Tomorrow night is Census Night. I enjoy Census night and this year you can fill in the form on-line. Which I am grateful for, as I saw my Census man walking down the street at Morning Tea time last week and he spat, twice, on my front lawn. I didn't really want to hand him all my details in an envelope. He could have opened it. Yes, I do believe, slightly, in conspiracy theories, which is why I always vote using my own pen (not green, in case they recognise me!!) and not the pencil provided, so they can't change my vote.
You can play the Census Spotlight here. I pretended to be several different people!!
I shall also answer Yes to the question that asks if they can keep my information and make it available in one hundred years. They can go right ahead, I won't be here!!! I see on Who Do You Think You Are? how helpful the Census information can be.
Actual knitting content. Yes, some cabled socks in dark blue Patonyle, which is just terrible on the eyes of an evening. I must buy a knitting/embroidery light. I am cabling without a cable needle, but as the cables are just CF4 and CB4 I knit the second pair of stitches on the needle and then I go back and knit the first two stitches. It works well, and I just can't cable without a cable needle. I have tried, but my resting off the needle stitches just unravel before my eyes.
The rain started bucketing down just as we got into the car at the end of our walk and it hasn't stopped yet. After their breakfast and some more rowdy games, The Labradors finally settled down for a nap together.
I have some new measuring cups. I have been coveting these for ages now, but because the matching measuring spoons aren't to Australian Standards, I didn't bother with any at all. Now I have some, thanks to Mrs HouseOf. They have a great range of measurements and are inordinately cute as well.
I read the last of Glenda Larke's WaterGiver series, StormLord's Exile, last night. I have had it for a week, but I didn't want the trilogy to end so I just read a few pages each night, until last night I gave in and read it all in one fell swoop. I also have Son of Heaven by David Wingrove on the go. I am not loving it as I am too worried that the dog is going to die, and it is the first of twenty books and I am not sure I want to commit to something I am only so-so about.
Today I baked a whole pumpkin for The Labradors' food. They love it, it is sweet and tasty!! Later on I am going to make a second chocolate pavlova, ready for MrsDrWho's mornigntea and my blog. Then tonight I talk to my mum on the phone. Afterwards I am always very tired and we go to bed!!
