So today I put Gorgeous Man on a plane for the USA. He will be gone for a fortnight a week in the USA roughly and then a week in Toronto, Canada. I even managed the drive home on the very scary freeway in a new car OK. There was one heart stopping moment, but we survived safely. Have I mentioned I hate driving on the N2 out of Cape Town?
I know it seems like we are real jetsetters, but it’s just coincidence the way things worked out, we don’t usually fly all over the world for work.
Last night, after finishing work at 9 pm I was watching Gorgeous Man packing his suitcase and suddenly felt guilty that he was taking a commercial beanie to keep his head warm when he is married to a knitter. So I went stash diving, and found some likely yarn – Gorgeous Man looked doubtful, but he humoured me and picked one he liked. He did say something about me needing to sleep, and having to work the next day, but I didn’t hear him as I was in the frenzy of casting on for a new project…
Um, apparently I can’t knit a beanie, and care for a one year old, and work a ‘proper job’ in under 12 hours – who knew?!
It’s going to be a pictureless fortnight of posts since Gorgeous Man has taken my digital camera with him.
Gorgeous Girl spent much of the afternoon wandering the house looking for Dahdi. I think somehow, that she is going to miss him much more than she missed me. Dahdi is the only word that we are sure she knows the meaning of! She’s got a few others, but they seem to be hit and miss, so I’m not counting them yet.
Our break-away (from the guild) sewing group is having its first meeting on Thursday. We are meeting in a local park, which will be very nice, Gorgeous Girl will be able to run around without me worrying about her breaking anything (I’ll just have to make sure she doesn’t get too close to the resident tortoises). I’ll be taking knitting, since I don’t have any handwork at the moment.
I’ve decided to machine stitch the applique down with matching thread. If I get a chance I’ll be visiting the thread store tomorrow, otherwise it’ll have to be Thursday. New Elna store in the mall was a disappointment. mostly nasty overpriced acrylic yarn, and polyester sewing thread, and the ladies were unfriendly and unhelpful. I’ll keep supporting the smaller local shops thank you very much.
Well, it’s late and I should go to bed, or I’m not going to be able to get up in the morning for my 7am start for work. Mind you working from home means that my commute time is very brief 🙂
