Friday Chat Day

Hello friends

Welcome to another Friday Chat Day, a round up of my week
which although quite uneventful I still manage to natter about it! 

Last weekend I had a second visit to the kitchen company.
It is so nice they give you all these choices of colours and designs.
It is also not so nice because it makes it difficult to make decisions.

Bella is not a great deal of help apart from looking at me quite 
concerned at how much time I spend looking at samples.
The units are going to be a very pale grey and the dilemma is worktop colour - 
light or dark. I am keeping the existing floor tiles.
I am swaying towards lighter worktop - perhaps it will not show every crumb
and generally look bigger?

Now she's just getting bored...


Now for something a lot more colourful.
I've started a new project, a simple granny square blanket
in Cath Kidston colours.
Yes, lots of ends and I normally sew as I go but got lazy.

I saw someone create this blanket on Facebook some time ago,
took a screenshot and I've been working it out from that.
So someone truly deserves the credit for selecting these colours - not me! 


BBCiPlayer - The Aftermath

Rachael Morgan (Kiera Knightly) arrives in the ruins of Hamburg 
to be reunited with her husband,  a colonel in the British Forces. 
The couple will be staying in the requisitioned house of German 
architect and his teenage daughter.

So just by reading the synopsis you can see trouble ahead,
sharing a house with a very dashing German gentleman when
things are rocky between in their own marriage.
It is a slow burning film but engaging.

Garden and bits

Hyacinth bulbs from last year doing their best to flower.

This Clematis has been in a sheltered spot and flourishing.
It's a strange variety with an usual leaf.

And so surprised to see this - I was waiting to prune this Clematis
once the milder weather arrives and yet is has started to grow.

This is on Darcy's shelter, I like to think it is a little message.

This weekend I am in my cabin organising February's 
Charity Kit - I will be grateful for the heater in there.

Take care friends, have a lovely weekend.
If you are venturing out - pop your scarf and mittens on.

I sent some beautiful flowers to my daughters thanks to you and the link you gave us. Couldn't get you a discount cos they couldn't find your name sorry.
Love the colours you're using in your crocheting.
Will have to go look for the film.... Love me a bit of mush....

Good morning Christine I noticed yesterday that some buds were appearing on a philadelphus I have in a big pot as well as bulbs popping up everywhere. I suppose we have had a mild winter though it does seem very early and there was quite a frost last night. However it is sunshine and blue skies now. I will however be snuggling up in the Hello Autumn throw I purchased from you and for anyone else reading this it is absolutely beautiful. Have a good weekend xx

Very cold here today but it was more frosty yesterday. Your Clematis is doing well. Love the granny square blanket. Will look lovely when finished. Good luck with your decisions on the kitchen. Have a lovely weekend.

Thanks for the catchup
I am going to make a suggestion re worktops Your floor tiles look darkish (like mine) so I would go for light A neighbour with similar went for dark It’s made her kitchen feel dark and small Wheras mine with lightish tops (a streaky grey) it feels brighter and bigger - same footprint
Take care xx
