Your Final Quiz Score: 28 right out of a possible 60
The Monkey's Final Score: 10 right out of 60

Well done, you have sent the monkey to his defeat. Your score is unquestionably higher, and thus the lowly monkey has been proven once again to be humankind's intellectual inferior. Good work, however your score does leave room for improvement. We should like to see the human dominate even more completely!

You scored in the 62nd percentile.
(62% of quiz takers scored worse than you)

Thank Goodness I beat Monkey. I'd never have lived it down otherwise. He's enough of a big head as it is.

Had a bit of a difficult week so far. Due to men (well, a man). Not my DB I hasten to add, who is very lovely and fluffy. I'm not going into details, but it's all been very upsetting from my point of view (and, I suspect, from his point of view too) - lack of sleep, no appetite etc etc. And I ended up having two days off work cos I got so wound up and upset I got all depressed again.
I also suspect it's another example of women being from one planet and men from another...

But moving onto more cheerful things!
I finally found the pic of the final Feed the Children Appeal baby jumper I made. Must remember to take them to the post office. The jumper is MUCH brighter than this, but it's the usual lack of daylight problem. It's actually burgundy, lilac and variegated white stripes!

A project I worked on a few weeks back can also be revealed:


This carrot is from one of the Jean Greenhowe books (the same one as Monkey's banana) and was part of a package for Mary Anne's birthday. Mary Anne has a friend called Sarah, and I thought she might like a present too:




The carrot seems to have gone down very well!

Everything else is proceeding along. I've realised that the Broadripple socks are going to be way too small for my SIL, as they're the right size for me, so it looks like I've gained a pair of socks! ;-)

Anyone else been watching Bleak House? I'm really enjoying it now, although it took a couple of episodes to get into it. I haven't read the book (not really into Dickens, having only read 1.5 before!)

Katie,

I'm so sorry to hear of your upsetting encounter. I react the same way to difficult situations so I can understand what you are coping with. I hope you will be feeling a little better soon and the bad feelings will wear away.

Sarah looks happy to be on your site! I love that jumper you knit also. Very cute.
hugs

((((Hugs)))) - hope you're feeling a little more settled by now - I'm another one who goes off food and can't sleep when my emotions are taking over.

Gorgeous carrot - I'm glad Sarah likes it :-)

And I meant to ask - the Feed the Children jumpers - do you know if you can send just any jumper - I've got masses of them lying around that people have sent for Ruth (most of them more tasteful than the ones you've seen!). The one in your pic is very cute.

Hi Daisy,
I hope you're feeling better now. Men eh? Unfortunatly when I get stressed I eat-grr! Wish it was the other way round, with being home alone and trying to buy and sell a house, if it was the other way around, I'd be skinny by now.

The jumper is cute and the carrot and bunny? ace!

Are you sure you didn't subconsiously make the socks too small for SIL? ;o)

Hi Katie, Sorry to hear about your upsetting experience. Sounds like a home-made soup (very comforting) and a lavender bath to help you sleep is in order. Doesn't always work though. Emotional upsets can be very painful to deal with.
The jumper is adorable and I can tell that both Mary Anne and Sarah both liked the carrot. In fact, sarah looks positively covetous holding it in the photo! Big hugs sent your way.

Totally hooked on Bleak House.

I like Great Expectations. Having watched the film many times I finally read the book this year and enjoyed that. I then went on and started to read Oliver Twist but found it too hard a slog. Will finishing watching Bleak House and give that a try and move on to David Copperfield.
