28.05.12

Feeling very scattered today, too much going on around here, my brain feels like pea soup. So a very scattered blog post.

  • I want these so much.
  • I’m gartering along on Quill, and not bored so far. Have completed 35 ridges, 100 to go and then I can start the edging. Definitely getting faster at garter stitch. Still desperately in love with this new merino yarn. Like knitting with a sheepy cloud.
  • Hoping to snatch a few days away in the next couple of weeks, in the caravan. So far our excursions in it have been limited to sitting in it with a cup of tea and our backgammon board.
  • That makes us sound about 80 years old!
  • If you’re buying a used car, please make sure you get a full check run on it first. We almost went for one, decided at the last minute to pay for a full HPI check, and uncovered some dodgy stuff including mileage falsification and an undeclared insurance write off. Yowzer.
  • I’m reading Beatrix Potter’s journal¬†at the moment. Perfectly splendid.
  • Also, Listening To Depression. A fascinating different take on depression.
  • Why are tee-shirts from the US so much nicer than tee-shirts from the UK? Is the cotton different? It feels softer, thinner. Totally worth the shipping and customs fees.
  • Is anyone else watching the new TV show Awake? So good.
  • I wish my strawberries would hurry up – they are still only in flower. Supermarket berries are so watery and tasteless. I want a strawberry feast.
  • Am I the only one who is already bored by the Olympics and/or Jubilee hype?
  • I don’t like hype.
  • I am loving the lighter evenings, but I’m not a fan of sun pouring through my windows at 5am.
  • I think I want to be vegetarian again.
  • I’m finally getting grey hairs. In my eyebrows! Possibly in my hair too, but I haven’t noticed them there, because my hair is blonde, but my eyebrows are dark, so they are noticeable. 36, going on 37, not too bad an age, right?
  • Tony finally got an iPhone, after longing for one for years. He was so excited about Siri, the voice recognition software. But what a swizz, it only works fully in the USA!
  • My laptop went to hospital last week, and when it came back to me, the wireless internet function wasn’t working properly, which is annoying beyond belief. No more working in bed!!!
  • The keyboard hasn’t been put back properly either. I’m going to have to complain. I hate complaining. To someone’s face, at any rate. Yes, I’m a wuss.
  • I can’t think of anything else.
  • Have a happy Monday!

  1. I’m a relatively new reader of your blog, and I have to tell you that I’ve been thoroughly engrossed in reading your posts. You really have a talent for sharing your innermost thoughts and feelings and in a way that makes me feel as if I’d just had a nice long visit over coffee with you. I have a difficult time expressing many of the same feelings I have in common with you, and your ability to relate the stories and thoughts in your day to day life strikes such a resounding cord with me.

    Thank you for sharing your words and spirit with us all. You are greatly loved and appreciated @->—

  2. I felt like doing a point by point! Want what? Love Sheepy Clouds more than Sheepy Sheep, hate caravans when they’re in front, love caravans when they are in a field etc. etc. – in the end I have decided to say – please explain Awake to me, or not the concept which I ‘get’, but the different crimes and their overlapping – I get soooooooo confused! I am writing this on Wednesday and Monday was perfectly shitty (‘scuse my French) – but today is all fine including a sweet and short summer shower!

  3. Aw you do make me laugh, not in a laugh at you way but because I empathise with the way your mind and posts seem to dart from thing to thing and yet seems to make sense to me! Awake totally get it and love it, still expect Lucius Malfoy to appear at any moment though. Not really of course. More strawberries needed it must be about time to make a batch of jam so we can have summer in the winter too. Grey hair don’t even go there, of a similar age and a year or few ahead of you and have the grey eyebrows and got a nice patch developing at my temples too. Still it’s only hair right? As long as we have wool everything will be ok. Oh and where did you you get your tshirts from? Can’t knock a good tshirt. The week is ending much better than it started for me so I hope it is for you too.
