I had various errands to do in Hawick this morning, then I planned, in Malcolm's absence, to take myself out for lunch. As I had my breakfast about 6.45, I was rather hungry when I arrived at The Mill (I was going to put in a link, but their website is being most unco-operative!) at 11.30. But alas and alack, they don't serve lunch until midday. So what did I do? Well first, I settled down with a cuppa and my new magazine
then as I couldn't have lunch, I had a second breakfast! The sausages are from a Hawick butcher, and they were delicious
I managed to ignore the tempting array of cakes - I didn't even zoom in to take the photo, so that I wouldn't have to look at all their luscious deliciousness
when Malcolm was cooking dinner on Saturday at the flat - shock, horror .......... no spoon rest for his wooden spoon! So when I saw this rather cute one in a shop window this morning, and also saw that it was very reasonably priced, I popped into the shop to buy one. However I couldn't find one on the shelves, so asked a member of staff - she immediately opened the glass door into the window display and got it out for me. I do like good service!
I also popped in to one of the several charity shops on the High Street, as their paperbacks are only £1 each. I came home with these three
I have been stitching away, prepping more hexagons for Mrs Billings. I will soon have enough done to start stitching them together
when I was in the Post Office this morning sending a small parcel, I was asked what was in it. The woman's face was a picture when I replied seaglass, driftwood and sea shells ..........
and I will be sending off another parcel next week to the winner of the "name the octopus" competition. So, fanfare, roll of drums ...... the winner is Tracy, with her wonderful suggestion of Obadiah! Thank you for all your suggestions - perhaps we will have to ask Obadiah to produce some offfspring, so that we can use the other names!
