THIS LIFE

GOLD SOCK YARN?

I was looking on Etsy and came across a very pretty hand spun and hand dyed yarn. It was 156g and 700 yds. The asking price was $90!!!! I wrote and asked if that was an error. The reply I got told me that no, it wasn't an error. Someone's having a laugh, are they not? Mind you, I wouldn't be surprised if someone with more money than sense bought it.


A CRYING SHAME

I happened across a blog message form a person calling themselves Kniterella who encouraged the blog owner to abuse her child. They said that their father beat them with a belt and it didn't harm them and they do not believe hitting and beating children is abuse. Of course, as long as they believe this, or kid themselves that they do, they never have to face the fact that their father abused them and the pain that causes. I was still astonished that in 2009 a person would write this and not see the evil inherent in it.

SWIM

I did a lunch time a swim today. Just half my usual, as yesterday. It was painful. I won't do the lunchtime session again though. Full of wankers.

DOG STUFF

Dudley went to his new home yesterday. Over 200 miles away. The lady who bought him cried as she took him away because she thought his mum would miss him. She won't, she couldn't care less. Shameless is an excellent mum but at 4 week sof age she tells em to *** off, enough. Thank you very much. Anyway, I think Dudley is going to be spoiled rotten. A very nice person.


As things stand I am still going to attend Cruft's. I will make my final decision on Thursday.

I have been training the three left to walk on their own in the busy town centre. Meaning I take each one on their own, on the lead. Just a short distance. People stop and ooh and aah at them. Mostly men, you may be surprised to learn. One of them, a big over 6ft foot bloke, was talking to her about how pretty she was and giving him kisses. Juts silly talk. It was a pleasure to witness. another man, who one would not want to meet in a dark alley, stopped and did the same. What a pretty fluffy thing he said. One just can never tell. This is of course all very good for the puppies socialization an is why I take them into town.

KNITTING

I have finished EDGAR and am just waiting for it to dry. another knit/purl patterned sweater done with the GC on the Brother 940. I have another on the go. I have almost finished the Blue Faced Leicester / Nylon socks and am well into the first sock of the merino/bamboo pair.


BODY TALK

I am generally feeling better now that I am taking better care of myself. Not so knackered. Am having to take more pain meds but still feel better than I was feeling. I guess exhausting myself really does make it ten times worse. I was beginning to seriously think here was something else wrong with me. My blood work is back and it shows I am okay. Elizabeth is concerned about my cholesterol but it is HDL 1.5 (56) and LDL 3.2 (119) with triglycerides at .6. I would have thought these were good figures. As it is I take 15mg Crestor a day and I don't really want to take more.


I was rather angry with the medium we saw work on Sunday. They were crap and arrogant enough not to know it. It wasn't that they were not connecting, they were, but were being very lazy and joining the dots and missing important things. A recently widowed woman was their, my friend, and he spoke to her and left her hanging because he messed her message up. This work is so important, far too important for people to use it as an ego trip and cause people pain like this.
