It went as quickly as it came. The whole snow storm lasted all of 10 minutes. The biggest worry for locals and all other coastal areas on the East of the country was the tidal surge predicted. That too thankfully was not as bad as predicted. The change of wind direction stopped what could have caused havoc and severe flooding problems for some. The Environmental Agency organised a recorded message to all those living in coastal villages to stay away from promenades and coastal walks and warned of the dangers. It was amazing then to see on the local news how many youngsters could be seen on Skegness beach awaiting the onset of the surge predicted at high tide. It was such a worry, had the tidal surge been as bad as first thought those youngsters could have been in real danger, even losing their lives.
The packing and sorting of the craft room has begun in earnest. I have been quite shocked at the quantity of fabrics, yarns and equipment I have collected over the years. The buttons will probably take a whole truck to relocate. Decisions, decisions what to take and what to pass on. I keep having to walk away and then go back as more and more things are unearthed. It has highlighted the fact that I am a craft hoarder, I knew that I was but the facts now speak for themselves. Evidence is now plain to see. A bigger job than I had anticipated...
On a lighter note, progress has been made on the crochet throw, albeit slower than usual. I have only been working on this in the evening, packing and sorting are now priorities. I have almost completed the border I just need to decide how to finish it all off.
What are you working on at the moment?
Well I have had a break from the packing, I need to get back to it. I think I may make a start on the wardrobes, they will be so much easier to sort out. Who am I kidding?????
See you soon.
