This is a quick update on what's been going on because I haven't had time to blog for ages.

Firstly, car is back with me and I didn't have to pay a penny! The garage said the work was free because of my inconvenience. So happy about that.

Secondly, had an internal interview at work on Monday and got the position. Now responsible for Citizenship amongst other things. A lot of work to do, as the Head has warned me, but I think it's a good role and I'm looking forward to getting my teeth into it.

Thirdly, it was Knit Club on Friday at my house. We had a great time. We were Lucy, Esther, Barbara, Jeanette, Mary, Di and Joanna, and of course myself. Ezzie and Grandad were there for a little while, as Grandad had come around for tea, but then all the women overwhelmed them and they left.

Fourthly, Brioche has made great progress and is really quite big. It is lovely, though I've not touched it this week because I have been too busy,

Fifthly, we go to Germany with the 27 kids on Saturday. Really cannot wait, and hoping to do a bit of sock knitting. Unlikely I'll be posting for a while, but my next post should have some photos of my adventures. German knitters are aficionados of sock knitting, so I'm on the lookout for sock yarn that I can't get here.

Have a wonderful time in Germany! If you find anything interesting on the sock front let me know as I've become a bit obsessed with finding different yarns and patterns now!

Glad to hear everything is ok now - I missed the knitting evening but hopefully will be around for Septembers!

My brioche is still tiny and being slightly ignored but am glad to hear yours is growing well!

Take care!

Congratulations on the new post! Have a great time in Germany - don't let daintyknittingsticks have any info on any more yarns - she has more than enough already! I have finished my brioche but am not bowled over with the colours so am starting a new one!! Hopefully see you at the meet on the 25th.
