My problem is that I tend to write these posts (usually) late at night when no one else is vying for my attention and any household chores needing to be done are eithe done or put off until tomorrow (which I might add in regards to household chores frequently never comes) but anyway blogging late at night have its disadvantages because I find I've forgotten all the things I've noticed during the daytime that I want to mention in my blog posts!
So I'm going to keep a notebook with me to jot down thoughts,ideas etc during the days and see if I can make some sense out of my ramblings in the evenings.
So earlier in the week I decided to sort of sort out my very very large yarn stash.
What actually happened is ..I took it all out of the very large chest of drawers that it lives in,spread it all over the rug,looked at it lovingly,lay on top of it (much to my daughters amusement) and put it all back again!
I did eventually part with a big bag of odds and ends as my Sister has just decided to start hooking and didn't want to spend money on yarn until she decided if she likes it or not.
Back to my stash though and I came across about a billion of cheap acrylic DK in a myriad of colours so I've liberated these balls and they are on their merry way to becoming part of any number of small fun projects I've got on the go at the moment.
One last thing I wanted to mention as I'm hoping someone can advise me on this..
I have a houseplant I think its whats known as a 'Christmas Cactus' it belonged to my Grandma until she died in 2003 when I took it to live with me and the poor thing has survived against the odds because me and houseplants do not get on at all.
So I've had this plant for almost 7 years now which I thought was a good age for a houseplant until I got to thinking a bit more about it and I can never ever remember a time when this plant wasn't somewhere in my Grandma's kitchen.
So by reckoning it could be closer to 40 years old if not even older.
Does anybody know if this is possible and if so is this a good age for a plant of this sort?
