February 16th

Hi Everyone ,Im later today,I had not one, but two residents,ring me ,this morning ,as you would imagine we do keep in touch ,so sometimes its nice to chat to them about everything and nothing ,Each call lasted just under the hour so I can guess they are with NTL or similar.One of them is quite housebound so I dont mind the the time I spend chatting to her ,especially as she makes the call ! One of them told me people with bus passes wont be paying anything after April ,we will see , They tend to whinge a bit about their ailments ,so today I whinged back about the dentist tomorrow!! 

I got the pictures of my flowers sorted out,and also a picture of the cardi ,so I've got pictures and a graphic on together !! I started the rib on the new little jumper with no sleeves ,last evening ,as I watched the final programm 'Who do you think you are?' I have to admit to not finding it quite as interesting as the others ,even though it was watchable ,maybe because I didnt 'know'her as well as the others.Well its like the donkeys gallop today short and sweet ,Have a good rest of the day .....with love from

Lovely flowers Jan, you were lucky. Love you cardi did you have to pick up all the stitches round the border or is it sewn on. Have not seen a pattern for a cardy like that you would  like to scan it for meplease and I could have a go at it. Love Joan.

Beautiful flowers and well done on the cardi, it looks great.  Nice to have a good old natter, not that I do much these days. I forgot that programme was on last night so did not see it but I would not have known who it was either.!

Well done on the 'Cardi' I knitted one ages ago, but someone fiinshed the 'round edge for me. Did you know? when you get Roses plunge into 'boiling water for a few minutes, before the cold? they should last longer...I used to help a friend who had a Florists - I learnt a few 'tips'

I love your roses and cardi. I used to knit Aran sweaters for a Scottish firm a few years ago. I hope your dentist appointment goes well and you don't need treatment. Jeannette.
