UK Swap Question of the Week #1

Saturday 14th June is World Wide Knitting in Public day.

What are you doing to participate in WWKIP day on Saturday?

Didn't really do anything for this as I knit in public an awful lot anyway.

What is the strangest place you have ever knit?
Depends what you mean by strange. I've knitted on buses, boats, hospital waiting rooms, in the car, in bed, standing up in the kitchen waiting for stuff to cook, at children's parties, in the pub. Any available moment really....

Here I am knitting away at a recent family get together (socks of course!) Not WWKIP day but it was a Saturday!

UK Swap Question of the Week #8

What three items would you want with you on a desert island and why?

1. My husband (for company and stuff)

2. Some sheep or alpacas for my own supply of wool (would fashion some knitting needles from twigs if necessary)

3. A wind up radio (hopefully would be able to find the BBC World Service)

UK Swap Question of the Week #7

Do you prefer to watch films at home or at the cinema?

Prefer the cinema but tend to watch at home mostly these days

What is the last film you saw?
A french film with Jean Reno on French telly while I was on hols - was quite funny.

Have you seen any films more than 10 times? If so which ones and why.

Rocky Horror Picture Show, the Blues Brothers, Some Like It Hot because I never get tired of the humour in any of them.

What film do you recommend that people should see?

Some Like It Hot. A timeless classic and worth it for all of the double entendre in the train scenes! Still funny after all this time.

If you could be any character from a film who would it be?

Amelie - love her quirky whisicalness

Bit of a do!

Just back from a weekend at Mantha's C&B - thats camping and breakfast. We couldn't all squeeze into the house so four tents in the back garden just about accommodated all of us.

Plus there was plenty of room for fun and games too

Here's the obligatory group shot taken on Saturday evening when we were all feeling rather mellow!
