I am stating here and now that Paul Newman was hot when he was young, as was Young Frank and Young Elvis. Oh and Young David Niven and Gregory Peck was very interesting too. There are more, but you get the idea. I'll stop now.
I haven't seen all of Paul Newman's films but recently I watched Cat on a Hot Tin Roofand he was pretty gorgeous. As well as being hot, he was also a good man and I am sad that he died. He lived a long and fulfilled happy life, so I expect he couldn't ask for more. I swear (actually I don't but you know what I mean) he was The Best Thing in Message in a Bottle. Much, much, better than Kevin.
I have a lot of books and I have been purchasing more books and magazines and then making a collage. There are not 545 pictures this time though!!! You can see A is for Apron and the two Softies books, and then the new Donna Hay and AWW Christmas cookbooks, my new Vintage patterns from Unravelled which are just wonderful and finally some magazines. I also have three new Doctor Who books ready to pick up.
Then there are these three on lay-by at the Book shop as well. On special to boot.
There has been some wool acquisition too. Some extra green Rainbow sock wool from Katt. She dyed it especially for me and it will be socks for MrsDrWho for Christmas. I know I am still making the bamboo socks and the TARDIS socks have yet to leave the ball, but I will get there. Then there was the secret surprise wool that came with the Vintage magazines: it's Happy Spider's Canopy. I have some more of her wool too and it is lovely and green. I was very spoiled by Unravelled and I may have even helped her with her decluttering!!
I haven't been doing much this week, I had a headache yesterday so I missed out on Sewing group. Harki and Peri looked after me though. Auntie Electric took some very good proper photographer-type pictures of them. She made me a disc and I can print them out and keep them!!! I have some green photo frames that need filling. I think they look even more gorgeous in B&W. I love the way their paws are entwined. And yes, that's me giving Harki and Peri a ruffle-up.
In medical news I had my new port flushed today and it worked!! I had it poked without any local. It did hurt but we decided I was brave enough: I didn't even squeal as I threatened to do. Look away now because here comes a more medical bit: when she pulled back on the syringe, blood came out of my port just as it was always supposed too. We all gave a cheer. That means I can have all my blood tests so easily and I can save my one vein for a rainy day!!
Tomorrow I am going out to dinner at Wee Jock's Mum and Dad's house and I am taking Sticky Date Pudding with Toffee Sauce. I am going to make some lovely Lemon Slice for MrsDrWho. The GardyGardeners gave me a whole bag of very lemony lemons so I am ready to make lemon curd and maybe some syrup cake as well. I do like lemon.
I have a little sewing to do now, and I am going to use my Suffolk Puff maker to see how it works. That should be either a lot of fun, or not!!!
* Not This Butch Cassidy I hasten to add. I loved this when I was young though!!!
And wouldn't you know it, the new 39 Clues challenge is a flyng one. I am doomed I tell you, doomed!!!
