Another new pair of socks. 8 days from start to finish, mainly on the school cricket tour.

When the fact you commute by bike seems a poor choice. Where are my waterproofs? 🚲 🌧️

Managing to avoid buying yarn I don't need in the sales (well apart from the 100g of sock yarn that was delivered last week), but I am buying some more knitting needles. πŸ˜ƒ

One Christmas sock complete... Deadline: Christmas Eve... Might just manage this.

It's been a while since I've cycled in that temperature. Slowly warming up now I'm home.

*Stops countdown timer* And it hasn't started raining yet.

Looks like I'll be playing beat the rain this morning. Can I get to work before the rain starts? *Starts countdown clock*

Look, OK, you can't start Christmas festivities in early November because if you do that then Christmas lasts two months. That's a sixth of the time. Any given day is more likely to be Christmas than Wednesday. That's not special.

The email you should never have sent... Anyway 26 crochet poppies later... πŸ˜‰

Turns out most people want a large poppy. So I've made 3 more to meet the demand at work. A total donation of about Β£40 to the Royal British Legion from the staff crochet club.
And if you don't have a staff crochet club you don't know what you are missing. πŸ˜‰

When you mark a piece of work named "Mine", and wonder which student thought to write that... Then realise it is your solutions!!!

When the arrival of the cleaners means you can put off marking for another few hours.

Things I don't really understand... People will happily drive 25 minutes to commute to work, but if the commute to work is a 25 minute walk or 10 minute cycle or 7 minute bus ride they still choose to drive the 3 minutes with just them in the car.
