There is something I have been mum about

I mentioned a couple of posts back that I hadn't knit a stitch since moving down from Sydney.  That has been rectified - I have cast on for Ailsa's socks.
There has been a good reason for my lack of knitting:

Yep, that's right!  Three (is it wrong to call your unborn child a number?) will be joining us in June, all things going well.

I have been very, very sick and unable to do anything except the very basics of child rearing and laying about on the couch.  It hasn't been easy with Soldier deployed, but I am happy to say that I am on the other side of the morning sickness hill and I am feeling great now.

Indian Summer

My first instalment of the Indian Summer Yarn Club by the wonderful Knitabulous arrived in my mailbox this morning.

I have been eagerly awaiting it's arrival!

The yarn is gorgeous, and the colour couldn't be more perfect for me.  Blue-greens being my favourite colours.

I think I was very restrained in not eating the chocolate or immediately brewing up that wonderful Chai teabag that was in the box.  Having said that the chocolate is in my mouth as I type.  Mmmmmm.

I think I will go and spend what is left of the rest of the night on the couch with some needles.

I'm Baaack!!

Things that have happened since we last spoke:
  1. We have moved states, just to the next one down,
  2. We love our new house, it has tiles instead of 30 year old vinyl on the floors and - get this - a window in the bathroom,
  3. We have unpacked a huge number of boxes, and complained that we have too much stuff,
  4. Soldier discovered the extent of my sock yarn stash, I guess telling him not to open that box was like waving a red flag at a bull,
  5. Soldier has been deployed, to somewhere he hasn't been before,
  6. The Boy has learned eleventy billion new words, his current fav is 'juice'
  7. I haven't knit one single stitch since I left Sydney,
  8. I turned 30 and found my first grey hair on the same day, but had a fabulous day otherwise,
  9. I have become excited about the upcoming changes around here,
  10. I found an excuse to buy a new front loading washing machine (the laundry is too small for our very large old washing maching),
  11. I have yet to discover just what other Melbournites (is that even what you call people who live here?) do with their rubbish, the wheelie bin is so tiny, like it should be in a dolls house,
And lots of other stuff that is just too mundane to list.
