Well I went off to Craft group last week with the intentions of
doing a bit more on the waistcoat I'm knitting.
Not much got done and its not been picked up since.
That's because look what's at the back of the sofa
and has distracted me from the knitting.
(You will never see this room this tidy again)
It's a new to us desk and chair from our favourite antique
shop in Todmorden, Yorkshire, Picture House Antiques.
This is where I am perched this week and going off at yet another tangent.
Triggered by this book I'm reading came a flood of childhood memories
that saw me rapidly note making before I had even got out of bed.
Since then I've dug out lots of old family photo's, searched through
my basket of old books, found this 1923 autograph book I picked up
in a charity shop sometime ago and have started writing little stories in it
working from my notes and adding pictures like this one of me with my younger
brother when we both had fang like teeth and the dentist removed them by gas.
Do you remember that horrible mask they put over your face.
Mum said that I kicked the dentist hard in the shins. I had my wellies on so I bet it hurt.
Look at the groovy wallpaper we had. It was yellow and green.
Now if you are sitting comfortably and tune into BBC1's
Money For Nothing programme at 3.45pm each day well tomorrow (Thursday)
you will see this chair. It's ours. Have a look to see how we came to own it and
what it looked like before its makeover.
For now though its time to head off to Julia's place to see what
everyone has been doing at their desk over the last week.
