Elsewhere I'm looking at knitting mittens and hoping to do so alongside crafty pals in an informal KAL, easily distracted my queue is now filled with all sorts of (mostly) novelty knits that I've no doubt I'll NEVER actually knit thanks to the thread on Ravelry I think I've frightened at least 2 members of the family and a couple of non-craft pals with some links!! ha-haa!!
FINALLY the other bit of "news" worthy a mention, our no.1.son.18yrs has got a JOB!
A temporary job - for the summer - for the purposes, mainly, of earning some money ahead of his going to Uni in the Autmn. dh secured him a position via an agency at his place of work which unfortunately means that HE has to fetch/take him due to in part the unfavourable hours - 6am-2pm and also the distance involved and lack of public transport links.
We feel it will be worth "our/his" while in doing this "taxi" service for our son not least for the cash we hope he'll earn over the summer! Yesterday was his first day after an initial day of induction, training and the obligatory health and safety sessions .. the alarm was set for 4.15am and it was a LONG DAY! .. zzz .. he came home via the train/s and poor dh used his lunch break to taxi our son to the station and it still took him 2hrs to reach home! (no direct line). Poor lad was exhausted as this is a physical job, as well as the early start - all he could do was mumble something that sounded like "go away! leave me alone! wahhhh FEEED MEEE ..."
He has a "day off" today and I've left him lying in until about 11am and now he's having a relaxing day in the house ahead of another set of long days wed-fri!! (poor dh went to bed himself at 9pm and went straight to sleep!!! - it was a long wait from 6am to 8.30am for his start!).
