Happy Belated Christmas and Happy New Year to you all my friends. Has it really come and gone already? I seem to have been working my butt off for weeks and I don't think I sat down for more than 30 minutes on Christmas Eve and I was still wrapping presents at lunchtime on Christmas Day... deary me. I'm sorry I didn't blog about the joys of running around like a maniac with a crazed look in my eyes; but perhaps it was better that way! We had 8 of us in this tiny house then a couple of days without visitors then my father come, who is still with us. I have now managed to draw breath and finally sit down and attempt this -
a knitted Fox Terrier from the wonderful book Best in Show by Sally Muir and Joanna Osborne (knit your own dog) I got the book for my birthday and have saved it for Christmas. I haven't knitted for years so it's been a lovely change.
And snow? Well the whole country had been brought to complete standstill but down here in Devon in our seaside town we only got a lightish dusting. Grr.
Just 20 minutes or so up the road it was thick but not near me. Oh no. I'm beginning to think I'm a repellent for snow I really am. And we didn't even get a single day off school! It has been lovely and cold though.
My next post will show you what my darling husband bought me for Christmas and some exciting news...well exciting to me perhaps not so exciting to anyone else so don't lose any sleep over it just in case you are bitterly disappointed and hate me!
