Trip planning is coming along swimmingly - only 52 sleeps to go!!! We've booked most of our accommodation - La, any recommendations for staying in or near LA? Heh. Get it? Ahem. I am so very much looking forward to meeting so many of you!
Sock knitting is cruising along - I've now finished five socks and I'm doing the toe of the sixth. I promise I will blog these! I'm just so happy to have the sock mojo back - socks is all I feel like knitting right now, I'm getting a lot of pleasure from it. I'm currently doing lots of scrappy stripy socks to use up some of my sock yarn leftovers.
Marlowe is getting HUGE, and is still supremely arrogant and energetic. Except when it comes to Lulu. Every now and then he forgets and bounces up to her, and she then delivers one of her almighty smackdowns, which I think she hugely enjoys, so everybody wins.
I have upped my meds dosage and it seems to be helping a little. On Saturday I went out for the day with Gibbering - we went to Dandenong and visited opshops and clothes shops - we lasted a whole five minutes in the yarn shop before she informed me that THIS IS HELL and we left. Poor Gibbering! Heh. I bought a pair of jeans, a skein of sock yarn, and a spinning book for Yarnivorous, who we dropped in on on the way home. I also bought some of her sock yarn while we were there - pics to follow!
After I got home I wound up my new sock yarn, and wound up some other skeins as well, and knitted and watched dvds with Dave. At the end of the day, something felt weird. I had a good day. I enjoyed myself, saw friends, bought Yarn, etc - not an unusal day in itself, but the difference was that on Saturday I wasn't depressed. All day. A whole day! This gives me a scary insight into what it must be like to be 'normal'. Wow. I think I like it!
I've been crashing a bit since then, but Saturday actually gave me a lot of hope!
Right. I'm at work and I should at least act like it.
