I should be working. Working more. Working on things that actually pay..... more. It's been over nine months since I left work and while I promised myself a wee break, there's wee and there's wee. I'm having too much fun, and as that was part of the intention, I need to be doing more actually paying work.
So today, full of the need to earn, I headed off to meet a couple of cousins (Eleanor and Gail) for a very lazy, chatty, girly lunch and mum joined us. We had such a giggle. I love our lunches. Today, we met in the Dirty Duck in Holywood, Co Down and it was great.
Back home, I delivered a card to a neighbour to thank her for her lovely handknit leprachaun. She donated him to help raise funds for a project I've been fundraising for in Uganda. He's now been named as Darby (as in Darby O'Gill) and is soon to be delivered to his new home in Belfast. She put so much work into this wee guy. Such a generous thing to do.
An elderly friend knit these boyos too - teddyboys for Uganda. Soon, they'll be on their way to endless hugs and fun in grubby wee hands who'll love them until the teds are falling to bits. Isn't that a satisfying thing to be knitting for! So for Darby and the teddyboys, thanks Anne and Bertha.
I love that people are so generous with their craft skills.
