The EU and a tennis dishcloth

Wonder how long it will take us to leave the EU. According to this newspaper article, it could be 2020!

A 3 month period of 'calm' has been declared to allow the conservative government to elect a new leader, since David Cameron has decided to step down. A strange thing to do in the circumstances, as he, above anybody else, knows about negotiating with the EU member states.

I also seem to remember the hullabaloo from them, when Labour did the same thing after Tony Blair stepped down.

It will be days and days of more Brexit talk and I for one, am heartily sick of it already.

So then, on to the dishcloth. It isn't a dishcloth shaped like a racquet or even with a racquet on it. I decided to start crocheting it during Queens tennis, every time Andy was on, out it would come during sit down breaks.

Some days I forgot but it was completed just as he won:
I know, I talk about such interesting topis don't I. Today has also seen the winter quilt airing on the washing line before being put away. No doubt, it will go cold again overnight but there is a light blanket nearby just in case.

Have a lovely weekend everyone.

    1. We were told about 2 years as quite a lot of 'agreements' have to be sorted.

  3. I would far rather read about your dish cloth than listen to the rehash of the vote. What ever happens it will come about regardless of all the hot air being generated today.

  5. Well, don't worry about getting sick of it; it has only just started. Those of you who voted to leave will have got what you want but are still grumbling......

    1. I think that would have happened no matter who won, due to all the uncertainty about what would have happened either way. Interesting if very irritating weeks to come, luckily we can opt not to listen to most of it.

  6. Dish cloths are a nice break from the Brex-pocalypse!

    Whatever will be will be - some bad, some good - and good god won't we get to here a lot about it for most of the next decade. I'm almost nostalgic for last week's wall to wall football coverage.
