Can you believe we're already in to the second day of March? What happened? Where did the time go? Did someone set the clock on fast forward again? Own up... Who did it? Was it you?
It hasn't been nearly as noisy here the past couple of days. It's been noisy enough that you can be left in no doubt that the workmen are out there, but quiet enough that I can hear what I'm trying to hear, so actually have the option to do whatever I want rather than being forced to just do what can be done without being able to hear, if you know what I mean. I'm told that the workmen are almost done with the work they're doing out there. I hope so! I also hope they don't need to come back for a very, very long time!
I spent the day with Mam and Emma-Jane yesterday. We went to run an errand that Mam needed to run, then went to McDonalds, where Emma-Jane enjoyed a chicken nugget happy meal, Mam had some other chicken meal, and I had a veggie burger with chips/fries (the only vegetarian option they do as a meal once breakfasts stop). And after that we went and spent the afternoon at Mam's place with Wayne and Willow.
Emma-Jane is getting really big, and really smart. She can walk properly - though she keeps falling due to attempting to run and not getting it quite right - and she already says loads of things. Like how she will say, "star," is you start singing, "twinkle, twinkle, little..." then stop for her to complete the line (she also does the last word of each of the other lines in the song). She can't string more than two words together yet, but I think she's doing fantastically for a baby of her age (she's about 11 and a half months old now). I mean, she can manage to string together two word sentences, like, "good girl," and "what's that?" which is good for a baby of her age, I think. I also love how if you pick her up - or bend down to her - and say, "love you," she'll give you a kiss, then give you a hug while saying, "awwww!" (often adding another kiss afterwards).
I did get a photo yesterday... Mam took it on her mobile phone and sent it to mine via bluetooth, then I e-mailed it to myself so as to get it on to my laptop... But I haven't had a chance to ask someone to sort it out for me yet, so I'll post it on here another time.
After I got home I basically just walked Kero, had some food, watched some TV for a bit, then went to bed. Yep... Still sleeping at night (at the moment).
As of yesterday I've added another project to my to do list... Louise (Emma-Jane's Mother) spotted a scarf I'd made my Mam when she was fetching Emma-Jane yesterday, and she asked if I'd make her one, so I said I would. Scarves knit up pretty quickly anyway. I just have to grab the right colours, because I'm out of the two pinks I used in it, and she wants it the same colours as Mam's one was knitted in. I also used a couple of different stitches to make a bit of a pattern with it, so I'll have to borrow the scarf off my Mam to see what I did. I meant to bring it home with me yesterday, actually, but I completely forgot about it until it was too late and I was at home. I'm seeing Mam tomorrow though, so maybe she can bring it with her then? If not, then there's plenty of time for her to get it to me before I'm ready to do it, since I need to finish Mam's throw(s) first anyway. I can't promise it will be 100% the same, but I'll do my best to make it as close as I possibly can to Mam's one for her.
As for today... Well, today I've just been alternating between working on my knitting projects, and catching up on the blog posts I didn't get a chance to read yesterday. I'm terrible for getting at least a day or so behind on blog posts lately... Sorry about that!
So, that has basically been what's happened the past couple of days. Well, other than boring things like housework, which I'm sure you don't really want to hear about.
