Hello it's me!!

Well its certainly been a long time since I've been here. It's been a difficult few years, which I won't go into. I've got a lot of catching up to do and some re designing. My biggest news is that Liz's Knitting is no longer just the name of my blog, it's the name of my business!!

This is the link to my business facebook page. Liz's Knitting

I set up in January this year and I've got so much to share already!!

Well I'm probably talking to myself now as I'm sure that my followers have long since given up on me.

I'll say bye for now but I'll be back xx

Knitting mojo

I seem to have lost mine. I hardly seem to be picking up my needles these days. Having been a knitter for many years, these have been occasions when I am not as busy knitting but I am in a real lull at the moment.

Does this happen to anyone else? What do you do?

It worked!!

Thank goodness i thought to look for an app. Our pc has been playing up for a few weeks. It finally broke about a week ago. Luckily we have internet on our phones. I tried to blog but it was really difficult with the lay out and my text kept disappearing. Then it wouldn't let me write anymore. So hopefully this will get me back to blog land!


I've downloaded an app so i can blog easier using my phone. Just testing to see if it works. Hope so cos it will be easier.

Absent blogger

Don't know why I haven't been blogging for the last few months. I keep meaning too but then I do something else. Not been reading the blogs I follow either so I've missed out on everyone's news. I must catch up!!

I've been busy knitting. Busy getting ready for the start of my next Uni course which starts on 25th Jan. My diet is going really well, I've lost 1st 11.5lbs in 20 weeks. For some reason I seem really focused this time...just need to keep it up and stick to Slimming World classes!!

Since before Christmas either Darren or myself have had a cold. I started with a chest infection and like a game of tennis it has been going to and fro with us...back to my turn again! I have asthma, which is generally only affected by colds and bad weather.

So at the moment wheezy me has been using it alot...til yesterday morning....1 puff came out (rather pathetically) then no more....AHHHH!!!!!! I was at work. Rang GP. I couldn't request a repeat prescription until 2pm. Ok...but I need it now....tried from 2-2.30...finally got through. It'll be ready Tues. NOOOO!!!!! I explained that its asthma medication and I've run out. Sorted. She'll ask the GP for an emergency prescription. Ring back at 5.30. Rang back. Not done. Ring at 6. Not done. 6.15. Not done. They close at 6.30. 6.25 not done. Gave me the phone number for the pharmacy, assuring me that if the GP writes one, they will drop it at the pharmacy next door which shuts at 7pm. 6.40 rang pharmacy, no prescriptions have been delivered yet. 6.45 they know some are coming but not there yet. I say to pharmacist I will come down just in case. I get there at 7pm, lights being turned off.....but thank goodness my prescription is there!!!! Sod paying first I rip out the inhaler and absorb it's goodness!!!!

What a night I had....a day of no inhaler really affected me....I lost count of the amount I used. I'll be needing a new one soon!!!!

Hope everyone is having a good start to 2012! x

I don't see the problem

Oh how very true!!!! I did have 2 wardrobes when I was for clothes the other for yarn. I had to reluctantly give up my yarn wardrobe when 'he' moved in with me!!!

Now finally after years of stacker boxes for my yarn - I have a wall to wall, ceiling to floor storage unit!!!!!!

Think I'm going to get a bit obsessed with Youtube vids today...I'll try not to post anymore although the TMNT one with Raphael knitting might be found here soon!!!


Fraggles Knitting!!!!

Oh my goodness!!  I don't remember this when I watched Fraggle Rock!! Do you???
