I don't have any stitching to share. I have worked a little more on Curly Q Ewe, but there's not enough progress to warrant a photo.
I took an annual leave day today, and I'm currently just hanging around waiting for my 3pm doctors appointment. So I thought I'd share with you something we did on the weekend. My sister and I took her friend's daughter and my nephew to the zoo for a close up encounter with Red Pandas. It was raining, but it was still a lot of fun and a great experience. They climbed on our laps, took food from our hands and generally just left us in awe at their cuteness!
A funny story to share... while we were waiting for our meeting with the Red Pandas, we took a stroll and were looking at the chimpanzees in their indoor enclosure. There was one very large male standing on the roof of the entry way for the zoo keepers. It started banging on the roof, and I thought he was trying to get the attention of the two keepers who were standing underneath chatting. The male chimpanzee then started banging louder with both hands and getting quite vocal, it seemed to be getting quite agitated. Next thing it launches itself off the roof and comes flying through the air directly towards us. It grabbed some ropes to break the fall and then banged on the window at us. It is odd - we were all terrified, but none of us actually moved! Then we noticed the zoo keepers had disappeared - I reckon they went away to wet themselves laughing. Our faces must have been a picture!
As we walked away my 12 year old nephew (who is quite small for his age) said to me 'it is just as well that glass was there, or I would have taken that chimp down'. LOL. Quite the comedian.
Thanks for all your get well wishes for Tess. Unfortunately, due to the stress of being sick it has made her cat flu return. She had it very badly last year, and apparently stress can cause a recurrence of it (even though she's vaccinated and already on antibiotics). So maybe in a week she'll be back to 100%. She's currently perched behind me on the couch making snuffly noises in my ear!
Oh well, enough gas bagging. I should go and do something productive!
Hope your week is going great!
