This week...

I've spent the week battling migraines, spending yesterday in bed with a full blown one as I had run out of medication.  Had to phone a friend to go pick some tablets up for me from the chemist in town (20klm away).  An hour after taking the tablet I started to come good.  Still not 100% today, but much better than I was feeling yesterday.

Some of you may know I have been waiting on a court decision on a financial settlement with my husband.  The decision was handed down on tuesday...not as good as I had hoped, and there will be no house buying for me, but I will have enough to pay legal bills, and pay back what I have had to  borrowed from family, and have a little left over.  I am a little disappointed I will need to continue renting, but...God knows best...and I am happy it is all finally nearly over and I can get on with life.

So, on to other things....

This morning I made this bread.  But this time I used 1 cup of white flour, 1 cup of wholemeal flour, 1 cup of rye flour, 1 cup of spelt flour and 3/4 cup of besan (chick pea) flour.  It turned out delicious again and I enjoyed 2 pieces warm with tomato and cheese on for lunch...with a cup of tea of course!

Ember mentioned the book below on a blog post here.

So I ordered it from Amazon UK (via amazon US) and it arrived today.  I think I'm going to really enjoy it...can't wait to get started!

My vest is coming along...have nearly finished the back...

I'm also knitting a wide scarf/narrow shawl in some lovely cream (although it looks white in the photo) English Leicester wool I have.  Not enough to make a bigger garment, so thought I would knit it up and put it in the community craft shop.  It's getting cooler here, so I'm hoping more of my 'warm woollies' will start selling...

Also knitting diagonal squares to be made into cot blankets for one of our charities.....

And I've just heard a friend who has been unwell for a while has been hospitalised (hopefully not for long), so I thought I'd put my knitting aside and crochet a lap blanket for her.

That's about if for 'my week in Tasmania'.  Hope y'all are having a good one!!


  1. Lots of lovely work coming along! I'm happy to hear the court battle is just about over, but so sorry to hear you will be needing to continue renting. I have no doubt God will show you why before too long. Hugs, Sharm

  2. I like the blue you selected for the vest, I started my mine, it too will be blue. I am doing the longer vest, it looks as if you are too. I had a false start, did all of the ribbing and realized I was following the pattern for the shorter version, oops. At least knitting is easy to undo and start over again.

    Sorry about your migraine, they are a misery aren't they.

    Sorry that the settlement was less than hoped for. I just finished a book and a comment has stayed with me, we just need to be still and allow God to love us right where we are in our life.

    Blessings to you,


  3. Hi Sharm and Bean - thank you for your kind thoughts. I was disappointed for a couple of days about the settlement, but am over it now :o)

    Kinda excited to see what God has in store.

    I said to some-one yesterday...."God has a plan...He just hasn't shown me what it is yet!!"

    Bean - my vest is a sort of mauvey(sp?) blue. I didn't realise there was a difference in the bands for the 2 lengths until I read both patterns. I'm using the shorter length pattern, but I am making it a bit longer. I am only short (5"1") so the long one would have been too long for me. Wonder who will finish first :o) xx

  4. That's such a lovely book Lynda - I think you will enjoy it! x

  5. Hi Ember! I have enjoyed what I have read so far. xx
