>Today has been a grey kind of day, not in a wholly kind of bad terrible this life is no good way, but certainly in an arrrg damn it pah kind of way.
My tumble dryer has broken. It has decided that it will no longer dry clothes. That spreading heat is now a function below it and it is now on strike. Its official, my tumble dryer is an employee of British Airways. Gosh darn it. But now, my tumble dyer is in combination with my washing machine. So if my tumble dryer is on strike, does this mean my washing machine has also gone on strike? I hope not. However, I am currently running it on a washing cycle to see if it will still clean my clothes for me. I am holding out hope on this one because it would be expensive to replace, and y’know lack of funds would be prohibitive.
But on a happier grey theme I made this earlier in the week.
My Mums parter is sick at the moment and I thought hey a gift is called for and bought him a book and made him said book mark up above…. and actually down below as well.
It was incredibly simple to make yet looks quite impressive, the pattern is also below (indeed is you can call its that its so simple!)
1st row: k5, p5, k5
2nd row:p5, k5, p5
3rd row: k5, p5, k5
4th row:p5, k5, p5
5th row: k5, p5, k5
Rows 6-10, repeat rows 1-5 in reverse (5 through 1). And then, continue repeating for the length of a book.
There you go. One book mark. Easy peasy.
Oh and because we all know how much I like taking photos of the sunrise, here is yesterdays, it was a good’un!
