October passed in a blur & looking back over the month I realised I hadn't done anything!!!
Due to holidays at work I had to work 3 weekends in a row but I did enjoy a morning at the boot sale with my parents, finding my lovely cat planter, a new cardigan, cocktails with friends, spending time with my children, knitting, knitting & more knitting!!!
I didn't even do anything for Halloween this year, any ideas on how to slow down time??
I enjoyed a week off, new birthday shoes, spending time with my children, celebrating 7 years in blogland, knitting for Crikey in November, a night out with the girls seeing Rocky Horror Live & walking 5k for the RSPCA Big Walkies.
I didn't enjoy having a chest infection for over a week!!
No books finished in September! I must find my reading mojo again.
I did manage to finish one in August
Three sisters are growing up in 1920s Bermondsey - the larder of London - with its bustling docks, its spice mill, tannery and factories.
Southwells jam factory is where many of the girls work. And Milly Colman knows she's lucky. At Southwells she can have a laugh with her mates. She's quick and strong and never misses a day's work. She needs to be. Because at homes things are very different.
The Colman household is ruled by the tyrannical rages of the old man - her father. Often Milly feels she is the only thing protecting her mother and younger sisters from his murderous violence. At least autumn hop-picking in Kent gives all the Colman women a heavenly respite.
But it is here, on one golden September night, that Milly makes the mistake of her life and finds her courage and strength tested as never before.
This was recommend to me from Amazon & at only 59p on Kindle I couldn't say no.
It was a bit of a slow burner & took a while for me to get it to it. However once it got going I was hooked.
It seemed to past in a blur & I didn't do very much!
At the start of the month I went to Lupton 1940's event with my brother & his family. This was the 3rd year we attended & rather then getting bigger it seems to have shrunk! Not much happening unless you like US army vehicles.
Cracking on with my Christmas cardigan & taking photo's of my fair isle berets for the internet.
Spending time with the children, dressing Bobby up!, attending a rally for Jeremy Corbyn & celebrating my birthday at the end of the month.
OH moved back in the middle of the month as his money ran out, I've had a year of being alone but over the last few months he's been spending more time here. I'm pleased but just waiting for the next time!
After a rubbish week off from work in July I was really looking forward to my break at the end of the month....... but stupid me lifted a very heavy 1940's sewing machine in a wooden cabinet on my last day of work so I've spent the last week at home in pain. Not a happy girl!
Hey ho my next week off is the beginning of December so lets hope that's better!
