Fridge magnets!

Well it comes to something when the most exciting thing I've done today is take photos of my fridge magnets! The weather has been so hideous. It has torrented down with rain for 26 hours now without a stop. The wind howled until a short while ago, and I've set foot outside three times to do the birds, and got soaked. I am now ready to go up the wall being stuck in here all day and already thinking I can't wait till bedtime. It's been such a long day. I've paced from room to room looking out of the windows. I couldn't believe it when it was nearly dark, and I looked at the clock and it was only 3.30.

Made a few phone calls anyway, spoke to my ex, to Irene and to mum, so that killed about two and a half hours. I had a call from Sky this morning too offering me a free deal - 30 days the whole package, no strings, can cancel on 13th February if I don't want them. So I said yes, so watched Happy Feet on movies, and the footie on Sports. Gonna watch Phantom of the Opera on C4 tonight, not sure if it will be any good, but it's a stage show I have always wanted to see, would have loved to see it when Michael Crawford was the Phantom, I had the album years ago. The film may not be any good but will take a look. Will record it too and put onto dvd if it's good.

So to the fridge magnets. When I took the photos of the kitchen yesterday, it occurred to me how many I had. I wonder if anyone else collects them? I have mainly bird ones of course, and some dog ones, hedgehog, guinea pigs, I have bought lots of them from the Gift Shop at the Nature reserve at Cilgerran I go to. They are only a £1 each, I think a bargain, some of them are really lifelike.

Oooh can't leave without mentioning I lost 3lbs this week. Another 16 to go and I will be a very happy bunny.


Happy Feet on the telly!
































Came in the living room earlier and found Diddy Boy grooming Emma's head, she was fast asleep and didn't know! Time I got the camera though she was awake lol.

That Diddy, I'll say it again, he's one amazing bird. Wow, what a lot of fridge magnets, they're beautiful. Yay, three more pounds gone, that's great Jan.

If you were researching the wool for that hat you wouldnt be so bored. YOu could even get a spinning wheel and spin while you watch tv. Wouldnt that be fun? how about that? Is there a gym and or a swimming pool around nearby for you to while away those windy rainy cold dreary days?

I'm no good at knitting, and this place is way too small to house a spinning wheel, although I guess it could be fun, I can't swing a cat in this house!

Funnily enough Pat and I were talking about going swimming again today, we are looking for somewhere other than where we used to go, the water was bloody freezing. There's another pool a bit further away but it maybe ok.

Your house is nice. But do people do stuff with wool around there like spinning and carding and felting and that kind of stuff? Its true knitting isnt for everyone me included but some people have fun with it.

Don't know of anyone anon, I guess maybe someone does but don't see any advertising or anything about it.
