In a couple of weeks I am taking the HD3QBEM away for a long weekend. She already has her knitting project selected and bagged up ready to take. So of course I followed her example.
I had kitted up the Mary Beale Christmas Wreath project but decided that starting to count fine linen under hotel room lights was not a guarantee of success. So I started it at home last night and couldn't stop.
The side street where I usually park my car while at work is being dug up by slow moving men in hi-vis jackets. They have carefully placed bright orange traffic cones and no parking signs and told me that it will be two months before they are finished. So I am leaving home half and hour earlier in order to ensure I get a carpark on another side street. Parking is very difficult in the area where the office is located. Of course I have the intention of finishing work earlier to compensate....but that doesn't really eventuate. So next week I plan on taking an afternoon off in lieu of the extra hours. But today was a beautiful Spring day - well, Spring-like and traffic was light so I was home by 4:40pm. Just as well. The HD3QBEM is not well and was very happy to see me.
