Not sure if I blogged about it earlier (memory like a sieve), but I did some sewing for a swap with the lovely Andrea. I sent of 3 pairs of baby shoes, and a wee surprise for her daughter too, in return Andrea was going to knit me something (a surprise). Well my parcel arrived on Saturday, but the camera wasn’t talking to the computer so it took me a while to get pics on here I was so pleased with my pressie, it must have been very hard to choose something to knit, especially for a complete stranger who lives on the other side of the world, where it’s just coming into spring.
Look at the gorgeous things i got. A cabled cowl and headband/ear warmer. Despite in being spring, the weather here has turned bad again, so I’ve been using them already. The yarn is a beautiful Debbie Bliss Alpaca wool. Very soft and snuggly. And the green is a great colour on me. So Andrea, big thanks, it was lovely swapping with you. I do feel bad though, as the postage from the US to here was horrendous. So i will def keep that in mind for any future swaps.
Now onto more mundane stuff.
I bought Cam these cool Batman PJ’s when he was just a little baby, saw then on TM and couldn’t resist them. Now he’s a big boy, he fit them. Cute aye?
The other night he got hold of the sunshade which i had out ready to put back on his car seat (huh, where’d spring go?), and he decided it made a good sleeping bag. So easy to keep kids amused
When we were gardening on the weekend Ian caught this Skink. It was quite happy being checked out, and didn’t really even try to run away.
I’m off now to try and catch the late news. We are having a (almost) TV free week. Yesterday we saw 45 mins of 60 minutes, and then I watched the late news, and today we watched 2 movies (one at each end of the day), which for us is pretty good. We’ve been playing heaps of games. It’s pretty hard to play board games with a just 2 year old round, hence the movies to amuse him, but most of the time it’s not bad. Lilly has even been reading (shock horror), two books already.
