We’ve had some problems with our internet lately, this last outage lasted for 5 days. Gorgeous Man and I called into the service provider in person (numerous phone calls had no effect) this morning and spoke to a manager. Within 2 hours someone was at the house fixing it up…
So, in the down time, there has been lots going on here at Ruthsplace. We had a gift arrive from good friends in Australia.
Marmite is back on Australian shelves, but it will be a while before it arrives in Papua New Guinea. I’m really the only one in the family who eats it, so I’ve been enjoying it on toast 😀
We’ve been baking. So far we’ve made 36 cupcakes for the kids at school.
Thank you Green’s Packet Cake mixes. These had ‘fairy dust’. There are 31 children in Gorgeous Girl’s class, plus the teacher and an aide. Greens also provided the cake mix for the at home birthday cake.
Gorgeous Girl has been bugging us to visit this place since we arrived in Papua New Guinea, so we finally did. She had a blast.
She didn’t go down the yellow slide though. That’s a bit out of her league.
There’s been some charity knitting. Two hats.
This uses up some sock yarn and baby yarn scraps.
This is from the never ending ball of yarn.
There’s still at least half a ball of yarn left…
I’ve been adding to the hexagon quilt, but seem to have neglected to take a photo recently and there is a lace shawl that has been blocked and just needs the ends woven in. Hopefully the weather will clear up tomorrow and I’ll be able to get some photos.
