Not what you were expecting.
These are not tweed iphone cases are they?
And its a blurred picture.
Sorry. Its such a dull day today weather wise.
But otherwise quite bright. I started with a visit to the dietician with my elderly neighbour who just can't seem to gain weight. It started on the wrong foot because the dietician only called her name once in a very busy hospital department and neither of us heard so he called the next person in. After an hour he came out of his room and called another name at which I leapt up and told him we'd been waiting for an hour. He said 'I did call you' so I didn't exactly say 'well you should speak up young man' but he got the picture.
Then it was very funny to sit and listen to the exact opposite advice to that I normally get, being given to Alice.
Drink full milk, eat more biscuits, have lots of snacks.......
At home I had received my trigger hooks from BFNT and I can't praise them enough. I ordered them on Monday pm and they arrived today. I bet if I ordered them Monday am I'd have got them yesterday. They really are good.
After that I met the men in charge of the ruination of my favourite walk. Their suggestion. Pointless now its finished. We walked and talked. I told them I hated it. My case was not helped by quite old pensioners coming along saying things like'Its marvellous' and 'I'm sure you'll get an award for this' and 'Do you mean to say you've gone to all the trouble of seeding the edges, how wonderful'.
All punctuated by me saying 'I hate it'.
I can't deny that within their brief they have done a wonderful job. I just didn't think it was necessary.
My Mum was worried about me meeting two strange men in the woods and thought they might get fed of my complaining and throw me in the Goit. (River)
They didn't. They were very polite and forbearing. I did apologise for constantly criticising their great work.
Then I came home to a message that someone wanted 10 sketch books for Friday.
So ..thats why I haven't finished the Tweedy Phone cases.
It seems many of you, like me, do not own an iphone.
The one in the original picture is my husbands.
You can tell this because it is switched off.
After a visit to the dietician what better thing to do but to nip to the village store, buy frozen chips (not oven) frozen crumbed fish (not environmentally friendly) and a b***** great big vanilla slice. (not healthy)?
I feel full.
Ooops..it was Alice who needed to eat more...silly me.
