It's been quiet. I was ill last week. Nothing specific like a cold just so many aches and pains - my rhinitus is really bad so my face was sore and all puffy under my eyes and I felt really down. Am a lot better this week but not still 100% more like 75% and climbing.
I've finished the clown barf socks but all other knitting has been the slow inching through lace - I love it but it is slow.
Lots of spinning - wheel and spindle.
Have read two Miss Read's 'Changes at Fairacre' and 'Farewell to Fairacre'. I have to be in the right mood for these books and when I am, I love them. I have one left to read - 'A Peaceful Retirement' but may also dig out some old ones of the Thrush Green series and read them again if my mood stays in the same place.
J and I are reading 'Red Dog' by Louis de Bernieres as we finished 'Through a Glass Darkly'. He seems to be enjoying but maybe that is because Tally-ho, the red dog, passes so much gas.......boy thing.
Don't have a lot planned - M will book his time off for our summer holiday later this week - hurrah. But the rest of this week is given over to pottering about, doing stuff in the garden, walking the dogs and just getting back to 100%.
