Battling with the hosepipe!
Covered in muck, I stripped off and filled the washing machine - before sewing another couple of toiletry bags - I want to have made 7 (strange number I know - but! ) and currently have 5 so I am getting there! Heck I even braved using a double headed zip - I have always avoided trying this in case there is a gap in-between because I have put the heads on wrong.
By now it was time for an early lunch ( Bacon and asparagus pesto pasta since you ask) before setting off for the inaugural "Knit and natter" group (wearing my nice new M & S top may I just say!). There was a good turn out and we certainly had a good natter -meeting new friends is always good. Heck - I almost finished the back of my waistcoat and even got to sample the new Pin Gin cocktail - the owner was in and the barmaid gave us one between us to sample. I can't go for another few weeks, but - wait for this Jo - a group of us are going to try knitting a sock!! I say one - just in case it goes horribly wrong!!
With the car thermometer saying 27 degrees(yikes!) I went home and even did some weeding! Let's make the most of these lovely sunny days - my phone gives us tomorrow and Friday (with the temperature starting to drop on Friday ) before the rain returns! So - tomorrow will hopefully see the patio finished, the table moved outside and the lawn mowed. Who knows - maybe some more weeding!
