granny's and started on anything she had to donate.
I'm still reorganising what I have left; and because we were talking yesterday about needlework projects from the past, I've been going to the very back of the wardrobe and discovering treasure.
Yesterday Granny talked about her very first knitting project, her first crochet, and today I found two things she made for me when I was a student: a crochet cardigan and a thick Fair Isle sweater. Some things can be moved on, some things are for saving. I don't think I'll be moving these two on because,as my Grandma always used to say, "keep a good thing long enough and you'll be glad of it". Or something like that.
But this lot is going..
And that's Me On Monday. If you'd like to "Monday" too, give me a wave! I'd love to come and wish you a great week. Last week Helena, Deb, Jane, Ruth, Becky, Kirsty, Ladkyis, Karen, Fiona, Alison and Liz all gave us a peep into what they'd been up to and what their week might hold. Thank you!
