Nicholai wanted to tell me something this afternoon, so he texted me. From his room. That’s it. He’s officially a teenager and technology has stolen his soul.
Nothing too much else to say about today. I stayed in my pyjama pants as long as possible, and did some writing and some knitting. I’ve finished Luna’s snowflake jumper and it looks cute, if not exactly as well fitted as I would like. But I was pretty much making it up as I went along, so taking that into account it’s not too bad. I’ll make a few changes if I ever knit another one, and see if that improves it.
Troy and I have been mucking about on gumtree and ebay, looking for furniture. Specifically a new lounge. We’re not too fussed about it at the moment, but it is still really, really annoying when people don’t get back to you. It would be so much easier to just go out and buy something, but we really don’t have that much money at the moment. So it’s sitting on the flaking couch until we can find and buy an okay second hand one.
I also thought today that if we get a second hand couch then we will be firmly on the side of the majority of our furniture being acquired used. Our dining setting, the buffet, our bed, Nicholai’s bedroom furniture, Emma’s bedroom furniture, the armchair in my study etc. I told this to Troy and he thought I was accusing him of being a cheapskate, but really I think it’s good. It makes me feel very environmental. (Okay, and a bit like a cheapskate).
As you can see, Luna hardly needs a sweater at the moment! She’s probably as furry as she’s ever been. But she’s scheduled for a haircut next week, and so the sweater will probably fit completely differently once we’ve cut off inches of hair.
