Girls day out
Monday was Girls Day Out before my two nieces headed back west. C. is their mother, B. our sister. We wandered the few open shops on Locke St. and after failing to find any seats at the Starbucks ended up at the West Town Bar and Grill for our coffee and snack.
Dentist yesterday morning, tooth all fixed and then to see Tron at the theatre with Paul and Stephen. It's one of those movies that needs to be seen on the big screen. We all enjoyed it although I did find it rather loud. Ears were still ringing when I got home.
Our last VCR has finally broken down and after discovering there is nothing out there as a replacement it looks like repair or do without. Paul really relied on it during Formula 1 season and it's going to be hard to decide between programmes I like when they overlap. With this new computer I will be able to access some of the shows but I'm hoping he gets the machine up and running and then decides which way he wants to go with newer technology.
I haven't stored away my crochet hook yet having successfully finished the shawl/shrug project and having used the remaining yarn for a scarf I gave to Beth-Anne ( she had admired my colour choice ). The biggest challenge now is finding something simple enough for me to make. I did find a website with beginner patterns and online tutorials that I will watch and watch until things make sense. I really am a visual learner.
