Map is printed, tickets to hand, list written, cash in purse, today we are off to the Knitting and Stitching at Alexandra Palace, normally we go on the train which is a pain, so this year Rachel has volunteered to drive! I hope my nerves are up for it, maybe that's why I'm awake early, nerves or excitment about the day. I'll fill you all in later on our purchases.
I think the reason I'm awake early, apart from Peter's snoring, is I'm worried about my Dad, he is in hospital again. He has shingles on his head and in his eyes, so on top of the chemo side effects - very high temperature, he's not doing so well. I really wonder if the cure is worse than the disease. We would like to go and see him this weekend, but my mother says he doesn't want us to come, now I'm not sure if thats her saying it or if he really isn't up for visitors. I will ring again tonight and see how things are.
Currently on my needles - Zig and Zag Pram Blanket, a real stash buster, 4 rows of pattern, 42 repeats, so it can be as colourful as you want.
The chicken coats have gone down well, in fact we even have a photographer who wants to take some pictures, again watch this space
