Well the computer is up and running again hurray! Unfortunately the hard disk has had to be replaced and everything that was on the last one couldn't be recovered. I am trying hard not to think about all of the photos that have been lost or my years accounts. I have learnt my lesson and will always back up in the future.
I have just spent a wonderful weekend in Holmfirth on the Rowan Parent and Child weekend. I took four girls with me. my two girls Elenya 11 and Oriana nearly 6( I told my son Inigo that he would be the only boy and he decided against coming), my neice Esha 7 and my eldest Elenya's best friend Shannon. The oldest two learnt to knit with beads and crochet. The 7 year old persevered with her skills and made a bag. My youngest learnt to knit purl cast on cast off and make pom poms she is now the proud owner of a little purse and a pompom scarf. I made a little bag and I learnt something as well, thanks to the blue adt, how to knit toe up socks and how to knit two socks together. a technique I intend to put to use in the very near future.
