By the time I had woken up, had breakfast, hoovered the lounge and showered it was time for my waxing appointment. My appointment was at Be Waxed and Be Tanned with Phoebe who was a very down to earth local girl. She was able to tell me about some of the backpackers in Byron which will be useful when I book accommodation for Castell and suggested places I should visit. I shall be recommending this place to Alice when I get back.
I then decided that it was time I had my nails done too so I popped round to Nail Bar Cafe and made an appointment for 3pm. I had a couple of hours til then so I found the only charity shop and had a mooch in there. Managed to find some small needles and a ball of wool so that I can teach Elsie to knit – or at least try too! I then met Alice in the supermarket for a spot of shopping in her lunch hour and she took my shopping back in the car! And then I was hungry so I went to a pub for lunch. The cider was great, cold, clear and crisp.
The burger was fine but there was too much extra stuff in it – bacon, onions, cheese, carrot, lettuce, cucumber and tomatoe! All a bit too much even for me and I couldn’t eat it all! I then made my way to the nail bar and had my toes nails painted a lovely shade of red! I won’t post a picture of them just in case any one with a red toe nail foot fetish is reading this – whoops sorry that was so last year!
After supper I decided that I was going to finish the first square of Elsie’s throw so I got the room tidier, put a film on my iPad and settled into some solid knitting. Well, I must be out of practise as I managed to watch the whole of “Algorithm:The Hacker Movie” and almost all of “‘Murder on Flight 502” before I had finished the square. I must confess I made a few mistakes that had to be unpicked and done again but I was determined to get it done. It was just before midnight when I completed it.

Let’s hope that the first square was the most complicated and the rest will be plain sailing. Good to see you are pampering yourself a little. My favourite ‘old’ feel good films are Hobsons Choice and Harvey – ah! Xx
I have just checked the pattern and I think a couple of the squares with cables in them may be a little more time consuming but square three should be quite straightforward once I have the pattern set. I also find that the square go quicker the more of them I have done as I remember some of the pattern but we shall see! X
