cheering my tuesday

look what arrived in the middle of my day-off drudgery (i’m not in the studio on tuesdays, which means i have to clean the house, boo!)…

un-valentine flowers

some “un-valentine” flowers from the RSA (who’s still in india until the beginning of next month – but yay for online florist deliveries!). there were so many of them that they wouldn’t fit in my one & only teeny, tiny vase, so i had to go get something to put them in (all i could find was a big glass pitcher, but i think it works!). while i was out, i may have accidentally stumbled into a sale of cheap dvds, and bought these three bad movies (whoops). so once i finished all my house-cleaning, i got back into my pjs, and have been alternating between watching dvds & gazing at my lovely flowers.
i also managed to finish these, so i’ve been wearing them as well (i love the colourway name, it makes me laugh every time i see them…

crabby mchappysocks
plain toe-up socks in socks that rock lightweight, colourway “crabby mchappypants”

and, i’ve finally started the shawl that i’ve been dying to start since i bought the yarn for it in paris this summer…

so all in all, my tuesday has been well & truly cheered – how about you?

    Yeah for cheesy 80’s films. Perfect for watching in PJs.

    Crabby McHappypants is possibly the greatest colourway I’ve ever heard & the socks look great too!
