May 31st

I am not feeling too good at the moment. I have a headache and a tummy ache. I only had roast chicken and vegetables for lunch and so I don’t think it is that.Maybe it is too much sun.
I am going to have a cool bath and see if that freshens me up. Back tomorrow.

Hot again and my tan is nearly good enough for Jamaica!  I brown easily – thank God. We are going to the 3 Willows for a meal shortly. There is an intrigue there – Paul who runs the pub has a girlfriend, Paula, and they have been living together for about 10 years. Paula has a daughter, Zoe, but she is not Paul’s child.  Paula has now vanished – left Paul. He is said to be devastated – I shall find out more tonight!!
Too hot to think about yarn today.I have put some Rowan Classic Cashsoft Chunky in my store at reduced prices  Now I must wash my hair and get ready! Slip has posted another video – she thinks she is a movie star!  Back tomorrow.

At last!!  It was hot here today and I was able to sit in the garden. I also had a wardrobe purge and have thrown away lots of things that I have not worn for ages – I now have room for new clothes!!
I do have news of some Rowan yarns that are being discontinued. Scottish Tweed Aran and Chunky, Little Big Wool, Cashmere Tweed, Cashsoft Chunky and Wool Tweed plus shades of Kidsilk Aura, Wool Cotton, Pure Wool Aran, 4 ply and DK, Purelife Organic Wool, Cocoon, British Sheep Breeds, Kid Classic, Tapestry, Pure Silk DK, Extra Fine Merino, Cashsoft 4 ply and DK, Cashsoft Aran, Baby Cashsoft DK and Silk Wool DK. I am sure there will be some special offers on some of these – I shall be sending a newsletter in the near future.
Slip and John have gone fishing – I am going to trawl the internet for some new shorts! Back tomorrow.

I have reduced all my Rowan Bamboo Tape to $6 a ball – a bargain! I received some new Kaffe Fassett sock yarn today and will put it in my store tomorrow.
It was warm today but not enough sun to sit outside – I seem destined not to get a tan!
Now Slip is pesteriing me as she wants to write her blog and show you her new video and so I will make way!  Back tomorrow.

It has been wet again today but not cold.  I went shopping and also went to the builders merchants with John as he wanted some paint.  He is building a sort of car port adjacent to my second yarn shed. He wants to be able to put his Land Rover under it in the winter and can also put logs in the dry.
Slip was bad last night – she ate Rusty’s grooming brush!! I had to get a new one today and they are not cheap. She will be writing her blog tomorrow.
Nothing new on the yarn front at the moment. I have listed more Rowan bargain buttons – I am knee deep in buttons!! We are going to watch a football match on TV now. It is the European Championship Final and should be good!  Back tomorrow.

Rowan Bamboo Bag Handles - $8 a pair

Rowan Bamboo Bag Handles - $8 a pair

The servers that host my shop had a major power failure during the night and so all shops hosted on them went down. The fault was rectified this morning and all is working as it should!
I am still undecided about the car. I do like the Mmercedes SLK with the hard roof that folds away. I also like the leather upholstery done in two colors – seats in black and door panels and other trims in beige but it is SO expensive. Then I wanted the heated air scarf that blows hot air at the back of your neck from the front seat when the top is down. By the time I add all the extras on I could practicallyy buy a small house!! Or a BIG house in Jamaica.
No deliveries today. It rained a lot and so no chance to sit in the garden. I have not seen the baby blue tits but I can hear them twittering in the apple trees.
I am progressing with the front of my sweater and am being very careful not to go wrong! In fact I shall go and knit some more now. Back tomorrow.

Sorry I did not write yesterday. It was hot here and I fell asleep in the garden in the sun and woke up well on the way to being a lobster with a headache!!
I have put some Rowan discontinued buttons and beads in my store. These are no longer obtainable as Rowan are not going to sell them anymore.  We will be able to source new buttons used in Rowan designers from someone but I have not heard of plans for bead supplies.
I should receive details of all the new Rowan and Rowan Classic yarns for Fall this coming week. I wonder what there will be? My guess ( and it is only a guess) will be Pure Wool Chunky and possibly a new Tweed yarn – we shall see.
