MIA

Last week I have been best friends with


and cold tablets and cough mixture

This week I have been best friends with this cover (still snuffly but feeling ok but shamefully I shared my lurgy with Hubz so he has been off work)


During elections I have for a while done 'election day' but this time I asked to do some after work for the rest of the week.  We live in such a democratic country and I must say I do enjoy learning about the process.

As a result not much stitching has been done.....

… but my first sock is growing and soon I will decrease for the toes


In the garden the zygo cacti have been flowering....

I love this bright pink colour



These pale pale pink aren't as dramatic but I think they are even more beautiful.... so soft and dreamy 


Righto, Gotto Go.... get back to that sock knitting.  I do hope you can avoid colds, coughs, flu …...

Hope you'll get better soon. It always takes me forever to get better. Love your beautiful flowers. Wow! That hot pink is really HOT! ;^)

Those kinds of lingering colds and coughs are just so awful! I'm sorry you've been suffering and now your Hubby is, too. For me, the worst part is how raw my nose and eyelids get from wiping them with the tissues :( Here's to a better week ahead, with plenty of stitching and a good dose of democracy :)

Colds and sore throats are lingering on here too, shared by hubby and a visitor the other weekend. Hope you are both feeling much better now. Your sock is going really well. Your cactus are both beautiful colours.

Haven't worked an election for many years......I remember very long days and no going home until all the votes have been counted, no matter how long it took. Not much fun having the flu, glad you are shaking it off!

Lin said...

Good to hear you are feeling better. Very nice neat heel turn Fiona - the sock is looking great. xx

Karen S said...

Colds are not a good way to spend time. Good that you are well on the way back now. But good that you did manage some knitting.
Take care.

Maria said...

Sew good you are feeling better and hope hubs is too now..
Great sock progress and very pretty flowering cactus.
Wonder if mine will be flowering when I get home?

Janice said...

I’m glad you are starting to feel better and hope hubby does soon too. Your zygo cactus are looking lovely. I’m just hoping that mine haven’t been frosted while we have been away.
