In fact, it was several weeks ago, but I've been a bad blogger, and a good Raveler instead, so I haven't quite got round to doing any updating - tsk! This is Crayford dog track, which proved to be an entertaining night out for John, me, and many of the regulars from our local pub. Didn't make enough money to retire on, but at least our winnings more or less covered our costs, so a cheap evening out as well!
In other news, there has been knitting, but I have no photos yet. I've just completed the Li'l Red Riding Hoodie from Jennifer Stafford's "DomiKnitrix" book for Emily, which I'm very pleased with (and the book is pretty good too!). I highly recommend this book - most unusually for what appears to be a beginner's book, it's highly technical - proper shaping, matched increases and decreases, short rowing, good making up - I thought it very impressive indeed! Go and buy it immediately!
James got his A-Level results last Thursday, and despite missing one of the grades needed, King's College in London confirmed his place, so he's all set to start there in September 2008. A great load off our minds!
And now we're off to France for a couple of weeks on a camp-site near Perigueux in the Dordogne, and will be back in September. I'm hoping we'll get a chance to go to Lascaux, and maybe fit in a couple of wool-shops as well ... there is supposed to be an Anny Blatt (ooh!) somewhere in the area, as well as the usual Phildar suspects - yay for holidays! See you all in September.
