One of the tipi poles split, so Purple went to cut a new one... he came back after a littel while spouting blood from his face, with a greasy rag from the car pressed to his cheek. The bamboo had fallen on him and given him a nasty cut.

He insisted that I drive him to the hospital to get stitches. The hospital is a small one, we were the only people in the three bed ER, and the nurse had to phone the doctor to come in. He ambled in after about ten minutes, in t-shirt and jeans, and decided to put special tape and glue onto it rather than stitches, in an attempt to reduce the scarring. Funnily, the glue was the exact same shade of purple as his shirt!

A lovely drama to start the day, and poor Purple can't smile now.

In the evening we went to a party at Jessica's, only it was a 'child-free' party, and no one told us. So we turned up with Littletree, expecting there to be loads of kids, but every one else had left their little ones with baby sitters. Oh well. She went to sleep in the downstairs bedroom after an hour anyway.

We all drank lots of Frangelico (Jessica's tiddle of choice) and danced by the fire. I chatted with a cute woman called Button, and even got her phone number :) Purple chatted with lots of people.

One nice surprise was that Mel was there - we haven't seen her since Turkey, about two years ago... She was looking fantastic in an Anne of Green Gables dress, though missing a finger after being attacked by a dog!!!

Since we were both drinking, we decided to sleep in Sunshine, which was nice, and we all had coffee with Frangelico and cream for breakfast. It was yummy, but made me feel kind of sick after. Then I was buzzing on caffeine, and running around the house playing hide-and-seek with Littletree and practicing Capoeira with myself.

  1. Wow bamboo is full on. Did you know its leaves are used in Chinese Medicine? When dried they are good for palpitations, insomnia, agitation, tongue and mouth ulcers. Fascinitating-right??
    Car sounded like drama too!


Thanks for your lovely words, witty banter and entertaining discussion :)
