oh monday, i dont love you very much

Hard day at work, the kids were very difficult & most of the day seemed to be spent, yet again, outside Time Out. Then the bus didn't come. So by the time I got home I was very cold, very tired & aching - my heart tablets are making my legs hurt - yes yes yes, I am indeed feeling sorry for myself!

It's a night of knitting ahead, am more than half way through this, in black of course (from Fitted Knits) - currently using up some ridiculously cheap wool with silvery specks in, & it looks surprisingly good! It's the first time I have stuck with a top-down raglan stylie, & so far so good (if I never ever mention it again, it means it went terribly wrong).
Sewing, must do some sewing - my head is full of ideas, it's just finding the energy to set them free! My sleep's been dreadful lately, maybe a good night's kip tonight will give me enough nergy to get some more etsy bits finished this space

The next mission is knitting this....

I just won this on ebay (eyes left) - Debbie Bliss cotton /angora - & when it arrives I am planning to start knitting this (eyes right) : Bella Paquita (Sexy Knitting Clkub knitalong)

A bit ambitious - ok, a lot ambitious - for me, but the wool looks lovely, I might just wear rich purple (I usually wear black, with black), & my knitting is improving all the time.

Very very windy here still, the washing line fell down earlier complete with white bedding, bringing down the hanging baskets & a large amount of compost - lovely mix. Compared with many this weekend I suspect I have got off lightly. Grammatically incorrect. Bovvered?

Work tomorrow, oh joy of joys. I love it, really I do, but it is soooo exhausting - either it is work or I am just getting old! Swimming cossie will be in bag just in case theres no staff meeting & I can squeeze in a quick swim, am aiming at 50+ lengths a week, seriously need to shift some lard.

craftylady, its all your fault!

After a certain someone told me ' It's a good job you dont have your own blog where we can add replies' - I remembered that I DO have said blog - and that it was time I actually started to use it.
So from now on (a sort of late New Year's Revolution) I am going to try to add something to it it, at least once a week. Not that i think that anyone will read it, but to let some of the sludge & insanity from the day ooze its way out of my poor little head.

So without more ado - I am now going to go into town ;-)

(it's payday, the sales are drawing to an end & I need food)
(ok, ok, so strictly speaking I got paid yesterday & already attacked the sales, 3 Laura Ashley black tops, shoes from Clarks, a book stash from Borders & a load of makeup from Dior, but a girl has to do...)
