Looks like the hot sunny weather is back with us again. I've had a lovely quiet day so far, all my chores are up to date and I've had some time sitting in the garden listening to my audio book.
Yesterday I managed to finish stitching July's calendar girl and will have a go at fully finishing her tomorrow.
I knitted five new dishcloths last week. I'm a fairly new convert to knitted dishcloths and have developed a bit of an obsession with them
Yes, there are a couple of Christmas ones in there too 🎄🎅
I've wanted to knit the Dandelion cardigan for quite a while now so today I took the plunge and cast on. Yarn is Drops Nord from stash
I haven't heard anything from work regarding my job. I had to go into a meeting last Friday which didn't really tell me anymore. There was another new position on offer which at first looked promising but I have since found out that it is more specialized role for which I do not have the qualifications. The role of PA / Admin is no longer an option either because they have changed the goal posts and decided that the person who takes on this role will need to have I.T qualifications to assist in the day to day I.T issues . That leaves the Service Coordinator position which to be honest I don't want. So, It looks very much like I will be made redundant unless by some miracle they find another role I can fill. I'm not holding my breath.
On a more pleasant note, I went for a lovely walk last week, up to the Wychbury Obelisk. This is another local to me walk and there are several paths you can take to get to the top of Wychbury Hill, this time I took the public footpath not far from our house.
The Obelisk Is 84 feet high was built in 1747 under the instruction of Lord Littleton.
The graffiti, Who put Bella in the Witch Elm first appeared on the obelisk in the 1970's and refers to a local murder mystery from the 1940's
Apparently on 18th April 1943 four local lads were poaching or bird-nesting in Hagley wood and they came upon a skull in a hollowed out trunk of a wych elm tree. The younger of the lads confessed the find to his parents and the police were told. An investigation was launched but apart from discovering that the remains were female the body was not identified.
The views from the top of the hill are fabulous, you can see for miles and is well worth the climb
See you again soon
