another one for today

Just come back from my long walk with great friend and child who live around the corner. It was great - we debriefed the week and she now sees the distance I travel each day to get to work. she dropped her husband at work, which is near mine, and now understands why I say it is far. It was also great talking through student teacher. Her reaction "what an idiot", in amongst a lot of other things as well.

Anyway I got home and I put a load of washing on and knitted a few rows in my zipper cardigan with hood (yes I am making a hoodie!). Up to the right front now. Left front all done - looks smashing. I thought that I would quickly catch up on the blog reading and found that Laura had done this meme and I decided to do it to as it was interesting. If you feel inclined you can do it too. I am not tagging anyone!
