Sorry I was AWOL yesterday – just a busy time!
We went out to dinner as planned on Saturday. I had an avocado pear with bacon, stilton cheese and balasmic vinegar dressing to start with and John had deep fried Camembert with a redcurrant saCe. Then I had an escalope of pork tenderloin topped with a slice of ham and cheese and John had a lemon sole. It was very nice and I enjoyed it.
I have ordered lots of Kauni yarn today – both laceweight and the normal weight. It should be here within a week – stand by!
Today is a holiday here in the UK and so no deliveries. Tomorrow is my birthday – wish I was eighteen again!
We have discovered what has been upsetting Slip’s tummy. She has been gorging on fallen plums – I caught her eating them by the dozen this morning. No wonder her tummy is upset!
Now I am going to sit in the sun for a bit and then it will be time to cook again. Back tomorrow!

29th August

I have had my hair cut and am getting ready to go out to dinner,we are going here to the Zodiac restaurant.  I have not been to it before but it is supposed to be nice.
Slip had another upset tummy in the night – obviously something is not agreeing with her and we are going to limit her to chicken and biscuits for a while,
Nothing much else to report – I will give a full review of our meal tomorrow.

August 28th

I am pleased to report that my eye is much better – no need for dark glasses today.  I am going out to dinner tomorrow but shall not wear my contact lenses as I think it would be asking for trouble.
I received the new shades of Louisa Harding Grace today but have not photographed them yet. I also received the last of the Rowan 4 Ply Cotton and 4 Ply Soft shade cards along with more Silky Tweed in Ember.
It is my birthday on Tuesday but we are going out to dinner tomorrow instead. Monday is a holiday here and so we figured that the fish at the restaurant on Tuesday might not be fresh and thought it was best to go tomorrow. I am having my hair cut at 8.30am and then will go grocery shopping for the long weekend. Back tomorrow.

August 27th

My eye is much worse – streaming with tears and so sore. I am wearing dark glasses as the light hurts it even more. I shall have to go to the eye unit at the hospital tomorrow.
I have reduced all Louisa Harding pattern books  by 25% – John is grumbling about the amount of books I seem to have accrued! Stock up now – they will make nice Christmas gifts!
Sorry, but I can’t write anymore – looking at the screen makes my eye sting like mad. I am going to put a cold face cloth over it now! Back tomorrow.

August 26th

My eye is feeling less scratchy today and so I think the drops are working. I shan’t put a contact lens in for a few days tho’.
It is wet here and cold – almost like winter. The chimney sweep is coming next week – I must keep Slip away from the soot!
I am expecting a Rowan delivery including Kidsilk Haze, Denim, Silky Tweed and other bits and pieces. I hope that the delayed shades of Lima will come soon too!
No other news – back tomorrow,
