Be Careful What You Wish For


More stormy weather had the five of us scuttling off to bed after my second night shift of three.
By 1pm, the wind had woken most of us to a restless mass and we resembled a nest of baby blackbirds waiting for their mom to return with food until I couldn't bare it any longer and I took the younger dogs for a walk in the old Churchyard.
The new Postman was standing at the cottage gate when we returned as the driving rain started.
He was afraid to walk into the garden as Winnie was Standing guard in the doorway, and passed me a small parcel to me before running back to his van.
The parcel contained a hand knitted bobble hat.
It was just like the one I described earlier this week. The one I coveted from the amiable gay smoking guy on the railway line.
And it fitted perfectly.
Thank you Lee it was a lovely gesture.
I banked up the fire, ate some baby bananas and drank tea as the wind and rain increased
And I'm typing this , in bed
Still with my bobble hat on

    1. I never believed that i will be happy again after much frustration. I have been rejected by my husband after Six(6) years of marriage just because he met another woman and he left me and the kids to suffer. One day when i was reading through the web i stumbled at a post on how chief dr lucky the great spell caster has helped people to restore broken marriages and relationships and curing of diseases. I emailed him immediately to help my situation via: chiefdrlucky@gmail.com He told me not to worry that my husband will return to me begging and shedding tears of forgiveness. I am so happy that my husband actually returned to me in 48 hours after i obeyed the words and instructions of chief dr lucky. contact him today in any of your problems for a lasting solution via: chiefdrlucky@gmail.com or call/whats app +2348132777335 Website: http://chiefdrluckysolutionhome.website2.me/

  8. Our weather her in the Detroit area has been so mild it feels like winter never arrived. It is alarming. I am predicting a very rainy spring. Which again would not be good for the area.

    What a delightful and cozy hat Lee made for you! Love the colors and pom-pom.

    I spy a fat ceramic pony on the mantel where it's safe from sweet Dorothy's temper tantrums!

    Hugs!

  11. Your place looks cozy enough.

  12. Hope you are high and dry! I have a hat I sometimes wear to bed when the wind is whistling through the window frames. The bobble disappeared ages ago, but the hat stays 'cause it is a nice cotton yarn.

  15. What a beautiful hat!

    ReplyDelete
  16. You don't want to lose that hat John in a gust of wind,perhaps it would be an idea to thread some contrasting cord through or laggy-and everyday life is very much like The Wizard of Oz isn't it - scary winds,crashing branches whilst happily walking the dogs "lions,tigers and bears-oh my" x

  19. All you need now are some mittens on a long cord that you can thread through your sleeves.

  20. You wished well. And huge thanks to Lee for making this wish a reality.

  21. What a lovely gift! It looks good on you and apparently it came at a good time with the stormy weather.

    ReplyDelete
  22. What a thoughtful thing for Lee to do! Now YOU can be "the man in the bobble hat" for somebody else ...

    ReplyDelete
  23. A good gift. We are in hats most of the day at the moment, indoors or out. Might even think of nightcaps too, if it gets colder...

    ReplyDelete
  24. Dottie's face says it all!

    How kind of Lee to make it for you.

    ReplyDelete
  25. That yarn in your hat is beautiful! And I love a pompom, so cute.

    ReplyDelete
  26. Nothing like a good hat to keep you warm and toasty!

    ReplyDelete
  27. You may love your new bobble hat, but you can't wear it all day every day. Your brain will overheat.

    ReplyDelete
  28. I almost feel like I'm there.

    ReplyDelete
  29. Such awful weather for you. Hope the beautiful knit hat helps. SG wears those pom-pom toppers well. I look like a dork... but I’d wear that hat without it.
