I can’t believe I’ve managed to miss yet another Tuesday’s Tallies. But to be fair I have been distracted this week by a poorly boy. He’s back at school today but we had a couple of days of sore throat, high temperature and snuffles which meant lots of snuggles and warm drinks, even a game of Monopoly, but not a lot of crochet.

Our weekend was busy too. On Saturday we went to visit our local college to check out A level courses for our eldest to start in September. I think we all found it quite exciting. The courses all seem very interesting, in fact the A level Spanish students can go on a trip to Cuba!! It’s going to be difficult for him to decide which subjects to take, as he’s doing very well in most of his GCSE courses and seems to enjoy most things. Definitely Music though, probably Spanish, and then it’s between English, Maths, maybe a Science – there’s time yet!

On Sunday we had a lovely family day – a stroll in the sunshine and all together for dinner in the evening – simple pleasures.

Back to the business end – my ripple is packed away in the bedroom for the moment as we had to have the chimney tested yesterday meaning the sitting room was full of smoke and I didn’t want to risk contamination!! So no photo. And as there hasn’t been that much progress you’re only missing a couple of rows of colour. On to the 34th colour change now and still loving it. This morning I’ve revived my 2 at a time sock project and hopefully I’ll have a photo of that for next week.

In the meantime I thought you might like to see these…

Aaron's eclairs

My second son, Aaron, who I wrote about last week, started his GCSE courses this September and he’s doing Food Tech. And on Thursday he made eclairs, the best I’ve ever tasted. And I’m not just saying that – they were really good and I had to take this photo very quickly before they all disappeared. I’ve never even made choux pastry before!

So hopefully I’ll manage to make Tuesday next week. I’m off to check out all the other projects over on gingerbread girl’s blog now.

Have a great week x
