After several lots of ripping out the stitches, I have something that at least resembles crochet. The book is 'The House at Riverton'
So, a month ago, I wrote about having a lovely relaxed time on my week off, and then times sped and work got busy, I got ill and better again, work got even busier, and suddenly it was this week,
|American M&Ms, Thanks D!|
|A small bit of joy in the ENDLESS public transport.|
|Boots at work. Oh the glamour!|
|There has been a lot of this going on.|
|The book is 'The Little Women Diaries'. I think they'd approve of my chosen snack!|
|Bulk cooking at work, Of course, I had one of these as a cook's perk!|
|The beginning of crochet...|
This week I have spent 17 hours and travelled roughly 650 miles on public transport. I got my winter coat back out, because the weather was awful. I have gone to the park on the two warm days with the kids. I have cooked nothing at home, while cooking a lot at work. I have begun to teach myself to crochet. I have had a whole day with some very lovely girls, eating D's delicious baked goods - including the best focaccia I've ever eaten. I've been to Whole Foods for the first time, and got cashew butter from the machines. I have read many books! I voted in the local elections and got angry at the low turn out, but was happy to see the candidate I wanted to win take a seat. After the day with the girls, I met Dave in ton for a few drinks for a friends's birthday, and we baorded my 15th (and last) bus of the week, the last bus back to Dundee. We arrived home to a rainy Dundee just after 1am.
Today- after a week of constant movement - I have napped, read, tried to catch up on blogs and Pinterest, listened to Johnny Cash and The Beautiful South (I know, I am SO cool). I had the foresight to build cleaning, washing and tidying into the mornings and the hour of evening I have after work this week - less sleep in the mornings, but I haven't had to do anything much today. And we had lasagne from Lidl for tea. I'm going to spend the last few hours of the day getting ready for the next busy week, and having some quiet time.
