Anyhoo, I laid out the things I needed (took about an hour to find the crochet hook)
I decided to mark up the little packet of squares I bought a couple of weeks ago just in case I didn't feel like the crochet.
And then I sat back down again. A quick phone call to my friend ("don't tell me who won the Men's Tennis Final" I said, I have it taped for tomorrow - "oh it was great" she said, "Roger Federer won" - heyho.... back to the crochet)
The trouble is I can't do something for just 15 minutes. Once I pick it up I can't put it down until I'm either too stiff to sit or falling asleep.
Upshot is, the time is now 6.30pm on Monday night and I'm crocheted out.
In celebration of Wimbledon I made strawberry and cream cupcakes this week. I pureed and sieved half a dozen strawberries and mixed it into the cake batter. I keep a tablespoon back for the buttercream and added some fresh cream to that too.
So, after a weekend of playing hooky I better get some ironing done tonight just to stop me feeling too guilty. It's going to be a long day tomorrow - I think we have patients in from 9am until 9pm. Glad we don't do that every day. 9pm is my bedtime.
