Vlog 3: Knitting Update

In this quick show and tell – I proudly natter on about yarn and my recently finished projects.

The whole world’s come undone

It was the weeks ago… Was it really three weeks ago? Time is a blur now. I was home and feeling rubbish – the sinusitis was really causing me great discomfort, and I had already told the office I was going to be working from home “until this all blew over”. My blue inhaler was…

Smelling the roses

Two years ago or so, I bought a couple of Albertine roses in the clearance bin at The Warehouse for $3.97 each. They looked really sorry, their roots were packed with sawdust, and I wasn’t sure they’d grow. But for less than $4 for climber. Well… And this year, they finally flowered. And they are…

Is this thing still on?

Holy amazeballs batman – are you still here? Yeah, ah, it’s been a while and I kinda fell off the bandwagon with life and stuff. But I’m back. I promise. So. We’re back in the 20’s. Happy new decade! This is going to be full of inane chatter, the occasional vlog, and photos, so pull…

Fanuilos, le linnathon nef aear, sí nef aearon!

It’s my last night in my beloved place in Thorndon. I’ve been here for 4 years. It’s the longest time at a single address since I left the nest. I have always loved this suburb, and I’ve spent the last few weeks walking around with a smile and appreciating the magnolias and cherry blossoms, the…
