Hi guys, sorry it's been a while, this week has been manic!
First of all, we got another washing machine, for free, and it works! Woohoo!
We have to keep it out at the minute so we can hook the pipe over the sink, but that's a minor setback, we can finally wash things without me breaking my back or having builders hands! We will still handwash some things but i'm so pleased!
I also got a bike for free from Freecycle!
It needs minor work to it, mainly a clean up, but other than that, it is in a fairly good condition, now we just have to find one for the hubby and it will save us a fortune in bus fare when we have to go the nearest town (5 miles away)
I plan on finding a cheap pannier rack and pannier bags to put the shopping in.
I also found a pair of walking boots, in almost new condition, i have been wearing them every day haha they are sooo comfy and warm, they will be perfect for long hikes and winter weather
Speaking of hikes, me and some friends did 7 miles about a fortnight ago
This is Izzy, the walk leader's guide dog
And little Hallam, who did ever so well on such a long one.
This is some our knit and natter group (I'm on the left, with the blue bandanna), we are now starting to add borders to the squares of our community blanket, ready for sewing together! I can't wait to show the finished product, it will be stunning!
In garden news, the leeks are getting much bigger! I must remember to take a photo!
Some of them have been eaten, i have no idea what it could be, so does anyone know of leek pests? and of any effective deterrents?
What have you been upto this week? :)
