Me on a Monday - 12 July 2021

Last week wasn't a bad week at all.  Some of things I enjoyed were.....

Flowers - One of our Year 6 parents bought me and Mrs W beautiful sunflowers for taking care of her, and her son for the last few years.  She's such a lovely lady and will be returning to volunteer next year even though her son will be moving on to High School.

Watching "The Fall" on catch up.  (Re-watching the first two series for me and watching it for the first time for hubby).  Who'd have thought a series about a serial killer could be so watchable.  You can read about it here.

Wimbledon (again). Definitely two names to watch out for.  Denis Shapovalov (Canada)  and Matteo Berrettini (Italy).  Two extremely talented players who will, without a doubt, be back in action in the coming years.  Shapovalov gave Novak Djokovic a run for his money in the semi finals and didn't go easily and Berrettini gave an excellent performance against the afore mentioned Djokovic in the final. 

Working hours.  I managed to keep my early dart on Friday by telling the boss that I wouldn't be happy to give it up.  I now have to work until 4pm on a Thursday, but don't now start until 8.30 on a Friday and still finish at 3pm.  A good compromise I felt.

Theatre Tickets - I booked tickets for next April (yes! April 2022) to go with the ladies in the office to see Mama Mia.  I can't wait.  I've missed going to the theatre in the last year or so.

New crochet project - With my High Tea Floral finishing last month, I needed a new project.  Enter the Amanzi Throw.  I'm totally in love with this pattern already.

Buying wool - Of course with starting a new project comes the joy of buying more woolly goodness. It should be here in a few days and shhhhhhhh!!  hubby doesn't need to know :0)

And just like that we are into the last week of term.  The end is in sight.  Until then take care and have a great week.

TTFN.

    1. I'm loving this new pattern. Jen is just so talented. I wouldn't even know where to begin writing a pattern. And she makes a video for each one!!

  2. Your latest crochet project looks marvelous - like the round. Good news about voicing your concerns regarding a change to your work hours. I would say a good outcome for everyone. The sunflowers are so cheerful looking, what a kindness.
