Thank you stranger.... !!!
Thanks Sasha for your kind thoughts.... and Michelle... hugz.... thanks for helping me go round the neighbourhood distributing flyers.
DH and I can sleep peacefully tonight. NEVER again, do i want to experience this ... so... DH is taking the day off work tomorrow to do the following:
1) use bricks to cover ALL gap between fence and soil
2) Register Brutas with the council
3) Get him a dog tag with our details... i dun care if he has to lug the BIG tag around on his neck... better still... he cannot run far
4) Off to the vet to be microchipped
5) back home to face the music from US!
Any one know if i can put GPS on a dog? i am seriously considering it...
Brutas's picture was on the Cannington Councils's website... look at him.... he looks like a little proud gangster ...look at him!!! Not remorseful AT ALL....arrghhhh... and know what he was doing when he was "discovered" ?.. trying to fight with 2 ...not one but TWO dogs easily 3 times his size!!
Oh my Brutas.... Thank God he is safe and sound.

"For the next 4 (4, 5, 5) pattern repeats, on every other row, increase one at both sides of the sole" Question: increase at Row 1 or 2 of pattern repeat ... I am assuming row 1 and increasing on the sole.....yay? nay?
Easter is over.... 4 blissful days of holiday only to go back to a nightmare at work! Piles of files awaiting on my desks, countless emails, filing, telephone calls from clients wondering why they havent heard from you ....arrrghhhhhh! Public holidays... they good or bad?? I wasnt the only one....DH has a bad day too.... had the worst case of verbal abuse from a customer.... was still huffing and puffing when he got home... i think time to take out the hidden stash of chocolates to indulge....with a nice cuppa.... don't you agree?

it's a sandwich cookie that's dark chocolate on the outside and white chocolate grenache within....
Dan's come up with a brilliant idea... try peanut butter as a filling instead.... am off to the supermarkets to get me hands on some and straight home to test it out :)
On the knitting front... i have taken 2 steps forward... and gone 3 steps backwards... My Jaywalkers have been frogged at our last City Nits... it was a unanimous agreement between the ladies that a smaller needle should have been used.... oh well... practice... makes it perfect isnt it? I couldnt bear to do the frogging... Michelle kindly obliged to help... hmmm....
I also had my first attempt at the swift and winder.... oh..how wonderous the experience... seeing the skeins of yarn being winded up effortlessly into beautiful balls .... pictures already posted on Michelle's blog .... check it out :)
