Although the weather has been atrocious here, we have managed to get out and about a bit. Adam and his dad had a Boys Day Out on Monday and took themselves off to Edinburgh Castle followed by a picnic in Princes Street Gardens and then a trip to the swimming pool - a good day was had by both (there were swords and stuff - need I say more?).
We also harvested some of our potatoes this week. We have three large containers which we are growing them in - not that we don't have space to grow them in the garden, but someone hasn't dug me a veggie plot yet! The children were so excited to dig them up and we managed to get 18 of varying sizes from our smallest pot. I was pretty pleased with that and they tasted lovely - we had them with our meal last night!
Today was the first day I've managed to get near anything creative for ages. I was determined to do something productive and so finished Miss Lucy's dungarees. They are bright indeed! She loves them and they are very good for dancing in apparently! I've still got a largish bit of orange tie dyed cordurouy left over if anyone wants it.
I must also tell you all that I have posted my final registration form for my next OU course. Yes, amazing though it is, I have Made A Decision. This means there is no going back unless they decide they have had enough of me and my hysterical behaviour. I've gone for A215 Creative Writing - partly because it sounded really good at the time and partly because I have to pick something. It does sound a bit tricky however and as I've lost my grasp on most of the English language over the years, I am expecting another steep learning curve. Oh well, in for a penny...
