Just to finish I have to tell you how awful the weather is here in North Wales.It is cold and we have had sleet and hail for days on end.I just want some sunshine,just a little bit will do!
Any ideas for a new project would be welcomed.
Helsie,Kathy,Una,Bobo Bun,Jane where are you?Have you stopped blogging?
Love to you all.

We have just had a weekend down in Cambridge with our son and family and from there went on the train(Eurotunnel) to France for four nights.A chance for some great food and some wine buying.(Claire if you are reading this I promise to meet up with you for coffee next time!)The trouble for us is a six hour drive back from Eurotunnel home.A great chance for some sock knitting and a nap!!
I am now working on a shawl to take on holiday in May.Off now to watch Coronation Street and of course some knitting.See you soon with the completed socks and possibly another shawl.

Happy Easter to everyone.Here in North Wales the weather is not good.Really heavy showers and cold.I have just had a text from my daughter who is in the Lake District and it is sleeting and hailing there.It is such a shame for cafes,ice cream sellers etc to have bad weather on a Bank Holiday Weekend.I think Easter ought to be fixed.What do you think?

Overnight someone slashed two tyres on our bigger car.We live in a quiet cul de sac in a small market town but we have a public footpath that runs up one side of the house.This morning the car had a definite lean.We called the RAC rescue who came and patched the tyres up so C could get it to a garage.We reported it to the police because we wanted a crime number for insurance purposes.We thought that would be that but this afternoon we had a visit from the police who said that at least six other cars had had tyres slashed and they were taking it seriously.Unmarked police cars out tonight and more men on the beat.We ended up wasting a day and having to buy two new tyres just because of mindless vandalism!

Last night we went to the Liverpool Philharmonic Hall for an evening with Alexander Armstrong,pictured above.I doubt whether anyone outside the UK will know who he is.In the Uk he is known as a comedian,actor and host of a show called Pointless.What is not known about him is that he went to Cambridge as a music scholar and is classically trained.He has released a CD a short while ago which is top of Classic FM's chart.The evening was amazing .He sang loads of songs,played the saxophone and piano a little.His backing group/orchestra were very good too.The whole evening had a kind of jazz feeling to it but he has an outstanding voice and did not hit a wrong note.We came out buzzing.It was the first night of a UK tour.Catch it if you can.
