******* expensive

And here's a little beauty that I've just ordered - the Solio Universal Power Supply Charger - you can use it to charge your mobile phone, iPod, MP3 player, digital camera etc, all from the sun! I'm very excited about it, because since we rent, there's not much we can do to our home in terms of adding solar power or water tanks etc. But this is a way I can do a bit of something and stop using so much coal-created electricity. It's available from the Todae shop (Sydney)! They have HEAPS of other cool things, too (want want want).

A few answers to questions raised :

I WISH Heidi was ours, but she's not... we've decided (sadly) against getting another dog until we're no longer renting (so it could be some time). It's just too awful trying to find a place when you own a pet, almost everywhere says No Pets.

Hubby isn't an engineer (although that would have been a good career option, too), he's a theoretical astrophysicist! And yes, he's the furry one :) He's a real softie at heart, too - Heidi was upset and whining at the door when her mummy left, so Hubby got out a mattress and lay on the floor (working on his Mac laptop) with Heidi tucked up in the crook of his arm, snuggled under the blankies, until she calmed down (first photo of Heidi in the post below) Awwwwwww :)

Finally, the Unicorn Headdress is from New Knits on the Block by Vickie Howell. The pattern isn't included in the Ravelry listing of the book, for some reason... must mention it to someone or other.

The Lara Pinwheel Top is speeding along, too - I'm almost finished the first sleeve, then there's just one sleeve to go! I'm determined to be wearing it in the near future!


  1. LOVE LOVE LOVE that solar powered thingie!!!!

  2. What a great idea!! (I want want want too!) Your a busy bunny - I don't know how you fit everything into your day!

  3. I need one that's hand-cranked. Not enough reliabe sun in this end of the world.

  4. what a great ad. Cute solar charger. Glad to hear that Dotta treatment is underway.

  5. The solar charger is such a good no-brainer idea!
