Yesterday was Himself's birthday and as part of the celebrations we went to folky concert where the band was billed as Gypsy Folk n Roll and they were! We saw Holy Moly and the Crackers. We must have danced for most of their gig - oophff, my crook knee hasn't forgiven me and going up and down stairs has been, well let me put it this way, a bit of a trial - however, it was worth it!
We had a brilliant time! I danced like a demon** and loved loved loved it! It was just what we needed. Today has been a lot quieter.....
Devon Apple cake - very successfully and I peeled and chopped a box load of windfalls. Our freezer is full to bursting now with apples ready for fruit pies over winter. There is a good lot of self satisfaction when we use 'food for free'.
*walking like a tin soldier? Well, after succumbing to the delights of the cake we felt the need for a walk and my knee would not bend comfortably so I ended up with a jerky gait that felt quite choppy and stilted - made me think of those old tin soldiers that you could wind up and they would totter off on stiff unyielding legs.
****Dancing like a demon? Well... I love dancing and when given a chance will 'bop like a gud 'un' which, when the boys were younger they didn't mind and would often join in....however, now they are teenagers, the thought of their mother whirling and jigging on the dance floor to folk music was bordering on embarrassing. Hey ho.
Any hoo, enough waffle for now. I'll share my latest knitting news with you tomorrow as well as the pictures of our walk today.
