I find I have not wrote on my blog since the beginning of the month . I have not been away but I have been busy and also a few ups and downs in my daily life , every one has ups and downs but I don,t usually take them seriously, simply becauase they are not serious , just little set backs and inconveniences.
I,m showing the beautiful goldfish I had nurtured and brought through the last very hard winter . About 10 days ago a heron took 7 of them . For a few days I was so sad , I still am ,they were so friendly I was really fond of those fish . I thought the heron had taken the lot but bluebell suggested we clean the pond and replensh it . This we did and to our surprise found 3 fish hiding in the plants .Very frightened .
Off we go to the aquatic centre . The size of the fish I had lost were £15 each . No , I was not going to pay that , I,m not saing they were not worth the money . They are .
I decided to have small babies and watch them grow as I had my lost ones . After lunch at the centre I came home with the plastic bag and my new fish .
I was apprehensive about putting them with older fish but up to now all seems well ..It was funny watching them . For a few days they swam in a little gang close to the big fish . The big fish didn,t seem to mind . Then it was if the bigger fish had enough of these tiddlers hanging on and chased them round a bit . I thought , this is it the little ones will be frightened ,but no , they are o,k . feeding well and not tagging on to the bigger ones any more . A happy ending to that little saga .
I have catarrh which also caused earache , headache and the discomfort that goes with it but not an excuse for not blogging . I have been cruising blogs and really enjoyed looking at blogs I had not read before . If you like embroidery in an arty way take a look at this and also other blogs on the side bar of it. http://dogdaisycharms.blogspot.com I personally am always amazed at what other people do . At present I,m knitting garments ready for winter , so much more warmth in hand knitted sweaters and cardigans and they last and wash much better than shop bought stuff .
My next big hurdle is I,m tavelling to Scotland on the 23rd of this month to visit Silver Sewer . The hurdle is I have booked my flight on the internet , I have to print off my boarding pass and then confirm my flight . I have never done this before and to say I,m very unsure is an understatement .
