A very brief foray to the pharmacy late this afternoon once the red warning of wild weather had been downgraded to amber and I walked past my favourite fabric shop where the wording on this bag amused me.
There have been moments in the last two weeks when I have felt absolutely quanked but as the lovely Mr S makes such good progress my days are far less tiring. Thank you to everyone who has asked after his well-being and sent positive messages. The four times a day exercises are going well and the new knee being tamed with a little more flexibility every day.
Isn’t this delightful?
Donkey nannies in Italy.
Each year in Italy, grazing animals are moved from high pastures down to the plains. Newborn lambs are unable to make this journey on their own. Instead, they ride in the pouches of a specially made saddle on the back of a donkey or a mule nanny. They are taken down at rest stops and returned to their mothers for a bite to eat and a bit of nuzzling.
It’s National Compliment Day and this delightful one made my day, a quotation from Maurice Sendak, author of the wonderful children’s book, ‘Where the Wild Things Are’.
The following is, I hope, a piece of knitting that will appeal to the cat lovers out there. I wish I had made it!
Another piece of loveliness that came my way today, another piece I wish I had the skill to make!
It is the anniversary of the death/assassination of John Lennon, English singer, songwriter, musician and peace activist – one of the Beatles. I saw The Beatles several times in the ’60s in a very small venue above the Co-op when I (briefly) lived in Doncaster as a teenager. We loved them and this day in 1980 was a very sad one. This lovely photo came my way today.
We went to visit our dear friends today, one of whom is our lovely 102 year old whom you may have read about before. I took her one of my angels from yesterday, the top one if you saw yesterday’s blog. We sang carols and ate mince pies and had a lovely afternoon together. As we left, the sun had gone down and the sky, very dramatic. I loved the weather vane against the sky. Camera was on the wrong setting hence the fuzz.
