Thanks to the passage of a little time and some very kind words, I have been able to stop obsesssing about my car being damaged. I think I was just shocked at how mean people could be, and then happy to remember they aren't!!! No-one was hurt, cars can be fixed. And I had a really good sleep and lots of sweet tea!!!
Why are Peri and Gilly looking so alert and interested?
Because there was a party for the football final next door. While I was out, between rain storms, and even when I came home, they were at the party until it was dark. Desperately hoping for treats, there were seaweed rice crackers and pats, but no sausages!!!
MrsDrWho and I always brunch and shop when the AFL Grand Final is in progress and I bought a new pair of shoes. They are not green per se, they are a teal or dark aqua colour, but they match some of my clothes and they were only $50. I've scuffed up the soles and they are quite comfortable. I used the camera's timer to take these and it's dark, so the colour is not very true.
I spotted two more pairs of green shoes in the posh shop, but although I love them both and they fit well, I am probably not going to buy them. MrsDrWho said they both looked fine, especially the be-flowered sandal.
I thought about the colours I wear in warmer weather:
And while they may possibly match the pear material, I'm not convinced I should pay $140 for sandals I don't really love. I'm confident enough to hold out for a brighter green, maybe a lime or emerald. Am I foolish?
The terrible weather - teeming rain, electrical storms, gale force winds - ensured that I finished the first My Cup of Tea sock. It fits reasonably well and you can see how the gusset is formed by the sole increases. I do like that there is a heel flap and turn, as these suit my foot better than a short row heel. Still not my favourite though. I learned Jeny's Surprisingly Stretchy Cast Off. It is surprisingly stretchy!!
I've started the second sock and am halfway through the gusset increases. I want to finish my socks in October by knitting at night while I watch TV, because in the daytime I want to sew. I need to make dresses from the material I bought, so when the weather is hot I have something to wear. I don't really do casual very well, I do sensible skirt and top, or dress. Casual looks like I'm wearing a floppy sack I've decided. I don't seem to really fit into any of the 'shapes' I read about, it's usually my legs that let me down. They are never shapely and slim!!! I think that I need more fitted dresses, skirts and tops and they just aren't casual. Still, it gives me a plan and a goal. I'd like to make two dresses in October, all being well. If I make two from the same pattern, then it should be easier too.
And now I have a cold, hay fever or cat allergy. I am sneezing, my nose is stuffed up and my eyes itch. It could be any or all!! I'm going to catch up on the TV news and then we will have an early night.
