It was the 19th of June, the start of summer and a wet and grey day. Oh well, can't have it sunny all the time, eh? At least we were spared getting wet and Zoomed in the comfort of our own homes. We had an enjoyable chat - no games, no quizes for a change … Continue reading Virtual Friday 14
22nd May and some bad news to report. Photo posted on FB by Heatons & Reddish GMP This damage was done to the pavilion some time during last week-end. Kids climb onto the roof every so often and this time instead of being satisfied with that achievement, they've gone one step further and decided to … Continue reading Virtual Friday 10
It's very likely that after restrictions end there will be many groups that just don't get back together again. Not so ours though! I might even consider adding a virtual meeting to the physical park meeting. With better internet access in the park we could combine the two 🙂 Mind you, in the light of … Continue reading Virtual Friday – 5
We had another well attended Zoom meeting today during which we exercised our grey matter with a short quiz. The rules were simple - you just needed to write your answers on paper at home - in private! There was no public naming and shaming or league position, which was just as well as I … Continue reading Virtual Friday – 4
What did you do today? I hope you made yourself a drink, grabbed some cake or a biscuit and knitted something beautiful for a little while. I didn't do any of the above, not in the morning anyway; at 11am I got together with a few knitting friends. Before anyone calls the authorities, this was … Continue reading Virtual Friday – 2
......what do you do? This Covid-19 lockdown has given many of us a lot more time in the home than we can cope with comfortably. I tried to be sensible and straightaway compiled a list of jobs for myself. Jobs that until now I've had the excuse of putting off for lack of time. And … Continue reading With time on your hands…..
What did you get up to yesterday during the 2 hours that we would normally have been knitting in the park? Liz spent some of the time enjoying the sunshine in her garden with coffee and corn cake. Strange names to give to her cats! Linda probably carried on with her Coronavirus Shawl which she … Continue reading Do tell
This is the first Friday that we have had to cancel our knitting group because of Coronavirus (COVID-19). So, it'll have to be a virtual group from now until further notice. I hope everyone's ok and not suffering from either virus related ills or the strain of isolation. Maybe you're like one of our ladies … Continue reading Virtual Friday – 1
I decided, today, and yes I know it's a bit late in the day seeing as we're already in February, that one of my resolutions for 2020 would be to post something on here at least once a month. With that intention I sat myself down to write something 'interesting' and paled at the realisation … Continue reading Where did the last few months go?
I've been very quiet on the blogging front - nothing since March! That doesn't mean that I haven't been knitting. I've knitted in between hospital appointments but these are now finished with, apart from check-ups, and I'm back on track, in the land of the knitting. The last post was about our new year's resolutions. … Continue reading I’m back!
