Rainy day blues.

Actually, not. For all it is pretty dank and nasty out there, I am relatively cheerful.

I have been waiting for a man again. (No, that isn't what makes me cheerful, I don't do waiting all that well.) He was supposed to arrive at 8.30 (ugh) but phoned instead to say he would be an hour late. After two hours, he turned up (Yeay!!) So hopefully, when he and his marra have finished, our flagstones will no lo0nger go bonk-bonk every time someone arrives at the house.

So, during thast waiting time, have I been productive? Weeeell.......

I have vacced a bit and unloaded the dishwasher. That counts, no? But I have spent a lot of time slaving over a hot laptop, checking blogs and Ravelry.

Now, I am a huge fan of Icanhascheezburger? If there is anything guaranteed to make me cheerful, it is that. But be warned if you visit, you either love it or think it the most twee and ridiculous thing evah. Anyway, on the Lolcats group on Ravelry, I followed a link or two and found out something very significant about myself (other than that I have an endless capacity for wasting time.)

Your Score: Longcat

65% Affectionate, 45% Excitable, 40% Hungry

Protector of truth.

Slayer of darkness.


It is prophesized that Longcat and his archnemesis Tacgnol will battle for supremacy on Caturday. The outcome will change the face of the world, and indeed the very fabric of lolcatdom, forever.

Be grateful that the test has chosen you, and only you, to have this title.

I also found out that there is an Ankh Morpork Knitters Guild, but I can', wait a sec, I can show you the Coat of Arms.


I feel particularly cheerful about this, as at Coven last night, we were all given new broomsticks, courtesy of Nanny Ogg's daughter-in-law (she always did now how to pick/train 'em) I'll mebbe photograph it when it has had its custom job.

OK, time to check on the flag replacement activity and do something serious by way of knitting or spinning. Tomorrow we are going to York, and I have conned the DSM into promising a visit to Sheepish.

Like I need yarn.

(I have just reviewed this post and do believe that I have finally lost it completely. But I make no apologies. We are all allowed to display our barking (inappropriate, sorry) madness from time to time. So.)

hooooooookay then. I'm sure you'll feel better after a nice rest.
Only kidding.

I don't in any way wish to criticise but that coat of arms seems to have a Morpork missing and some kind of moth in it's place!

What is a marra? Do I want one?

So, did you drink a whole pot of coffee before writing that delightful post?

Just got an email from Alfred this morning and he's doing well.

I recently took an online quiz and scored 96 out of 100 on nerdness, which shocked me -- I thought I was doing pretty well at passing for normal. I'm too wary now to find out what kind of cat I'd be...!

Thank you Carol for your very kind comment on my blog. I really enjoyed the cats thing - I am a 'lion warning cat'. Hilarious picture. I'm just off now to find the Ankh Morpork knitters. Really enjoying discovering all this knitty and witty knitty stuff on the web.
