What day is it?



I think it's Thursday isn't it? I get so confused at this time of year. I mean I know it's the 27th but is it Thursday? Wednesday? Tuesday? Just incase it is Tuesday and I've got it all wrong here's a picture of Tipsy for 'Tipsy Maybe Tuesday'. She is very nearly done, hoping to wear her on New Year's Eve. But there is one teeny setback. I don't have a 2.25 mm circular needle. Have got to cast on hundreds of stitches for the border and my little straight needle just won't cope. I can't believe I've got this far and am now falling at the last post! We have 1 shop in March that sells needles, so I'm really hoping they come up trumps for me...

Did you all have a good Christmas? I had a very nice time. Ate, knitted, slept. What more could a girl ask for?

Oh, has anyone else out there been to see Enchanted? I read the reviews in the paper and the critics seemed to love it. The trailers on the tv looked very funny, so we decided to go and watch it. It was rubbish. It was very nearly as rubbish as Shark Tale (our only other major cinema disaster). Do not waste your money people - we nearly walked out after 20 minutes to see if we could sneak into one of the other screens to watch something else. It was that bad. But am I wrong? Did you like it?

And last but by no means least - Happy Birthday to my Mum. She has been very poorly over Christmas (flu) but is slowly on the mend, having given all her germs to dad. According to mum, this is the very worst day for a birthday. Everyone clears up today, the sales all start, the rubbish gets sorted and we go back to the same old tv programmes. So we are all going over to cheer her up today - just what she needs to speed up the recovery don't you think? A daughter, son-in-law and 2 grandchildren who are noisy mud-magnets. But at least we're taking lunch (trifle for pudding too which always goes down a treat!)

Your holiday sounds much like mine; eat, knit, sleep. Nice!

Hope your Mum feels better soon. And your Dad, too, if he's caught the bug!

Tipsy looks as gorgeous as ever! Hope your Mum recovers quickly...does that mean your Dad now has flu? Hope you lot don't catch it.

Glad to hear you had a good Christmas! I actually spent quite a lot of mine knitting too and have made a hat, finished my Noro scarf and started some socks! Looking forward to Robin Hood tonight to do some more! Lucy x

P.S. I thought Enchanted was a disappointment too - the children liked it but it wasn't anywhere near as good as I had hoped.
