Is it just me or is autumn going by really fast? I know it’s only mid-October and officially autumn will last a while longer, but over the last few days it’s gone cold here and I can sense winter rearing its ugly head already! Oh well, at least the sun’s out today so I won’t have to force myself to go for a walk in the rain like I did yesterday. Anyway, letters…
Dear wrist. I’m not sure why you hurt (although holding the tablet seems to aggravate you so that could be a clue?), but you need to stop it. I have many cards to cross stitch and right now stitching for long stretches hurts!
Dear patterned tights. You know what would be nice? If your patterns actually went all the way up! When the end of my skirt/dress is reached and then there’s a block of plain black (or whatever) before the pattern starts looks really odd! And the dresses I wear aren’t that short… mostly.
Dear autumn leaves. You’re so pretty! I wish you weren’t all falling down already – although the trees in the courtyard outside my flat are still looking rather glorious in yellow and orange.
Dear birds. Now the cold is setting in, we’re planning on buying a feeder for our balcony very soon. I hope you’ll come and visit once we do!
Dear Sherlock. No wonder your seasons are so short – those episodes are long! You’re the reason I got nothing done between making tea and going to bed last night!
Dear old home. Sorry to hear you’ve lost your best Irish pub. Honestly, you move away and everything goes to pot 😉
Right, must get back to work now. Happy Friday and have a great weekend everyone!

That cold really seemed to come out of nowhere and I am so not prepared for it either! Can’t we just have one more week of Indian summer, bitte?
I know, right? Warm weather come baaaack!
I had that wrist thing from my phone, I ended up tying material around it to keep it still. Hope yours gets better!
Glad to hear I’m not the only one! I’ve been rubbing it with deep heat before bed!
I feel like autumn is already on it’s way out! Last week I was happily wearing my autumn fingerless gloves, this week my fingers almost froze to my handelbars cycling home and I’ve had to upgrade to real gloves! Hope your wrist gets better soon 🙂
I haven’t resorted to gloves yet but the scarves are out…
oh my gosh, the Sherlock episodes are basically like mini movies! they are definitely not something you can binge watch in one night lol.
Right? We’re managing one a night. More would be too much!
Which series of Sherlock are you on? I think I might be one behind – had better catch up before it comes back! Totally agreed about autumn – it was really nice here for weeks then I blinked and it’s practically winter!
Just started season 3. I don’t think season 4 is out yet so we’ll be caught up soon. There’s a 2015 Christmas special coming.
I love that it’s tights season!!!! I hope your wrist gets better.
Patterned tights are my favourite ❤
Yes, I hear ya on the tights! I definitely did a ranty blog post on it a few years ago!!! One pair the pattern.ended 1 inch above the knees!!!!
I did buy ONE pair from Whitestuff where it went to the top but then they were too short on my long legs. Sigh.x
1 inch above the knees is ridiculous!
Dear tomorrow’s me: you knew you shouldn’t have had that second glass of wine & it was totally worth it. Although, you do realise you now can’t stitch until after lunch tomorrow 😏 *circle of life*
Haha, it’s always the way isn’t it? Hopefully you enjoyed the wine at least 🙂
Oh no not dreaded RSD in your wrist? Hope it’s better so you can carry on cross stitching – I want to see this finished Christmas card! (Stilll reckon I’m on to something with my Moomin idea!).
Autumn is so pretty! Amazing colours but such a shame that the trees are already bare.
