There are many more I could link to

if I comment on your blog you know I visit regularly.

Nothing new to report on the allotment I did not go last weekend as I had been during the week. John worked Saturday and did not think he would get there on Sunday because of the rain but after lunch the sun came out and off he dashed.

I saw Mousey sitting in the bird feed tray stuffing his face happy as you like.

I have begun Grace's jumper, its a good job I know something about knitting because the 8 row pattern was wrong. There should be a little ridge where there is a knit row
but the pattern said purl so of course that row continued the stocking stitch. If you knit you'll know what I am talking about if you don't then it wont make much sense

It's turned quite chilly here but nowhere near as bad as last year when it hardly got above zero. We don't celebrate hallow e'en although i did find a few witches flitting about down stairs. An interesting point Sting has released a new album of traditional songs and one Soul bread harks back to the origins of trick or treat. centuries ago people would put out bread for the souls of the dead on All hallows eve. During this time there were many poor people with no food. They would knock on the door of the richer people and ask for the bread saying they would pray for the souls of the dead.

Eventually, just like Mothering Sunday and Christmas capitalism took it over and commercialised it.

I have got a bit more one to one tutoring. I really enjoy it. I am giving up Saturday mornings, there is quite a lot of work to do at home unpaid. So why do I think I have sold my soul for money in the bank? If you really know me you will know why!

Thanks for stopping by. It's nearly blogoversary, there may be a very small gift involved

Your allotment looks lovely even though we are into Nov. I have got Clemetis flowering at this time of the year. The weather is so very wierd this year.
Lovely knitting and glad to know that you have some more tutoring to do. Extra ££s do help.
