    Do we have any elite knitters? I'm going to be volunteering at a Secret Scarf event later in the year in conjunction with the Barons Court Project (details are on their Facebook page). If anyone fancies knitting a scarf, any colour, any design, I'll be happy to pass it on. I'm not a great knitter but I'm giving it a go

    Little tale to share which I hope will make you smile.

    Dd1 and ds3 fiancee are best friends since little school, so when they realised there was a wedding shop sale it was understandable they would go to Bangor and have a look together. What was not expected was ds2 oh who was dressed up and in heels to while both girls where trying on dresses to have her emergency beeper go of, she was needed for a rescue. . she goes I can't go in a dress and heels so nicks dd1 jeans. Hoody and trainers and legs it to the car leaving dd1 stranded in Bangor in a slightly to tight dress and heels. That she could hardly walk in, and then she gets propositioned by an elder man.who thought she was looking for business
