Happy Mothers Day

Well I had my first Mothers Day in Australia with my Mum for about 15 years and it was a wonderful day. Mum and Dad took Alan and I to the Tea Tree Gully Golf Course for lunch and as always the meal and service was great. Just a shame that the entertainment, which was a good singer, was so very loud that we could hardly hear ourselves talk at times. I have to admit to a very bad headache by the time I got home but apart from that it was a lovely day.

Got home and completed the right front of the cardigan and got the rib for the second sleeve completed before I went to bed. I managed to get the first sleeve knitted in just over a day, so with luck this one will be done by Wednesday at the latest.

After all my calculations with the Bendigo Woollen Mill yarn and Patons Totem 8 ply I knew I was going to run out of yarn with just three balls. Fortunately because I had done one sleeve, the front and back I could see that fairly quickly. I called Bendigo on Thursday and was lucky enough to be able to order an extra ball of the same dyelot. My knitting is right on guage so am a little concerned about running out of the yarn. Never mind I told Jan I can make her a hat, mittens, socks or scarf out of the remains of the extra ball.

Am busy looking for a job either full or part time but would like something permanent in the city of locally at Tea Tree Gully. I am going to register this week for a course in Medical Terminology with the hope that I can then get a job as a receptionist in either a hospital or doctors office, while still trying for a dental receptionist which is my expertise. There does seem to be a shortage of trained health care workers so here’s hoping that something might come up sooner rather than later.
