It’s Finished!

A lot of you will remember that I started knitting a jumper for RiverSystem back in April 2017. Then I pulled it out in July 2017 and started again with bigger needles.

The End Of An Era – The Removal Of The Severn Bridge Tolls

I’ve been going back and fore to England via the Severn Bridge since I can remember. We’ve gone back and fore across the bridge more times than I’d care to count! Every time, we used to smile and wave and chat to the people in the booth and commiserate about the weather being too hot… Continue reading The End Of An Era – The Removal Of The Severn Bridge Tolls

Soppy Sunday – I Keep Six Honest Serving-Men by Rudyard Kipling

I KEEP six honest serving-men (They taught me all I knew); Their names are What and Why and When And How and Where and Who. I send them over land and sea, I send them east and west; But after they have worked for me, I give them all a rest. I let them rest… Continue reading Soppy Sunday – I Keep Six Honest Serving-Men by Rudyard Kipling

The Secret Sisters In Concert

If you’ve never been to The Tunnels before, I would recommend it as a really cool place to go! It’s difficult to find the first time, but once you know where it is then you won’t forget again! Basically it’s two former train storage tunnels underneath Temple Meads Train Station. Think Thomas the Tank’s storage shed and you’ll kind of get the idea! Or maybe that episode where Gordon decided he didn’t want to go out in the rain and got bricked up in the tunnel! Anyway, it’s really cosy and intimate and you feel like you can get up close with the performers! We were sat in the front row though…

Trying Something New & Having Fun!

While we were sorting out our old house recently, I found lots of jars of yarn ends around the place like discarded ornaments of yesteryear. I really didn’t want to throw them out and while they look pretty, I really wanted them to be a bit more useful! So I googled uses for yarn ends… Continue reading Trying Something New & Having Fun!

Erica’s Cowl Inspiration, Details & a Few Random Thoughts

It wasn’t until RiverSystem told me he’d handed the keys back that I realised how much the stress of the last few months has had on me mentally and physically. As soon as the keys went back, it felt like a cloud lifted from my brain and I could think clearly for the first time in months and months. Since my bad fall in September really! I haven’t even wanted to knit or crochet or anything.
