Since then we have attended a funeral of a very dear friend who made it to 80. He had a great life but it was sad to hear that he had passed on, hopefully to a lovely place to be with his wife. Today we heard that another friend's father had passed away recently also which was heartbreaking so we will be having another funeral to attend shortly. I guess the upside to funerals is that you get to say goodbye and reminisce with all their loved ones about them so it does help to ease the pain a little.
My car has also been giving me havoc by breaking down yet again, and dont tell me we need another car because it is definately not in our budget at the moment. The transmission decided to stop working so I decided to give up the house cleaning position so it would be easier on the car. I am now looking for something more full time and less driving, fingers crossed something appears soon. I was considering going to train to be a teacher's aide but apparently you have to find a position before you start as they dont want to waste money on training you.
So after all that depressing life stuff which seems to be very relevant around here at the moment unfortunately, we have had a some nice news. My SIL who had the twins nearly a year and a half ago now is expecting another bundle of joy in September. We are all hoping she has a girl this time as there are only 2 girls in our family. I have been trying to decide what to knit up but havent really decided as yet what I will knit unless she tells us what she is having. I havent really been into knitting baby knits at the moment.
Up above is a photo of one of my current items in progress, the Ten Ten Cardigan. I am knitting it out of some Sirdar Aran Supersoft that I had in my stash and it is quite squishy and soft. I am nearly up to the armholes but I have been knitting things in between instead which still are not properly sewn up or had buttons added. I am also still using my mum's laptop at the moment and have not decided as yet what to do with mine, whether to get it rebuilt with a larger screen or just buy a laptop and hope that does everything I want it to do. Lachlan keeps advising me about different things but I think it is more for his convenience than my own, lol! If you have any ideas please let me know as I really have had the one computer for nearly 8 years now so advice would be very welcome.
Okay until next time!
