Today I had training meetings at work. I slipped out for a bathroom break and on the way checked my mail. My parcel from my knitter’s coffee swap pal arrived. Thank you Diane, it’s wonderful! I knew what it was as soon as I picked up the box. The coffee smelt divine.
Having very low impulse control, said package was opened in the mail room and then stashed in a friends office while I returned to my meeting and tried to tell Gorgeous Man about all of the goodies I’d received, in a hushed whisper that kept getting louder as the excitement overwhelmed me.
Here’s what my very generous pal sent:Lots and lots of sock yarn! Some oreos, some coffee, some stitch markers and some very cute Christmas decorations.
At lunchtime, I called in to see Simone who is also a member of the knitter’s coffee swap. We broke open the oreos and the coffee and before you could blink had her coffee maker going. The coffee is very, very good. I hope Diane likes her package as much as I like mine.
We have also started knitting socks, with local yarn – started last night. I managed to get her started right, but every time I go to join the first round on my own pair I screw up. I must have frogged the cast on at least 3 times… I think I have to find a small room and focus…
Gratuitious cat shots. This is Fat Boy exploiting the pile of clean laundry waiting to be folded.
This was the face I got when I pulled out the camera, but then he decided to ignore me and go back to sleep. He was one very unhappy cat when he was ejected from his little nest.
Singing went well last night, the hall was packed and they were hoping to raise about 40 000 Rand for charity.
The only downside was that yesterday was one of the hottest days we’ve had this spring and on the stage under the lights it was even hotter. One of the older ladies standing behind me passed out from the heat and was too far from the stage door to move. Fortunately one of the women standing next to her has medical training, so there wasn’t a complete panic. In fact I’m not sure the audience even noticed as there was so much else happening on the stage at the time.
Thank you once again Diane, I’m looking forward to playing with the yarn you sent.
