To everything there is a season ...

There are some people who would say that every blogger's post is self-indulgent, but today's post particularly is as I have written it knowing that I will be able to look back on in it in the future and remember - and for that I make no apology.

When big daughter was very small, I retrained as a gardener and one of my first clients was a lovely lady who had an equally lovely and very large Victorian walled garden.  Fifteen years later, the lady has sold her house and is moving on, and today was my last visit to the walled garden when I have spent very many hours in all kinds of weather.  We always knew this day was coming and it's absolutely the right thing for her to be doing, but it's still sad to know that the season has changed and something has come to an end.

Yarndale 2018 - my favourite yarny weekend!

Two weeks ago, I drove up to Skipton to help set up for the 6th annual Yarndale festival.  It was a gloriously sunny day for late September - I think someone at Yarndale has a magic weather wand as the weather has always been nicer than you might expect - and I sang at the top of my voice in the car all the way.  

When I got there, the preparations were in full swing and the Yarndale Hub was abuzz with activity.  (All the activity is behind me, this was a rare moment when no one was walking past! :) )

More Super Socks giveaway results

Morning everyone!

Thank very much to everyone who left a comment in the More Super Socks giveaway - I'm a bit later in posting the results of the draw than I intended to be but they're here now.

I've counted up the number of names (it's less than the number of comments as I've replied to some of them) and put them into the generator and this is the number that it's chosen ...

Happy Hooker, it's you!

Congratulations!  If you can drop me an email with your address then I'll get your book out to you straight away.  

I'd also like to say a huge thank you to everyone who has been so supportive of my new book whether in your words or whether you've bought it.  I loved meeting everyone who came to see me at Yarndale - it was super-busy and I do appreciate the time that people spent waiting to talk to me and show off your socks.  I'll be writing a post about Yarndale very soon - I think it's taken me the best part of the week to unpack and recover from all the book and Yarndale excitement!

Whatever you're doing today, have a wonderful day! xx
