The Buns and I wanted a home day today. Perfectly cosy eating, watching films, cuddles and crochet. For a while now they've wanted to see E.T. so I made sure I got it for half-term. I have to admit I cried even though I knew E.T. would be alright in the end and then I welled up again when he asked Elliott to Come and he replied Stay.
Despite the soggy eyes I managed to finish the last strip of my Dottie Blanket. Hopefully I'll finish the edging tonight and then I will have officially actually finished something I've made for us. The first not just started and then put aside thing in quite a while.
The rest of the afternoon went in a whirl of putting up ghostie and spider banners and then just fiddling with stuff.
Just what we needed. A day of not much at all. It felt good and we needed it.
I really enjoyed reading your different views on Halloween by the way. I worried I sounded like I was being a sourpuss about Halloween and that wasn't what I meant at all, I really do enjoy it. I love all the markers in the year and the excuses for another celebration. We always have our own family party and daft games to match. At the moment the Bun's are busy deciding between being cats or witches. Alfie has his own red devil suit hanging ready.
