Weekend again


Well I know strange things happen but really why do they have to happen last night when I am watching a video, The TV just went off and I cannot get it to work again, The video is still going but cannot get the TV back on, I have changed the batteries in the hand set and that's working so think it must be something to do with Sky, I wish I knew about these things but hay ho. If its still like this tomorrow I will get someone out, if I use the other hand set I can get non sky channels. Just asked a neighbour and sky is working so now am at a loss. 

believe it or not the TV came back all on its own.Lol 

I have started knitting hats and scarves for a friend who  makes up boxes for  people at Christmas, This is the first one,
