    Take care Robinredbreast. Hope you continue to feel ok. It's good you've got your daughter who will go shopping for you. Hope you can get through to work easily tomorrow, and have a relaxing day with your book and knitting. Sending big hugs.

    Fingers crossed your isolation period just turns out to be an opportunity for intensive "me-time".

    You know how to live, although I must say, I'd need longer than 8 days to knit anything!

    Thanks, it's all knitted now, every piece is separate ( even the soles of Teddy's feet) so it will be interesting to put it all together and then, knit a little jacket for it.

    I wouldn't even know where to start with knitting! Think I made a squirrel at Primary School once and it ended up looking like a skunk!!

    In lockdown/time at home I have however attempted DDIY (don't do it yourself) Too much time on my hands as started noticing cracks around windows, doors and walls but I am like a bull in a china shop and me doing DIY is like something out of The Keystone Cops or Laurel and Hardy! I always end up stepping in/on something and if you ever watch the Norman Wisdom, Bruce Forsyth London Palladium decorating sketch that is me to a tee!! :banghead:

    I bought some wool to knit myself a jumper several years ago, still not got around to it, I could send it over if you get bored...:);)
