A Nice Red
I needed some help to relax yesterday--what with bathroom dramas and personal dramas on top of a heavy couple of weeks. The renewed water leak in the bathroom/laundry was fixed by lunch time. After resolving to wait until the plumber could come and get me out of trouble, I called a friend who was able to deal with the problem much more promptly. By the time I'd managed my appointments for the day and done a round trip to Werribee where young R is in hospital, it was late and I was tired. I'm not one for a nice glass of wine at the end of the day. Instead, here's a skein of wool-silk handspun which has a similar effect: It's a 60%-40% wool-silk blend plied with merino--the colour is "cabernet"--it's smooth richness will do for me.
