Oh dear, went to see Fame with Shiv and Jacqui… it was OK, but now I need to offset it with something fierce and ruthless… Inglorious Bastards (sp?) maybe…

Feasted on candyfloss (0% fat) while the two pregnant ladies filled the air with the aroma of nachos, jalapenos and pork scratchings… humming.


First of all, get your mnd out of the gutter, thank you!

maisie and I spotted this wee butterfly when we were on a walk near the Glenevin Waterfall in Donegal a couple of weeks ago. Its a Speckled Wood and pretty common, but we love butterflies so here it is.


Very pleased with this week’s weight loss. So celebrated and bought popcorn on way home and watched Point Break last night. CLASS!! Going to see Fame! with my yummy mummies tonight. Cheese fest.

(no i won’t be eating cheese, just watching in)

Found that yarn I was on about below, on Ravelry of course. Where else?


Oh dear, I’d be jogging all day long – out of puff just thinking about it…


ON the train to inverness and back I managed to knit and complete a pair of hand warmers, very chuffed, in a lovely blue alpaca wool my Aunt Marie kindly donated to me (called INCA, made by Hayfield Texiles, can’t find any link to it anywhere so may be discontinued…). Going to keep making these for christmas pressies. Next though, must get back to the socks. Aunt Marie had cast on my first go at them, and now I want to try a smaller size I just can’t get the hang of the casting onto many needles. Patience and determination are 2 key things needed here. Got a mountian of work to climb though… Also sneaked onto Catrionas ww scales yesterday in Inverness, and was horrified, i thought I had been good this week, but turns out they are faulty, and 2lbs must be deducted after every use – so yippee! I hope. Going to weigh in in Kelty tonight, as I missed the Kinross weigh in last night due to Inverness trip. A friendly bunch in a Working Mans Club there.

I do think this pic is a fair representation of Kelty… but imagine more rain.Kelty

and is this heaven???

Finished my other bootee last night (Saartjes Bootees) but just realised that I sewed the seam the wrong way round so will have to unpick it and re-do before I get to use my shell buttons…. Of course, not my fault, I was watching iPlayer, Strictly come dancing, and must have been distracted by some ‘hip action’. Easily done, i can assure you. Then I watched Master Chef: The Professionals, just coz I love cuddly wee Gregg Wallace, he loves a good pudding!
