HOLIDAY TIME! HOORAY!
At last it's the half-term holiday!!!! I don't think I could have lasted another week. It's been a particularly busy and tiring half-term. I've pottered about this weekend, getting jobs done and bits of shopping bought, as tomorrow I'm off up north to see little Sophie! Yes, I'm looking forward to the visit tremendously. Mr Snoopydog has a week off as well, but as Oscar is still on very reduced exercise, he's decided to stay at home with him and spend some time at his allotment.
So, this morning I mooched on down into the city centre. What a lovely Sunday morning it was too! I took the above photo just as I arrived at John Lewis. Our city has many, many churches. In fact, it was once famous for having a church for every week of the year, and a pub for every day, with the highest number of watering holes per square mile in the UK. It is also thought that Norwich's churches were so popular, in part due to activities that resulted from the popularity of its pubs!
I've not been very productive this week, as far as knitting is concerned. I've almost finished the left front of Miss Snoopydog's cabled coat, 'Gayle' and I've completed the heel and got going on the foot of my mystery KAL sock.
I just love this yarn, with it's subtle colour changes and soft, springy texture. I expect I'll take my 'Raspberry Coulis' socks with me. No car knitting this time though! Boo hoo!
We had an unexpected visitor to our bird feeders, early one morning this week. Just look at the antics of this cheeky little chappie.
I'm not sure how much success he had!
Oscar was supposed to start his hydrotherapy on Saturday afternoon. It was a 50 minute journey and we needed the 'sat nav' to find the stunningly pretty little farm, nestled in the heart of the Norfolk countryside. The place has an excellent reputation and is used by vets from all over the are. Oscar was having a 'ball'. Just being out and about, was just the best afternoon! Looking forward to a swim was almost too much to wait for! He was assessed and poked and prodded...... and then came the crunch. Mr Snoopydog had forgotten his vaccination card!!!!!!!! OH NO!!!!!!! He takes full responsibility as he had taken the telephone call from the physio. Hmmm! Oscar was not a happy boy. So, after all that, all he got was a look inside at the pool.
Never mind Oscar. You get to swim on Tuesday.
It's a short post this week, as we seem to have been experiencing snail pace internet speed over the last few nights. I have no idea why, but it is very frustrating as every manoeuvre takes f.o.r.e.v.e.r! Hope you have a great week, wherever you are and whatever you are doing.
