Change of Plans

Last week we were planning to watch Star Trek and being a secret Trekkie, I was really looking forward to it!! So we went to the O2 and Jaxs went to buy the tickets. When the film started I noticed the name 'Christian Bale'...hmmm......what is he doing in Star Trek?? Then it dawned on me that my husband had bought the wrong tickets, so we ended up watching Terminator 4 instead. The film was ok, too much action for my liking, the only thing that was good about it was Christian Bale and Sam Worthington. Hee hee hee! No seriously, their acting was good as well as their looks.

Then on Saturday we were planning on accompanying my Dad to buy a new car. However, my Dad's old car was not being itself (I think it is breaking down as it is more than 25 years old) and our car was left at my Inlaws, so no car. Instead we caught the bus to Borough Market. Here are some photos:
At Borough Market we were handed a card from the Crafting Creatures about their Crafternoon that day. My Rascal and I decided to go to the Crafternoon, and we really enjoyed ourselves. My daughter made aPom Pom I tried to do some knitting, there were also felt creature making and cross stitching. We also enjoyed some cake, tea and a live acoustic band playing some great music. This was their second Crafternoon, so it will be interesting to find out when their next one will be.
We then went to the Tate Modern for some exercise........have a look:

Bubble Border Cardigan and Chocolate Brownies

As Jo, from 'Today we are....' , would put it, here is my FFP:
Yay, I've finally finished my Rascal's cardigan, yep, the one I keep going on about...hee hee hee. She tried it on and it fits, the only problem is that it is so hot here. Hopefully the weather will cool down here in London. I started this project because I wanted to learn the basic of garment knitting, such as pocket, collars, and the bubble border. It looks complicated, but is actually really easy. The finishing is not that good, so I'm looking for a finishing technique workshop.

After knitting the cardigan I treated myself to a bowl of chocolate brownies with yogurt and fruit sauce. Yum. I used to eat this when I was carrying my Rascal. It has lots of calcium and iron and no I'm not preggers. I just felt like eating this again. Yummy......
