life has been incredibly hectic around here of late, and even though I've been online, checking in with everyone else's events, I seem to somehow have forgotten to add a post along the way!
Here's a quick update:
Lily turned 9, in what has to have been the LONGEST celebration ever, commencing with getting her ears pierced way back on the 28th of April, and culminating in a big birthday dinner at her favourite restaurant tomorrow night. So far there's been 2 cakes, one more to go to school tomorrow (her actual birthday) and there will possibly be one more at dinner tomorrow night! Phew! Can't wait for the 21st, if this is any indicator.
She had a dozen school friends over for a party somewhere in the middle, which was a hill of fun for all concerned, mostly the adults. 9 year old girls are hilariously funny!
Today she got one of her presents, one she's been wishing on for 12 months.
Lucy is a nearly-eight-week-old Rex guinea pig, and she's fast wormed her way into our hearts. So much so that I was found knitting her a companion so she wouldn't feel lonely without her litter-sisters, and here it is, 10pm, and I have just come back inside from checking on the temperature of her heat sack :) I've also popped an old woollen jumper of Lily's in the sleeping compartment of her hutch, lest she chills during the evening, and there's a tarp over the open area of the hutch to stop the drafts!
I just love this shot - the stunned look on the pig's face nearly kills me! This was right before she wee-d all over Lily's lap :)I'm knitting away madly on my niece's first birthday jumper, hoping I'll make the deadline of May 23rd (eek!) No photos, at least until I give it to her, as her Mum has recently outed herself as a blog-lurker! (you could check it out over on Ravelry, if you've got the golden ticket, though)
Somewhere else in amongst all this, I got a sweet parcel of fabric from Justine, just because!
loving it silly, Jus - thanks!
There, just like the fast-tracking of Days of our Lives, I think we're all in sync and up to date. I'd like to promise it won't be so long next time between drinks, but really, who knows?!
