Have a heart

Good evening.  Here we are on another Sunday, another month.  November is here already and there is Christmas on the horizon.  The ads have started with a vengeance and there are Christmas knits popping up on Instagram and Ravelry.  I have no plans for any seasonal knitting this year.  I'm hoping that the grandkids sweaters will do another year.

I got the hat done for Jess and along with it a cowl/neck warmer.  She loved the hat and not yet seen the cowl, but what's not to like?

I had planned to start on a tunic top for me but now I'm knitting a sweater for Gus, he also needs a neck warmer so will get that done too, then turn my attention to me.

We have been trying to get out walking most days.  Wednesday we walked from the village to Houghton Mill, then along the river loop and back - 6 miles

We strolled into St Ives yesterday for the Farmers Market - 3 miles and today went for a walk around Hinchingbrooke Country Park - 4.1 miles.  We are fortunate to have some good walks close at hand

I think I've finally seen the back of my cold, I had an awful sinus headache on Thursday afternoon which put me to bed early and left me feeling wrung out on Friday.

Not much planned as yet for the coming week apart from giving blood and a pension review, exciting or what?  Actually I tell a lie, we are going to see Seasick Steve on Friday evening, that should be fun.  In fact that will be the second concert in two weeks, I forgot to tell you about Jools Holland last Sunday, a very good show, he never fails to please.


  1. Fun stuff. Walks and concerts are good for filling retirement days.
    Those alpacas sure did catch my eye.

  2. Like the hat and cowl. Perfect for a little girl. You do have great areas for walks, such pretty settings. The alpacas look so soft. Do you get to pat them? It is getting close to xmas. Don't know where November's gone to. Happy Thanksgiving !
