The Gas Man, Anemone Jewels and Magic Wool

18 Nov

1    A lovely gas man has spent the day with us as he has been tracing the gas leak that we smelt last night. He is building his own Eco house and was fascinating to listen to as we waited for the other gas men to arrive to start digging up the front drive to find the source of the leak. The house is now clear but the men were working until 6.30pm, digging in the dark! They have enjoyed the bacon sandwiches and multiple coffees we made for them.

2    The anemones that friends brought us on Friday night have all opened up and are such beautiful rich colours. They remind me of my Mum who particularly loved anemones.

Jewel like anemones

3    Unable to go out or do much else today, I’ve been knitting and sewing up baby cardigans. I love this magic wool that makes its own pattern as I knit.

    Wow a gas leak! Yikes! When we have workmen here for extended times, we feed them and bring something to drink also. They have a difficult job and don’t always have the most pleasant customers to deal with. Love the anemones and your knitting reminds me of my mom also. She was always making us something to wear.

      We were lucky; the leak was on their side of the meter so we didn’t have to pay! And they were so good, there from 11.30am to 6.30pm in the cold and for the last two hours in the dark! They needed looking after! 🙂
