I am SO excited! Tonight I am going to the ballet with my bestest friend, Miss Looby Lou...hurrah! We are off to see the St Petersburg Ballet Theatre perform Giselle and for someone who rarely goes out this is a major cause for excitement. Add to that the sheer beauty, grace and the wonderful ethereal quality of the dance and you can tell I am just about bursting at the very thought!
Be still my beating heart. So how can I fill my hours till then? I could chop some more wood to replace the somewhat damp wood I chopped yesterday.
I could knit some more of this crazy coloured ball of wool which I am making some socks for myself with...yes, I know I said never again, but dave bought the wool and I wanted some socks and my feet are only little (size 4 to be precise).
Mind you, I'm not sure I like the effect so very much. bit like an explosion in a paint facory isn't it? I was hoping for nice neat rows of bright colour as a bit of variation to my usual soft tonal range, but typically it is too random for that. Hey ho, a change is as good and all that.
I could curl up with a slice of the cake I baked yesterday - carrot but with loads of orange zest, chopped walnuts and cinammon this time as I didn't have enough lemons for lemon cake due to the grog Dave had made - and read this wonderful, always inspirational magazine given by the sweetest of ladies. It will be posted off for dear Lauren after as it is her very favourite magazine and is really intended for her.
I will have to work on making one of these for an order to be posted today.
Or I could take a leaf out of Tiger Lily's book and snuggle down under the quilt for a snooze in a pool of warm sunlight. Hmm, yes I agree: fat chance, eh?
Ah well, no doubt plenty will fill my time until the curtain rises....aaahhhh.
Have a lovely weekend x
