As the title suggests it has been a week of two halves.
I'll start with the GOOD.
My Hyacinth's have started to bloom, they smell lovely. I keep popping over to them, to have a little sniff, as well as encouraging anyone in the room to do the same!
I have started and finished one side of a round cushion. It has been a nightmare!
Look at all these attempts.
It was driving me loopy! No matter what I did, it wouldn't play nice! Curly and cuppy was the only thing it wanted to do. Swearing didn't help, nor did hurling it across the room. (Though it did fly quite well, a new sport perhaps?!)
Anyhow, I asked on Ravelry .I should have done that to start with! This group is the best (imo) If the lovely folk there can't help you, they'll know a place to go.
I'm pleased to show you the result of all the help and my perseverance!
Just the back to do. I want to do it in one solid colour, probably black or stone.
Now on to Bad week.
I did wonder if I should post about this, but because it's part of our lives, and it's going to affect a huge amount of my posts for the next few months. I thought I would. Not only that, I think I might need a shoulder to cry on at times.
So, here goes.
We are about to loose our house. One of the pitfalls of renting I guess. The landlady has decided she wants to move back in.(she has split up with her boyfriend. Allegedly) Her house, her rules, I get it. It doesn't make it any easier though.
Telling J was one of the hardest things I have had to do in a long time. Thank goodness he's a level headed young man. He took it better than I thought. P and I have decided to keep things as normal as possible for this next week, because it's J's 12th birthday next Saturday. We will not allow that to be ruined anymore than it has been already.
After that we will be launching operation new house!
I'm frightened, and have that horrible feeling in the pit of my stomach. OK, big fat wet tears are going to start again if I talk about it any longer. I'm off to get a tissue!
Till next time
