No pics yet – I keep forgetting to take my camera! So far a lovely time with family, it’s embarrassing how much sleep I need
Went to Ikea today – oh, I LOVE Ikea!! Saw a bed that would be perfect – but mostly I’m in deep desperate LOVE with a their clever storage solutions. And this table and chairs set: Oh, to not have to eat dinner on my lap – really, that’s not too much to want from civilisation, is it?
Haven’t found the good fabric shops yet… but I did buy some cheap 100% cotton at Ikea for another version of the trapeze dress – $3.99 metre!
My brother and his family live in the inner east of Adelaide, which is very beautiful. lots of old stone houses, leafy trees, and the river just a short walk away. Bidgee the Border Collie takes me for a walk every day to play “Stick in river” – not a complex game, here are the rules:
Tell dog to find a stick! FIND A STICK!
Throw stick in river.
Dog dives fearlessly into river, retrieves, and races past you with the stick, dropping it anywhere from 20 to 50 metres away (this is the human exercising feature of the game)
Repeat until either a) too dark to see river, dog, or stick or
b) your arm falls off.
I miss Mr Beloved A LOT, and have to speak on the phone to Constance J. Woodle each day, but I’m having a lovely time.
