Someone this week had a clip at the start of their blog, and asked that you played and listened to the song, whilst reading the blog post. (Apologies if it was you, I have over 100 blogs on my reader, and I have a memory like a goldfish), if it was you, and you read this, please leave a comment, so I can attribute you.
EDIT: it was Tabiboo, and you can find her post here
Anyhoo, this is what I would like you to do with this post today. Play the above clip, and read on.
This is one of my favourite bands, the Go-Betweens, and it is a song about the streets of my town, where I grew up, and where I live now.
This morning the sky looked amazing, and I just had to take lots of photos to show you
So, enough pictures, on to the Yarning Along. This week I am reading the long awaited latest instalment in the Dan Starkey series by Colin Bateman. Colin Bateman is one of my favourite authors, and this book is great!!
It's funny; disturbingly so, gripping, and a great read. I am really really enjoying this.
It has been a great time for my favourite authors lately- Ian Rankin last week, and Bateman this week.
I would definitely recommend any of Colin Batemans books. This one is set in Ireland, where most, but not all are.
And this is the rapidly growing baby blanket. Not much to say about it except that it's growing still.
Now this adorable horse was knitted by my Son's girlfriend, who is also adorable; for Daughter#2's recent birthday. I thought it was amazing, and such a lovely thing to do. He has imaginatively been called Horsey. And he has the distinction of not being terrifying, as are most of the toys I have attempted to make for her!!
Speaking of terrifying......................
I had another go at making a doll. I understand that her lack of eyes make her creepy, but I fear that even with eyes, she will be someone you would hide from.
I may however be racking up ridiculously amounts of future therapeutic intervention for my children's futures!!
