After lunching in town on Monday, Mam spent the rest of the day packing because she was off to a two-week visit in Germany on Tuesday! Without her here, I seem to have a lot more time [
... and I can hear myself think again, ahem] which I spent mostly reading, reading, reading. I’m re-reading _The Crimson Petal and the White_ at the moment, a book I adore and love! It’s such a joy to read it again, to discover it all over again after it was locked away in storage for years … I’m finding so many favourite books while unpacking these days! This year is going to be fun
I’ve also been knitting a lot, finishing a pair of socks which I can’t show because they’re a late Christmas present, and I’m now starting a raglan baby cardigan – at the moment there are so many babies born left, right and centre to friends both local and far away, online friends and those “IRL”!
Yesterday I met up with the initiator of the Brno group on Ravelry for our very first local knitting meeting. Well, knitting and crocheting. Neither of which took place because we had far too much to talk about, lol! I’m now armed with tips for local yarn-shopping as well as recommendations for a cat sitter, car dealer and ENT Thanks again, it was lovely to get together at last, and I can’t wait to hang out again!
When I came home I had this in the mail – proof that I am health insured here, my insurance card arrived! Only, oh, 2.5 months after signing up?
