The last week has flown.

It has been a quietly busy week.  The days have slid by and every evening I have found some time to knit or crochet.  The last few nights I have reluctantly set down my hook and gone to bed wishing I had more stamina to stay awake to watch the cricket.  My larkspur blanket has kept me company and is slowly growing each day.

My money tin has had daily deposits and now weighs just over 800g.  Some nights dad puts the coins in.  It saddens me while giving him a great deal of pleasure and much to talk about.  When he was quite young he contracted polio.  He spent a lot of time in hospitals and on one extended visit a nun gave him a tin with some coins.  This started an almost life long collecting habit.  On his good days he will talk about some of the things he found over the years.

Both girls have settled into university and college for the last semester of the year.  It is great to see them engrossed in their chosen studies.

Basically that is how my weeks go by.  Domesticity, driving and family stuff.

It certainly does and in a few weeks there may be a huge plan for the money in the tin!

Thank you for encouraging me.
