What am I doing?

20 Jan

Well it was weigh in day yesterday…..I lost another kilo (yayyy) but then proceeded to have a day where the new eating plan went out the window!!! Wow, how quickly do we fall off the wagon? I guess the only thing to do now is to put it behind me and climb back on, so today I am starting over….I got to bed early last night so I am not nearly so tired today and that should make it easier to stick with it. As I’ve said before when I’m tired I eat :(. Hopefully Damien (the 2 year old) will be better behaved today, he was completely over the top yesterday) That might have had something to do with the fact that the 21 year old managed to feed him a whole piece of hedgehog slice….you have no idea how much sugar and chocolate there is in that!….So Damien was nutso all day, he drove me and his brothers and sisters crazy!

I have still been working on some crochet patterns, the 3 tests I started are nearly finished, so I will soon have 3 different patterns ready to publish. I am working on a lovely lacy purple shrug at the moment. I was really lucky the other day, I dropped into one of our local thrift shops and there on the shelf was a cone of the most gorgeous purple yarn….I am 90% sure it is a silk/linen blend of some kind…..It looks very much like some of the yarns I buy from Colourmart they have gorgeous yarns at such a reasonable price, free shipping too! Anyway unfortunately there are absolutely no identifying marks so my chances of working out exactly what this is are very small. I am going back to the same shop tomorrow as there were some other cones of yarn there too but I only had enough money with me for the one….I hope the fine gauge of the yarn has put people off buying them!

This is the yarn, although it looks more blue in this picture, may camera has a terrible time photographing purple! IMG_2199
