>What can I tell you?
Three day tossing-up-the-toes migraine again. I’m still a bit queezy but I’ve actually managed to keep a bowl of porridge down this arvo and a couple of dry biscuits this morning [ crackers for the non-aussies ]
I even had to cancel a class yesterday and that just NEVER happens. I’ve taught through a gazillion migraines, the flu, broken bones even, but I couldn’t even manage to stay upright without heaving so teaching was definitely out. Likewise dance class last night and this morning AND I didn’t get to patchwork today either. Rats.
I weighed the girls and they’ve tripled their birth weight in four weeks. Rowan hits the scales at 13 kgs and Ruby at just under 12. Because we’ve just had two weeks of school holidays, the girls have had many little visitors. This is my friend Zoe with young Miles, who most definitely did NOT want to go home.
Not so much, but like just about everyone in Knitblogdom I’ve made a couple of pairs of Saartje’s bootees. These won’t be the last. It’s such a cute pattern and so easy once you get used to the rather idiosyncratic way it’s written.
My friend Donna [ Coffee Bean Donna ] has had her twins six or so weeks early, so the stuff I made for them is a bit too big at the moment [ and not sewn up yet ] but I had a bunch of prem stuff ready to go down to the NICU at The Royal Womens’ which is where Donna had the bubs so I sent it down with her sister and instructions for her to keep whatever fitted and then donate the rest. Hamish and Angus are breathing on their own and weigh a bit over a kilo each [ 3 lbs ]
Still chuffing along on the Maze quilt. Needless to say buggerall got done the last three days.
and to finish off, here’s this week’s gratuitous cat photo: Ms C and Oakley in reasonably peaceful proximity – and we won’t mention the piece that Sophie took out of C soon after.
