Sometimes you forget that being happy is a decision that you need to make. You just have to decide to let go of all the little things that are upsetting you, and embrace everything that you love. And so, I’m back to normal again. Took a bit of a scare to get me here, but I’m back.

Floz and I took of uni early today to go to the beach. Tomorrow a whole bunch of people are coming by to carve pumpkins. Yesterday we had soccer try-outs for the club team, and a bunch of the UniGames people turned up, so it should be a fun season next year.

Aaaaaand, this may also turn into a bit of a knitting blog soon as well. Look out people! The crafty Canadian ladies have finally influenced me into taking it up. If you remember me talking about Jamie, back when I lived in Mulwarree, well she’s back in China now, and pregnant. The girls back home have inspired me into doing some knitting for her new baby. Not sure what I’ll make, but it’s going to be red. Which is odd, I know, for a baby, but in China red is the colour for luck. People wear it at weddings, and everything at New Years is red, so I thought something red for the new baby would be appropriate. And it’s gender-neutral too, which is a plus. I’m going to see if I can find a good yarn store in Sydney and get some advice from them. It might actually prove difficult finding baby-soft yarn in red. I think it’s mostly pastels.

    Hey Martha, Just try to get soft yarn that is made from natural fibre (acrylic, which is what most baby yarns are, might melt onto said baby for sad times). Baby Ull wool is reasonably widely availably multi-coloured soft wool.

    Welcome back, Marty. I have nothing to say about the knitting, but good luck. And remember, there is no better way to celebrate life than with food! If you need any suggestions, just let me know.
