done bun . . .

Posted on: December 4, 2007

. . . can’t  be undone.

The Spunk said this the other day, and we all cracked up. I don’t remember ever hearing anyone say that before. Do you ever hear yourself sounding like your parents, or your grandparents? I find that I have a few favourites to express certain emotions in a classroom appropriate manner! Most of them sound ridiculous but the kids are never in doubt about what I mean. They are very astute – I said something was interesting the other day and they asked me if I meant interesting or “interesting” with the air quotes! Ha!

Anyhow, here is the bun, done.

I have started another one for the middle child. Tiny Madam cracks the whip over me (well, she pretends to) so that I finish things quickly. This was most useful when finishing my reports Sunday, as I told her we could not put up the Christmas tree until I had finished my work. She quite literally stood next to me and told the Spunk when I accidentally opened other windows! It worked. The reports were done and the tree was up by lunch time. My son, on the other hand, is a gentler and more understanding creature and told his sister he would not be cracking any whips over his Mummy. I need to work to reward his patience!

OMG. My tea cosy swap arrived yesterday.


I was lucky enough to be allocated to Donyale who spoiled me freakin’ rotten! As I did not have a tea pot or a plunger, she sent me one of each, with a cosy on both. I also got some Kingston biscuits (my absolute all time favourites!), some Dutch spiced cookies and some Milk Arrowroot (I don’t believe you can go past them for a good dipping bickie!), some coffee for the plunger, some tea for the pot AND some yarn that she dyed herself that’s called Peacock Tail. It’s gorgeous. Visit Yarn Cakes, Donyale’s Etsy store. Thank you so much for your generosity Donyale!

 Um, I still haven’t knitted.

The holidays are coming, you can knit soon. The bunnies are cute.

Too cute! and what a wonderful parcel you received!

Oh what a cute bunny. Love the pressie Donnie sent too.

Cute Bun! When you finish the second one does that mean you’ll have cute buns? Hee hee.

Nice prezzies, don’t know much about tea bickie’s but the yarn looks yummy!

Am loving the Done Bun. So cute!! And great package – I got mine yesterday – so spoilt!!

Glad to hear you got it – I was thinking that Tassie is on the other side of the world – dang postage takes so long….Hope you didn’t mind the tea cosy and bodum cozy…Cindy 2paw was my able bodied spy….so helpful in talking me through colours you might like.

That bunny is GORGEOUS!!!!

Looks like donyale spoilt you good! lol

And I think I am still doing enough knitting for the two of us.. o_O


It’s an amigurumi conspiracy!!! I’ve been holding out and holding out, but I fear that you’ve finally pushed me over the edge with the alien :>
Congrats on the bun, and on the birthday, (getting in early lest I forget), and on getting Donni as your swap partner – if only we could clone her so everyone could have their very own Donni =>

It is I Le Clere!!! I loved being a spy and you are sooo lucky to have Donnie as your Swapper!! What beautiful presents!! Love the Bun, hun!!! Good work getting those reports finished and it’s all down hill now!!!
