1) I realise that the lovely ladies who run the little yarn shop near here are really very lovely, but don’t know as much about knitting as I’d thought they would! Still, given they thought that the needles I wanted didn’t exist*, they were really very sympathetic about my dilemma!
2) The kids were invited out to a friend’s house for a birthday tea. Occasionally, when they play there in the evening they are all tired and it can feel quite fraught. Tonight, they all played beautifully.
3) Packing to go on holiday. I’m to visit my sister and her family for a few days 🙂 .
* I went to the other local yarn shop afterwards and bought them there.
