Whilst burying Skittles we found a rabbit skull. Look at DS’s sad but intent face.
We’ll make a biologist of him yet.
DS decided to put the skull on top of the stones. We went to Ikea yesterday and came back with a fleece baby blanket for Star to snuggle up to in the pod. He is sitting outside just now, looking all lonely.
Sunday we went to Cragside – the Lake is still frozen. The coffee was wonderful (top marks to the National Trust for keeping soya milk). It is still freezing here – It’s school holidays this week and it’s always cold, wet and muddy. Not much fun for the kids. (Or the parents).
The unit is now ready to use. Notice boards are up with a schedule of things to do, I’ve put up paintings and hangings to make it colourful and feel like home. But it is still cramped and its hard to get going again.
I’ve been FME with the Pfaff, I do HATE having a plate over the feed dogs – you hit it with the hoop and it knocks you off course. Why on earth can’t they just add the dropping mechanism? Surely for a machine that costs £600 they could add it in? And, my big moan – I couldn't get it stitching with gold metallic at all.
Can I stamp my foot and scream “I want my Bernina back!”?
Actually, I think I did do this.
