I had just about given up on getting here before the Seasonal Holidays arrived but here I am, the weather is cold(ish) and very wet (again!) so today I decided was going to be MY DAY.
So what have I been up to since I last posted? Well I've been knitting like crazy, trying to get a sweater ready for Little H, I've finished the back and started the front, this is a 3 colour version of the lemon one I made earlier and couldn't finish due to running out of the yarn (now discontinued, so I think I may now have to unpick it :-((). I've tried my hand at Redwork using a cute little free pattern that I got from the lovely Lena over at Stitching Cow blog.
I got up at 6am on Sunday and decorated the tree, then marzipan'd the cakes before cooking lunch, after which DS and S arrived staying till 6.30pm.
Then it was Monday again! DH and I went Shopping in Yate, on getting home I got a message from Mum to say the washing machine had flooded the kitchen - twice, so off we went round there, turns out she had not set it right then opened the door before the spinner has done its job. That sorted I caught the 2.15pm bus to The Mall at Cribbs Causeway to do more present shopping getting home at 6.30pm. Luckily I had grabbed a bite to eat in the Mall so was able to fall into the chair and promptly fell asleep!! Zzzzzz
Getting up early again on Tuesday I managed to ice the 3 cakes before DD, Little H and the boys arrived for the day.
All that remains now is to get this little lot wrapped, labelled and delivered before the Big day.
