So... this place has been quite for nearly a year now. And a lot has changed in that year, too. I've moved house, twice, acquired two dogs, had to find a new car when the old one got written off... anyway, the car's not so very exciting, but by reason of the two pups and the house the focus of this blog might change a little.
I'm still knitting, of course, and spinning. But now I'm also the owner of a beautiful, beautiful little terrace house built in 1898 (that's before Australia was even a country, people). It's in pretty good condition, but needs plenty of cosmetic work. So some of that stuff might feature here.
Also, our little family has doubled in size with the acquisition of Lola, then Buddy. Both are pug x cavalier king charles spaniels. Lola, being little, pretty, neurotic, friendly and gentle, was bought from a nice lady as a puppy. Buddy, who is big, fat, lazy, cranky and loves a belly-rub, is a rescue dog. Understandably, these new family members might get the odd mention also. In an unflattering light, if Buddy gets into my spinning fibres again (that god he didn't get through the plastic bags!)
