Well, it's the time of year when it's dark by the time I get home, so can't potter about in the garden or take the dogs to the park - it's a brisk walk for them along the road and no running off lead for them if both Ma & Pa are working.
Sooooo.... *twiddles thumbs*... what to do of an evening...?
This time last year I would have been settling down with a bottle of wine and nibbles to watch the telly, and kept my hands busy dipping with the left and sipping with the right. But I have just now thought of the solution to my Winter grazing ways....
Tonight the wool bag is coming out of the wardrobe. I will crochet, knit, make bobble hats, knit coats for my dogs, make some for the local shelter where they don't have heating in the kennels, and if they are an odd shape I'm sure some waif or stray will be grateful for a warm if ugly coat!
Hurrah! Surely crocheting or knitting will also burn a few calories too?!
