Fun with Friends

I have 2 fun days out with friends to tell you all about, I hope you are sitting comfortably!
Wednesday Rose & I went to see Family Fortunes being recorded (every so often I go through a phase of applying for tickets and this time I was lucky!)


The lovely (and rather nice looking!) host Vernon Kay even showed the audience photos of his newborn daughter
We saw 2 recordings of the show featuring Sean Maguire Vs Leila Rouass and Vanessa Feltz Vs Lucy Speed
It was a late night but well worth all the laughter (esp between “takes”)
Our tickets came from SRO Audiences if you’re interested in applying for any shows
Today my friend Kelly & I went for our knitting lesson at Prick Your Finger

Prick your finger

Here’s my practice work with a copy of Knitty Gritty I purchased

knitty 152

It was just Kelly & I in our lesson and our teacher was fantastic helping us both learn in our different ways. We were extremely proud when she told us we were great students and had learnt a lot during our session
We both left confident in our new abilities (I have always had problems casting on and our teacher refused to let me leave until I got it!!) and ready to tackle some small knitting projects (scarves probably!!!)
If you want to learn knitting I’d highly recommend giving the girls at Prick Your Finger a call
I hope you have been having fun with friends and family this week
Pin It Now!
