My Multi Coloured Cardigan
For one reason or another, I woke up Christmas morning feeling a little jaded, to say the least.
We had the eldest daughter and her family staying with us and you can imagine how excited the Grandchildren are on Christmas morning. I couldn’t make it out of bed, not at silly o’clock in the morning to join in with the screams of ‘he’s been!!!!’ No, for me it was a late start, a very late start, arising about lunchtime.
I Missed The Car Race
Ooh, I did feel poorly, but I am pleased to say, as the day wore on, I slowly started to feel better. I was sad to have missed the ‘Scalextricx’ demonstration that the Grandson had received from Father Christmas and the fashion show the Granddaughter had put together to show off her new top and shoes and all the other things that girls of her age love.
Everyone was itching to see me open my presents, especially the one package that felt like it could be a blanket or perhaps a large jumper? ‘Open this one first, Grandad’ said the two young voices that were full of excitement. So I did and there before my very eyes was this beautiful, multi-coloured cardigan complete with rainbow buttons.
I had seen a similar cardigan for sale at an extortionate price back in the summer. That’s when I asked my daughter if she could knit me one for Christmas. That’s her hobby and she’s very good at it. I never expected this though. It’s fabulous and ideal for this cold weather that’s just arrived. People keep asking me to see my multi-coloured cardigan and when am I going to wear it out? I think it’s a bit too good to go to the local pub in, everyone will need to wear sunglasses it’s that bright.
Happy New Year
It’s been a great Christmas for me apart from the blip on Christmas morning and it just leaves me to wish everyone a fantastic 2022.
