Everything is against me this week. I was supposed to be attending a finishing techniques workshop with Debbie Abrahams on Tuesday but Steven decided to start a cold and I spent Tuesday listening to him wheezing and coughing. He has cheered up considerably today so hopefully is on the mend. However I have a small Teddy Bear sweater waiting to be assembled and whether it will ever get done is anyone's guess.

My computer is still giving me grief. Each day something else seems to stop working. Today it is reluctant to have anything to do with the photos in my camera as it is ignoring Bluetooth. It is also having nothing to do with my Bluetooth keyboard although strangely, the mouse still works. Luckily I have a USB keyboard which is working.

Now for something positive. At last I have some frogs in my pool, I began to think they had deserted me this year. They were obviously put off by the cold weather. And here is a photo of a visitor to my bird table, not taken by me but by my cousin Barry.

Snow again

I've been stuck indoors with Steven again due to a snow covered drive. At least some knitting has been done and some socks completed.

These were knitted in Austermann Step with Aloe Vera and Jojoba. After one wash they are wonderfully soft and lovely to wear.
My bird table has been very busy and it is difficult to keep it replenished. There is a large contingent of blackbirds who clear the lot and leave nothing for the smaller birds.

This year's robin is a shy, retiring soul, not aggressive as robins usually are. Here he is waiting patiently for his turn.
