Anyway, we took her presents, a new cardigan which she wasn't that bothered about and some chewy mints and a birthday cake which made her eyes light up. I expect some little old lady will be sat in an armchair next time we visit wearing the cardigan. No matter that we follow the rules and label everything, it seems to be a case of share and share alike with clothes.
It's been pretty quiet up at Number 14 today. Plumber Chris (we have two workmen called Chris working up there so they have been given the titles of Plumber Chris and Plastic Chris), has removed a corner shower unit and replaced it with a bath. It's not quite ready for an 'after' shot but here's the before. Tom removed the bath when Joan couldn't get in it any more and had a shower installed instead. We will have to do something with the tiles though as there are about 30 holes all over the place that were drilled for the shower seat, grab rail, etc. that Joan needed.The granny square blanket has been neglected lately but I managed to crochet a couple of squares this afternoon.
But no jigsaw today. I'm still psyching myself up to working through all those black & white pieces.
