What is that noise?

That noise, my friends, is the death rattle of a Lap top (at least that's what it sounds like to me)
No more listening to my favourite podcasters, I have to put the telly on. Well at least till the lappy goes to the doctors, that will hopefully happen tomorrow. It went west yesterday morning when I was on a call to my sister, but it was Knit and Natter in the afternoon and I had to prioritise.

People come first.

Not to mention the fact that there was cake.

Jammy doughnuts, swoon.

Triple chocolate cookies, drool.

Blueberry muffins, Oh My.

But we are not going to mention cake.

The talented Tina of Loobylou Yarns brought in a basket full of her Homespun, Oh My Word it is drop dead gorgeous (she has a shop so pop on over and have a look. Just don't buy it all)

If I end up able to spin yarn that is half as good I will be a happy bunny.

I must not mention the cake.

The sun has been shining on and off most of the day and now it is glorious, just right for walking Ben and Rufus before dinner.

I finished the socks today and am working on the next WIP in line. That WILL be finished tonight and then there is just my blue cardigan and the SO's Aran weight Flax sweater. I have an Andi Satterlund pattern clamouring to be knit, and the light green yarn to knit it in. I WILL be strong and finish the WIPs first though. I just know that this will be a monogamous knit, it is Miette which is now free on Ravelry, I want one in at least 3 colours.

Most of the prep has been done in the sitting room, fingers crossed it will all be put to rights by the weekend.

I must drink my tea now and get the dogs on their respective leads for a gentle walk in the sunshine. Life is good.

PS. I have to mention the cake. I was good only the one doughnut, it was light and fluffy and oozing jam. yummy yum yum.


  1. Don't mention the cake!! lol

    Hope you can get the laptop sorted soon.

  2. Cake? You had cake? What fun!!!
    Sounds like you have a lot of good projects going. Any more dresses in the meantime?
    Sorry about your laptop. Hope you can get it back to life. Sometimes, it's cheaper to buy a new PC laptop than it is to fix one. My Apple Laptop is in the cupboard, only use it when necessary. I have an iPad which does nicely as does my desktop. iPad travels with me when we take trips.
    Hope the doggies enjoyed their walks. Mine are having their adoration quotient met by my adult daughter who's here visiting from Chicago. They will miss her when she goes back home.

  3. Oh a jammy donut sounds wonderful...drool....

  4. Mmmmmm jammy doughnuts! Fingers crossed your laptop makes it xx

  5. Please always mention cake! :) And donuts...haven't had a good donut in a long time!!
