Well how are you all? Good Halloween? We only had the door bell ring twice this year so I thought it was pretty quiet. The children in our road are older now and I don't think it's been so popular this year. We are already hearing the fireworks going off early, people are setting them off before November 5th as usual. Last year some stupid kid threw a firework into my porch and burnt the walls and ceiling in my porch not to mention my carpet. If I had opened the front door just a few seconds earlier I would have had a firework in my face. Luckily it was only the house that got burnt. We had to ring the Police and Fire Brigade both services were very good and they said that they had been very busy that evening with similar calls. Kids! Nothing better else to do.
It was a nice day in the UK Saturday but yesterday Sunday was very blowy, wet and miserable. I was very naughty I had a lie in till 10 o'clock Sunday which isn't at all like me! I'm back on track with my sleeping pattern, no more late nights you'll be pleased to know and thank you all very much for your concern.
I must say how I enjoyed Cindy's My Romantic Home 'Show and Tell' on Friday. It always amazes me to see the most beautiful things which are showcased. It really is good fun and I would encourage anyone to have a go.
I would also like to thank 'Yarns from a Barnyard in France' for inviting me to join their Charity Knitting and Crocheting! It wouldn't be the Knitting I would be interested in but of course the Crocheting! Helping the needy would be a very good idea and I'm sure many more people would be welcome. I would be interested in making blankets as I'm pretty quick as you know doing ripples now! I have been thinking for a while about Crocheting for the Elderly and I have already made enquiries with Operation Elderly Charity Stitchers here in the U.K. My Grandmother passed away back in 1995 shortly after my Father and I loved her dearly. She was the most remarkable woman. She lived to the fine age of 103, and was very fortuntate that she could live and look after herself in her own home until the day she died. I remember the day she received the telegram off the Queen to congratulate her on her 100th birthday. It was a lovely day and she even made the front page of the news. She also had a personalised birthday greeting off her favourite football club Aston Villa and all the footballers signed it for her. I miss her such a lot.
We also lost my Husband's mother last year and I think it's for these reasons that I am drawn to helping the Elderly. I have never before done any Charity Crocheting but I think in the New Year I will be definitely starting.
I would like to welcome my new followers, glad to meet you all hope you'll enjoy my blog.
I've had some new Birdies fly over to 'Two Times' during the last couple of days. They desperately needed somewhere to land and seem to have made a home in my Bird Cage. I don't mind at all in fact I am pretty pleased! Let's hope they stay awhile and don't fly off.
Want to see them in their new home?
I hope everyone has had a good weekend and ready for some more blogging! I popped into Flickr a couple of times over the weekend, pretty quiet. I have to say Blogger had gone down again and took me a while to get on. I experienced the same a couple of weeks ago.
Have a good week everyone and I look forward to your posts.
Hope you'll make a cup of tea and watch my 'Birdie' slideshow!. Enjoy!
