Paying a visit

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. 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 .

Good to read you back! (that sounds terrible but hopefully you know what I mean) The fish are beautiful and it is so peaceful watching them... I agree, home made jumpers are wonderful...
Hope the catarrh is better soon - and I am sure your flight plans will go well... enjoy Scotland and hope we get to see some pictures...

Poor fish. We found a massive Koi Carp in the middle of our road once. My neighbour revived it in her bath until we found the owner. I'm sure you will be fine with your booking and then you will feel so proud of yourself. Your never too old old to learn new tricks. xxxxxxxxx
