Having a sore back was a good lesson in just enjoying being where I am. It is not easy to let go of all the 'going to's and 'must do's and 'have to's, but I have got better at it.
One week on the road and I have not even reached Christchurch yet. I stopped at the Ashford Mill House cafe and sat in the sun with a cup of tea. And this Noro yarn -- I couldn't resist.
The weaving area is being renovated, so the shop was in a bit of a state. I missed the sofa that was piled with knitted cushions and throws.
