Well, there is sun today...

Such as it is, still coldy oldy, but sun all the same.

Unfortunately, I´m stuck in the house again. Luey was supposed to go back to school today but had a bit of a temp and a rotten cough this morning, and I REALLY need him to be better by Saturday because Bryn´s birthday cake has been ordered, so if I have to cancel the party, we´ll be eating cake for breakfast, lunch and dinner the whole weekend. I´m sure the boys wouldn´t mind, mind you...

I got some fluffy mail the other day; two smart arses (aka bum geniuses) and a twinklelily. The BGs are great, though wider in the crotch than I'd imagined, but I was just having a second, longer look at the Twinklelily, and it's MARVELLOUS!!! It's so trim, and so well cut and yet promises to be super-duper absorbent for heavy wetters, and at under $30 for an AIO, it's pretty good value, too. Cannot wait to try it for wear...

Have also ordered some bamboo and alpaca yarns from the local wool shop. More expensive than buying at the source, but also the benefits of being able to buy smaller samples for small projects. Won't see hide nor hair of those yarns till next week, despite the shop being less than a 10 minutes ride from here, hahaha, but hey when you're stuck in the house, you don't have much choice, especially when nesting decides to kick in...

Really need to get my photos archived off this computer so I can download the stuff sitting on my camera already...
