Rain?

Yes, its still raining, I am not complaining but DB is......he cannot get out into the garden, it is forecast to clear, but we know hoe good the forecasting is don't we???

I am not bothered about the rain, we need it so badly.

I spent yesterday afternoon layering up the delectable mountain mats I made, have quilted two of them using embroidery stitches on the machine, I darned in 72 thread ends last night, do not want them coming undone. I hope to get a couple more done today, will see how it goes. I had forgotten I had made the mats, so the grandmothers fan ones are on hold. I might not make them after all but go on the do the christmas tree hangings.

The tablet I ordered for DB will be delivered this morning, something else I will have to grapple with to set it up. It will be easier for him to manage then the digital reader on his lap top.

We will both get new books from the library van when it comes on Monday, but they rarely last us the full month and the choice is very limited. DB asked me to look for Quintin Jardine books, two he has not read. They were not available through the library, I ended up buying second hand copies for him, he will pay for them from his pocket money. We both enjoy the books about Bob Skinner, not sure if QJ will write any more now BS has retired.

Two more mats quilted and the ends darned in, I have one to go. Sorted out the mess on the bed in the sewing room, all the fabric has been put away, I have also moved things around a bit and now have all my threads close to my machine, I can reach them from my chair.

DB's tablet arrived and I have partially set it up, I have to find out how to change the time from Mexico to UK. He has loaded two books to read and also the forty thieves game he likes to play.

B has gone in to see P apparently he has had a fall, he was going for an XRay on his leg this morning. 

Supper bacon fritatta with new potato's, green beans and sweetcorn. No rasps DB has not been out to pick today, maybe tomorrow.
