Keeping me happy and busy

A jigsaw, it's a French river era scene and 1000 pieces and is so difficult.  But it is something I can do with only one working arm, and very enjoyable.
Different coloured houses with shutters on a hill over looking the sea. We have completed more than this, but it isn't finished yet, as we have had a week away in beautiful Southwold again.

We had such a lovely time, sunshiny happiness  every day. It was relaxing, I walked, one day 1.2 miles, we ate tasty food, crab was my favourite, I slept well and was woken by the gulls each morning. A perfect summer seaside holiday, our forth this last year!

We will carry on with our jigsaw and I am going to ask for a 1000 piece one for my birthday; I hadn't ever thought of that before. Do any of you complete jigsaws?

At last a finish!!

I don't think I have ever been so long knitting a pair of socks, but at last I've finished these. A slightly longer leg part as they are for my cousin who wears wellies,  when she walks her friend's dog across the fields.
Now to do some crocheting, which is easier with my arm.
Arm news? It's more or less the same I haven't got an appointment to see the surgeon till the end of September, so I just have to wait and see. My patience is running out and although people show sympathy, no one really knows what it is like for me.
I can be a miserable old cow some days, thank God I have such a lovely DH
Happy Days!!
