thanks to the magic that is now blogger's editing, I have I idea where each photo starts and ends, so I will just say that above here is the cat helping me with the new blocking wires and the wires doing what I bought them for. The lovely Penny (rav link) sourced the wires, sourced the tubes (custom made because the wires are one metre long) and then sold them to us at the West Ryde Knitter's Guild group, and the West Ryde pub group. I have never used blocking wires before and so it is amazing exciting and so much quicker and easier to do this way. Woot Penny, thank you. (ps are you ready to go for broke selling them to the Knitting Guild?)

birthday wrap upToday is the final day of the week long festival of fifty, celebrating my 50th birthday. To summarise, Sunday last week lunch at Ventuno's, where they even made me a birthday cake with my name on it (that's a first), Tea on my birthday itself was Chinese with free wine thrown in by my favourite local shop, Wednesday night was pub knitting, and girls organised me a surprise birthday party. It's the first time ever and apart from the embarrassment factor of being the centre of attention, it was lovely. There was cake and presents (so many lovely presents) and it was very overwhelming. I have been trying to get my head around it all, and so for a quick photo montage, which in now way will do proper justice to the loveliness of the night, here it is.

easter show - the story begins .....On Ravelry there is a grand plot to fill the Toy Cabinet at the Sydney Royal Easter Show with outrageous toys. I hope also to add in a small way to the mayhem. Watch this space for upcoming plot revelations as they occur.

Bloody QuentinIt is a really long story, and really most of the time he is so not worth the breath it takes to talk about him, but currently he is making Kat's life a misery. Do click on the link and enjoy what he says about himself. It says it all really.

November and the countdown beginsSo to explain the pictures, Oscar is walking along minding his own business, when out of nowhere, Mr Jinx jumps him. They wrestle, Oscar swats at him and they both end up bathing one another! Brotherly love, it's just like kids really.
It is the beginning of November. Today was a perfect spring day in Sydney, albeit a little warm, but we worked in the garden (alright Lizzie worked, I swanned about giving advice), Geffo rode in the Sydney to the Gong bike ride to raise funds for MS research, and the cats wrestled. Yes people we have photos, not great, but its a new camera and I am just playing at the moment.
