He looked up from his newspaper and said: 'Yes dear, I do. You wore that same negligee the night we were married.'
She said, 'Yes, that's right. Do you remember what you said to me that night?'
He nodded and said, 'Yes dear, I still remember.'
'Well, what was it?' she asked.
He was not much in the mood for this, but he sighed and responded, 'Well, honey, as I remember, I said, 'Darling', I'm going to suck the life out of those beautiful breasts and screw your brains out.' '
She giggled and said, 'Yes dear, that's it. That's exactly what you said. So now it's fifty years later, and I'm in the same negligee. What do you have to say tonight?'
He looked her up and down and replied, 'Mission accomplished.'

You lot are going to be soooo sick of hearing about this. PMSL. But I don't care.

And I've also done some knitting for my imminent grandchild. We bought a car seat yesterday and as the weeks go by we'll get a few more things. I've borrowed some knitting patterns from a neighbour, but whether I get to do anything bigger than mitts and bottees remains to be seen. LUCKILY...one of my gorgeous blog readers, Jacky, is going to knit some things, as are Kathy and Marilyn.

This morning I taught myself (again) how to crochet. I used to be able to do this years ago, just squares like the one above but I'd forgotten how to start it off. So, using the wonders of the internet I found a site that teaches you how to do it and this is the result. It's actually a very pretty lemony colour (#12 that I bought in Spain in February), it looks a bit washed out on here. I'm going to try and incorporate some crocheted squares into my patchwork. Needs thinking out some more first though.

The two photos above are from An Alphabet Of Stitches. As you can see I've done the hardanger section, just need to wrap the bars and do the filling stitches. The second photo is a close up of the speciality stitches.
This photo is my progress so far of the bookmark I started. I know exactly who I'm going to give it to when it's finished.

The photo's not that good cos I've got nowhere to lay it out flat, but this is Summer Arches by Bent Creek. My first finish for April, LOL. I have Winter Arches already done (it was done as a RR last year or the year before) and now I just need to get the charts for Spring and Autumn to have the full set.
I haven't heard anything from the place I had an interview at on Friday, so obviously I didn't get that job. Ah well, their loss. I got another one of my books yesterday from Amazon and I'm hoping the other five come tomorrow. There's a fair few things in the one I got yesterday that I quite fancy making...watch this space.
I'm at the job centre again tomorrow morning. No doubt I'll come back with another big pile of vacancies to apply for. I had a phone call from Ian half an hour ago, asking me if I would go and pick him and Mick up from the pub and take them home cos it's snowing. It's a 15 mile drive (or thereabouts) to get to the pub, and they only live about a mile downhill from there, so I told them to sod off and walk. Lazy gits. I know I've got MUG tattooed on my forehead but I'm not THAT much of a mug. Cheeky little bugger!

Secondly, I've been after this book on Amazon for yonks, but they've always been out of stock. Today I decided to ring Borders and see if they had it...AND THEY DID! WOOHOO! So after I'd been to the framers I tootled over to Silver Link and got it. I've also ordered a few other books from Amazon that were on my wish list, but they won't be here till next week.
