Remember Me??!!

How long is it since I last posted? I can't believe where the time has gone!
Christmas preparations are going full steam ahead. We've got the tree up, courtesy of Kate who has done all the decorations.

We usually put the tree in the conservatory, its cooler in there and so the tree doesn't drop as many needles!

The other good thing is its easy to get it outside and down to the compost heap, without leaving a trail of needles!

I had to show you this photo of CarrieAnne!

I think she looks fab with her 'dreads'!!

They really seemed to give her more 'bounce', more like the old CarrieAnne! I hope shes here to stay!

Last week CarrieAnne, Andrea and myself ventured to Borders at Teeside Park, to visit the Knitting group at Starbucks. Of course we had to indulge in cakes and coffees!

Afterwards we shopped a little, and in M and S a tannoy announcement asked us to leave!(we were the only ones left in the shop!) It was a really good night, we had lots of laughs as usual and I hope we can do it again soon.

Last night, Ian and I returned to Teeside park to try and do a bit more shopping for Christmas. We got a few things but still need to get some more. Kates not doing so bad, but finding things for Tom is proving more challenging!

On the knitting front things are slow, even slower than usual. I've just started an item which is a Christmas pressie so I can't give details. I'm still plodding on with Ians socks but there just doesn't seem to be enough hours in the day.

I've got most of my cards done, but there are still a couple to make, hopefully I'll get those finished today and I'll be able to relax a little thinking at least one things done!

I'm looking forward as usual to KnitnNatter on Friday. I was convinced it was next week! I would have been gutted if I'd missed the Christmas party that Carrie Annes putting on!! I love mince pies and am quickly becoming a similar shape!!

Well, I'm going to listen to Britknitcast next and then craft room hell here I come!! (still not tidy!)

Well, you're much more organised than me. I hastily wrote my cards out last night to catch the last posting date today and I never get around to buying presents until a few days before Xmas these days. Carrie Anne looks fab in her dreads!
