Thank you for all your lovely comments about my Pseudo Sewjourn weekend and so pleased so many of you are going to do something similar – we need to keep our spirits up!
Yesterday morning I did a couple of things (which would have been our travel time), one of which I’ll tell you about after the weekend, and the other was to get some takeaway sandwiches for our lunch from a local cafe, to help support them.
After lunch I settled down in the lounge, putting on the fire and setting up “Boston Legal” for a bit of a binge. I came late to this series and missed the first season (or two? – I’ll find out as we go along).
I’d decided on a bit of knitting; my (purchased) walking gloves have given up the ghost so I’ve been meaning to knit these for a while to keep my hands warm and also give quick access to my phone (mostly for changing songs
skipping ads etc). By evening’s end my “Leaves Fingerless Gloves” (pattern available on Ravelry) were finished!
On the way I had pre-dinner nibbles and a glass of Chardonny
The Golfer has listened(!) and taken in all the nuances of our weekend at Sewjourn and expertly cooked up the kebabs and decanted the salad (all from The Golf Club kitchen) and came to the lounge door to announce that “dinner is served, Madam” and bowing. Hilarious!
He wouldn’t let me clean up (which I would have done if someone else had cooked at Sewjourn), but sent me back to the lounge room, then brought in dessert. Not much for presentation but A+ for effort! Scrumptious salted caramel tart, in case you’re wondering.
I actually felt a bit lonely stitching on my own and not up to watching movies – just didn’t feel right. So after “Baptiste” finished I toddled off to bed, yep, got into those llama pajamas and had a good night’s sleep. Did anyone else watch “Baptiste”? Not happy with that ending!
Today I’ve had blueberry pancakes for breakfast (me made as we always BYO our brekkie at Sewjourn)
and now its coffee time and decisions on what to stitch and what to watch!
Hope you’re having a lovely weekend too.
