Lorelai Gilmore is Two, she's a puppy dog, not a proper dog yet. For her birthday she received lots of kisses and cuddles and pats, some squeaky toys and a dried kangaroo bone and special slimming chicken breast cut up on her breakfast. Peri had a few tiny pieces. It was really hard to take a good photo of Gilly today:
This is the best I could do. Happy Birthday Miss Lorelai Gilmore, our lovely and loving Gilly!!!
Not to be outdone, Peri has a sunshiny picture too. Peri also managed some Spirograph like purple ear adornment. I had a Spirograph set or two as a child which I LOVED so much. I spent happy hours making spirally circles and ellipses around curvy rulers.
Lunch was lovely with my friend whom I met when I started teaching at the same school twenty-two years ago now. I had lunch with friends at the Casino today and finally remembered to have the famous Club Sandwiches. I couldn't eat them all, so I smuggled one home in my bag!!! We say sangers, the British say sarnies, I don't know what North American Continental people say.
I have started my first knitting for the year, MrsDrWho's Harry Feet. I gave her two skeins and I am going to knit socks and a hat. I wanted to knit Hermione's Everyday socks but the subtle pattern was lost in the variegation of the colourful wool, so I am doing a rib and a pass the yfwd over panel instead. The wool is Harry Potter super-merino and nylon from the lovely Ixchel.
In other MrsDrWho news, I am an aunt again, and Peri and Gilly have a new cousin: baby Muppin!!! She is so tiny and part Manx so she has a stumpy tail, which she wiggles when she is excited! The Big Cats are slightly noses-out-of-joint, but not too badly.
I have seen The Easter Things in the shops and I have just taken a deep breath, and moved on.
This week has been full of days where I was going to do nothing and rest and but just didn't turn out that way. I sewed a dress for MissNeice, and she really likes it and as she will be going back home on the weekend, my day of doing nothing much tomorrow will involve sewing another dress. It is cheating though, it is already shirred so I only have to sew seams and straps!! And then maybe a cup of tea/coffee at the Kid's play centre along the road with MrsDrWho et al.
Right now, I am going to make another cup of tea, knit a few more rows and then we will retire to bed.
