I am looking forward to next Friday. Between today and next Friday there are a lot of things happening: three medical appointments (And my last one on Wednesday took two hours including all the waiting time at the clinic for a ten minute procedure. I knitted. They were run off their feet.) several outings to celebrate a certain Time Lady's birthday, a knitting afternoon tea and recovering from my mum and aunt's visit. It was a lovely visit, but I have to be in tip top shape and be happy and cheery and stay up late and generally enjoy myself. Which I did. But now I am pretty much too tired to sleep!!
Peri, at the back, and Miss Gilly, in front, met Nanny and their Aunty. There was a small amount of leaping on Gilly's part, but then she was a good girl. I have eaten out three times since lunch yesterday and there are three more 'eating outs' to come in the next two days!! My oven will be sitting sad and cold in the kitchen.
The weather has been wintry. There is torrential rain, thunder and lightning and wild winds. So wild, that they blew the letters out of the foam on the verandah that I had set up for blocking my knitting. The power has been off too, but I have some candles and matches at the ready!!
So it's just a week, a week in the presence of duty, and then I can be off duty for a while. I plan to knit, and sew and maybe reply to my comments. I LOVE replying, it's not a chore or a duty, and neither are social outings!!! Right now I am going to make a hot water bottle - one without a hole poked with a knitting needle, and then sit on the couch with a cup of tea and watch the 7pm ABC news!!!
