~Knitted two pairs of socks
~Finished my Ravilious blanket
~Unravelled half of my Ravilious blanket
~Bought some new old cutlery (see above)
~Spent a day in Oxford with Katie where she was ecstatic to find a Cath Kidston shop -
(Me 'Aren't these buildings beautiful?'
Katie 'Oh my God, oh my God, a Cath Kidston shop!'
Me ' Some of these colleges date from the 13th century you know'
Katie (flapping her hands like a demented hen) 'Oh what shall I buy? I don't know what to buy!'
Me 'Look at the carving on that arch'
Katie 'I'm getting this flowered cup, look it's plastic I can take it camping')
~Picked grape hyacinths and pulmonaria
~Admired my flowering currant
~Bought lots of bunches of daffodils
~Dried lots of washing outside
~Reorganised my kitchen
~Admired the shadow and light play on my kitchen counter as the evening sun streamed through the window
~Made egg sandwiches
~Made sardine sandwiches
~Taught George how to make toad-in-the-hole, Spanish omelette and cheese sauce*
~Breathed a big sigh of relief when Tom finished his GCSE art and wondered why the course seems to have been designed in such a way as to put students off art forever
~Said goodbye to winter at long last
*He cannot remember how to make any of these things now
