Clingy. Peri is clingy because yesterday Harki went off bravely to the Hospital and donated a bag of blood. She stayed for 2 hours and they shaved off some of her hair, but it is of little consequence compared to the good she was able to do. Peri sat next to me, touching me for the whole 2 hours Harki was away, apart from the times she went off to look for Harki. She even took to the bottle!!!Despite all my reassurance, in the end I took her with me in the car to fetch Harki and she even went into the Hospital just to check she hadn't missed out on something good!! Harki was ever so well behaved and she is such a good girl!!! Can you tell I am besotted with The Labradors??? Again. Constantly.....
Easter Madness, as instigated by AmyP , has been progressing, if slowly. I have completed a few little madnesses and bought some supplies for further madness. They are not in particularly Easter colours, nor bunny colours really, but there will be children and playing involved so I wanted them to be a bit more user friendly than white and pink felt would be. I also succumbed to the BSODL's $2 a metre fabric sale and picked up some striped patterned material for a skirt and some poplin/lycra print to make a top. It cost $9 in all so I was very pleased.
Today was Crazy Day. Why did MrsDrWho and I meet for brunch on Crazy Day? I don't know. Perhaps we are crazy. But I did find a bargain, a Labrador calendar, at the bookshop I frequent (for frequent, read almost live at!!) It was reduced in price and I decided to buy it but when I went to pay, the owner quietly said that I should just pop it in my bag as a gift. How lovely is that? It made me quite teary.
The Big Bad Baby Blanket is nearing completion. I have 4 more rows and then the moss stitch border. I am very happy!! The weather has been all 'climate changy' again, it was 31*C at the other end of the island yesterday, and 26*C here. Mind you, we are expecting some snow in the highlands and it was -2*C at Liawenee. Liawenee is notoriously cold, it rates a mention on the radio from the Bureau of Meteorology almost every day. It is an institution!! At least we had some rain last night, I hope we have more. As a consequence of the warm weather the 4B is all I have been knitting. I should mention that I am also up to episode 19 of The West Wing Season 1, as if that would have anything to do with it. Amanda asked if I had been alonging with my Upside down Baudelaire: No. And No. We are indeed the worst alongers around. Once the 4B is finished I must along a lot!!!
