Five On Friday - Not a Bad Week

It's been a while, but really there's not been much of interest to blog about. Truth be told there still isn't but let's face it, life isn't rock n roll most of the time.  Anyway, I thought I should pitch up and post something in case you all forget about me, so here's the good bits about my week thus far.  Don't worry it'll be a quick post so I don't bore the pants off you! 

In my last post I mentioned the cat I was fostering.  Poor Sandy is still with me as he had an adverse reaction to his thyroid medication and I had to rush him to the vet where he stayed for several days.  I'm happy to report that he is much improved now and I brought him 'home' on Tuesday.  I was delighted to see him settle back in after firstly having a good old sniff around his litter tray, it obviously passed muster as he promptly left a large deposit! 

Also this week I was pleased to finish my random coloured stash-busting blanket for the local hospice, which I delivered yesterday.  

On Wednesday I went shopping for a shalwar kameez, also known as a Punjabi suit, (so the proprietor of the shop informed me) and was chuffed to find one at half price that fits me like a glove. I've been invited to a colleague's Walima next month and Indian/Pakistani dress is de rigueur. Here's a sneak peek but I'll save the big reveal for when I'm wearing some slap!

Also purchased were these inexpensive earrings to accessorize the outfit.

Yesterday saw my weekly Knit & Natter group. Irritatingly, work interferes with my attendance but I like to go when I can.  This group of talented ladies are great company and the topics of conversation would shock you...oh yeah.  Amongst other things, R told us about the risqué words that her friend's daughter had had tattooed on her bum.  Even I gasped and nothing much shocks me. Here we all are stitching and bitching.

The final thing that put a smile on my face this week was learning that French political drama Spin was returning to UK TV screens next week. (Les hommes de l'ombre in French) I watched the first two series last year and was hooked.  Anyone else watched it?

Hope you've had a good week too.
