The world's not so bad after all

The weather today is being in considerate. After a week of dryness, it has spent the night chucking it down, at one point it was loud enough to wake me up. and all morning there have been odd showers, this is really annoying as I have to go in to town today, which means walking or spending money on the bus (= no Starbucks treat in town), driving through the city is madness. My new Rainbows start on Tuesday and I have none of the things I need to give them! The Scout and guide shop only opens on a Saturday so I can't even put it off until tomorrow!
I have a few things I need and apart from that I am not buying any more, as I need to start saving for my SkipNorth trip, or I will have no money to spend!
I'm also still trying to save for a new camera as mine is rubbish, I've found the one I'm after, but need to wait to buy it until I have some money. Nobody would go in to teaching for the salary when you first start!
On the bright side I have just been given one of the things I was really wanting, I mentioned my desire to learn how to spin on one of the Ravelry boards and a very kind person offered me her spare unused wheel for free. (I know I can't quite believe it either)

Mornings are the most evil part of the day. It takes me an extortionately long time to rouse myself out of bed, we're talking 45 minutes here, admittedly I do get up and make breakfast but then go back to bed with it. At times when it is still dark outside it seems the only logical place to be.
I've also got a hankering for some decent cold weather, like we had over New Year. All the pictures of the freezing weather over in America and Canada is making me very jealous. Maybe it will come over here.

Right the sky has turned from black to grey so that means work is calling...

Brain freeze

This blogger is having a brain freeze. Right now nothing seems interesting enough to bother blogging about. I'm knitting baby things for someone at school and am busy knitting Tudor Grace lace scarf. It's 2 weeks in to school, only 4 and a half left until the summer. I also really need to organise our possible trip to France bouldering over Easter or it just won't happen!
In the mean time have a pair of socks! Normal service will return shortly....
