granny blankets, home grown veg & wellies

Not a very original title for Sunday but here are some things I've been doing today (other than the normal washing and ironing) No sun today - so I can crack on with my granny blanket. No. 1 is almost finished (pic 3) with just the last row of the border to complete and no 2 is growing fast and I'm on row 30. It's been far too hot to do any of the blanket but today its cool enough :-)

Guide dogs - I support them

Guide dog owner Lynette with guide dog Pippa

Me and My Guide Dog, Weds 3 July, ITV 8pm: don’t miss it!
We are into our second year supporting Guide Dogs and our current puppy is called Olivia and before her was Taylor.

So I wanted to make sure you didn't miss Me and My  Guide Dog on ITV tomorrow, Wednesday 3 July, at 8pm.

In this moving and fascinating programme, six guide dog owners tell the amazing stories of their life-changing partnerships. Follow them on their journey to independence and freedom.
And please tell everyone you know to watch. You know the incredible difference a guide dog makes – let’s make sure everyone else does too.
Here are the two puppies we've supported in the past 18 months, we donate just £10 per month and it really does help.
