To add to the techie misery, my computer has been playing up, it really does have a mind of it's own, I think it's haunted. It does anything it wants without my permission and without my touching anything. i.e. in the middle of an email, it will send it - so I have to send another one explaining, rather pathetically, that it was the computer, not me.
The font size will jump from tiny to enormous while my fingers are nowhere near the keyboard.
The screen freezes regularly and the only way to fix it is to go into Task Manager and temporarily remove some of the apps.
I've had Word reinstalled because the original one had expired (I think this is a con!) I've also had Norton installed, but while it seems to be detecting virus's and problems and removing them, it's slowed the whole system down a lot.
Anyway, lets move on to something a bit more cheerful, I've got more stuff for Etsy here :
Fingerless gloves/texting gloves, I like these, I hope someone else will like them enough to buy them.
More fingerless gloves with matching leg warmers, knitted in blackberry stitch, it makes a lovely chunky warm fabric.
Guess what ? more fingerless gloves, and here are some matching legwarmers
These can be worn long, pulled up, or slouchty style. I challenge anyone to feel depressed wearing these bright colours.
These are the recycled legwarmers I mentioned a couple of posts ago, they used to be socks but got too worn in the foot area to keep on darning. I've been wearing these with my walking boots, and they stop the boots from rubbing the back of my ankles.
I'm knitting a lot lately, because my sewing machine is on permanent 'loan' to my darling grandaughter who is doing a textile design course at college. Here is a picture she made for me, applique style, I love it, so when she is a famous textile designer, I can say I have one of her earlier pieces !
So here are a few more pictures taken over the Christmas period in my home :
I love this antique housekeepers cupboard, it's soooo useful with it's large interior and 6 drawers at the bottom.
The fireplace area.
This is an antique butter churn which I've had for ages and love it. See the retro table lamp on the right ? one just like it (but cream shades) regularly appears in Eastenders !
A sweet little wall unit hanging in my tiny hallway.
I haven't been bargain shopping for a while because my cupboards are well stocked, but I couldn't resist these :
These are enormous sized tins of peas and carrots at just £1 a tin, I had to get them. Pretend you can't see the half bottle of wine in the background OK ?
Now I have to list some stuff on Etsy - I HATE doing that - it's such a long winded affair, which probably explains why I don't have too much stuff listed, but I have to make an effort, after all I won't sell anything if no one knows it's there will I ?
