I've been tagged

So I've been tagged by Jagienka. I'll post that in a mo.

I've finished the February Lady Sweater body, I'm on the first sleeve now. Loving it immensely. Can't wait till it's finished!

I'm looking forward to starting a sock from Cookie A's book, Sock Innovation. I'll have a browse on Ravelry to see what ones others have knit before I pick my fave.
I'm also itching to do another bit of sewing. I'd love to make my Mam a new apron.

Speaking of my Mam, things have deteriorated quite a bit in the last couple of weeks. My poor Dad got all upset last Saturday and told me he can't cope anymore. I felt so bad. I try my best to help, but I'm sure I could be doing more. Maybe if I work a 4 day week or something? I've rung the health board to see about getting a home help. The public health nurse is coming next Thursday to assess them, but she has already told me there's no money for one. Great. So I rang my "brother" to ask if he would be willing to help out with the cost and he flat out said no. The prick. I can't believe he refused. I was in floods of tears to be honest, he's never around, I do everything for them and he won't even give me a few quid to help. That's the end of our relationship to be honest. He was never that great before, but how can anyone refuse to help look after their parents? It's beyond me.

Sorry about the brother and the whole situation. Hope your parents chop him out of the will... then you'll get what he owes you one day...

Perhaps the nurse will have a brilliant idea. She must have seen this sort of thing before.

Now go get some pretty yarn and start a sock!

Have you had the onion bhajis from the lady that sells them at Blackrock market? Maybe she's no longer there, but we used to buy them from her whenever we stopped off in Blackrock. Instead of the anemic, sad-looking patties I'm used to, she had lovely, round, tennis ball-sized ones, with bits of onion all sticking out...gosh they were good.
