Nanna says some things on Facebook

Nanna says she usually says things here and posts them to our Little Brother Big Brother Facebook page. But this one’s the other way round; it’s from her FB to here. So you might see it twice. https://www.facebook.com/littlebrotherbigbrother99/ We haven’t seen it, coz too much screen time makes us silly, but our Mum sometimes checks out online stuff. From Nanna: I have several things in the Kapiti Arts and Crafts Society’s Wonders with Wool Exhibition of work by the Spinners, Weavers & Knitters and the Felters groups.

Colours of the ocean for a friend

Nanna says she couldn’t think what to get her oldest friend for her birthday. Then she said she’s not the oldest friend she’s got, but they’ve been friends for over 45 years, and we think that sounds very old.

We’re far away…

Nanna is still knitting for us, even though we’re far away now. Little Brother and Big Brother have moved to their dad’s hometown in South Korea. It’s a long way from New Zealand! Little Brother is wearing his stripy jersey already, and Nanna says she’ll send a Big Brother’s soon. She says it’s fully reversible – that means you can wear it back-to-front! (감사합니다 – gamsahamnida – Nanna!) Now they’re done, Nanna says she’s going to keep on with the scrumbles she started last year. Continue reading We’re far away…
