:: the sky was absolutely beautiful, even if it was chilly sitting on the west side of the stadium after the coldest August night for years, but the athletics was even better. This from someone who never watches sport and cheered like a loon. Interesting.
:: my mum had her second cataract operation, got the bus home, said how wonderful the hospital was and is glad it's all over and she'll be able to see well again. Her grandfather lived to be over 90 and was blind.
:: I used a spindle for the first time, not very well at all but still had a lovely time learning in my favourite wool shop
:: Some of the courgettes were made into the first of this year's glutney, with plums this time. Much prettier. Only another ton to go.
:: my bike got two new tyres so perhaps there will be less punctures now and I got some smarter panniers too.
The world is my lobster.
