But this morning DH received a text from his DD3 who had just flown on an early flight to Melbourne from Brisbane. The text said that the plane had had a fire on board and they were met at Melbourne airport by 4 fire tenders. She indicated that all onboard were safe thank goodness...but how scary it must have been for all involved...it could have easily been a disaster! It made me think again of those families who have links with Christchurch who had a relative/friend/neighbour go off to work last Tuesday and who will never come home again...tragic! Hopefully our Nikki will enjoy the rest of her weekend away and with her usual resilience face the flight home.
Another thing on my mind is an advertisement in the newspaper yesterday from one of the 2 BIG contenders in the 'supermarket supremacy war', Coles. It speaks for itself in the photo below... (sorry about the quality of the photo it was easier to take a photo than scan at the time)
|And these items are classed as 'food'? And 'quality food' at that!|
|Pinned together and lying flat on top of the bed|
|This is a new pattern for me that I tried out and i'll definitely use it again in another project|
|This was the first slipstitch pattern I ever tried; must be over 20 years ago now...still a favourite!|
|This is another favourite pattern. I use it a lot when I knit mohair rugs|
|This time the throw is draped over the lounge|
