Right I have a few pictures to post, I did manage to finish Amber's red bolero, but didn't take any picture! I have finished a pair of trousers for Darcey and only have a sleeve left of Jades jumper. I have had a bad cold for the last week and yesterday was the first day I actually felt ok.
The other pictures are of Amber on the Great Fire of London day they all had to dress up as if they were from the 17th century I think She looks cute.lol.
I am finding it really hard to decide what to knit next, I have enjoyed knitting two things at once, I supose I should be thinking of spring or summer items now as the weather should be changing soon. I think I will have to go through the stash and patterns and see what I can come up with, I fancy doing something in 4ply cotton as I have quite a bit of that, we shall see.
I am so looking forward to the next two weeks Easter holidays, no rushing around,pure bliss!!

Well today is my birthday, and I have £150 and I am so going to spend it on wool or yarn I don't care what you call it.!!

I am actually quite stressed as far as knitting goes as Amber has to wear red to school on Friday, as it is Comic Relief day, so I decided that as she doesn't actually have anything decent to wear in red I would knit her a little bolero in red Eskimo wool, I decided this last thursday thinking a week and one day would be plenty of time, but as is typical I can't seem to knit without making mistakes I have redone one front and one sleeve already I have a sleeve and a front left, and I seem to need to be out everyday and evening, and so on a day when I should be able to do as I please and enjoy myself I have to knit like a lunatic to get the thing finished.lol. Oh well, it could be worse at least I HAVE to knit.

Not much else happening, I had a meeting at Ambers school to discuss the future of schools and how they are run for a big research project going on at Cambridge University, the website is www.primaryreview.org.uk it is very important and could affect how schools are run and children are taught in the future,and can you believe it I was the only parent that turned up, so it was just the Headteacher and myself discussing the future of Education.!!! I really do wonder what some parents think, do they not want any responsibility for their kids education or what!!

Well thats about it no pictures at mo, I am going to try and enjoy being 41.
God bless.

Just a quick update, nothing much has happened here in truth. I have ground to a halt with all my knitting, the pink baby blanket turned into a nightmare, I didn't notice,( don't ask how!!), that I had dropped about 10 stitches at the end of one row so about 6 rows later I realised what had happened and that fur stuff is impossible to pick up once you drop it, so I have thrown it in a bag for now.

I am not feeling too good today, head and neck ache so I am not doing a great deal was going to meet Carly today but I have taken a rain check until I feel a bit better.

I have had 3 school governor meetings this week and I haven't seemed to have a moment to myself, Hubby and Joe are off to a boxing show tonight so hopefully I will be able to sit and knit once all the girls are in bed. I can dream, can't I?
