About sums things up at the moment really - after a fairly manic week at work, I got on the bus to go home on Friday.Sadly it wasn't actually MY bus - & almost 2 hours (yes, 2 HOURS) later, I ended up back in the centre of Leeds again, back where I started. Was a bit of an adventure, especially when the (very empty) bus pulled in, the driver turned to me, pointed out that this was where it terminated - & that we were now in Bradford. Hmmmmm.....

Crafty arty wise, have started a rather nice looking cabled cardi with pinted edges (will try to find a pic), much chunkier wool than I usually use, but it's going together ok so far....have had abit of a knitting pattern / magazine / wool buying spree lately, so am spoilt for choice.
Lots of chrimbo / birthday pressies to get finished too.

Am pondering whether or not I can manage to do justice to painting a large portrait of my much missed nan & grandad, to give to my mum for Christmas, will have a try at sketching it out & see how rubbish I am!

And sewing wise, am going to cut out & start a black velvet pirate coat tomorrow, to be lined in purple shimmery 'stuff' (recognised technical term) which is my mission to get finished by this time next week, ready for Literacy Focus Week at work - PIRATES! (the joy of being Head of English!).

wish me luck....

here goes...

Something I have been meaning to get round to for ages, my own little blog - although it's more of a bloglette at the moment.
Mutterings, musings & a bit in between. Liberally scattered with typos (not spelling mistakes of course), stress busting mini rants, & frighteningly gleeful witterings about my knitting, sewing & painting exploits - quite honestly, I would run away right now if I was you.
