Auntie Mim's vintage week
|He's quiet. That's a good start.|
I am conceding that autumn is upon us – as a spring person, I'm not appreciating how dark and damp everything has become all of a sudden – and have got my woolly skirts and thick tights out again. For the past few years I've enjoyed being able to bring out the autumn clothes, they've been something of a consolation for the change of seasons, but things really aren't fitting right and so they're making me even glummer.
|Two day's lunches there. I love apples for lunch.|
UK TV Gold (a cable/satellite channel over here) has an Ealing Comedy season starting on the 18th of September. Richard E Grant is hosting a three-part documentary on Ealing Studios, and a number of the films will be show too. I was pleased to see a few of the lesser-broadcast films on the schedule. I've got the major classics on DVD, but a lot of the others will be new to me. That's those dreary, wet Sundays taken care of. Well, the bits when Poldark isn't on. *Lecherous face*
The other thing I like doing when it's dreary and wet is my embroidery. It's so much faster than knitting. The bit I've done so far isn't perfect, but it's nothing to be ashamed of, and every craft takes practice. I'd been knitting regularly for two years before managing to make something I was really proud of, so it'll be some time before my embroidery gets good. I'm going to stick with it. And, indeed, keep on with my jumper - I'm now on the sleeves, and should get it finished soon as with the weather as it is, I'll be wanting to wear it within a few weeks.

How's your past week been? As horribly rainy where you are? I hope you're getting your fill of delicious apples.
