Older and Wiser?
From Brad I got perfume (Beyond Paradise) and a couple of books. I've started reading one of the books "1000 Places to See Before You Die" and I love it. The only problem is.... I want see it all! Actually, I've only read about 10 entries so far (it starts in England) and they all sound so good. I mean, they're places I've never even heard of but now I want to go (as well as all the other places on my list). Maybe it wasn't such a good idea to get this book!
Some of the other gifts I got included clothes, book & bookmark, body products, dvds, locket and knitting bag. Thank you to everyone!
In knitting news, I finished the watermelon hat for Charlotte (I'll post some photos before I send it). I also ripped back my icarus shawl AGAIN but this time I'm back on track (yes, I'm sure). This year we've decided to send back our Christmas presents economy parcel post which takes about 4-6 weeks (I think you can see where I'm heading with this). That's right, we have to have our Christmas presents organised by the end of October (only about 9 weeks). That means that I need to do some serious Christmas knitting between now and then. I finished a small knitted gift for Jo and have ordered some yarn to make a cardigan for Charlotte. There are a few other gifts on my list but I guess they are going to remain secret until Christmas.
Finally, we bought tickets to see the Rolling Stones in October! I can't wait. The funny thing is dad told me he saw the Rolling Stones when they came to Australia before he and mum were married. Almost 40 years ago!
