An even quieter day today. I was on Auntie duty from 7:30am as Alice and Jon had to go up to the Gold Coast for Doctors visits – all okay! By the time I got back to the house I was feeling a bit under the weather so I used that as an excuse to sit on the sofa knitting and watching Judge Judy on TV! I managed to completed nearly two squares..
As you can see I am 1 1/2 squares from finishing the first strip. Which I am aiming to do before I go to Melbourne!
The next strip doesn’t have quite so many complicated squares so should be relatively quick to knit up!
I did manage to get some washing done, do a bit of shopping and try and catch up with organising my Melbourne trip. I have now booked the airport transfers so just need to get up early on Thursday! I also checked out some of the wool shops and one of them has closed down – fortunately it was one of the farthest from where I am staying so will cut down traveling time. I am also trying to group them togetherness so I can perhaps visit 3 per day!? I would also like to visit Penguin Island and tour the Great Ocean Road which is apparently very beautiful! So that means two of the days will be touring if I can book tickets! Is m getting quite excited.
Also, I need to visit Kew Cemetery where some of my relatives on my Dad’s side are buried but fortunately it is near to two of the wool shops! Finally, I got an email from Dad saying that my research was correct and I do have relatives that went to Brisbane! He also found another relative on Ancestry that I didn’t know about so I got all excited again and spent a good couple of hours doing more research! I will send Dad my results so he can verify them for me. You never know I may find a living one that I can meet up with!
Here is a quote from Judge Judy :”If you tell the truth then you don’t need a good memory!” So good I wrote it down!
