Return of the Cankles

They're back, a combination of too much standing and the warm weather.

My legs now go in a straight line down from knees to my ankles.

My ankles are now the same diameter as my calves.

Never mind, they will go down over night I expect, they usually do.

I'm collecting the last few books I missed yesterday and I've packed up 2 or 3 boxes of yarn and knitting needles to drop off tomorrow.

I have so much yarn I have phoned a couple of other local care homes, I will be playing the wool fairy for a few days!

So thanks to 50 and counting and Lyssa for their suggestions about my yarn mountain.

My next question is, does anyone know where I could donate some garden tools to?

In Suffolk we have these people - Tools With A Mission - http://www.twam.co.uk/

I wonder if you have anything similar?

Or failing that if there is a local allotment site people are always after tools.

Do you have a learning facility for youngsters with down syndrome or similar. They use garden therapy and would welcome tools.

Some care homes ask the residents to help with the garden.

Sending hugs, it must be a challenge! x

My grandchildren's school have an allotment across the road and are always grateful for garden tools, excess seeds and anything that would help the children to learn more about growing things. I recently donated a spare bird-feeder to them and they were thrilled to have that, too.

There is a charity that sends knitted things to refugees and their knitters always want donated wool. Link to our local one.
