I saw news of a man who was 106 years old and still knitting. He lives at home and mostly looks after himself. "He knits," said the newsreader, " and credits knitting with keeping his brain active." Evidence of his knitting could be seen in the many rugs he had made which covered the lounge and other chairs. He said he knitted every day.
Yesterday I went to my grandchildren's school for Grandparents' Day. Lots of people there, more each year, so the principal said. Each group of classes performed an item and we looked in the class rooms.
My son is still off work after the mugging, although he's improving, so he picked me up from the station. School is in the western suburbs and I don't know my way around there well.
After morning tea, I made my way out to Penrith where Lynnehad taken me a couple of weeks ago to have tapestries framed. They were ready to be picked up. I'm really happy with the results and may try a couple of photos later. Not sure how they'll turn out as each is wrapped in cellophane.
Right now, installers for my airconditioner are due. They were supposed to be here two days ago, but had a job to finish which had been interrupted by rain last week. I'm having it in the bedroom only so I can use it on those nights when sleep is hard because of the heat. I can cope during the day and we almost always have a breeze here.
