There was nearly a Doctor Who catastrophe an hour or so ago. I walked past the Doctor Who bookcase and gave it a little adjustment. Bad idea. It started to tilt and then shift and before I knew it a cascade of books had started. Geronimo!!!! I managed to hop un-nimbly up onto the lounge chair and prop it up. Gilly took off for the safety of the bedroom and refused to come out for ages. Peri 'helped' by trying to jump up in the chair. I managed to plug the dyke of books, but now the top half of the shelves is off the bottom half and there are quite a lot of books, and other paraphernalia, in the chair now. I can see that I am going to spend a long time tomorrow taking the rest of books off the bookcase and then putting them all back on the properly balanced book case.
While I was ordering a half price pattern at Spotlight ( I am calling them that today because they were very helpful on the phone and email from The Mainland. The ladies who work in our shop are very kind and nice) I bought two more. The skirt is for MrsHouse Of, who loves the whole dippy and swirly hem style. Oh and The World can rest easy, I shan't be wearing the halterneck dress, I'll be making the short sleeved version.
I've started the sleeves for Evergreen Vines cardigan. I am pretty sure it's wrong, but I am knitting on regardless. I've calculated the increases and predicted how many rows I will need. It's only knitting, I can unravel it and start again.
In happy Green upper nether garment news, I've ordered this!!! I ordered on-line and Target Australia will send it to the shop in town and I just go in and collect it: no postage costs!!!
It started raining at lunch time and it has been very stormy and so wet. Gilly doesn't let that stop her hopping up on the outside table. I've put foam squares on top as she doesn't like the slippery surface and gets trapped there. So far the plants are so good.
Peri is eminently more sensible and spent the afternoon curled up in her chair on the little quilt she has appropriated!!!
At our house, you can pretty much bet the farm, your life, or the limit, that when one of the new-fangled light bulbs blows, we only have The Other Kind. We have both bayonet and spiral and every time there are two of the wrong kind of bulbs in the cupboard. Seriously though, they do not last 5* years. Ever. Even at 1.5 hours a day instead of the 5.5* they recommend. We also have either lots of cornflour or custard powder, but rarely both, sometimes neither and two packets of breadcrumbs or anything else with yellow on the box!!
Every time I press the Publish Button I remember I have forgotten to say I added a Search Box to the to the top right of the blog. It might be handy if you are searching for something. I know not what, but I've used it to find my own recipes!!!
The computer is off for its one year service tomorrow and it will be gone for some time. Maybe a day. Maybe two. We shall be internet-less. Au revoir.....
