Strikes, rain and cancelled sports day

Well it's been a busy old week.

Firstly there was the two day strike on Wednesday and Thursday of this week. Not the best time to strike given that we are in the middle of a general depression according to the media but I suppose downtrodden local government workers have to make a stand at some point.

Happily the second strike day coincided with Natty's school sports day so I was chuffed to be able to go to it but alas... rain stopped play and it was called off. Never mind.

Bronia will be 4 on Monday and I have got all her pressies and party stuff sorted. Just need to make butties and jelly nearer the time.

DH got into a debate with a Friends of the Earth campaigner while in town today. Poor soul just got a 15 minute tirade about the complete inequity and pointlessness of the newly hiked up road tax and what exactly does it do for the environment anyway until the poor chap glazed over and gave up.

Also tootled off to Stitch and Bitch on Wednesday after not going for a few weeks only to find it wasn't on as the shop owner is on hols. Grr... was all geared up to buy more stash too and will have to wait another week to do so. Natty wants me to knit a pair of socks for her teacher and I was after sock wool. In the end I have created a 'bespoke' pair from leftovers (will post a piccie when finished!)
