What's the gift, Babe? I wish I could have learned how to knit, Grandma tried to teach me, bless her.

Going through Mom's papers and my notes and fielding emails from work. Gack. I have to go back to work tomorrow.

Just got back from spending the whole day with mum, wonderful day!

We went to see The Hobbit, second time for me

Mum bought me a choc top icecream, gee it was nice, been a long time since I have had one of them...last time for a long time too though, they are not the best for you!

After the movie we looked around the shops for awhile and then went back to mums for coffee, wonderful day

This morning I am making lasagna for tonights dinner

Then I am off to the pictures with mum to see The Hobbit again
I watched The Hobbit on Sunday! Ran out of episoded for Vampire Diaries and Guys with Kids. We watched 50/50 too, not bad but it reminded me to much about my Sister's brain opp. Too close to home if you know what I mean.

I'm wishing I could go back to bed! Slept about 3 hours. Daniel is driving me nuts at night since starting school, he does not want to sleep!

He couldn't move or talk (we all thought stroke) and took 10 minutes to find and push the button. We woke up to the sound of the speaker in the living room. After that the doors stayed open at night and we were able to check on Dad whenever we were up. The second time Dad and I were home alone and he fell off the bed and was wedged between the bed and the wall. I couldn't get him up and was propping his head as it was at a bad angle so I pushed the button and they sent an ambulance to help us. Even a "non emergency" like that if it is an elderly person in trouble (and in this case a disabled one trying to help), they will send a truck ASAP.

I would suggest anyone who is older (or not) who has health concerns should get one. They don't always send an ambulance but will call someone on the contact list to come and check you - they do what is needed.
They will also call the fire and police dept. if necessary.

As you know, babetoo, everything is relative -- if I could knit something halfway presentable, let alone something good enough to give as a gift, it would be pretty exciting.

I've thought from time to time that surely I could make something simple, like a lap robe or baby blanket, to donate. Do you think that's feasible for a non-knitter? I would like something to do with my hands while watching TV.

Later today I'll be watching the last disc of three for DA season 2. Then it's on to Amazon instant vdeo where season 3 is closed captioned.
I just did a Google search and can't find the already aired episodes from this season though... They are on season 4, aren't they? Otherwise how could season 3 already be available if it's just now airing?
