My brother, wife and niece have been up for the weekend visiting. This is the brother I don't see very often and whose wedding I went to last month so it's been lovely to see them again so soon. They're staying with Mum but came down last night for a few drinks and a take-away. It was a really good night and I'm determined to see them more often in the future.
My granny square pile is growing. I've worked out I need about 120 squares for the size of blanket I want to make. 'Squares' is very much a loose term as they are by no means perfect, in fact I've made a mistake on every one in this pile which means one side is slightly longer than the others. Depending on how much it annoys me I might unpick them and do them again.
I cooked roast beef for lunch, the first time for weeks as nobody has really wanted one and somehow during holidays our meal times become totally disjointed. Thomas wanted to help so I put him to work topping and tailing the green beans. He enjoyed the danger element of a proper knife very much indeed.
And I have eaten one of these today. I make no apologies for the fact. It was delicious and I enjoyed every mouthful.
