On a totally different topic i went to a wonderful bakery/cafe today. It's called Brasserie Bread and it is on Botany Road. They bake all the bread on site and send it out to all the top restaurants in Sydney, they also sell all there bread onsite. What totally amazed me was that they use spelt flour and nobody ever uses spelt flour. I'm in love hehe. So this morning i am having homemade jam on spelt toast YUMMMM!
I hope everyone has a great weekend!

Here are my buys from Borders & Hornsby Wool & Craft Nook.I totally love the holiday handknit book, it has so many great ideas in it. And as you can see a hank of point five i already have three hanks so i thought i can now make a scarf with a matching beanie.
And hopefully i can get some tips from the sewing book. Lets hope:) I haven't done any knitting in the last couple of days and considering the amount of ironing i have to do i don't think i will get any done tonight.
I hope everyone enjoys there week:)

I didn't take pics of the wonderful magligt ;) but i did take pics of some little treats i bought him. These are happy cakes from our local deli, they are one of my favourites.
Here we have some more treats, funny thing when i bought them lots of my favourites fell in to the trolly, i don't know how that happened:)
And now on to knitting. I started another beanie. I have to buy some 5.5mm DPN to finish it off. I hope i can get to the shops this weekto pick them up.
I haven't done a huge amount of the scarf, but i will get, even if it is at a snails pace.
And finally no post is complete without a pic of one of my babies. India napping as usual.
Thankyou everyone for your lovely comments and emails.

My Dad has Cancer. He has had it for two years but it is now getting to the stage that he is in constant pain, it has spread to his bones and he is now starting to lose alot of weight. It's so hard to watch a man that was once so strong and active just lay in bed all day and not leave the house. He does have his good days, but for the most part they are bad.
Mentally he seems fine, He use to get very depressed, but strange even he seems fairly clam and relaxed. He isn't at the stage where he needs full time care but mum knows the day is coming.
It's funny when i think about Dad and all the other people suffering in the world today my personal problems seem so tiny and pathetic they are not worth mentioning.
I hope everyone can enjoy the rest of there weekend with someone they love.
