double woops...

....yes, I know I said tht I'd post properly last night. I forgot. I also went to bed early... And yes, I said I'd take pics - so artfully arranged yarn and things on my dining table this morning, and - ta-daaaa - flat batteries....no camera cable....bad blogger...

So, I leave you with:

a massive wheel (from memory I think it may have weighed just over 1 kilogram...) of stinky blue cheese that we transported to Rottnest one year (we go every winter, for a week of guffawing and thunderstorms and wine).... "That's a lot of cheese!!" I hear you say - it had to last us for SEVEN days, and there WAS quite a few of us.... hey, why am I trying to justify cheese consumption?? We enjoyed it a LOT - in soup, on crackers, in wedges the size of small rodents (get it? cheese? rodents???), on fingers, with wine, with breakfast cereal....I think we even experimented with strange and exotic cheese sushi rolls towards the end of the week, in a "waste not want not" binge....


...this may have been taken just minutes after the first....


- and a nostalgic shot - My Dad and me, just days after I was born. Dad had come home from Vietnam just days before (he was drafted to go and fight, but was allowed home three months early on compassionate grounds, so that he could be there for my birth). This pic makes me teary every time I look at it, he was so young, and I wonder what must have been going through his mind at the time....

Alrighty then, enjoy your weekend, knit lots! Tomorrow I'm off to Jules' parents' 50th wedding anniversary - I'm going to be a serving wench - what a happy day!!!!

See you soon,
Me
