Good morning, or afternoon 🙂 Im a little late today…not feeling too great…have my reflux problem back so its back to the Quacks for me today *sighs* Plus I’m taking The Hubster to the dentist (I’m sitting in a dentist waiting room as I type!). Its all go here you know 😉
Today is Y day on the A-Z Challenge, so you know what that means…one more day and we’re done…awwwww…before you know it its all over 😦
My random word generator gave me the word Yarn for today and as soon as I saw the word I knew exactly what I was gunna write about…
I made my way over to where Alex was perched, waving on one of those plastic orange seats like we had at school. Placing my bag on the chair I took off my coat.
“I can’t believe how busy it is!” I searched the room for someone I recognised, praying that I wouldn’t lock eyes with a neighbour.
“Told ya.” Alex smiled.
I took out my knitting, half of a primrose yellow jumper.
“Ooooo, that’s a lovely shade.” Alex reached over and stroked the sleeve that I was working on. “Shall I get us some coffee’s?”
I nodded and watched Alex walk across the room to a table set out for refreshments. There appeared to be piles of cup cakes.
Grinning like a 5 year old Alex returned with a tray of coffee and a selection of bright pink cakes. “I thought I’d get us some cake. You have to have cake at Stitch and Bitch, it’s compulsory.”
After I’d whiped the last piece of strawberry flavoured icing from my chin we began. Alex was far quicker with the needles than I was, working on a cashmere twin set in a gorgeous shade of lilac. Needles clattered all around me and occasionally, a hoot of laughter. The 2 hour session went so quick. I was shocked when a woman called out that it was time to pack up.
Outside in the car park I shook Alex’s hand. “Nice one Alex, I really enjoyed that. Thanks for inviting me.”
“That’s ok Dave.” Alex zipped up his motorbike jacket.
As I got in my car I called “See you at Rugby on Saturday!”
He he he 😉
