A Little Trip

Today sees me winging my way North to Sheffield for a few days to finally visit my new grandson. The animals and house are sorted thanks to my daughter who is back from uni for the summer and an assortment of neighbours who will keep an eye out to make sure she is ok and help out if needed. I am typing this on the train on a cute little keyboard that attaches to my iPad and connects via bluetooth. It's small, compact and does the job although it might take me a bit longer to write the posts as I seem to be making a whole pile of spelling mistakes because I'm used to a bigger keyboard and things on this miniscule one are in different places. I love train journeys, even though the journey is a long one and although the last 3 times I have been to Sheffield haven't been very happy occasions, I am hoping this time will be different.

I have brought along a little bit of stitching to do on the train if I get bored with people watching, a few hexies and some fabric to stitch all neatly packed into a little quilted liberty bag that I made, my first ever attempt at putting in a zip. I have to say I am quite chuffed with myself. It was easier than I thought it would be. 

I have no idea what this blog post will look like on a normal computer it might look totally weird ...... if it does, I appologise but for the next few days it's the best I can do. As it is I'm having to post in two different formats because one of them won't allow me to add photos from my iPad so I am writing in  one app and posting photos in another ...... heaven knows what it will end up looking like. 

Before I left, I sorted out the house, gave it a good spring clean and cleaned the carpets. The cats, understandably, don't like the carpet cleaner, it's very noisy and all of them dissappear the second I turn it on. All except one of them. Her name is Porridge. She is a sweetie pie who loves to be cuddled but she is also a fiesty little thing at times and when the carpet cleaner is around, she is determined not to let it scare her. As the other cats dissappear to the four corner of the house, Pooka ..... that's her nickname ...... stands her ground :-)   

Cat versus Machine ....... in this case cat won and I had to go around her because she refused ro budge :-)


  1. The post is displaying fine on my computer. I hope you have a fab few days with your grandson & family. x

  2. Oh how lovely to get away for a few days - and to see that gorgeous new grandchild. Lots of cuddles and getting to know him. Lots of photos, as well! I hope you have a wonderful time and come back refreshed and relaxed and ready to take on the world - well,your little bit of it at least.
    Incidentally, your post looks perfectly normal to me, so no worries there. Keep on blogging!
