We've had another good dump of rain! The vege garden is loving the wet, warm weather and has gone a bit crazy - I love it!
Today I made a rope mat! I'm rather thrilled with it! It was a free class held at the Maritime Museum here in Auckland (which by the way is an excellent museum, with the most brilliant exhibition on knots). I was the slowcoach in the class, as I twisted the mat a bit back and had to un-do and start again... I was miles behind the rest, but I got there in the end! I'd love to make more - it's easy once you get going past the first round or two! This used about 20 metres of rope.
Two teens are currently cooking us dinner - the middle one and a mate. I'm impressed with that too - taking themselves off to the supermarket and then cooking without even being asked! (mine's on the left). They've even made the pasta from scratch!
It was delicious!
I've a book to give away. This is real chick lit - a quick light read. I read it once in a few hours last weekend and won't read it again.... leave me a comment and I'll draw a winner next weekend. Open worldwide.
