berry happy

happy girl today, lovely weekend celebrating jo's (or 'the duck' as trent has taken to calling her as her last name is drake. ha ha) birthday in sydney on sat evening after some flyball training with her and the st george mob who jem used to race with before we moved down here (we have not been overly happy with the flyball scene in the ACT and miss our old team so it was nice to get back amongst it with friends). they a great bunch of people and dinner was lovely. jo has ten dogs in her little inner city house, she keeps rescuing them off death row! 6 of them are small, 4 chihauhaus and its like a mad house when you chuck our two in there as well. crazy fun.

came home sun morning and left trent to nap on the lounge while i finally made it into stitch and bitch after missing weeks! which was lovely. the very clever miss spider made me something:

yes its made to order self striping sock wool called Berry Stripey. looking at it makes me berry happy. i am working on these socks in a similar colour:

they are lovely but they are not stripey and i am all about the striped socks. esp the self-striping kind!

i also ordered some earrings and a necklace from margie for a work function of trents i have to go to, and am very excited to see what she comes up with.

great conversation and awesome hot chocolate (thanks sherpa) made for a lovely afternoon. tho i am a bit worried about spidey. take care miss p.

this morning i swam 1300 metres on my fourth swim in a week - up from the 800 i started back with. i did 1300 today in the same time it took me to do 1000 last wed so thats good progress and i feel like i want to go every day now!

meanwhile i got offered 20 hours of research work to be done immediately which means i have a legitimate excuse (ie the making of money) not to look at my chapter for a week. what a shame.

so i am berry happy all round today. nice for a change.

It was lovely to finally catch up with you yesterday! Congrats on the research work, too - always nice to have a proper reason to procrastinate on writing your thesis ;)

And well done with the swimming - you'll be glad to know I actually got on the bike today, and rode up and down the driveway a few times to get my 'pedal legs' back (it's been years since I cycled a lot).

Enjoy your socks and stripey spidey yarn! :)

Oh that berry yarn is so nice. I'm going to have to get some of Ms Spidey's yarn.

I quite like the unstripiness of the socks though. Very pretty.
