In the spirit of being grateful for everything – I am grateful that the mailman came and delivered me a wonderful wonderful package – hot from the United States!
Warning Warning Warning Warning
Oh yes…….Hand dyed sock yarn from StashUp Yarn, courtesy of Etsy!
*hamster dance* Thank you Nina! It’s marshmellow soft, and smells of lavender!
Getting kinky with my Guide Dog…
And even better – the Holy Grail arrived (See – Indiana Jones could have saved himself a lot of grief – post those icons to yourself, then other people can’t steal them…)
And having read through it – I need to photocopy it and make it into something that my dyslexia can deal with. The trouble is that the pattern is written in a solid BLOCK of text which needs to be broken up a bit…
In between coughing…. and working on Avatar III, I got tagged by Elaine (thank you!) so I am answering her tag…
Second of all – I’m posting the rules….
1. When tagged, place the name of the person and URL on your blog
2. Post the rules on your blog
3. Write 7 things about yourself
4. Name 7 of your favorite weblogs
5. Send an e-mail letting those bloggers know they have been tagged.
3. Seven things about me…
a. I believe in being nice to Security Guards, you never know when you are going to need them to help you.
b. I’ve had plastic surgery. I had an over-enthusiastic bosom (seriously, I could have fallen over face first and my nose would have not been in any danger of hitting the ground) and after four hours worth of surgery, I now am a Bcup rather than the overemphatic DD I used to be. Highly recommended.
c. I have this idiot savant habit of being able to quote movies and do so at the drop of a hat.
d. I have accepted that Depression is something I will be battling with forever but having people around to help me not take my life too seriously is part of the cure (hugs to all of you!).
e. I believe that positive thinking and visualising what you want to achieve is the best way to help you realise your goals.
I didn’t until I read The Secret – I try not to sound too fanatical about it, but the book is worth reading.
f. I find it hard to forgive liars.
g. As much as I want to travel and visit exotic places – I find it hard to leave my room sometimes…
4. My favourite blogs are (though I don’t have seven):
Saving Argus (a story that will make you cry) YOU MUST READ FROM THE START.
Elaine’s Cats n Hooks
I am so pleased Mer has taken the opportunity to show her work to people!.
and I have emailed people….
I am feeling a bit better. I have been hitting the combination of willowbark, echinacea, olive leaf, Nurofen and mushroom soup pretty hard but there’s still the feeling that the temperature would kick back up if I do too much…
On the crochet front –
Avatar III has continued and to answer an email (or two) question, today I pulled out an old friend:
Shown here with a AAA battery as scale. Yes, it’s the Laceweight Merino Christening Gown.
I did the maths and the Gown has now covered over 15,000km withoutbeing anything like finished!
So that’s it for me for today, thank you so much for all your comments!
Catch you tomorrow!
