yarn along :: stuff that shouldn't be happening today

.
Picking the first and only sweet peas of the year... in September? That's just bizarre.

I shouldn't have had time to finish the raspberry Rubble sweater.

I wish I hadn't heard the words "it's discontinued" this morning, with respect to my most favourite wool EVER. Especially at a time when I can't afford to bulk buy all the remaining stock in the local craft shop.

I shouldn't have had time to start a Pompom Papoose in the aforementioned favourite fantastic wool (inspired by lovely Anoushka's version).

I wish I hadn't spent so much time searching through hunnerds of photos (of our recent sandy recreation of DunBroch Castle) for all the porpoises that were frolicking in the background... didn't manage to catch a single one on 'film' sadly.

I shouldn't have needed to recharge and replenish the hospital bag Kindle already, without it ever having been near the hospital bag (now stocked with some Alexander McCall Smith and Chris Cleave btw).

I should be having a baby today. I don't seem to be doing that. It's bloody annoying.

    1. Oh, no! I was thinking about you the other day wondering if you were all snuggly with your new bub. Never mind. My friend had a baby today, so that's why you didn't. Only one a day, you know. Perhaps tomorrow??? xx

    6. That sounds like good advice: one more day to sleep and rest... but waiting is such a frustrating thing to do! But at least you know for sure it won't be long now!

    8. I remember how anxious I was when my daughter was past the "due" date. ♥ Lovely photos. Which Alexander McCall Smith books do you have? I love this "No. 1 Ladies' Detective Agency" series...the other series are just okay, in my opinion. And are you planning reading "Little Bee"?

      1. I'm a big fan of the Scotland street series, but it might be something to do with being Scottish, and knowing people who conform perfectly to ALL the stereotypes he describes. I'm not so wild about the Botswana ones.
        I read Little Bee ( called The Other Hand here in the uk) a few years ago. Unputdownable in a grotesque sort of way! So I'm going to give Incendiary a go... Have you read it?

    9. Thank you lovely ladies, I hope you're all right in that it can't be long now, because my brain's telling me it'll never happen. Which illustrates my state of mind somewhat!

    10. Maybe it has arrived? Maybe not ready yet enjoying the womb so much.

    12. I SO feel your pain ~ both of my girls had to be coerced out at 42 weeks!!!! What is up with that??? Each time those were the longest two weeks of my life. Long, HUGE and miserable. Hope your time comes soon ~ can't wait to hear the news!!! Hope it's quick and painless.....

    14. Oh...I hope that by now you have new babe in arms. Sweet peas already...and your own sweet pea on the way!

      Shame about your favourite yarn but hopefully be able to find some cheap on ebay,

      Take care of your self and the little one...
      Thinking about you.
