I hope you all had a good weekend. I had a couple of nice surprises for mine.
First one was when I got home from visiting my mum on Saturday, Mr. S had started tiling the kitchen. We were supposed to have someone come and do it for us but what with one thing and another, he was unable to.
So Mr. S decided to do it himself and when I got home he'd already got over half of it done. I was really pleased with how it was looking. We'd had the ceiling replastered, all the new cupboards have been fitted, with my new dishwasher, that works like a dream. I love my dishwasher and have always wanted one, but never had the room in the kitchen. So when we was ripping out the old and putting in the new, that was the main thing I wanted.
The walls had been painted, so all that was left was tiling and flooring.
Now the tiling has been completed and I would just like to say a huge "Thank you" as I know he has been ultra busy with work. So completeting that for me was wonderful.
The second surprise of my weekend was yarn finding.
My youngest daughter Amie wanted to go to Blue Water on Sunday. Now some people find this quite odd, but I'm not a lover of shopping. Wandering in and out of shops browsing, does not appeal to me, and if the shop has a sale on and there are rails all over and the shop is all higgeldy piggeldy, then I just have to walk back out. But she only wanted to go to a couple of shops, so that and lunch sounded good.
A friend of Amies at work, told her that John Lewis had a small craft section so after lunch we went to have a look.
I know I'm a newbie to the whole crocheting and yarn buying, so many of you ladies probably already know what I'm about to share.
Years ago when my children were babies and toddlers, we had a fair few wool shops in our area, but slowly, maybe because of the recession back then, they slowly closed down one by one. So when I started to crochet again, there hasn't been a huge choice of yarns or many yarn shops locally to me. There is a huge amount of choice online, but I do like to feel, squeeze and view yarn, before buying.
So when I went into John Lewis, can you imagine how I felt when I saw this.
I have found yarn heaven. It was so lovely just to stand and coo, poke, feel, squeeeeeeeeezzzzze and admire.
Did I want to buy some? Hell yeah. I could of filled baskets with it all, but I gave myself a good talking to. I don't need anymore more yarn at the moment, I have 5/6 WIP going at the moment, with plenty of surplus yarn to start more.
So I took some pics and walked away.
"Phew that was a close one, thought we was going to need help getting to the car with all the bags of yarn." Said Amie
"No I don't need any more yarn today, maybe I'll pop back later in the week."
