Someone vandalised the tap at the dam. I don't think this is actual dammed water that has been pouring out all night, I'm pretty sure it's bore water, but it is a waste of water nevertheless. Harki and Peri had a lovely romp in the water and the small stream that formed at the bottom of the slope. When I got home I did the citizenly thing and rang up to try to report the damage. Five. It took me Five phone calls until I found someone who might do something about it. I checked yesterday and the tap was fixed: they had wedged it on sideways, better than nothing I suppose. I feel like I am some old codger complaining about it, but aren't we short of water, you know, just a bit????
Yesterday was the Knitting Coven and I was late as I was poorly, but I had a lovely time and we touched other peoples' wool and knitting and exchanged books too!! I picked up my Doctor Who books and the Tamora Pierce in town as well. I also picked up what I still refer to as a record!! It is a CD of course, I still think of them as a records, in the same way as I still 'tape' on the DVD Recorder!!! I heard a song on the radio and it brought back memories and I had to have a copy. It only took a week to come all the way from the USA and it only cost $20!! A real bargain though I expect I have such geeky music taste that no-one else wants it!!!
I have been making some little Christmas decorations. I plan to attach them to ribbons and make a mini-hanging. I have lost a star: this is nothing unusual!! My Gingerbread House Cutters are about to be put to good use and my new Gingerbread Person Cutter too. It is very cool, because when you press down on the dough, the underside of the cutter makes impressions on the top for the face and the buttons down the front!!!
Poor little Harki has been plagued by allergies again. Her poor little eyes and ears were red and sore. Doctor Tim put ointment in her eyes and drops in her ears and now she is as bright as a button. She has her eye ointment 3 times a day and is ever so brave!! She does get a treat and I think that helps.
