my first day as a blogger.

Well, I've recently started working a four day week as I'm working the forty hours I'm contracted to work in those four days. Decided I didn't need the extra dosh from working the fifth day, so might as well have the time for myself instead. When I made this decision I was full of good intentions of the things that I'd do to use the time productively and well! I was intending to go swimming regularly and get fit again; I was going to do all the housework that got ignored during the week and thus would have the weekend to do the fun things in life without guilt. Ha!

Was on the computer this morning getting myself a blog when the postman arrived with a parcel from Amazon. Yipee the three books arrived that I'd ordered; Zen and the art of knitting, Knitting on the road, and A perfect arrangement (the last one's a novel by Suzanne Berne). In addition to this my free gift from joining Rowan International a froth scarf kit.

So to cut a long story short my entire day (apart from an hour at lunchtime when I did actually do some decorating in the spare room, which I'm ashamed to say has been on the go since March of this year and is STILL not finished) reading "Zen and the art of knitting", which I have just finished. So not an entirely wasted day from a pleasure point of view, but as far as being energetic and productive is concerned not one of my better ones. (tho' in my defense m'lud I did make some bread!.... and do the washing up).

Never mind, got to go in to work tomorrow as we're stock taking all day and it's not very optional, so it's only fair that I should have a slob day. This evening I shall do some knitting. I'm working on a pair of socks in Rowanspun four ply using a pattern from Amelia Raitte's blog "Elfine's socks" . I hope that this link isn't bandwidth theft. It's a lovely pattern tho' a little more complicated than anything I've done before.

When I work out how to do pictures on here, you might get to see them.

Can't wait for you to work out how to put up photos. You can have one of the luvlyscarf & handbag I knitted.
