Like sands through the hourglass, so are the days of our lives. Where did the week go? Now, Unsuspecting Reader, I shall tell you!!!
Lorelai Gilmore nearly gave me a heart attack. I was throwing her toy up the backyard, and I mean up: it's terraced, so I was throwing to the next level. She took off from a standing start just inside the back door and then scaled the retaining wall about three metres away in one single bound. It's 135cm high. She leaped up the wall and found some kind of purchase with her back feet on the way up and suddenly there she was at the top. To her surprise and mine. She hasn't done it again. Thank goodness.
On Tuesday we won at Trivia: Hooray for us!! We had MrsDrWho's brother (Mr Macau) and her sister (now Mrs Singapore) and our table was complete. We hardly ever have eight people. I gave MrsDrWho her George Cowl-ey and her Mr Spiggott Socks and they were duly admired and the cowl modelled.
We had lots of walks, late walks, because I have been sleeping in. The puddles are covered with thick ice and it has been raining but that doesn't deter Peri and Gilly loves a dip the creek.
The picnic area at the dam is being given a face lift with a new fence. Peri and Gilly were not quite sure about it at first, but Peri has now given it her grin of approval. The grass and even the gravel is all icy.
There has been some Doctor Who catching up at MrsDrWho's house, but I still have three episodes to watch and tomorrow's final as well.
I sewed a new cover for my hot water bottle.That's some polar fleece, I think, and some sock wool as the blanket stitch. It's really a big specially shaped envelope!!
Thursday night was Sewing and I gave MrsDrWho the next in her long and drawn out birthday present parade: Mittens with the Starship Enterprise on them, and it's ID number too. I found a 4ply pattern (Ravelry link), but I was using 8ply Luxury so I had to adjust the chart and MacGyver a pattern to make it fit.Here they are:
On Friday I cooked, again, and went to The GardyGardener's for afternoon tea. I am knitting Mrs GardyGardener some mittens with fingers. I also made two cakes and some delicious pork and apple sausage rolls, which we ate before I remembered to take a picture!! I made little pizzas with cream cheese. marinated olives and pancetta. Yum!! There's some Amy Johnson and Kiss Biscuits too. I love my oven, the novelty has not worn off yet!!
Today we've been for a walk, I popped into the Library and I have been lying on the couch watching TV and sewing my Annus Vestis. I have, not unsurprisingly, put July 1st to the 4th somewhere safe. Where that is I am not exactly sure, but the energy efficient lights make it too dark to photograph July 5th to the 10th anyway.
Peri Naughty and Lorelai Gilmore are fast asleep on the couch, the rain is making that nice sound on the roof and the wind is whistling around outside. Time for another cup of tea and some Doc Martin anon!!
