What a fantastic win for Cavendish in stage 5!

I feel like one of Team Quick Step at the moment sitting in the back, cycling like mad but getting nowhere. The challenge I have chosen really is a challenge, not just the lace but also sticking to one pattern and colour (I do love the colour of this yarn). Don’t get me wrong, I haven’t lost interest yet, but the Shlunkies is a bit itchy, I’m hoping it will soften up after a wash and it smells like it’s been in storage for about 5 years! The other members of my team are keeping me going with all their amazing projects.
It’s grown a little bit, I’d prefer to be a bit further on than this, but between having to make Pirate costumes for 3 of my children, visiting the leisure centre for “Body Combat” and learning “Signalong” and a full time job, I don’t think I’ve done too bad! I’m on strike next Wednesday and Thursday (for better pay as usual) so I can get quite a bit done then, and then it’s an opthamologist appointment for Ollie, so that’s another afternoon off on Friday and than it’s the summer holidays…WOOHOO!
Right now I am so proud of my eldest daughter…look what she got in the post today.
A poem that she wrote in school has been chosen for publication in an anthology of children’s poems
“The Big Green Poetry Machine Poems from Wales”. A published poet at 8 years old! (Gushy mothery bit!)
Well I suppose I better get back to the knitting.
Have a great weekend.
