Im having a bad day!

Apologies to those who read my blog for the huge gap since my last post! I meant to post before i left but forgot. Last week i was in Rome with my mother! I had a wonderful time and had intended to spent today showing you lovely photos but i have had an utterly terrible day and i didnt have time.
Today i was helping my mother take some garden rubbish to the local tip because i have more boot space than she does. I went by to do it today because i had a dentists appointment in the area anyway. Upon arriving at the tip we realised i had a flat tire... So the AA were called and a lovely man took the spare out and changed it for me. He also kindly pointed out that the spare was in fact going bald and needed replacing. So i decided to hurry to the garage before my appointment. The mechanic took the flat tire off me and told me since i'd been driving on it flat it was 'knackered'. So he will have to replace that one and when it is fixed he will swap it for my baldy spare. Long story short i need two new tires..
So with this news i hurried onto my dentists appointment fearing i was going to be late. I arrived to be told my appointment was in fact for yesterday.

Excuse me while i go and pour myself a large glass of wine...

I'm glad other people do that with dentist's appointments too!

Hope tomorrow is better & looking forward to seeing your pics!

I have many days like that and thought it was just me! In particular I hate car trouble as I always feel I'm being conned at the garage.

BTW. I am not ignoring the fact that you tagged me for the idiosyncrasy thing - I will catch up with my blog posts soon ... honest:)

Oh no - what an awful day - I'm so sorry it was a bad one. Car trouble is the worst, it's always so expensive - I hate cars when they go wrong.

I had wondered if you were ever coming back to your blog ! You seem to have been gone a long time - I missed you !

Oh dear! Nice to hear you are back in blogland. Look forward to photos of Rome (I have only spent a couple of days there, but enjoyed it).

Oh! Never mind, at least you have a cuddly molly, to make you feel better.

Hi Emily, you asked about the hood, how it worked was, you knit the back and cast off, knit the front sides and left them on stitch holders and then picked up stitches all the way round, just like you would with a neck band, and knit for a lot longer to make a hood. The hood was in fact the most time consuming part of the whole pattern! Three needle cast off was great fun though, I recommend it if you haven't tried it, there are instructions in the first SnB book. Any plans to join us down the Forth anytime soon?
