a blog with no camera/ photos and city parking.

This is why I have not been blogging, we still have no camera. And kids are very hard to take photos of with a phone camera.
So sorry for my absence. My sewign machine and I have been taking a little break and my knitting needles are up and running, which is rewarding, but not quite as quickly, especially with my knitting.
So I have been yarn shopping, went into Clegs in the city and didn't buy any fabric, also went to Lincraft without spending a cent!

Actually have a story to tell about city driving. I could not find a parking spot for longer than 30min. So I ran into Clegs and ran out again. Of course you cant just put more money in as they now check that, and you are also not allowed to just move the car forward, you have to move to a different section.
So moved after Clegs and went into Lincraft.
Moved again and went into the new Morris and Sons!
Didn't quite finish my shopping so moved again and then realised I was back in the same parking as I was during Lincraft, so moved again (yes you are reading right)
Went back into Morris and Sons, ummed, arred, touched, drooled, stood in the cue and changed my mind again.
Finally made up my mind and got some Noro, when I looked at my watch my parking was up, I bolted up the hill towards my car.
Looked ahead of me and there was a parking inspector!
Looked again there were 2 parking inspectors!!
Looked at my car....
the parking inspector was talking to a lady, giving directions.
I jumped into my car and drove off as fast as I could!

PHEW did I get away with that by the skin of my teeth!!

LOL - love the story and the lucky excape - thank heavens for that lady wanting directions I say.

Looking forward to seeing the yarn purchases when you get hold of a camera.
