Thomas was still a bit under the weather this morning so he's been off again today. It feels a little bit like 'be careful what you wish for' with me thinking of taking him out of school tomorrow. Not that I will be doing. The whole school is having a party because they hit their attendance target so he wants to go in.
Mum had a dental appointment this morning. A filling came out a few weeks ago. She hates the dentist and it's the first time she's been in over 20 years. Today was just the check up, she goes back for treatment in a couple of weeks but apart from the filling and the usual scale and polish they always want to do, everything else was fine. She even got a sticker, although as she rightly pointed out at £265 it was an expensive one. Thomas gave her a big hug afterwards and said "I'm really proud of you Grandma".
This is the little project I had on the go last night. A pair of bootees to keep little tootsies warm. They are super easy to knit and are done on 2 needles.
I think I might make bundles up that include the blanket, hat, bootees and a toy. If I can find a quick knit jacket I might put one of those in as well.
Mark made an executive decision this morning to put our trip to Morton on hold for a few weeks. Instead we're staying put at Blackpool. He said it was too much for me to do putting the van away then getting it out again 2 days later and he wants me to just have a week away without any work involved. Have to admit I'm more than happy with that. I do love it when he gets all masterful. It makes me go quite wobbly at the knees!
