Entirely Justifiable Stash Enhancement and a BARGAIN
And three balls of Jo Sharp DK for my Project Spectrum project. I'm not telling you what the project is, but I will tell you that it will be something I've never knit before, and I'll be using colour in a way I've never done before. Bwahahah. Or something.
And I got the BARGAIN of the decade in an opshop (thrift shop) near where I bought the Jo Sharp: a pair of eight-up Doc Marten boots that had obviously been worn less than half a dozen times. And. They. Fit. Me. Perfectly. Beautiful. And how much did I pay for this pair of boots which will last me the next ten years? FIVE BUCKS. That's around $3.50 in US dollars. I was smug for the rest of the day.
And a political rant: Our Minister for the Environment (popularly known as the Minister for Coal - no kidding, he really is!) has banned a huge series of windfarms because they threaten the habitat of a rare parrot. Despite the fact that the said rare parrot doesn't even fly anywhere near the area of the proposed windfarm, let alone live there. And despite the fact that threatening endangered species has never stopped him FOR A SINGLE FUCKING SECOND approving digging fossil fuels out of the ground using companies owned by his mates. How does this PRICK sleep at night????
Sorry, I'll calm down in a moment or two......
Good thing for the day: We're off to Bendigo to check out the Charles Rennie Mackintosh exhibition. And possibly the Bendigo Wool Mills. Shaddup.
Bad thing for the day: Brain in a fog. I'll try again later.
