Tag Five



I can't believe its taken me this long to respond to the five tag. I love this sort of scheit. Talking about myself - my favourite thing to do. And now with my newly found, bolshy attitude to life and my decision to take no scheit from noone, you'd think I would have been right onto this. Too busy telling my mother-in-law how it is. (Now that's another story.)

Anyhoo, I have five minutes so I will answer my five questions tagged by Aunty Cookie:

Five minutes to yourself: how would you spend them, ideally?Dancing in my living room to the unfeasibly un street-cool pop songs on J's Now 2006 cd, or Golddigger (you know I'm down with the 911) or listening to my new So Frechy So chic cd ( Ta Doleur - c'est magnifique).

Five bucks to spend right now; how would you spend it?Knitting needles. I hope they don't cost more than five bucks. I bought wool this morning and that's about my needle budget.

Five items in your house you could part with, right now, that you had'nt thought of already?The paper scheit that lives in piles in every room; the kitchen cupboard scheit that I never use- old saucepans, more paper, miscellaneous kid's party remnants etc; old bed linen that's ugly and worn out; our old cd's which are total scheit and all our old clothes that are so bad that we probably shouldn't have worn them ever.

Five items you absolutely, positively could never part with in your house? I don't think their is anything I couldn't live without - but I do love the kid's books, the baby clothes and blankets (particularly the bubba's quilt handcrafted by me in pink before I got pregnant with the boy - the maternal, baby-gender equivalent of dancing for rain) and one of J's drawings that has me on one side of the paper and the luthier on the other.

Five words you love? unfeasible, bobble, nosepickles( J's genius new word for boogies), crank and slapper (and fuffenscheit of course)

The only person I know to tag is Aunty D.
I just haven't clocked up the crafty blog time to connect with anymore bloggers.

Wish me luck, for tonight I launch into the wonderful world of knitting. The idea of being able to sit on my butt in front of the tv and generate craft is tres appealing to moi. The sewing lark is a bit messy and requires loads of space, can't be assed with it at the mo'. The mother-in-law did show me how to use the sewing machine properly, so I should begin the cowboy quilt for J soon, before I forget. Anyhoo, tonight I knit.
