Last month...April 2012

(Not quite keeping up with my This Week posts...)

Little Boozle 2012

...there have been brisk mornings, sunny days, colourful falling leaves
and rapidly cooling afternoons,
reminding me why Autumn is one of my favourite times of year.

...I was happy to see my walking man after a long absence.

...I have knitted and sewed
and even turned on my embroidery machine after more than a year.
 I am finally making things for my long-neglected boys.

...I found out that there is more salt in most takeaway pizzas
than in sea water.
(As a 20-something year old Uni student, I wouldn't have given a pfaff
but as a 43 year old mother of three,
I am horrified)

...we went to see a very cool Lego exhibit.

The adolescent sized T rex took a whole summer and 80 000 Lego bricks to build.
Very. Very. Cool. newly sewn up take out knitting bag has been dubbed The Tardis.
I can fit anything in there.

...I had gastro, a severe and lingering fight with an upper respiratory infection
and then was laid up with a sore back.
Here's hoping that May is a healthier month.

...I finished watching all the eps from the modern Dr Who era on ABC2,
only to find that they immediately started playing them all again.
I am a big fan but I really need that 4 hours a week back.

...I had a fringe cut in. Mr Boozle informs me that I look years younger.
It's a shame that a painless, free 1 minute snip can't make other body parts look and feel younger.

...those cats lulled me into a false sense of security.
I thought that they actually spent their nights sleeping.

Apparently not.

Those cats were put on this earth to do your head in, I sweat it. Hope you have a much more streamlined week this week Mrs. And I can't believe how you w a f t over all those crafty knitted objects! (finishing something is still a big deal around here. Even the dog knows about it).

I agree with Tania, those knitted items should be the main items! They're fantastic. Don't you love when you get a haircut and everyone says 'you look so much younger'; I get annoyed and think 'why didn't you tell me i was looking old and haggared?'. Love that knitted hat- I have picked up the sticks tonight after MONTHS of swearing off knitting! Crazy!
