On Saturday before I left for HK Loop in London hosted a book launch and signing for my new book “Socktopus”. So much fun! Cake from Bittersweet Baker and knitters from all over – Sweden, Norfolk, Chicago, and London to name a few. Very exciting.
The launch party was so much fun – and was followed by a last hurrah pub dinner with some of my favourite knitting peeps.
A really lovely way to spend my last evening in London. Big hugs!
First day in Hong Kong has been pretty uneventful – took Deuce for a walk in the local landscaped park thingie – met some dogs with their carers – a mix of domestic helpers and owners. Lovely people. I’ll be bumping into them regularly I imagine. Took Deuce to a vet whose method of feeding pills I really didn’t like – he tried to shove a pill down Deuce’s throat by forcing his mouth open and pushing the pill as far back in his throat as possible. If he’d bothered to ask me before doing that I could have told him to give me the pill to take home (a little coating of cheese does wonders….). I was kind of proud of Deuce for spitting the pill up whole. A bit freaky here is the danger of tick fever – apparently ticks are a big problem. Deuce was given a tick collar which absolutely stinks – on top of his regular Frontline drops. I’ve decided against the collar since I find the smell really offensive. I think I’ll have to bite the bullet and do a daily check instead and tweeze any buggers off. Bleck.
Blueberry update: bump at 23 weeks. I’m definitely past looking like I’ve eaten a big meal and moved into pregnant territory. So far so good.
