We started off in Brighton, spending Friday night with Number Two Son. Alexander cooked a wonderful prawn and vegetable curry for us, then we played Articulate with his partner and another house-mate, and watched Angels and Demons (at least, everyone else watched it, I fell asleep part way through - a reflection on the film perhaps?) Luckily, Alexander loved his waistcoat and wore it on Saturday.

Saturday saw us taking Alexander shopping first of all, then visiting some other friends in Brighton for coffee, before heading up the road to my sister-in-law's house for the family party. At some point we dropped Alexander at the station, as he was working that evening. Whilst we were in the town we popped into a new quilt shop, The Wandering Line, that has recently opened. It's a lovely shop, but I didn't buy anything, even though Christopher offered to treat me. Am I completely mad?
On Sunday morning Christopher went for a run with his old running club, whilst I went shopping; I actually managed to find some trousers that fitted in Marks and Spencer. After the run we met up with Number One Son for lunch, before heading home.
And what's happened during this week? Well, Christopher and I have joined a new singing group that had its first meeting last week. That was great fun and we're really looking forward to the next session. My yoga class went ahead, the first two sessions of this term having been cancelled because of the snow. And I did a whole load of housework, including cleaning all the windows.
On the sewing front? Well, I've finished the blocks for the quilts for the twin beds in our guest room. They've had to be put on one side whilst I make a lap quilt for my sister-in-law, for her birthday in March. I'm part way through making the blocks for that. And I've made a table runner.
The Quilt Show is running a contest for a Spring table runner, and I was inspired to make my own design, rather than following a pattern. It's the first time I've done that and I'm rather pleased with the result. It's all made with scraps, which is equally satisfying.

But now, I'm planning to have a rest, and perhaps a nap, after two very poor night's sleep.
