Here's the throw that I started in Bournemouth a few weeks ago. Since I took this picture on Saturday morning I've done a couple more circuits of pale lemon. I don't think I'm going to make it much bigger but I will probably finish it off with a dark red edging....
On Saturday my Mum had a Coffee Morning at her house so I popped round for a little bit. The books were only 50p on the book stall so I picked up a couple. I've just started 'The Soldier's Return' and I think it's excellent. The 'table topper' will be perfect for the little table in the conservatory (and it was only £2).
I then drove over to Pershore to meet up with some friends for coffee. I was a little early so I wandered down to the St Richard's Hospice Shop. This charity has a double unit in Pershore so there's a massive china and homeware section. I found this lovely little blue and white jug (for £2). It goes brilliantly with another little jug that I found in the Oxfam shop in Stratford last summer. It also goes well with my general 'blue and white' kitchen theme.
When I got home I discovered that I'd been lucky in the raffle at the Coffee Morning. This is what 1kg of chocolate shells looks like.......!
Unfortunately (fortunately...?) I don't actually like chocolate shells that much. However my lovely pregnant colleague absolutely adores them. I brought them into work this morning and gave them to her before school. In a few weeks she is going to need all the energy she can muster - so I've given her strict instructions to eat as many as possible every day!
