Here’s my sweet daughter, on a very hot day, uncomplainingly wearing one of my new designs. This one is knitted in Rowan pure wool D/K in Enamel and Black, and has a line of oblong pearl buttons embellishing it.

So, it is rumoured that this is the last day of summer! (BBC weather). With that in mind I set forth on my walk this morning, thinking that the farm looked more beautiful than it ever has. The valley held a smidgen of mist, the sort of mist that holds the promise of a summers day and what a day……………………….

And then the sun broke through…………….

I can’t think of anywhere I’d rather be…………………

Nor a better walking companion……………..thanks, Charlie

It’s official; My husband is very hot in bed. At least he was last night…………….I’m a great insomniac, I hate wasting time sleeping when I could be looking, listening, feeling, experiencing, knitting, sewing, painting, creating………………sleep is just plain boring! But lack of sleep does, every once in a while, catch up with me……………..now it may be that I worked a very long day yesterday…………or it maybe that I had not one, but two large G & T’s…………….whatever, I was sound asleep on the sofa, knitting in hand, by eight o’clock………….I couldn’t keep awake. I staggered to bed, my husband stayed behind watching the news. I told him I’d read until he came to bed (B has Parkinson’s and needs help with dressing and undressing). I must have fallen straight to sleep………………………..I woke at 2am with B fidgeting………….”What’s the matter?” say I. “I’m so bl**dy hot”, he replies………….and he was! He had come to bed and found me sleeping – a rare event – he said he couldn’t bear to wake me, neither could he manage to undo his buttons so he went to bed as he was, it was probably the hottest night of the summer……………..so there you are………………my husband really is very hot in bed!

Now I’m off to catch the final rays of summer………………and remember, The ugliest truth is still better than the prettiest lie…………………..
