Rain, rain, rain!!!

It has been raining so much these last few days. My husband got stuck at work, he wasn't able to make it home, after doing a 12hour shift, due to the road having flooding. He finally got home at about 11am. The sun did make an appearance today, which was really nice, but the river in town is up quite high. Our section had so much water on it, I don't think it can take anymore. Now I also have hayfever!!! Making my nose itchy, my eyes itchy, and I'm sneezing quite a lot. At least it's not asthma, don't want that again.
These are the latest pictures of my handsome grandsons. William is the red-head - isn't he cute. I love his hair colour. To think he is nearly one year old already!!! Noah is nearly six months old. He looks just like his dad - my son - did at that age. So like father, like son!!

Man flu'

It struck this weekend. Husband came home from work on Friday with it. He spent all day Saturday in bed with it. Upon only giving a cup of soup for lunch, he decided on Sunday that he could get out of bed. He has a cold - but the male version of the cold - so that means he is really not well. Why don't we females get our version of 'man flu'? I know we do - it's called continuing our work, and not going to bed, even if we really need to. To much to do, not enough time to do it. Am on a bootee knitting time at the moment. Have a handsome grandson that needs them. As it is starting to get cold down there in Christchurch, I need to get cracking on them. Already have three pair made, don't know how many I will make. I really want to make the 'Bigger on the Inside' shawl that it currently up on Knitty. I am a Dr Who fan, and this looks just what I need to make next. Maybe I can make this my last pair of bootees, and start the shawl? Hey it works for me!! I have some blue wool I can use, too. Should do the job just nicely.

Glad today is over... least where work is concerned. After three days of stocktake, I am seriously over it. At least I was able to get it completed, though. Thank goodness. Wouldn't have been able to without the help of one of my work colleagues, though. She was very helpful.
Now to work out what I am going to knit. Am bored with all the things I currently have on the needles, which is bad I know. I am not supposed to start something new, but I can hear shawls calling out to me. Don't know which one just yet, but I know it's there.

Long time no post

Cripes, has it been that long since I last posted here?!?!? Wow, time goes fast!!!
I am now a grandmother, of a really cute grandson. Will be again in a couple of weeks, too, with second grandson due then.
Been not very busy on the knitting front, lost a little interest. Need to get back in to it. Especially with two little ones to knit for. Am trying really hard to get things finished that have been on the needles for quite some time. That is an ongoing issue with me. Will be all the time, I think. Too many nice patterns to do, and not any where enough time to do them all. Stash isn't really shrinking, though. You'd think it would after all this time. I am quite convinced that it grows all by itself.
That's my story, and I'm sticking to it.
