brass monkey dog

I just gave Lizzy the bone out of the roast we had yesterday for her dinner.  It’s freezing outside and I’d resigned myself to the fact she would probably take the bone into her kennel and make her bedding all stinking.  But surprise! She gave me five, took her bone and ran out to her ‘summer lounge’ – a hessian sack type bed on a metal frame which is lovely and cool in summer and bloody freezing in winter.  It IS her favourite place to eat bones (don’t know why but it is, and there are always bone bits in it) but I can’t believe she wants to sit there.  Silly dog!!!

Lizzy braving the weather to bone munch on her summer bed.  brrrr.

cold and busy

I have been so busy over the past month or so with work, I can’t get over it.  Too much to do and just not enough time to do it.  We’ve been to Perth a few times too, at least that has meant I’ve had plenty of time as a passenger to do some knitting – finished lovely brownish scarf pictured and started on a pistachio tone scarf.  Both scarves are rib, but I’m using smaller needles for the green scarf and doing K1, P1 rather than K2, P2 in the brown scarf which has made it quite bulky and stretchy.  Live and learn anyway.  Loving knitting, I know scarves are hardly tricky but they really jazz an outfit and are easy to make.  Good tasks for driving anyway.

my lovely new scarf, nice knitting don't you think?

I’m learning just how cold it gets here – and caught my first cold of the year, not liking THAT too much.  I’m afraid between work, being sick and family things I have really been neglecting my shop, hopefully the world will settle down in a few weeks and I can get back to it.  Finger’s cross anyway.
