Therapy

  Well my dear sweet friends, I had intended to blog this on Friday but I had a bit of a day, more of that later……

First off Hellooooooooo  to all the new people who are so kind as to swing by. You are so welcome here!!

This week I thought I’d show you the other nearest town to me and that's Harrogate. The Brits might know that Harrogate is posh ( I think it is) full of posh people in Aston Martins. Not me happily but I’m thinking you knew that already. It is rambling and you have to walk alot to get anywhere but there is much to see.

My bestest favourite place to be is here. Betty's tearooms. Its huge but very English and proper. Yummy food and a deli/bakery shop. When you come to visit we will go there together!! or maybe a virtual visit sometime soon.

Ive not done the place justice but I was shopping and I am so rubbish at it so I was stressed.

On Friday I had planned a wonderful crafternoon and just like Jane I planned to clean madly in the a.m and then feel less guilty playing in the p.m. I volunteer for a charity as treasurer so I got the books up to date filing a return at companies house only to be attacked by the guy who runs the thing and all because I wanted to leave. He poured so much pressure on me to stay with such unpleasantness I felt as if I was being held hostage. So instead of staying until the end of October I am glad to say my hands are washed of the whole awful situation and I am no longer obligated to the man.

Sorry that was a rant, don’t read it!! anyway I felt physically sick (still do a bit) and so crafternoon was no more. I rallyed though and finished this.

Oh how I love the VW camper. This is styled on the 1967 split screen version or splitty as they a referred to sometimes. One day maybe.

I am feeling more like me now I have made some squares for SIBOL. My grandma always told me to count my blessings (she was Methodist) and thinking about others has definitely taken my mind off me!!

  1. I've done my share of charity work in my life and it is so annoying to bump into these "so and so" types and I completely understand what you did. It becomes a lot easier helping out others in ways that we do not have to put up with such rubbish. I do a lot for others but in little ways here and there and it all adds up and is much more satisfying. Gee, now I'm ranting on your blog! Love your squares and so will SIBOL. I'm doing the same. Love your blog...as you can tell I feel right at home here.

  3. Hello I found your lovely site on icrochet (dont you LOVE it!). I'm very jealous of where you live. I spent a week in Yorkshire last October and we are going to the same place at the same time this year - lovely cottage near Bishop Monkton.

    I love your wavey blanket - I am planning some wavey cushions soon so your blanket has given me some inspiration.

    Keep up your gorgeous site, I've really enjoyed my visit and will be back soon

  4. Super cushion... but it looks complicated! I don't sew much! Your crocheted squares are lovely too especially the one that looks like a snowflake. Hope that your evening was enjoyable!
