Project 366 week 33

Well Ziggy is still not here, he/she seems to have taken a liking to the current home and in no desperate  rush to leave. But regardless she has to report to the hospital for 2pm on Monday, and the plan is to start her on Monday.  In reality this is not a bad thing as the hospital is approx ninety miles away from her home and a long way to go if in labour, and more to the point a long way to go back if you are not well enough in labour when you get there. So next week will see pictures of Ziggy.

This week has been a week of beautiful weather, some days 24 and 25 oC, far to warm for my liking. The fan has come back into action both day and night. Lots of evening walks with the dog as too warm during the day to take her out.

I seem to lead a tedious life, work, walk dog and craft seems to be it lately.


This weeks sewing, Minky's is coming along nicely now that is five characters done with three more to do.

Loved the light on the water and thought the swan reflection was nice.

An amazing sunset tonight. On the hill is Barnweil Monument surrounded by trees.

Another nice evening and another walk. This time round the field. There were dozens of these out but every time I tried to photograph one a daft dog ran in the way.


Dinky wanted to go for a walk with Lilly, so we took a slow stroll along the back road. Daughter and the four youngest. Far too hot to be out but they enjoyed the walk.

Minky has wandered away. 


Thankfully back to rain today. The twins keep wanting to play with the older children's pokeballs. But they are not designed to be abused played with by a toddler, so I decided to crochet a couple. This is the first one, took me about two hours. Well a grandparent needs to stay up to date.

Changed over our BT package, getting much better for less money, how come they do not tell you of existing customer special offers unless you phone to cancel part of the package you are on? Here is the new router ready for the rest of the change over on Monday.
