I'm a bit late with my day 7 post and a bit disappointed that this was the case. I had hoped to keep up with the week and post to the schedule. Unfortuantely the traffic on the A55 had other ideas. We spent the weekend with Mr NM's mum and his Nana in Llangefni, Anglesey and whilst our journey there was uneventful our journey back took 4 hours with a lot of that spent sitting going nowhere. As a result by the time I got home I was so tired I couldn't be bothered to even switch my laptop on, never mind construct a blog post. I didn't even knit!
Speaking of knitting, my knitting time and any rituals or routines relating to it I did have a good think about this. I read through the suggestions of what I might do but it didn't really fit. I don't listen to specific music or do anything particular in preparation for my knitting time, I just knit. I will knit just about anywhere, on the bus, on trains, in the doctor or dentists waiting room, at home, at my mum's home, at my in-laws home. I'm not fussy. I don't need silence to knit, there are some tricky patterns which much be followed carefully in which case I don't do anything at the same time as knitting but background noise doesn’t disturb me. Sadly I do pretty much all of the driving so knitting in the car is not an option, perhaps in future should Mr NM become a more confident driver.
Most of my knitting takes place whilst watching TV. Mr NM and I watch A LOT of TV and A LOT of films. There are rules though so I suppose there is some routine. I'm "allowed" to knit when watching lighthearted comedies and certain dramas but knitting during serious TV that requires undivided attention is NOT ALLOWED. If I dare to knit when watching a TV series such as Boardwalk Empire or a big film such as Inception I get the glare of death from Mr NM. I suppose I could still knit but I am happy with the rules and I couldn't possibly knit when watching True Blood because I might miss a moment of Alexander Skarsgård's screen time and that just wouldn't do.
Thank you Eskimimi for organising this again, I only read last year but this year it has been a lot of fun to take part and also to read some blogs I hadn't read before and to think differently about my own blogging. It has been great fun.
