I've never crocheted before but have not only always wanted to learn but also wanted to learn how to read a crochet pattern. When I mentioned this to my friend Margaret she gave me a set of crochet hooks. So I've been having a little bit of a...

These are worn under the top skirt but above the underskirt. Between the two of them they can hold as much comfortably as a medium sized handbag can. In one of them I carry my phone, keys, cash, hankie, mints, and a small note book, and in the other...

After four tries I finally managed to create a mop cap that actually fit me properly as it should. The first one I made the frill far too large. The second one I made the frill the correct size but the actual cap was too large for my head....

This was made with a second hand sheet costing £3 and the lace bottom came from an old single size bed skirt that I have had and not used for many years. I still have plenty of the sheet left to use for something else. .....

A couple of years ago Sarah brought me back from one of her visits abroad a cotton bed throw. I have never found a use for it because of it's colouring, so it has remained in it's bag since then. The other day I thought "I wonder if that bed throw ....

Just got back from an afternoon at the cinema with Aimee. We went to see Victoria and Abdul. The best couple of hours I have spent for a long time. Hilariously funny, and once again Judi Dench excels as Queen Victoria. One not to be missed....

This week I tried out the Church Meeting held in our complex dining hall Sunday mornings. I loved the singing in this one as it's more the conventional hymns which I am very fond of. The Bible reading was going through chapter 8 of revelations....

13th Aug 2017 - By Sunday I was all settled in the new flat so decided to the Church again. Brenda takes her car even though it's only a 10 minute walk away because she gives a lift to Rosemary that lives in her block and can't make the walk herself...

Before I start I have to say that I am not feeling low over all of this. I am taking it all quite well and taking it all in my stride. This move has been quite an experience and it seems that it's not over yet.

Up until about last August I had been growing my hair, or you could say, I had been ignoring my hair, for at least the previous 3 years. The reasoning behind this was that as I got older and went grey, although I would prefer to go pure white and not ...
