Danger broken glass!

Angus accidently knocked my very large shell vase off the kitchen bench this morning. It made a huge crash and big mess. He was very upset for most of the day despite me assuring him that accidents happen. Luckily I have a spare vase and after a bit of glueing of the shell balls I'll be able to put it all right.

The scene of the mess. I had glass splattered across four rooms and it took nearly an hour to ensure it was all gone. Luckily no tiles were cracked either.

This afternoon I did a few more hours of stitching and my TW Guardian is at 60 hours

I need sleep!

After a couple of unsettled nights I'm really tired. Seeing as Angus has gone to his Dad's for the next 2 days I'm thinking of going to bed shortly and then sleeping in.

No stitching today but I posted the RR off to Canada. Maybe tomorrow I'll do some more on Guardian.

It's Monday and the first day of Spring

Started the day well with my weekly weigh in and have lost 3kg :) so diet is working and will reward myself as promised with a Pandora bead. I'm thinking this one:

Seashell charm

Another bead at 95kg - so 3 more to lose.

It was a busy day at work, lots of paperwork the usual emails, phone calls and faxes to deal with. Then I got to play with a Primary class as they quizzed me about Space and Gravity.

Had a brief nap before picking up Angus and getting into the usual evening routine. Angus chose to watch a David Attenborough episode of "Life in Cold Blood", lots of pretty froggies. I finished off my Winter Neighborhood RR piece for posting tomorrow while watching it with him. Here it is:

My WNRR ready to start it's world travels :)

After Angus went to bed I did an hour or so on my TW Guardian. Monday being the TW Stitch along day. Here he is at 48 hours:

Only 2 more hours to go on the border then back to stitching the main picture. I've decided every 10 hours to work on the border for 10 hours. The border is actually quite easy to stitch I think.
