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

(As a 20-something year old Uni student, I wouldn't have given a pfaff
but as a 43 year old mother of three,

...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.
...my 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.
(Norie- Gudrun Johnston)
...those cats lulled me into a false sense of security.
I thought that they actually spent their nights sleeping.
