We bought ourselves a small laptop last week, for using when we're on our travels. Trouble is, it doesn't have a case and looks a bit vulnerable naked. So this morning, I've made it a sleeve.
I have to admit, it's a bit WI-ish and smacks of a tea cosy. Could hardly be described as funky, unlike these but it will do until I find something better.
This brings to mind a WI story. Several people were gathered for an area meeting about health and safety and the chap leading the discussion described how he had gone to a WI office to do a risk assessment and had found - shock, horror - a fire door held open with a brick. This was bad enough, but believe it or not, said he, the brick had a tapestry cover! Sharp intakes of breath all round as eyes swivelled to try to identify the guilty party. No problem, for someone stood up to have her say - how dare he say such things about that doorstop? Didn't he know the difference between tapestry and needlepoint?!
I keep my blog as a personal record of what I'm up to, which might be seen as working towards "An elegant sufficiency, content, retirement, rural quiet, friendship, books, ease and alternate labour, useful life". I'm certainly not there yet. There is quite some way to go!
