The dreaded bindweed

I think CK means 'regular' as in the American vernacular ... 'ordinary' 'bog standard' etc.  Don't think she's referring to regularity as in timed intervals.

Pat, hopefully the shop assistant will see to that .... they usually do .... in my experience the John Lewis habidashery  staff are excellent, without exception ... and a woolly hat shouldn't really take much yarn should it? Fingers crossed anyway

Good morning to the rest of you .... I've got an exciting morning ahead .... not only is Wonky on here way here, but apparently son is popping in on his way to collect some equipment from Lincolnshire  

A bit like buses, my offsprung 

OH is being very brave ... he is going to John Lewis to choose and buy a knitting pattern and yarn for me to knit requested woolly hats for son ... I've written everything I can think of down, and told him to find one of the nice knitting experts in John Lewis and tell her (probably but not necessarily a her) that she can ring me to check if need be.

I'm nearly at the end of Wonky's jumper and I'll go stir crazy if I'm stuck here  with limited mobility and no knitting    Wish OH luck 

Hope Mrs Pdoc is soon feeling much better
