Meet Ted!

My, how time flies when the men in your life are at home all day! I've had J moaning and groaning on the sofa under a duvet for two days and M building stud walls and making lots of mess.

J has had a terrible cold/flu type thing. He valiantly carried on last week not wanting to miss any sporting stuff and then promptly collapsed on Sunday. Such a shame his blanket wasn't finished!

J is back at school today and M is away working too. Such glorious peace. Just me, the dog and the cat. I think I will be continuing yesterday's pattern of sitting down and crocheting away, since I pulled a muscle in my lower back and it blinking hurts. Ouch! Note to self, do not move heavy sideboards on your own.

I started the second half of J's blanket but also felt the need to break from monotonous crochet and rustle up a new friend...meet Ted! All teddies in our house seem to end up being called Ted, with the exception of Mr Chubbs of course. I'm quite pleased with Ted and find him a lot less creepy than the cats. His head seemed ridiculously large until the other body parts were added and then he seemed ok. The pattern is free from Jenny and Teddy. I will try and add a link via my blog list since it is a faff to open up my old netbook and create a link that way. (Blogger on iPad is limited).

Yes, Ted has met with royal approval. The teenager spoke and was nice about him. Shock horror!
