I did finish a sock last night. I did start the new one today while BJ had nap time. I started a new book on cd. Makes time go by quite quickly when you are knitting & listening. I didn't think my mind would stay on the story but it did. This is the fourth audio book I have had from the library lately. Last week I listened to Walking Ollie by Stephen Foster I think. Can't remember, as I didn't really take much notice! It was good to sew too all the same & better than keeping daytime tv on for the noise anyway.
I am loving the book Meet me at Mike's & I am definitely going to get this one for myself. Hopefully this week. I have a project from that lined up for the next couple of days all going well. Stay tuned for that...
I have been busy with some book work too. It is the end of the financial year already! So I have to get the stuff finished & off to the accountants for tax time I suppose & then the tax man will take all my money! Or maybe he will be nice & give me some! We'll see....

If only I could have a puppy,I'd call myself so very lucky
Just to have some company
To share a cup of tea with me
I'd take my puppy everywhere
La la la la I wouldn't care
Then we'll stay away from crowds
With signs that say no dogs allowed
Oh we... I know he'd never bite me
We... I know he'd never bite me

Well it is amazing but Brandon is 1 year old today! No birthday pics of him so far, but for now I can show you the bunting I made a few months ago. It was a lot of cutting, sewing, cutting sewing. This is the first time we have hung it of course so finally I get to see it in all it's glory & I must say I am really rapt with how it came out. It's very festive & will hopefully last a lot of years. For more info on making your own bunting just visit one of my favourite blogs, The Purl Bee . There are a lot of other things there to see too.

Nothing much going on here in this place today. Just a whole lot of rain & finally a bit of sun in which time we managed to get a dry enough time for some fun at the playground. Brandon is addicted to the swings & does not want to get off! Spent most of the day at the mower shop with mum keeping her company. Brandon just goes flat out in there the whole time & finally conks out. So many fun things to play with. He likes riding around the shop in the lawn mower trailer! Will post a pic some time of it. He grins from ear to ear. I did get some stitching done while he had a sleep though so that was a bonus. Better get back to it as it is almost done.
