what a mad year it was in 2020, our markets closed early in March & we watched the world sink itself. what a mess.
it's now 2021 & hopefully a better year for all, some of us are still in lockdown around the globe as the virus takes on new mutations, wonderful!
happy to say i've stayed reasonably healthy but then i don't travel anywhere
our markets hopefully start up at the end of the month, last sunday in Feb. YAY
we are still debating whether to do weekly , fortnightly or monthly, will let you know
not a lot has been done, have more problems with my hands which seemed to have settled down slightly, finished my Hermione Everyday socks & wearing them, finished my sons jumper too & am trying to work out how to make fingerless gloves for that's what he has asked for, have tried twice now but keep getting the fingers wrong.
also finally started my BWM cardigan, not much though before the summer heat hit & also found a lovely pattern for my jumper, will show photos next blog.
started more socks, currently have Easy Cable socks by Winwick Mum (on my side bar, she has lots of tutorials for socks) on the go in BWMs multisock yarn Lagoon & 2 others on the go to keep it all interesting
on the home front i had several disasters last year, not life threatening but close hah
septic sludge pit totally died so the water was backing up & flooding my laundry, termites in the toilet door frame/jam, both of these have been sorted except for toilet door needs work, the front door is collapsing as well.
life is full of little & large journeys/surprises to keep us on our toes, front door is still waiting to be looked at.
baby chickens! they are so adorable! my DD1 & her BF incubated a few eggs (5doz @) not sure if i'll go that way again, all up we only got 20 that hatched; 4 out of the first lot, they came here end of November & 15 from the 2nd lot; 1st batch were a mixed & the 2nd were Buff Orpingtons & Silver & Gold Lace Wyandots, only got one gold; hopefully we get mostly hens; already lost one of the babies, it just disappeared over night, am guessing maybe small snake.
they are all quite big now & the 1st lot should be ready to lay eggs soon, can't wait.
DD1s BF also has a young horse that will be coming here too, he is just putting up a fence...
well, will quit here
hope everyone is keeping safe
thanx for visiting
