We are currently here – a little south-west of the middle of nowhere …
Life is going very well. The caravan is holding up superbly and the landscape, though dry, is very picturesque. I have actually been doing quite a bit of late – due to Handy Husband (HH) finding others to go prospecting with – so he does not have to impinge on his goodly wife to go with him – yay!
Goodly wife, when she does go, must sit in the car (as flies far too rapaciously awful to even consider sitting outside to knit in the beautiful wide open spaces). Boo (the spoilt miniature fox terrier) must also stay (hyperactive and long clawed) in the car with me. Her canine habits of sniffing any sort of hole, grass, rock, dirt, air .. is problematic as many poisoned dog baits have been laid (to control wild dog populations), snakes are also coming out of hibernation and eagles think she is just the right take away meal size. Great. Boo and my relationship went through a rough patch there for a while. The car just wasn’t big enough for the both of us.
Needless to say I am VERY happy to stay in van at caravan park where I can walk the dog, cook, eat, knit, read, write, eat, felt etc. Yes, life is fabulous now HH has found some friends! The unfortunate side effect of this happiness is an expanding waistline. A small price for the happiness though.
I’m also doing some online ‘Blogging University’ courses. Yep, getten smarter-er [she hopes with crossed fingers]. You may have even spotted some changes to my pages already. But can I keep the momentum going? History shows it’s not looken too good..
Breakfast accessory items. Small, some may even say – insignificant. For those of us with an attention deficit disorder when it comes to creating large objects, well, breakfast accessories are really good due to their dainty sizes, so can be satisfyingly quick to finish.
I’ve been thinking lately that if I was sitting down to brekkie and was confronted with a boiled egg cosily wearing a pair of underpants – well, it would certainly make me smile. Not entirely sure it would do its job of keeping the egg warm, but it would be amusing, making a great start to the day.
Perhaps a pair of grandfather Y fronts, or brightly coloured, cheeky unisex ones. Then, of course, some knitted then felted ones using the last (eek!) of my lovely Noro Koreyo yarn. So many options! Not enough time! NEED MORE YARN!!! AAArrrggggg!!!! [dying of frustration].
Soon, we will be arriving in Geraldton, WA. I’m hoping to heaven they are well stocked with fantastic yarns – otherwise a depression may be looming …
Wishing you a wonderful start to your day,
