Thank you for all your kind Get Well wishes. I am obviously not quite over whatever it was I had because there was a slight contretemps at The BlackSpot of Doomlight(tm) this afternoon and I had to come home and have a cup of tea and recover. Good thing I've pretty much done all the shopping that MrsDrWho and I need, because I shall be having a little rest from BSODL(tm)
Lorelai Gilmore is wicked but she is also very good. What a conundrum she is. I took her to the dam and I let her off the lead (well I left the lead attached because she can't run far without treading on it!!) At first she wouldn't leave my side, but then I walked away and I called her to Come:
Now, whenever I whistle for her she runs to me wherever I am with such joy!! When she hears this video play she comes too. What a clever girl she is!!
Hark-Parki-Parker-Posey is still pottering along. She still rules the roost and she still likes to play games with her toys and with me. The other day Harki and Peri went off into the bush and were nowhere to be seen when I got to the gate. I called them and Harki came first with her hop-along run and Peri came second, literally flying round the corner at lightning speed!!!
I have been very sporadic in my blog reading, commenting and replying, but I think I am almost up to speed, but without my ears flying up and my tongue hanging out!!
There has been an outing to a fabulous Chinese restaurant where I erred on the side of caution and had steamed dumplings, which believe me was no hardship. I would have ordered them anyway. There was an exchange of gifts involving the Lazy Susan. I think the other diners were very curious about our Lazy Susan use!!
I have had a few Christmas outings, but the one that has taken all our fancies is the Dessert Buffet at the Casino. $14-50 for all you can eat of the delicious desserts and as many cups of tea as you like as well. This is a poor photo, but the tree decoration has an LED light that changes colour!!!So cool!! And there's a decoration, a Rudesheim crystal, a pair of green embroidery scissors and a pincushion.
The pin cushion is from Leukaemia Support Group's Christmas and the man giving out the Secret Santa gifts, and his wife, has bought it especially for me so he made sure I received it. It is just what I need!! I made a Christmas Star face cloth for our lovely Nurse.
What else?? I made a Christmas Craft apron for MrsDrWho to wear at school with four pockets to keep her implements safe, and we all want to keep our implements safe, don't we?? She's doing a flash bit of modelling here.
I whipped up some pencil cases for popping in your handbag, it's a variation of the coin purse pattern.
I have to announce the sad demise of the Coles' $10 recipes. How foolish I was to stop collecting the cards and rely on the website they were promoting. It disappeared. I have to say it is no loss. The recipes were nothing to write home about.
This year I have chosen a December Donna Hay magazine and I am just making the Christmas Treat recipes from it. No juggling forty books and spreadsheets of ingredients and shopping lists. I feel a weight is lifted from me!!
Last year I posted some tutorials and recipes: nothing like that will be happening this year, but next post I might make a list of recipe and craft links. Then at least I feel I have made an effort!!
It's a little quiet, I must go and check up on Lorelai Gilmore. Last time it was quiet she was standing in the corner with her head in a cereal box. Apparently she was trapped and when I pulled it off she had to be cuddled and patted till she recovered!! At least she wasn't eating more of my make-up brushes. She's a bit tall and has a long reach now!! Here's Harki, needing a pat and Peri too!! Time for a cup of tea and I will curl up on the couch and craft the evening away.
