a big wave to everyone on a very soggy Monday – looking out the window at the rain and having seen the weather forecast’s rain cloud sitting overhead all day, I’m glad I bought new wellies at the weekend – there may be a bit of testing in some puddles later today!
It was a weekend of sorting buttons (by size, kind of)
brought on by finding a third box of buttons while tidying my craft table so that I had some space to work – sorting coloured buttons (and then ribbon) was a satisfying job for a grey day. I also discovered a needlecase full of needles and two packets of them so even if I lose one a month I’m set for several years.
It was a weekend of welcoming my cousin’s daughter to Edinburgh – she is starting University here – and looking forward to four years of having her around – and reminiscing about my student days as she is in the student halls building next to the one I was in.
It was a weekend of studying the pools for the rugby world cup which starts on Friday and anticipating plenty of good rugby watching, and hoping that the commentators (based in London) remember that many of us are not backing England to win – for instance those living in Ireland, Scotland and Wales – I’m not holding my breath on that one as 3 of the main comment team are former England players and coach.
Hoping you all have a good week.
