July 30th Amended

I have put the new Rowan British Sheep Breeds Fine Boucle in my shop. I like this yarn very much – it is soft and has a springy feel to it.

Today we went to Cambridge to get some gaskets for John’s car.  He decided he knew a better route that would avoid Cambridge City centre.  As usual we got hopelessly lost and had not got a clue where we were.  Eventually we found the way by going to Cambridge airport and re-routing from there.

A new whistle came today!!  I still think we will find the old one which I DID NOT loose!

The answer to the last puzzle was “Business before pleasure” and Jacki, Christine, Maureen, Susan, Theresa, Mary and Janet were all correct.
