Things have moved on since I last blogged. We appear to have become foster parents to the little cat pictured earlier. She has settled down quite a lot and is a joy. Rosie, the dog, has been very tollerant of her skittish ways, all is well with the world.
I still have'nt finished the quilt. It is far too warm to have across ones knee to hand quilt and it's too big to go through my machine, even rolling it with cycle clips. They will have to wait for it I am afraid.
If I remember my history correct it is traditionally a winter job anyway. They used to do the patchwork in the summer and quilt in the winter as it kept one warm whilst working on it. Thats my excuse and I am sticking to it.

Sadly I had my purse stolen last week. Like most of us ladies I had my life tucked inside. Driving licence, bank cards, loyalty cards by the hundred, bus pass, rail pass, leisure pass, gym pass, and on and on and on. Half of those cards no one could use so I hung on before cancelling in case they threw away what they didnt want and they were retrieved. No such luck. Of course I cancelled the important ones but what a mess, I have been all week trying to get them all replaced one way or another. There was no actual cash in it and I stopped the cars before they could get any so, as far as they were concerned, it was a complete waste. They gained nothing but caused me a lot of agro. Drink, drugs and gambling have a lot to answer for cos you can bet your boots that one of these adictions were at the root of it.


  1. Sorry to hear about your purse being stolen - this happened to me some years ago (just when I was queuing to buy the best bargain, nicest top ever! I got to the till and my purse was gone so missed out on the top too!!

    I managed to cancel my cards pretty quickly (I subscribe to CardGuard who will do it all for you with one call) and there was only about £10 cash so I knew they weren't going to get much but there was a diamond and emerald necklace in one of the pockets which I had taken off a couple of days before as the chain was so fine I was worried about breaking it - it was a present from my work boss at the time for my birthday!

    A few days later, I had a call from my bank to say that someone had found the purse in a gutter and seen that I was a customer of that bank and taken it into a branch which managed to find me through my bank cards which were still there. I picked it up and lo and behold the necklace was still there! The dodos who nicked it had whipped out the cash but not looked any further - the necklace was worth much more than everything else put together!

    Hope you get your replacement cards soon.

  2. HA! I just KNEW you were going to end up keeping the kitty!

    You know, I agree about the vices being behind most crime, but sometimes I think that these days, things like purse snatching are just recreation for some....just something to do that gives them cheap thrills. Or makes them more acceptable in their crowd....

    I almost believe that the snatchers sometimes just want to feel that they have upset someone...

    Well whatever...I am glad you got everything canceled before any purchases could be made...hope the culprits get dyssentary
