Queue jumping: I have things to tell you

Thursday, January 21, 2016
Hi Michelle,

I know that, strictly speaking, it's your turn to write a post and that I should wait patiently in line but I'm really not known for waiting patiently (unless of course its a post office queue, then the strict etiquette of  queuing will be adhered to). Also I know that you have been busy and a little unwell recently, so please forgive me for barging in.

We've had a busy few weeks, the kids are enjoying the school holidays and, perhaps to make up for the fact that we haven't been away together for the last year, we have been on two family holidays. As you know, the best thing about family trips within Australia is lots and lots of driving.

In car entertainment!

The first trip was to the Hunter Valley  for a couple of nights with some friends. The plan had been for the adults to  sample some wines at the cellar door and for the kids to play in the winery grounds
but it rained and rained and rained some more. As a consequence, the kids ended up staying at the accommodation and the adults operated a roster of who had to stay back with them. Much wine was purchased and Mr Doh managed to keep me away from the Alpaca store.

The accommodation was lovely and I hope we go back next year.

Here's where we stayed (that's the lake in the background, not flooding)

Despite the rain, the kids still went swimming in the pool, because they are nuts!

The second holiday you know all about because I came to see you. We had a great time and were happy to get to see you again.

On the way home from your place we stopped at Berry, which is such a beautiful little town. I was delighted to find a local independent craft store which had a great selection of yarn.

I made a purchase

This eye searing beauty is a now a discontinued brand, lots of knitters are very sad about this, particularly those of us who enjoy colourwork, because the vibrant colours work so well as a contrast to more subtle colours.

I'm actually not sure what it will become yet but little miss K seems to think neon bed socks would be best.

Anyway I hope you are feeling better.

I miss you buddy,

  1. How did I miss this? New to this blogging biz. I miss you too, even though we've just seen each other! That Hunter Valley spot looks so beautiful! Wow, really bright yarn. Bed socks would be cute, but I see what you mean about contrasting it against a neutral too. Against white, off-white or a silvery pale grey it would be awesome. I have projects to share, but all need a bit of finishing off. I'm missing photos, need to make sure I get more shots of what I'm doing while I'm doing it. Talk soon x

  2. By the way, LOVE that green stripe sock. I am always amazed by hand knitted socks, as you know.
