Project 365 #8, Days 52-67: 1st – 16th March

Stiiiiiiiill catching up: here are days 52 to 67 of my Project 365 photos – the first half of March. I’m going to post them in chunks of half a month at a time until I get caught up, now. If you want to see all the photos so far, click on the Project 365 category link, or check out the Project 365 folder in the photo album. Or for the most up-to-date version, try my Flickr set.
On to the pics (click them for the full sized versions):

The “Mother’s Day Mitts” fingerless gloves I made for Mum (for, uh, Mother’s Day), just waiting to have the ends woven in. The centre-panel cable shows up better in person (and in the larger version of the photo, if you click) than it does here.

Mum presiding over the enormous Chinese takeaway that we had for Mothering Sunday. Mmmmmmmmmm!!!!!

Hoorah, it’s shopping delivery day! I shall not starve in the next month. Always good news, that ;-)

The Conquest Hospital – I had to go up to get a blood test done. I have such a rock and roll lifestyle!

OMG YUM. It’s like a whole bar of Wispa. Gaaaaaah! Chocolate heaven.

Day 57 – 6th Mar 08

My hat, scarf, coat and sunglasses slung over the back of the sofa – I’d just come back from charging up the gas and electricity keys. Once again, check out mah rock ‘n roll life! ;-)

Day 58 – 7th Mar 08

My Jacobean sock in progress (pair #1 for the Sock Knitters’ Pentathlon). This was my first toe-up sock, and it was going very well. Plus, I was using Posh Yarn Emily, which is utterly gorgeous.

Day 59 – 8th Mar 08

There’s a hole in my heel turn, my heel turn, my heel turn; there’s a hole in my heel turn, my heel turn, a hole! Damnit!! ;-) It was my first stocking stitch short row heel, and things didn’t go well. But I persevered (that is, I ripped and re-knit a couple of times!) and got there in the end.

Day 60 – 9th Mar 08

My bed, which I had just got out of. Hence the crumpled-ness and the dent still in the pillow!

Day 61 – 10th Mar 08

The smoke alarm in my kitchen, dripping water from the leak that’s been causing a lot of annoyance to me and my neighbours upstairs. It’s happening because their bathroom isn’t properly sealed and apparently it’s a stupidly big job to get it fixed. However, since it was dripping down through parts of my flat that have electric wiring (including that smoke alarm which hooks up to the main fire alarm for the building), I think that sped it all on. At any rate, I haven’t had any probs for a while.

Day 62 – 11th Mar 08

The house at the end of my block – were those ever windows, I wonder? If so, why fill them in? If not, why put blocked in non-windows there in the first place? Aaaaaah!

Day 63 – 12th Mar 08
Project 365 photo from 12/03/08
I live here! I love this huge front door with the big pointy lintel and scrolly bits. The paintwork is a bit grubby again now, but it was redone a year and a half ago, or thereabouts. Oh, and that window right above the point? That’s my kitchen. Yay!

Day 64 – 13th Mar 08

Had to go and buy some more food to top me up until the next ‘big’ online shop. So I thought I’d plop it down on the front steps outside and take a photo of it there, rather than indoors like before. Ta-da!

Day 65 – 14th Mar 08

The Xandermog graciously receives his portion of adulation from Mum. I’m not sure whose expression is funniest ;-)

Day 66 – 15th Mar 08

C came down to visit for the weekend, so of course we had to go out for a slap up meal at Cosmo, which does a Chinese buffet menu. Yuuuuuuuuuum. We ate til we were ready to go pop!

Day 67 – 16th Mar 08

One of Xander’s favourite sleeping places is under my computer desk. Of course, this means I sometimes accidentally kick or tread on him…. oops! Still, it’s safer than when he sleeps right behind my computer chair. Daft mog :-)
