It's the 40th Anniversary of the UK release of this album. I remember the olden days of records, in fact, I still say record, and I also 'tape' with my hard drive on the DVD recorder!!! I am out of the Ark!!! I had just started Prep at school, it was the year of the big bushfires, and we didn't have this record at home. My mum did like The Beatles and I am on tape somewhere, reel to reel, singing 'She loves you, Yeah Yeah Yeah' in my very, very early years!!! It was the start of my love of The Beatles. I'm not a 'fan' in the true fanatical sense, and as referenced in my last post, I was born too late: in my teens, everyone at school liked, well, whomever it was who was popular, but I liked The Beatles and Paul McCartney and Wings and so on. I was a musical outcast!!!
Bonely speaking, I had a very nice meeting with the people from Melbourne who flew over for a Clinic this week. I will be taking The Cyclosporin again,and we all wait with huge anticipation to see what will happen.
There has been little knitting. I have been a little tired recovering from my boogelly cold, but I am on the home stretch of the Professor Plum socks: only about 20 rows to go, and then the toe!! AmandaJ and I are still having a Baudelaire-along so I will start Greenery Snicket #2 next. I have some secret sewing to do, and I also have some secret crocheting as well!! No pictures of that. Everyone is always waxing lyrical about the quick delivery of their Bendigo wool, but I ordered on their website on Tuesday night and alas, no wool has appeared thus far. It seems it will take a whole week. There is little or no chance I can knit MrsDrWho (Currently on a personal guided tour of China with her mum. They are at The Wall now) a cardigan before the 20th of June. Or is there??? Oh, and for AmandaJ again, photographic proof that The Coven exists!! Here we all are. Can you see my spot, with the lovely bag Donna made me and the teapot???
I have 2 new patterns. I'm not sure which one to make first. I have ventured into the big bad world of Widgets and added a poll to my right side bar. I value your opinion, well, until the 6th of June anyway: my D-Day!! Should I make a stretchy T-shirt type top in some nice lime boucle: there's a wrap around version and a knotted front type? Or, should I make a woven fabric tunic top, with gathering at the bust: there can be full sleeves or sleeves with a frill at the bottom? It would be green too, of course. I am in a quandary.
Harki has been to The Vet for her annual Vaccination and check up. As her hips are boogelly now, she should lose 5kg, so both of The Labradors are on a diet. She has some ointment for FlippyFloppy Ear as well. Harki had taken to having a little plaintive cry every now and again in the evening, whereupon I pat her and give her a cuddle. Dr Tim thinks she is crying Wolf, and just wants a pat and is not in pain or unhappy. This seems to be the case. I have been ignoring her and in only 2 days she has stopped. Peri and Harki are very excited because there is a lot of water in the creek, a lot of chilly water surrounded by mud. This means that even this morning when the temperature was 3*C (37*F) they both jumped in with no hesitation. I would prefer they got wet at the start of the walk and then dried off a bit, they would prefer to cool off at the end and put water everywhere in the back of the car.
Everyone was so kind and complimentary about my new vest!! Thank you!! I've added an 'About" page with a contact if anyone want to use it!! I don't know how to configure The Typepad so I can email people who comment, so I've done the next best thing: you can email me!!
