Well, MrsDrWho and I are from the hicks, which is like WhoopWhoop or The Black Stump. Our island is pretty much as far away from TV and Films as is possible. And yet.....
Lockhart Brownlie and The Six Degrees of Separation:
He's not a cute five year old dressed as a scarecrow, dancing in Assembly at school, in MrsDrWho's class anymore. He's cool and trendy and dances with Katy Perry and Kate Hudson, and acts in True Blood. He has a Kevin Bacon Number of 2. Two. That means MrsDrWho and I have a Kevin Bacon Number of 3. A Nathan Fillion, Richard Dean Anderson, Bruce Boxleitner and William Shatner Numbers of 3!!! It takes just so little to amuse me.
I have needed amusing as I had a long and boring recuperation from the virus and the ensuing worry it caused. Usually when I have had a little blogging break it is because I am having a burst of crafting activity. Not so much this time.Thanks for the kind enquiries. I've just been lying on the couch or going to bed most days.
We've made another two Craftsy blocks. MrsDrWho didn't make the paper piecing windmill one as life is too short and spatial awareness a pain in her neck.
I've also finished three pairs of socks: My Cup of Tea socks, The Green Style socks and the teeny tiny When in Rome socks for the nice lady at the Wool shop. Roam Fusion is a new sock wool and she asked if would I knit a small pair of socks for her and tell her what I thought of the wool. It is two plies, twisted loosely together, and much easier to knit than I thought. It is firm and not soft, but I think it would wear well. I like the colours too.
Poor Peri has had a bad dose of Hay Fever. We saw Dr Marion at the vet and she prescribed human hay fever tablets and I picked up some steroid cream for her poor little nose and lips. She rubbed them so hard that the black came off and she made her lips bleed. She is much better now and loves to have her face wiped with baby wipes every time she comes back inside from Nature.
Peri and Gilly have been very happy to lie on the bed or nap on the couch and watch Apple TV with me. Yes, I managed to hook up my new Apple TV and I am knee deep in shows and films to watch when you are poorly!!!
The car went to be fixed and it is all shiny and new again. I am really happy with the result and also with the excellent service I received at F T Guy. My car was making an unusual sound when I picked it up and without a quibble, or making me feel a bother, they took it to the Hyundai people to have it checked out next day. At no cost to me. Very impressive. I took them a cake. No-one had ever baked them a cake before!!
Although a walk at the dam is always preferable. It's ears flapping all round!!
And now it is time for another nap. We have been for a walk and then I went to Leukaemia Support Group and the supermarket. That's enough for today. I plan to put on my pyjamas, make a cup of tea and have a rest. I shall post again soon and there will definitely be Friday Food this week!!
