I've been clearing overgrown parts of the garden in the last few days, as well as undertaking the annual summer holiday cleaning frenzy (Susie Homemaker I am not, but I try...) and finishing my Sockapalooza socks. Whilst pulling back some ivy yesterday, I overturned the unused wormery, sloshed rainwater everywhere and promptly came face to face with my first ever newt. How exciting!
Also exciting is the positive response the Lone Star State socks have received. After careful consideration (which took all of, oooh, 30 seconds), I will share the pattern in due course. I'm going away for a few days and I would like my Sockapalooza Pal to get hers first, so keep an eye out over the next two or three weeks, for an update.
