So yesterday W met up with his best friend A, and i stayed home, watched the first episode of 30 days (which is brilliant btw) and finished the first of the lace socks, made with the plum coloured merino I brought back from Florence. (Unfortunately they’re christmas presents so i’m going to hold back on actually posting photos for a while…)
Anyways W came home and let me know that it’s A’s wife’s birthday (my lovely friend J) on sunday, which is on the one hand great, because I was woolly about the date and now i know it and can add it to my birthday list, yay! but also bum, because whatever happens it’s going to be a day or too late.
So this morning, while W rebuilt his road bike, I curled up with my laptop to work out what to make her, (since i’m good for time, but not really for money right now.)
I’m all ideaed up, and as a bonus have started adding useful links to my del.icio.us account.
But it will all have to wait since W and I are off to go find ourselves a desk at one of the second-hand furniture places we know. And, bonus that means swinging by one of my favourite cafes in the city for lunch. (last time we had a tropical fruit curry with huge chunks of plantain and watermelon in it – so healthy and cheap!)
We’re planning to turn the box room (our first room when W originally co-bought the house), into an office so that we can move the computer and hopefully all my craft stuff upstairs. The next step in us sorting out the house.

Hopefully I’ll still have time to start J’s present tonight. Photos later…
