We've had no heat for days. Were bad and let the oil level get low. And not even an emergency oil pack is allowing the boiler to cough up.

You can see your breath inside in the mornings. And our olive oil has congealed.

Have re-discovered the joys of vests and fingerless gloves.


But all hail King Padzor, for he brought home a borrowed halogen heater. Toasty!

Hey kidlets!

I bought a Wii. Didn't really intend to but was walking past Woolworths just as they put up the signs that said they had some in stock :-)

So much fun! I kicked ass at bowling, padzor  ruled at baseball and hello_chris  beat us soundly at golf, boxing and tennis. New housemate Peter (aka Boy-Debs) apparently has a Wii age of 59. Will have to see if I can beat that.

Embarassing photos and or Youtube videos coming soon. Y'all are invited to come play.

Yarn: Noro Kuryeon (4 x 50g skeins in colourway 154)
Pattern: http://www.yarn-shop.co.uk/free-patterns/noro-scarf.php

Behind the cut are some pictures of the scarf. Very good fun to knit, and an excellent pattern to ease you into shortrows. It was good to watch my mother pick up my knitting to try and figure out how the pattern worked.

Roo and I scrumped some apples* and made them into proto-cider. 'Tis bubbling away quite nicely now. Check back with me in December or so to see if it tastes nice :-)



* And rather less excitingly begged some from my parents. And bought some from the Co-op. Making cider takes more apples than you'd think...

I have knitted several little hats for Innocent's Supergran charity drive. Mostly made from Noro scraps, with a little Lamb's Pride Worsted and random acrylic.

See here for details: http://www.innocentdrinks.co.uk/supergran/

Which one do you like best? (Photo after the cut)

Rules for life (#1 in a series)

Try not to be the only ninja at a Pirates and Ninjas party.




Woe is me.

I went jogging today. First time ever. It nearly killed me (seriously, my throat still feels cheesegrater-y).

I'm going again tomorrow.


In other news, QUB is full of students again. Start of a new semester, and I get the supremely happy task of going stationery shopping.


Two films that I've seen recently that I'd like to recommend:

1) Children Of Men

2) An Inconvenient Truth



Gnight. Off to eat yummy stew prepared by a roo.

I made a hedgepig cake for a good cousin who is returning from Spain tomorrow.

Look behind the cut for the picture and a few other random phone photos.Collapse )
