Socks, birthdays and butterflies:)

Finished my socks from the yarn Anne gave me , don't they look gorgeous? Done with magic loop again:) It felt strange making a pair for myself but I will enjoy wearing these.
Have had no email since Tuesday lunchtime due to virgin and their problems:( This afternoon I can access mail via the web only which helps a little. Wondering if it is time to change my ISP.
Mr Mog had his birthday today and we had a lovely trip to Williamson Park and the butterfly house. Pictures on his blog for those interested. We then had lunch in our local Italian restaurant. A blessed day to enjoy after the year of turmoil and upset.
We are having a few days in Wales courtesy of Anne to ride on some narrow gauge railways and meander here and there. That will be our joint birthday gift as it is my birthday next Thursday. Been very wet this past few days and dismal. I was going to do some dyeing and indeed I think tomorrow I will as I now have my squirty bottles with lids to keep the dye in.

Better late than never so they say so Happy Birthday Mr Mog. I haven't been keeping up with the blogs on a daily basis recently so I am glad that I managed to get the greeting in on the right day - well just about!

Happy birthday to you and Mr. Mogs. The train trip through Wales sounds divine. Wish I could go along!

Great socks! Hope you have a good (dry!) time at Anne's. The moebius are great (what's the plural?). It took me three days to master the cast on!LOL
