Which Positive Quality Are You?
Your Result: Peace

You are Peace. Peace is the opposite of anger and destruction. Peace is calm. It tears down barriers; it brings us together. Peace is a noble goal sought by the good of heart. "May peace prevail on earth."

I saw these two pictures on other blogs and I thought they were lovely , so that is the only reason they are on here . I love paintings like these they make me feel all emotional although I don't really know why.
I am very busy knitting at the moment I have three things on the go , a funky fur pink baby blanket, which I started a while ago, for a friend of Carly's, I am spending the day with Carly friday so I would like it to have it finished by then, we shall see!, next I am knitting a jumper for Jade in Tufty I have done the back and one sleeve and lastly another pair of trousers for Darcey, I have replaced the plume this time for Wendy Cosmic, I apologise to any yarn snobs who may have passed by but they will look lovely and will last my washing
Not much else happening at the moment, Joe has a football trial with Southend United on Saturday which should be interesting. Oh and also he has got himself a paper round and so far he has been doing really well getting up at 6am every morning so far without complaining.
Hubby's internet business is doing well, we sell boxing clothes and equipment and it has really taken off, in case anyone is interested this is the web address.
Thats all for now.

Here are some photo's of Amber modelling her new cardigan, and one of it on it's own. For some reason she wasn't in a very happy mood, although she does like the cardigan,
This was knitted using Sidar Denim ultra which used 8 and 10mm needles a very easy and quick knit.

Hi, here are a couple of snow pictures from last Thursday when school was cancelled due to snow stopping the teachers getting to school, the kids weren't too upset. Don't ask me why Jade has her hat perched on the top her head like that she looks really weird.

I have finished Amber's cardigan, just need to put the buttons on and take some pics and have also started a jumper for Jade in Tufty.

I am surviving the school holidays so far, all went to dentist today for check and everybody was fine and no work needed doing for anyone. I have been buying yarn on ebay like nobody's business, I think I seriously have an addiction, maybe I should join some sort of support group.
I am also going through a stage of wanting another baby, and that is possibly more serious than the yarn problem.LOL.

Well I took some lovely pictures, or so I thought, of Darcey wearing the trouser suit but it turns out I took video's instead, and I have no idea how to load them on here, so I shall have to try again.

Had a busy time as usual last friday I met up with Carly in Grays, as it was her birthday on Saturday, she was 19, that was a nice day, had lunch and spent money on her which she loves. The baby Harrison is such an angel, none of mine have ever been that good! I took some pic's of him on my phone, but I can't work out how to load them on to the computer!! My relationship with Carly has always been a strange one, she tends to only contact me when she wants something, but I will say she is a fantastic mum and it doing a great job and coping so well with Harrison.

I have signed up for an evening class starting in April, it is called textiles, or something like that, but basically it is dressmaking for beginners. I did it at school and was quite good passed my exam and But I haven't done any since and I would love to make the girls some pretty party frocks, so I thought I would give it a go, it is for 10 weeks, and it is at my old senior school, so it will also be nostalgic. I am really looking forward to that and hopefully I will have some things to show on here.

Ambers diabetes has been up and down lately, I have upped her insulin as she has definately grown and hopefully that will calm things down again.
Not a lot happening with the other kids, just the usual household drama's.

I am in my final couple of weeks of looking after my friends little boy, so I have to go and pick him up from playschool soon. It is half term next week so should get more knitting time and not constantly have to shoot here and there.
