Today is 15 years since my Dad passed away. I'm not sure why I'm actually remembering that this year, as the day usually passes me by without a thought, until some time after and I realise that I missed it again. Which is odd really, since I remember the events of that day like they happened yesterday, which says something about significant life events I guess, since I find it hard to recall what I did 10 minutes ago most days, let alone what happened on a day 15 years ago LOL Anyway, so I find myself here reflecting on what has happened in those 15 years and wondering whether I'd be where I am right now if he hadn't passed. I don't think so. And I'm very happy with where I've ended up. And that's not to say that it was a good thing at all, but the cliches about death making you more aware of your mortality, etc, etc. Just means that I probably wouldn't have made some decisions that have led me to where I am today if that event hadn't occurred when it did.

And we have an extremely gloomy day weather-wise today to go with what could be a gloomy day in general, so I'm pleased to report that some spring cheer arrived this morning to make the day brighter....

The September installment of the Yarn Collective Soaker Club. I love it. The picture isn't that great, but it's lovely pinks and greens, with a matching green skein and I plan to make a skirty/soaker type thing for F with it.

And this came last week...

The colourway is "Frolic" and it's from The Yarn Cafe (of course!). I plan to make some nice cheerful, springy shorties for F with this one.

And I plan to cast one of these on today. Perfect day to begin something new.
