Getting nice things in the mail makes you better

First of all thankyou thankyou you lovely readers who left such nice comments on Wee Tweedley. I'm honestly relieved that it's not a total disaster as there was so much winging it going on.

Those of you in my neck of the woods will know that a great cloud of papists descended last week and in their wake they left the Great International Stretching of
Hands Viruses Across the Oceans. Thanks guys.
That's my theory and I'm sticking to it.

I have been so sick with flu all week- and what's left of my mind so addled- that I've barely been able to get past Row 11 in a straightforward cabled beanie I'm making without making the same mistake twice thrice so many times the fibre has almost ceased to exist.
And speaking of existence, I've been extant in parallel universe of Deadwood (all 3 seasons) on DVD. I have to be very careful now not to walk around calling everyone a c*^$@+^$~r . I had to see a specialist this afternoon, can you imagine how that would've been received? Hilarious.
Still, there's always nice things arriving in the mail to cheer us up.
No, not opium or gold nuggets but almost...

A skein of Koigu KPM in dark chocolate (mmmm.. num nums) and a book of
cunningly folded and pleated Japanese skirt patterns awaiting post-flu deciphering

A huge apology to everyone whose blogs and flickr photos I usually comment on, I've been missing what you've all been up to! Back soon.

Hope you're feeling better.

Personally, I always tried to dress my boys like Christopher Robin when they were very young but Enid Blyton would be even better.

Lashings of ginger beer.

ps. yes re the hat! The robin's egg is gorgeous but not on my noggin. Beret's more flattering.
pps. Was jealous to see you came to Melbourne and I didn't know!

Isnt Deadwood superb? thought about trying to incorporate c*cksucker into our wedding vows, but thought that it might lower the tone of the event, not to mention its effect on non-DW viewers and our more elderly relatives.
