I have been to the hairdresser this morning and so I am ready to go to Smiths for dinner tonight. I have been looking at the menu and trying to decide what to have! Maybe the Lobster and Tiger Prawn cocktail to start with and then the Jumbo Tiger Prawns Pan Fried with Garlic Chilli Butter and Herbs or should I go for the Lobster Thermidor? I think John will have a steak.
I saw two swallows flying round today and I am hoping they will nest in an open-fronted shed we have. A blackbird is nesting in there and has babies. We have had to move everything so that Jackson cannot climb up to the nest.
There is a new book for Rowan Tweed coming in August. Called Tweed, it has 16 designs by Marie Wallin and uses Fine, DK and the new Aran Tweed. There are both one colour and multi coloured patterned designs – I like this book!
Now I must go and press my Kidsilk Haze Ash before sewing it up – yes, I have finished it and it took exactly the correct amount of balls – I just have enough left to sew up with and knit the tie. Back tomorrow.
