Tipsy Tuesday


Tipsy Tuesday here and I've not had a drop to drink all day, but I have to say I'm gasping for a cup of tea! Here's the sleeve so far - it's sped along thanks to the summer holidays, but as I'm now back at work and the cake orders are rushing in, knitting time is very limited. I love everything about this knitting and am so excited. Hope it will fit!
Well it was the first day back at school so we had to cope with all the tears and tantrums! I had a particularly distraught child at the end of playtime (he's 4) who just didn't want to go back in to school. I tried everything and in the end picked him up and cuddled him - instant relief, he put his head on my shoulder and stopped crying straight away, snuggling into my neck. Poor little soul. It was only after a few minutes that I realised why he was so upset - he'd wet himself and all this wee had gone through his clothes and onto me. So once I sorted him out, I went home to get changed myself! Oh I love my job, but these first few days in Reception are very trying.

Hmmm. Ok, maybe my first day back wasn't as bad as I thought .... at least no one weed on me!

Good luck with school and getting tipsy .... I mean, WITH Tipsy!

Tipsy is looking absolutely lovely, I am even tempted by Fairisle myself!

aww...you lovely lady...wish you had been my teacher at school, I found it all very traumatic too! I want that cardigan now! I think I need to find that pattern, it might be just what I need to make using my yarn I got from Italy, which is sitting waiting patiently in a pretty basket for the right pattern!

Just this morning as I was delivering a fresh supply of extra shorts (we're potty-training) I was wondering if Dennis's teachers keep themselves an extra set clothes handy...

ps: if Tipsy is too big for you, you know right where to send it : )
