Georgie, I have your address, but Melinda, I need yours – please email me and next week I’ll get something nice away to you both!
Thanks everyone for your lovely comments on both my 100th blogpost and for your birthday wishes! You are all very kind! We went out for dinner last night with children at the local pub and, apart from a decided willingness on my part to swap either or both children for a puppy by the end of the night, we had a nice time!
We’re off for a long weekend to Hobart tomorrow, an operation which requires the advanced logistical skills and roughly the same amount of gear used by the 5th brigade when invading Iraq. In a couple of months we’re invading – sorry, Freudian slip there – ummm – visiting Canberra, via Echuca and Bendigo and Rutherglen and Wangaratta – wine and wool – Hey! Who does the trip planning for these holidays anyway? And the two and a half week trip will need almost exactly the same amount of stuff as the 4 day trip. Gone are the days when we used to throw a couple of things into an over night bag and take off with no preparation whatsoever!
There has been knitting happening.
I have finished the first Vog On and am doing the gusset of the second, and am up to the heel flap of the first Noro spiralling rib sock. I’m trying to organise things so I’ve got fairly straight and mindless knitting to do on the 3 hour drive in the car tomorrow – I prefer not to be picking up stitches to create gussets in a moving vehicle – one DPN always seems to fling itself loose during the process and end up under the seats in a position where it is impossible to retrieve until the car has come to a complete standstill!
We seem to be planning to spend most of the time catching up with friends we haven’t seen for ages, but I have rather sneakily organised to slip off to Salamanca Market with the Knightly Knitter, followed by an SnB. This is while our respective husbands mind our collective children!
It’s the first step in my master plan for world domination, folks, leaving the kids with Dad!
Talk to you again after the weekend folks – and will have a pile of blogs to catch up with on Tuesday!
