Uncertainty.........

Hoping to get back to normal after a very stressful month. My youngest son has just gone off to University.  He did not make the grades for his first choice University so taking his insurance choice we did not think there would be a problem. Turn back the clock to the end of August when he informed me he did not get offered any of the accommodation he'd chosen. So after a week of waiting the University offered him a room, sharing a bunk bed and an hour walk from the University all for the pricey sum of £95 per week.  Needless to say we turned it down for obvious reasons.  Consequently, we have spent the last 3 weeks trying to get decent accommodation close to the University. After a week staying in a Hostel he found somewhere to live.  Finally last weekend he moved into a very nice private flat sharing with 3 others, 10 minutes walk from the University.  We moved him and  his belongings into a lovely, cosy homely flat.  I think he is going to be very happy, and I am so relieved.  Not the best of starts to University life.
Keeping me sane and occupied during this time has been Crochet. I find it relaxing sitting at night with my wool and hook. I have just finished a second round cushion and have fallen for popcorn stitch, I just love it....
 Smaller projects using popcorn stitch are also taking shape too, don't want to mention the C word........

but it is obvious... i hope.

At least he's settled now and hopefully it will be a good fit for him. Yes, C is coming, but I'd sure like to keep the snow away. I'm definitely not ready for snow.
