Why People Play Club Sport

I've finally worked it out. The reason people play club sport? Cheap drinks at the club rooms! Sweet. Even better than paying subs and spending all Saturday sweating? Be a club player's flatmate. T and I just went down the clubrooms and got mildly squiffy. $2.20 for a glass of wine! It'd be rude not to.

Didn't do heaps today - walked Sock, collected some driftwood for the fire, weeded the garden, started reading a book about the history of the oil industry. I need to find some cheap wool. Anyone got any old spare mis-matching balls around? I'm knitting a thneed (you need a thneed!) and need free or very cheap materials.

Went to a garage sale today and got two very good, very sharp kitchen knives for $2. I've also discovered an awesome shop here in New Brighton that is called Dog Watch - they've been going for over 25 years, and it's basically a thrift shop run by volunteers that gives all profits to feeding, housing, re-homing and de-sexing dogs. I got a jacket and a jersey there the other day. I'm getting quite friendly with one of the ladies that works there. Sock is defintely an asset!

Hello. I've just stumbled upon your blog and think it's cool that someone else in the world uses the word "thneed" in a sentence.
Cheers! hope you feel better soon.
