I have finished Darcey's set so I thought I would post a quick pic, I hope to get a picture of her wearing them sometime, but I thought this would do for now.

Right well no knitting photo's as yet, but a couple of others one is the snow outside our bedroom window, which is really quite sad as there isn't much at all, then a couple of pictures of Darcey, trying to be a fairy, but I am not sure she is pulling it off.

Have done a fair bit of Darcey's set, hope to finish this weekend. I have discovered I am addicted to buying knitting patterns, I am definately buying ones now that I know I will never use, oh well it is slightly cheaper than yarn!

Had a bad morning Jade has swimming lessons on a friday and she hates it so we had tears and tantrums and then Joe decided he couldn't get out of bed, I thought I was never going to get out the door, but finally we did and then when we get to Amber's school I realise I had forgotten it was wear Trainers to school day, Oh well she wasn't the only one in shoes so I didn't feel so bad.LOL.

I have just done loads of washing, as usual, so I think I might have a quick knit, I shall ignore the ironing, hoovering and dusting, as usual!

Another pretty ok weekend and week, It was Jades's 8th birthday on Friday, so I let her stay home which is really unlike me, but she had swimming that day and she really hates it and I feel it is so mean to make someone do something they really hate on their birthday. On Saturday hubby me and the kids all went to Lakeside shopping centre for Jade to spend her birthday money all £130, we also had to get Joe a new pair of School shoes which was the only reason he came out with us all. Jade had a great time and as her birthday treat meal she chose Macdonalds, of all the places she could have chosen!! Oh well, it was what she wanted. For some reason I never seem to remember my camera lately so still no pics.
Knitting is going ok I have finished the back of the jumper which matches the bottoms I have already made for Darcey, I am actually really pleased with them I know they are pretty basic but I had to make a few changes to the pattern to get them the correct size so I am pretty pleased they turned out ok.
I have just been surfing the net for free cross stitch patterns for the kids to use in my class at the school and I found some great ones on
she also has some good knitting patterns as well.
Anyway thats it for now, I see I didn't get many comments again, so I can only assume the people are coming to this blog by accident.LOL.

I actually had quite a good weekend, Saturday I knitted most of the day, in between doing the general jobs around the house that have to be done every day, and it was nice I really enjoyed myself I am knitting a top and trousers set for Darcey and I got all of the trousers knitted and sunday night I started on the top, wouldn't it be great If everyday was like that. It was actually the anniversary of my mum's death on sunday so really it should have been a bad weekend, but that was why I chose to do something I really enjoyed rather than just getting on with borring old life, sort of as a tribute saying I am going to make the most of today, I don't know if that makes sense, it does to me!

I have noticed on other blogs that last week was delurking week, I didn't bother putting a notice up as I don't think I get many readers anyway, but If by any chance anyone does read this I would love for them to say hello, it is so sad getting 0 comments all the time.LOL.

I have been very poor with the photo's I have a new phone also now, an LG chocolate pink, which I love, I am hoping to work out how to get pictures on here from there as well, but as they say, don't hold your breath?

Well that's about it for now. See you soon.

Well its 2007 but to tell the truth I don't feel any of that get up and go that usually comes with a new year and all the rest of it. I just can't seem to get myself motivated about anything. I am really missing my mum at the moment, I had been told by people it gets worse not better, and I think they may have been right it will be 4 years on January 14th since she died. I know there is no cure for how you feel when someone you really need and love die's but just at the moment it seems extra tough to deal with.

Anyway enough of the depressing stuff I have no pictures to show but should have soon, I am also finding it hard to choose what projects to do, but I will get myself organised soon. Hubby gave me money for christmas so I bought a knitting bag and needle roll in John Lewis at Bluewater on New Years Day, and also a couple of patterns, ( as if I didn't have enough). I have also ordered some odd balls of yarn here and there off of internet sellers, which I will show when they arrive.

Not much else to report, the kids all went back to school this week so things are begining to return to normal. I am going to be a Governor at Ambers school as well now so that should bring some interesting stuff my way. I am also only looking after my friends little boy until Feb then I want to do something!! Maybe some studying or Charity work, we shall see.

Anyway a belated Happy New Year.
