The Week That Was 03-09-2011

We've been quite slack this week, only unpacking a few boxes and bags. I think I've spent far too much time paying games on the computer instead of doing what I aught to do. The game that has been taking most of my attention is a little thing called Simutrans which is available as a free download.

I did manage to get to the gym twice this week so I'm still getting my exercise, and Sue restarted her Aqua-aerobics after the physio told her it was OK. She plans on joining me in the gym when she's not in the pool so I will probably end up going 4 days a week instead of just 2.

Sue has been trying to add a few things to my to-do list this week. One of our neighbours has a pregnant friend or relative and Sue wanted to sell her a coat, bonnet and booties set but I sold the bonnet and booties last Saturday so of course I can make more, then on Thursday night she volunteered me to make 22 bookmarks as presents for the Watoto Choir that will be visiting in October. I think I'll discuss that one with the CO before I start on them.

Thinking about my to-do list, apart from the bonnet and booties that I've been working the last couple of days, I haven't made any progress on getting through it, and even the bonnet and booties is causing trouble as I forgot which hook I was supposed to use for the booties and they came out bigger than they were supposed to. I guess it pays to read the pattern once in a while just to refresh my memory, but it's such a simple pattern.

I have almost all of my yarn unpacked now although I know there must be another bag of 8ply somewhere as I have an empty basket. I'm sure I'll find it eventually.

That's it from me for this week.
