I mentioned I was doing a small Aestlight shawl with some 5 ply of unknown length. I am quite unsure just how far the yarn will go, so have decided to turn it into a neckerchief, for want of a better term Definitely not a shawlette. Eeeuw! Not a pleasant word to write, look at or say.
I'm gradually getting what I need here. I think the only major purchase left will be bookshelves for the spare room. I've priced some which are sturdy and reasonable to look at but need to arrange for not only delivery but someone here to help with the delivery. Oh, I also need a sofa bed which looks fine, is comfortable, well made, and easy to use. I haven't yet looked for one at all.
My son scored a new TV for me on ebay and I hope the delivery is today. I've been tracking it and it should be. He paid $243 for something which is over $400 retail and it costs another $39 to come from Melbourne. All bells and whistles on it, live pause or whatever it's called, flat screen, lots of other letters too denoting what he says are good features. 32" which is fine for the size of the room and for me too. I don't like the room to look dominated by the screen and I don't watch it for hours on end. I haven't watched TV for 17 months now so am right out of the habit. However, I think that with winter rapidly approaching it will be pleasant to be cosy knitting and watching. Particularly as I'll be by myself most of the time.
I bought some wine which was also delivered today by a very rude Aust. Post courier. Am hoping the next delivery will be more pleasant. At least he did deliver it. My last delivery by one of those couriers did not even rate a ring at the security door downstairs. Even though it was a small package, it was taken straight to PO and I had to collect it. I was not very happy, he didn't even say which PO and there are three all much the same distance from here. He also carefully did not put his name or truck number on the card left.
I think my poor toe is making a bit of progress. I've had shoes on most of the day and it feels reasonable. I'll lose the nail and am not sure whether there will ever be another nail grown with the damage to the toe, but the I believe the toe was itself also broken. That bit seems to be recovering and about time too.
