DGD Norah stayed the night last night, this morning we made cakes & some clothes for a teddy she made on a previous visit. While we were making the dolls clothes the sewing machine became unthreaded. My L&M was intrigued to see that I was able to rethread the needle despite not being able to see what I was doing. He kept asking me 'How can you do that? you can't see the needle or the hole in it' I don't really know how I do it, but eventually explained that it was a bit like having sex with the lights off, you can't see what you are doing but you still know what bit goes where!
We took Norah home just after lunch & went on to the garden center to buy some more compost.
We need the compost as we are visiting Helen tomorrow & taking a mini greenhouse & some tomato & pepper plants to her, SIL, Ronnie is cooking lunch for us all. we have a puzzle book for Neal & Molly, we'll give Josh £5 at 15 he's too old for a puzzle book.
When we returned home with the compost a neighbour was outside rodding the drain, it seems she had a blockage somewhere, my L&M donned his gloves & lent a hand, eventually the blockage was cleared. By this time it was getting near to my L&M's chiropodist appointment.
He had a shower & we set off, he had his treatment for his onychogryphosis (rams horn toe nail) caused by nail bed damage, the chiropodist was also able to suggest a bottle rolling exercise to help with his plantar fasciitis and also recommend I massage his feet in the morning before he gets up.
Now it's evening & I'm going to do a little sewing, I have 2 more dresses to cut out & some work to do on a quilt.
