Here it is..my Birthday/Christmas present - and it is sending me 'ga ga' I love it so. It is a Pure Evoke 3 digital radio, and I have wanted one for about 18 months after reading an article about it months before it was released. I had hoped the price would drop a bit but I have to say it is worth every penny. It pauses, rewinds and records, and the screen tells you what song is playing etc. I have used constantly since my birthday - recording all my favourites and then listening to them whilst sewing. I can even plug in my i-pod.
Now, I have spent a huge amount of time sewing this past week as poor Alice has been quite ill since Saturday and has not been able to go to school. So that has meant I have been stuck at home all week. I've put the time to good use and finished my Christmas sewing and even finished the bed cover in the above picture...a work-in-progress for the last 6 months! Poor Alice, she is getting quite distressed incase she doesn't get better in time for next Saturday when she and all the other grandchildren, are off to Lapland with Granny and Poppa.
We are getting out the decorations this weekend. I'm hoping that will make me feel more Christmassy, as I keep forgetting it is already the 8th. I'm still in November in my mind. Hopefully my next post will show a calm, serene, decorated home...
