that long since my last post, yes it sure has been.
I has been a busy girl, doing this and that, rushing here and there. Have started my extra day at work (yay) looked after a sick girl, gone back to my Dance School job, etc. Have progressed a little more with my ripple blanket I am half way through my 41st row, prob almost half way there.Progress on my mums blanket is still at a stand still, I haven’t received my yarn as yet. We did have a holiday on Thursday (Australia Day) so maybe that has held it up a little??? It was posted from the UK on the 11th Jan, fingers crossed I get it this week.
We have had quite warm weather 30 – 37 deg most days, when Kaila was sick it was cold, my heating had broken down and we really could have done with some warmth for her, blankets, jumpers, thick socks were the order of the day for her. I decided to take the opportunity of the cool and attempt to knit some mitts whilst the weather was being kind.
Ummmm, yes….I am happy with the left one, although it isn’t finished yet (pinky colors) the right one, not sure what happened there, it is very loose on my hand even tho I did the same amount of stitches, and the rib is shorter ! I am going to knit another one, I have knitted them in Noro, I have three more pairs to knit, the kids have put in their orders!!
I had lunch with a couple of friends that I haven’t caught up with in an age a few weeks ago, after lunch whilst I was walking back to my car I had to go past a Charity shop and look what caught my eye in the window
Yesterday I had a friend come over for lunch, had a lovely time chatting, catching up on each others news, then in the afternoon I took my granddaughter to the ‘opening’ of a refurbished/renovated hardware store (Bunnings if you know of it) they had face painting and a jumping castle and photos with Dora the Explorer, sausages in bread and fairy floss. It was all free except the sausage in bread. Belle was so excited, we had to line up for ages in each line for each activity. We arrived at 5pm and left at 7pm and it took all that time to do the above things.
She was so well behaved, we caught up with my cousin and her little girl who is two weeks younger than Belle, so they were happy chatting and playing together whilst standing in the lines. I was disappointed tho’, the picture with Dora didn’t turn out.
The lady that was doing the face painting did a fantastic job, here is Belle as a rabbit
Pity you can’t see the glitter sprinkled over her nose and cheeks. She chattered and danced around the whole time, when we got in the car I asked her if she wanted to go to my place or back to her other nanna’s. She wanted to go back to her other nanna’s to show her cousin her face. Off we went, she was still happy and chatting, then silence…. she had fallen asleep mid sentence, funny little thing. At 9pm they had fire works, I was able to see most of it from my front door step, it was beautiful, I love fire works but do feel sorry for the animals who get scared.
Well it is cup of coffee time and a bit more ripple, I have the fan blowing on me to keep me cool.
