Mike retired last friday...woohoo he is very excited and enjoying the need NOT to get up early to go to work each day. Mind you he still wakes up early:)
I bought him some lovely long stem red roses and a hellium filled balloon to mark the occasion. I also made him a card.
He wished to give a lady he worked with recently a little owl like Seamus (see earlier post). Smaller than Seamus was easy I chose a 4ply wool instead of 8ply and used size 12 (2.75mm) needles. He turned out to be about 6cm tall and a fraction wider.
Very cute we thought.
