Well, when I say blanket I use the term loosely as it is not as big as I would have liked, not because I didn't have the stamina, but because I needed more yarn!!
Here it is:
I must confess I am becoming a bit of a yarn snob and find I dislike acrylic yarn, I have found that cushions I have made from it have not worn well at all and I've had to throw two away that have gone fluffy/bobbly.
I don't know how people afford to make huge blankets out of nice yarn though, as it's usually at least £4.00 per 50g for anything decent unless you are lucky enough to find a sale bargain.
In other news, last week I had to have my cracked tooth out and it was horrid!! It didn't hurt when it was actually removed of course as my lovely dentist gave me plenty of anaesthetic, but that in itself was unpleasant as I had to have an injection in my palette. It took a-g-e-s to come out too, a good 15 minutes of digging and yanking.
Luckily my Mum came with me as I felt quite shaky afterwards and she took me home to look after me. I went home after lunch as the anaesthetic was wearing off and boy did it hurt!! I took lots of painkillers and took myself off to bed with a hot water bottle to lay my cheek on and about tea time it stopped hurting so bad.
Now, a week later it's still a bit sore - in fact I have had a sore mouth for four weeks since I broke the blimmin' tooth in the first place!! Hopefully it's on the mend now.
The countdown is on to my 40th on the 24th Septemeber, Mr G will give me no clue at all as to where he is taking me - exciting!!
Before that though I am stupidly excited for the return of Downton Abbey this Sunday!! I am currently rewatching the last two series on ITV3 each evening, I have an early bath and then snuggle up on the bed with my fleecy blanket and my iPad to lose myself in it for an hour - bliss!!
