so very, very late.
I decided a week ago that I would like to make my mum a blanket for her birthday, which is a good thought, however her birthday is this Saturday 7th…..ahh yes I do like a challenge.
I have hooked up 112 circles, it has taken me 6 days and so far have made 5 squares that will be crocheted together, I have another 25 to go, then the edging……think it will be a little late.Oh my, look at all the ends, luckily I won’t be using all of the circles, it’s not going to be a huge blanket, just one to throw over her knees in winter.
This is as far as I got last night
It was 43 deg here on Monday, it was disgusting, hot winds, burning sun, stifling house, I took my granddaughter to see Puss In Boots, it was so nice in the picture theatre and she loved the movie….’Nanna, this is my best favourite movie’ awww, she is so sweet. We called into my Aunties on the way home and she was all good manners ‘yes please and thank you’ I was very proud of her.
Tuesday it was only 35deg, it felt cool compared to Monday, so I cleaned the house, took all the decorations down, believe me when I tell you, Christmas decs make you feel hot and stuffy. They are so much more suited to a cold climate, they make you feel all warm and cosy. Yesterday started off cold with thunder and lightning and pelting rain, then cleared up and the sun came out and it got to 24 deg, so I took my Miss Read book outside and sat in the sun and got a good dose of Vit D and a suntan.
The hot has not stopped me from crocheting, I put a wet towel around my ankles and feet and have a fan blowing on them, it keeps my body cool so I can crochet my little heart out…..yay!!!!! Don’t you love the diversity of temps over a couple of days here in Australia????? I would be ever so grateful if it never got beyond 35 deg tho’ (please weather god)
I know it is 5 days after New Years, however I want to wish one and all a year full of abundance in all ways. I know some of my bloggy friends are doing it tough with health issues or lack of income, moving, parenting etc. so I hope this year you find peace with your situations and resolution.
I am back at work on Monday 9th, and will be working an extra day – that’s 3 days now, I am soooooooo happy and soooooo grateful. Oh and the two dresses that I showed you…..they looked horrid on me, so I sent them packing hehe. I did find one yesterday
Thank you for hanging out with me this past year, it has meant the world to me, I have some very dear blog friends, your generosity and support for each other is heartwarming.
You are champions and I love you all.
Oh and thank you to Helen, she awarded me an award, go check out her blog, I know you will love it. I will blog about that next time xo
