 We had a smattering of rain last night but none of the promised thunder and lightening. 

Still it is cooler so Beano is more comfortable and has had a nice long walk today.

Steve is in a foul mood, probably worrying about the car.

I'm looking for some stashbuster crochet patterns, I'm watching some YouTube videos but some of them aren't very clear.

As it's cooler I've tidied a couple of drawers, cleaned the bathroom, reorganised the freezer and next I'm sweeping,and mopping the rest of the floor. Such an exciting life I lead!

Sounds like my life under the restrictions we have. Lots of boats. Cute picture of Beano, what is that in the last photo. Loo's or refuse containers in enclosures?

MPOE, they are bug hotels on the canal side.

I give it to you - I couldn't live on a narrowboat - I like the idea of them, have no problem with living tiny but I wouldn't be a big fan of being on the water (I get seasick and have inner ear issues) nor the locks, etc. Now seeing all the views if cruising / towns, etc I would like but that about it. I could live in a true Tiny House no problem (I lived tiny for 5 years in FL in small tiny cottages and loved every minute of it and would go tiny again but my partner wouldn't like it, lol). And even more so since you have so much on your plate with your partner too :) Have a great weekend!!

Lovely photos, Hester. It looks positively idyllic on your stretch of the canal.

Some hat pattern sources for you.


Today I achieved nothing, I had great plans, I was going to sort out the last kitchen cupboard.  It contains all the crockery, mixing bowls,...
