My yarn stash that is; postie knocked on the door today with this:
First4Yarn I ordered £25 worth of yarn and a new hook on the 31st August and I've still not received my order. I had called a few weeks ago and was told some of the yarn I'd ordered was not in stock but there was a delivery expected the following week. Hmmm. Give it a few more days and then call again, I guess.
I do so love yarn. Ok this is acrylic and I am a bit of a yarn snob and do prefer natural fibres - but for affordability and versatility, acrylic does have it's uses. The chunky yarns, top right, are lovely and soft and I reckon will make a lovely snuggly shawl. Ohhhh, and as I plan to tackle socks soon, I've also found some Latex liquid to dot on the bottom of the socks to prevent arse over tit syndrome, on laminate floors ;-) I bought it from Opitec Crafts
Today has been a mix bag. High of receiving a parcel, low of being stuck inside with the kids because of the rain - soon everyone will have waterproofs though, and we can go and jump in puddles galore. I also have another parent coming to see me on Friday for a chat, so I've been printing off my policies (and realised I've somehow deleted my child protection policy, sigh) and putting together brochures and information on my setting. Germs have been assaulting me too, 4000mg of vit C, echina and lemon and honey helped to soothe a very tender throat. And this evening I was suppose to go to Stitch and Bitch group, but my babysitter let me down. I am rather miffed, mainly because I'm not entirely sure he would have called to say he wasn't coming, had I not called his home. Thankfully, I had decided I'd wait until he arrived before I called for a taxi; otherwise I would have had a taxi sat outside for 15 mins while I waited on him. I'll have a chat with his mam later - hehehe not often tactful, but I thought voicing my irritation to her 16yr old son was probably not a good idea, and be better to speak to her. Still, not the end of the world, there's always next week.
To finish on a high note (and pardon the pun):
