My social life took its toll by Saturday and I stayed in bed till after 2pm.
- Our Trivia team won second prize and we have a voucher for $50 to use this Tuesday: Chicken Parmas all round!!!
- Sewing was lovely and I finished my felt creations. (see below)
- Knitting in the Pub was fabulous as the Pub was air conditioned. It was so hot out in the real world that I almost expired. All The Labradors had to play in the paddle pool and lie in front of Mr Coolie.
- Wee Jock's mum's birthday dinner was great. The company was excellent and the food very tasty.
Auntie Dutch finally received her presents and I was able to visit Uncle Dutch, Auntie and Uncle Electric and Baby Electric at the same time!! I made Auntie Dutch a K9 handbag- that's K9 from Doctor Who. I used the Doctor Who pattern book, but I slightly enlarged the bag and made a stiff plastic lining covered with poplin to give it a sharp shape. I even had a proper dog tag engraved with his name!!! She was very pleased.
I also finished her babushkas from the Felties book, which was a gift for her too. Rather sneaky of me. I made one larger, one the proper size and the smaller one is a brooch!!
Harki and Peri had a wonderful walk in the cool rain this morning. We have been walking early, before I realise I am up and before it is hot, so we are often there before 8am(that is early for us) The rain has been light but constant and you can see it has collected on the grasses and spider webs.
The grass is always greener for Lorelai Gilmore: at the end of our walk is a gate and every time we have to walk right up to the gate, and then she likes to sneak around it and sit forlornly on the other side. If only I was nice and would let her walk in the forbidden area.
Smarties have new user friendly colours so I bought a packet just to check them out. Not too bad really, better than the 100s and 1000s which I think look insipid and a bit dirty.
Tomorrow we are having a day at home, I have to pop to the Library, but other than that I shall sleep and then cook something delicious to eat!!! The Labradors will be able to play all day and have lots of attention. Lorelai Gilmore is at the Terrible Teenage Stage and is a bit big for her boots. Thank goodness Harki and especially Peri are such lovely girls.
