...and with our holidays over we're back into our usual routine here. Mmm..maybe not quite. As soon as the A Level results are announced, the planning begins: only a few weeks until our girl starts her new life; and so we spent part of the weekend thinking about where she might live.
I'd been a bit hesitant to suggest one of my places: who wants their Mum as their landlord? That's like having your Mum as your ..mum, but with added bills and possibly less hot water (memo: get the boiler serviced); but there's a good chance it'll work out (memo: suggest she takes some of her baking paraphernalia to fill all those cupboards, then I'll get my kitchen back and she can still be here with fresh brownie deliveries in about ten minutes). We'll see how much cleaning and painting goes on this week and take it from there.

while I worked hard at not interfering, I kept busy finishing up the purple sweater I started at the end of June. It's the first bottom up, in-the-round one I've made; but I can see myself getting seriously obsessed with this technique. I've cast on another one already. I just need to backtrack a little and (very) swiftly decide on a plan for August's Sock Of the Month before I get going in earnest. This will be the winter of the yoke sweater.

So, what did I do that was new this weekend? Apart from signing up a new tenant, not a lot. We did talk a lot about all the new things we had been doing the Sunday before..
...when I learned that driving an East German Trabant car (simulator only, folks, have no fear, I'm not on the road) is very hard work.
How about you? Anything new? Maybe you'd like to make a memo and share. We'd love some new Mondayers!
Deb, Helena, Eileen, Maggie, Fiona, Krafty Karen, Melissa, Mitra, Ladkyis and Barbara took some notes last week when I was away, and the week before. Give 'em a wave! And have a good week.
