Well, Facebook says I can’t give an explanation, but I reckon I can here on my blog…
It is a photo of a shawl that I am knitting – it’s full of mistakes but this is the first time that I have used lace, so, mistakes included, I’m really pleased with the outcome. This photo was taken when I had 4 rows to knit – it’s now complete. It’s a raspberry ripple coloured lace and I hope that my Nanna will like it. She likes most of the rubbish I give her (scarecrows on sticks, lumps of rock and badly knitted/sewn together Christmas elves!) so I think there’s a good chance she will like this shawl…
Remember I wrote about some fireworks that were cancelled, where I was quoted for something out of context? Well, the display was put back on three nights later and I went. This is a photo I took on the night and then I added the black and white filter. I figured that it contributed as a photo of my life because I was in attendance of the fireworks 🙂 They were really rather beautiful.
This is the “dumping ground” of my life. As soon as I get home, I hang things up – my hand bag, my keys, my scarf, my hat. It is the first place I properly visit when I get home (after dumping shopping in the kitchen or running up to pee) and the last place I visit before I go out. Sometimes I even say “thank you” to these pegs as I take my key!
I took this picture of my life because it demonstrates how easily I get ripped off when eating out. I went to a craft place and decided to get myself some lunch while I was there. A chicken sandwich, a slice of cake and a cup of hot chocolate came to just short of £10. It would have been cheaper for me to go to McDonalds or KFC. The prices weren’t very clear, so when I got to the till I asked “HOW MUCH?” and then muttered something about it being cheaper to have gone to McDonalds for a McChicken McSandwich McMeal…
I took this picture at the same time as I took the previous picture. It’s some yarn I bought – 200g. It’s a turquoise/blue/brown colour – it’s nicer than it sounds and it was cheaper than I thought it would be (an extra bonus!).
This is one of my favourite mugs to drink from. It was a gift from my Guide Unit when I left to move away. I think it has magical powers because it keeps my tea warmer for longer than my normal mugs 😉 Anyway, I didn’t take this picture because of the mug. I took the picture because it was my first mug of chamomile tea. I’ve been having difficulties sleeping at night and chamomile tea was recommended. I bought the cheapest tea that I could find – ASDA brand for 70-something pence. It actually tastes rather nice. Whether it’s helping or not, I don’t know…
I can’t write too much about this photo. It’s a secret. Top secret. Like, so secret, if I tell you, I’d have to hold you hostage until after Christmas…
