Ah, Monday! I'll be quite happy to see you over and done with! It'll have to be a quick post from me today because my broken root and I have a date with Darren The Dentist. Me? I'm from the if it ain't broke, don't fix it school of tooth management; but as Darren The Dentist looked me straight in the eye and told me this one was most definitely broken, I suppose I'd better turn up this morning, as directed.
So that gives me just about enough time to make a Monday memorandum about something new I did at the weekend.
I distracted myself from thoughts of extraction with some sock knitting (of course) for February's Sock of the Month: a new pattern knitted in by me and not created in front of my very eyes by the clever self striping yarn. But my newest new thing is the set of gelatos which arrived here on Friday. This is quite big for me. I never buy artist-y stuff. I have no watercolours, or watercolour paper, or gel medium, or acrylics; instead I have a couple of craft paints and a handful of brushes left over from our potato printing days here. I regularly scored a C in Art at school and I gave it up after two years to do German instead. But I've become more and more drawn to thoughts of painterly backgrounds for my pages and I want to experiment. It feels like fun this time round.
And I have just enough time to draw a winner for the Love Your Selfie Giveaway. That would be Ali Ali, I think I might have your address; but if you could drop me a line with it just to double check that would be great.
And enough time to give a special wave to everyone who posted a Monday Memorandum last week. Becky, Deb, Ruth, Rinda, Eileen, Jane, Miriam, Mitra, Gail, Mary-Lou, Karen, Susanne, Fiona, Maggie, Louise H, KraftyKaren, Alison, Helena, Karen and Ladkyis
Anything new you did at the weekend? Something you know now which you didn't know before? Make a note! Then you can post it on Memorandum Monday.
And, oh look: I've just left myself enough time to put a nice soft, very soft, no chewing at all, sausage and cannellini bean casserole in the slow cooker. That's something to look forward to. Have a good week!
