Wheels n' Things
And these are my other set of stichmarkers from Mrspao! I am so embarrassed - I didn't look further into the box than the beauties on the top layer - I may never have found them if mrspao hadn't sent a polite hint...... I just didn't actually think it could get even better. Aren't they pretty? I wore my new earrings out to dinner on Saturday night, and they were much admir'd.
We went out on Saturday morning for a brief sortie into ChadstonetheFashionCapital (big local shopping centre. Generally filled with people looking grim and trying to find the exits while attempting to avoid the idiots wandering around under the happy impression that there is no better way to spend a Saturday. Generally, if we are there for more than half an hour I freak out at all the people rushing to buy random crap and I have to leave.) so that Dave could preorder a copy of the latest computer game coming out soon. Which, frankly, was incredibly dull. But I also got to press my face up against the pet shop window and make squeaky sounds of adoration at the two Rag Doll kittens. Soon afterwards, Dave got nervous (smart man!) and we left.
I haven't bought any yarn in two weeks now. Perhaps I'm ill.
Good thing for the day: Confirmation that this coming up weekend ( a long weekend for us Aussies) we are off to Sorrento with four friends. The six of us are renting a house near the beach, which we intend to use as a base for reading, sleeping, eating, knitting (okay, that's just me), eating, talking, eating, and sleeping. Can't wait!
Bad thing for the day: I've been a bit under the weather the last couple of days. I'm exhausted but I'm not sleeping properly. We went for a hard thirty-minute walk this afternoon for some exercise, and I spent a while when we got home deciding whether to throw up or pass out. Fortunately my body appears to be as indecisive as I am and we compromised with a nice long shower. And, oddly, a couple of times lately (well, this morning) when I've wanted a drink, I've chosen GATORADE over DIET COKE. I wonder if this means I'm getting fitter or if I'm just getting older?
