I'm also working hard on getting a baby blanket crocheted up for a gift for one of the girls in my team who will be leaving in a few weeks time. Hope to have it finished this week.......... The summer shawl has been set aside for me to work on this, but hoping to finish off the shawl sometime during the month.
Pete was away again this weekend - off fishing/ camping with blokes from the fishing club here at Bundalong. He's been having a great time the past few months with so many times away camping and fishing (males only). He managed to catch another Cod this weekend that was a keeper, so the freezer has quite a stash of fish in it at present! With Pete having had 3 or 4 weekends the last part of last year and 3 out of 6 weekends away so far this year ....... I'm struggling with some green eyes and a spirit that is dying to be able to head off somewhere ......... just wish I could actually plan something in advance, but alas with not knowing just when we will be making the big move, its hard to make plans!!
Every 2nd year I enjoy a particular book that I tend to like reading over the summer months for some strange reason ........ "A Town Like Alice" by Neville Shute. It's quite an older book now, my copy is falling apart - and is currently packed in a box 2 states away lol .... the story is based on a little bit of reality that occurred during the war. I finally decided I needed to borrow it from the library and started reading it last night in bed - its amazing how a good book can transport you into such a good state of mind and body isn't it. Of course this book was also made into a movie - one of these days I should try and get hold of it on DVD so I can watch it again! There never seems to be enough hours in the day for everything we need and would like to do is there? I've got quite a list of things that need doing - like using up the 20 litres of olive oil I have waiting to be made into soap. Its really only good for making soap with and I know it wont be allowed on the truck when we move, so it needs to be transformed into something that can be used or easily transported!
