Happy Birthday Old Queen!

(No, not a reference to yesterday's post.)

It's a public holiday for the Queen's Birthday! And it's not even her actual birthday! I love the Royals and their eccentric ways!

It's been a weird and kind of disappointing weekend so far. I went to Worldwide Knit In Public Day on Saturday, but not before running around like a crazy man in the morning trying to get things done and arriving home to find my sweet friend Judy was early. Aaargh, pressure! So I threw my things together and we headed out. In a torrential rainstorm, the likes of which Sydney hasn't seen in 30 years. Cold! Wet! (Yay)

To cap things off I managed to break my beloved 50mm F1.8 camera lens somehow. I don't know how, but it was in 2 pieces when I pulled the camera out of my bag. So I was cold, wet, pissed off and even working up a good headache by the time we got to the venue. I actually had a good time and got some pics with my back-up lens (pics to come), but was feeling the cold after a couple of hours. Or actually not feeling my feet anymore. So we spilt. I ended up staying in and watching the teev for the rest of the evening while the storm raged.

Yesterday I futzed around in the morning and then headed off to the pub knitting get together in the afternoon. The weather had cleared a bit but it was still pretty cool. I bought a beer and some food and waited. After waiting for about 50 minutes and nobody else turning up I got tired of sitting there like Nigel No Mates and split. Cue a second night of staying in watching the teev, only this time there was a pizza to mix things up a bit.

So there we have it. I might be catching up with Mikey (the lovely ex) today, otherwise a day of housework is on the agenda.

This old queen really knows how to celebrate!

Sorry to hear about your broken lens, what a bummer.I just couldn't drag myself out into THAT weather to WWKIP and the pub knitting; WWKIP was wet and cold last year too but nowhere near as bad as this year.
