I am ....

Working: On the The Complete Works of William Shakespeare (abridged)

Being Called: Amanda Muggleton, Bob, Ruth, Tracey - by the characters of TCWWS during the course of the play.

Sleeping: at Bondi over the past three nights, during the bump in and rehearsals of TCWWS, because of the late finishes, early starts and Trackwork.

Reading: James Ellroy - The Big Nowhere as recommended by Jennifer Byrne and team on the First Tuesday Book Club; An intense, complex and enthralling read.

Watching: TCWWS and Life on Mars Series 2, the first because it's so funny and the second because it's a damn fine drama.

Knitting: the lovely Touch Yarns Angora into a scarf and mittens for a friend who admired the yarn - the bunny fibre is sooo soft and smooshy. I have to complete it by tomorrow lunchtime so one more show should do it.

Buying: 1 skein of Debbie Bliss Silk yarn from Morris and Sons sales to supplement the 6 balls of cotton/silk, Classic Elite Patina I'm using for the Stashbusting sideways Jacket. Any excuse to go and browse a sale.

Waiting: for Virginia Farm to reopen so I can buy dye suitable for colouring Linen fibre - then I can finish the Linen Jacket.

Sheltering: in the dark, air conditioned, coolness of the Playhouse Control Room away from crowds of hot tourists.

Missing: the cool Blue Mountains air, the King Parrots on the back Verandah, and my boys.
