So February is almost over, things are definitely improving with long sessions tidying the garden, lighter nights and exceptionally high temperatures. I've noticed a difference in me too, I've had a sudden attack of niceness.
It really began after I won that lovely yarn from Josiekitten and made the scarf. JK contacted me to ask if I would like some more in different colours and after some discussion during which she refused to take any payment, I received another and larger squashy parcel.I have agreed to make a donation to our local Cats Protection League in lieu of payment and also sent a little thank you to JK which has arrived safely.I've made a couple of pairs of socks to give as presents, I've knitted a couple more of the purple cowls again for presents and I've received some white dk from Pam to make something for her next grandchild expected soon. I sent off a little cardigan to Amelia which she was pleased with even if the sleeves are a little short, that girl is growing far too quickly. Please note no yarn has been purchased (recently) to make any of these items, all material used was from my stash.We've had friends round for dinner, I met the working girls for a lunch and spent time with a neighbour who is unwell and off work. I also received a couple of boxes of chocolates, Lindor are my absolute favourites and the chocky covered walnuts are delicious and different.
So what a good start to the year, I can't guarantee that I will continue to be so pleasant, one can but try, let's hope it's not just the leap year effect or there'll be a long wait till it happens again.
