The first day of Summer!!! We've just had quite a violent rainy, windy storm. It's quite cool, so we're having the kind of Summer I like so far. There have been things 'going on' at the Casa 2paw, so we're all a bit hit and miss at the moment.......bear with us. That's bear, not bare!!!! Somehow sticking my fingers in my ears, closing my eyes tightly and going Lalalalalala is just not working!!!
There has been knitting. Now I can't show you the actual knitting, but look!!! The wool!!!! I think you can tell straight away that this is for someone else!! Perhaps I'm knitting a giant Jaffa - and that's a Jaffa, not a Jaffa!!! These would be entirely the wrong colours for Teal'c!!!
I have a new top, it's green and I would take a photo of it except I am wearing it. I love it especially as it was a super bargain bought with the change in the bottom of my purse!!! MrsDrWho and I had surprise afternoon tea. MrsDrWho had a new mobile. It does texting with real spaces instead of + signs!! It has enough thinking power to have organised the first Moon Landings!!! It is a boon. She rang after school and we afternoon tea-d and then shopped for a little while. The Labradors are happy recipients of a dozen tennis balls and treats for their hips: glucosamine soaked rawhide chews!!! I would just like to point out that MrsDrWho has pretty much wrecked her chances of ever being MrsSantaClaus now......
I have opened my new Doctor Who books and perused the newest Doctor Who magazine. Sigh! How can I wait all the way till the ABC deigns to show it: June 2007 I expect. I have the Vogue Holiday edition and I am looking forward to the KnitSimple too.
Martha has her Year Of Cakes, which should be said in a booming kind of voice, but MrsDrWho and I have been musing upon this. I think next year I should have a Year Of Australian Baking: a kind of Bake-a-long. I could make something iconically Australian each month, and people could Bake-along with me!!Why should Martha have all the fun. So far I've thought of Lamingtons, ANZACS, Damper, Pumpkin Scones, Pavlova,... what else??? Not that MrsDrWho isn't eagerly anticipating a year of Martha's cakes, because that's what she'll be getting (one hopes) This weekend I am making some Rhubarb and Raspberry Muffins.
Harki and Peri are both very well, Harki is demonstrating that Australia has nothing to fear now the Thorpedo is gone: Harki the Sharki is ready to step up to the edge of the pool!! And Peri is spending quite a lot of her spare time (which is in fact all of her time) pretending to be a lion in Africa. Much lazing in the Sun, but little roaring or prowling!!!
I've been tagged by a fellow Tasmanian, the Lovely Linda of Two Pink Possums!!! She's been having trouble commenting since she's 'Beta-ed' up her Blogger Blog, so has Katie. Similarly I've had trouble in the opposite direction. See how upgrades are here to help us??
