|Retro shoes, I'm in love. Best part, they're comfortable too!|
Same day I got a call from Telecom, my LG phone was back and I could pick it up, yay! Love having it back, T's phone was good to have as a backup, but nowhere near as nice to use. LG is intuitive, the HTC was not.
I've been busy with spinning too, finished my duck egg Merino/Silk in approx fingering weight.
|1014m or more of lovely yarn; will probably be a top for me.|
|double batch, delicious!|
|Past the armholes; loving this.|
After I got back from the guild we went out to Riccarton Mall to get Ian new shoes, his old ones are only a month old, but his feet are pronating in them and they're already falling apart; never buying shoes from Number 1 Shoe Warehouse again. Went with leather New Balance velcro sneakers this time, they always last well and his feet are in the right place in them; size 3 though which was a surprise. He's sneaking into bigger shoes than his big brother! We were also looking for barefoot running shoes for T, but couldn't find anywhere that stocked the Vibram shoes for him to try, he's going to have to go to Bush Inn instead, only stockist is there.
Before we left I'd been looking at the deal on 1-day today which was for Android tablets; when we got back I looked again and after discussion we decided to buy it. $299 plus post got a 10" tablet with Android 4.0, a capacitive screen and the ability to expand the memory up to 32gig with a micro SD card. Still have to get the card, but considering we were expecting to pay considerably more than that I'm not unhappy about it. We decided on Android for a couple of reasons, one being the huge cost of I-Pads, the fact that both our cellphones are Android and that means if I buy apps then we can share them between devices. We'll be sharing it, I suspect it'll go to his gaming sessions and may well go to my knitting/spinning sessions too. I can use it for pattern PDF's which will be very handy. It will be password protected and most likely to the children's disappointment there will be no games.
No more spending for a bit, I wanted to do some fabric shopping, but that won't happen now, the tablet used up all spare monies, which is fine. We also paid off the camera and put some extra on the mortgage.
