New Neighbour

This little guy is hanging on our roof.  Just outside our back door these days.  Wasn't bothered by us underneath.  Only a little one!

Birthday Party-ish

BJ's birthday party wasn't your average kids party.  He didn't want one.  

So having told us that a few weeks ago we came up with some other ideas on what we could do together instead.  

He chose the Queen Victoria Museum.  It was going to be a big day anyway, so it turned out OK that we didn't do it on his actual birthday in the end with him under the weather still then.  He wouldn't have enjoyed it at all.  

So today we had a road trip & quite a few hours at the museum.  

We had done a bit of research on what was being shown at the moment.  He was really keen to see the World War 1 display & also the ship that sunk.  Mostly he was interested in "The Blacksmith Shop".   Lucky for us, being there on a Sunday, we got the tour of the blacksmith shop which was good.  He was really pleased about that.  

A great time there & then lunch at a place in the area that he also loves so that was the makings of a great birthday!  

Oh & I must not forget the party bags which was actually a few things we picked at the Museum shop, so both BJ & DJ got to enjoy those bonuses.

He's 9

What turned out to be a quieter than expected day...

He hadn't been well & was still a bit weary from his cold, so we chose to stay home today instead.  He didn't mind.  He of course had new presents to play with.  Even a present from the dog & another from the chooks.  See if you can guess which ones they were!

He was quite spoilt of course.

He chose pizza for tea which included his grandparents that were available.  A great day even if not feeling 100%.

I'm excited to finally be finished this pretty socks!  

I did have to play "yarn chicken" to finish them though!  Ekkk...  It was rather close.  I only had the 2 heels to go.  I had 13 grams of yarn left.  Was it going to be enough?  


Yay!  I still had the little bit of 3 grams left.  

Quite pleased with my first attempt at cable patterned socks.  They weren't hard at all.  & quite effective.

Little Bit Of Play

I've been around about!  Just been knitting stuff.  Lots of stuff.  

But I did squeeze in a couple more pillows today.  My little neighbour girls have birthdays coming up, so I saved myself time & did them both at the same time.  Not quite what I had in mind but they look pretty & cute for little ones as they are.
