School holidays

The school holidays are almost at a close and as usual I’m sad to see them go.

I thoroughly enjoy my girls company and the things we do together

Lots of things happened these holidays.

Days out,lovely morning teas( including a divine rocky road cheesecake!) bargain buys,laybys for Xmas, movies,nail painting,hair straightening,tears and sadness.

I purchased the learn to drive manual for Miss Lizze. When on earth did they start costing $12!!!!!
Back in my day,they were FREE! I think she was a little shocked at the size of the booklet and all that she had to learn.

There was looking at doona covers as ideas for birthday and as Xmas pressies



Miss Mary went off to the movies with a friend. Just the 2 of them ,so it involved train timetables and movie times and a large dose of pride in doing it yourself. She had a ball.

Miss Annie was to meet up with a friend at the shops to celebrate said friends birthday. This child’s home situation is unpredictable to say the least so it was with sadness and lots of tears when the meeting was cancelled at the last minute. Rocky road cheesecake did offer some consolation.

I had a brain fart whilst making the lace panel for Miss Mary’s cardigan. It was only when I was blocking it that I realised I had only knitted HALF of it. Oh my…

Here it is in its entirety

And a close up

Isn’t it lovely? I do love this part of the cardigan.

Luna has been making herself very much at home. She is such a funny kitteh and we love her to bits

She has a fascination with wool so much so that I had to give her some of mine to keep her away from my knitting

I was lucky enough to win some lovely chokkie

It didn’t last long.

Health wise it has been a bit of a roller coaster. I tried the new med Lyrica,from the pain specialist and while it did help,it also rendered me useless for most of the day. I was awake for only about 5-6 hrs per day which was awful so I decided not to take it anymore. I had heard the side effects could be brutal but this was not what I expected.
It also made me rather depressed,yes more than usual,suicidal in fact. So that was another reason to stop taking it.

I had a busy day on Thursday. Nothing huge,just a lot of to-ing and fro-ing . I then had a bad night and ended up sleeping in til 2pm. The girls were great. Miss Mary also slept until 12.30pm.
I have 2 toes that keep dislocating and causing some difficulty in walking. This is in addition to the big toe on the same foot that does the same. The ends of the toes are painful which is nasty.
My hip has also been making its presence felt more than usual

The garden is a bit of a first go at growing winter vegies and they aren’t looking too great. Bugga. Never mind there is always next year!
