It all gets in the way
The last couple of weeks have been a little bit of a rollercoaster. I've been to two weddings, travelled thousands of miles and even snuck in a little trip abroad in between. Not exactly my idea of a relaxing weekend and working week! Anyway, I now have a few evenings to relax before I'm off again. But more on this next week as it is someone's birthday treat!
I've found that disappointingly, I haven't turned to my crafting to relax. When I have had a few minutes to myself, I have spent them slouching in front of the TV. Give me anything, The Apprentice, Masterchef, Eastenders, Waterloo Road, I'll gobble anything you throw at me.
My cross stitch has officially stooled. But on the plus side, I have finally started on my ripple blanket. Much easier than I thought it would be, The Girl you have to sit down and give it another go, it's honestly not rocket science! Trust me, if I can do it, you definitely can. I like how the pattern is easily remembered. And choosing what colour to use next is quite fun, although as you can see, I haven't had to do that too often just yet.
Oh goodness, is it bad to long for 2011 already?! Honestly, the thought of all the end of year malarky, all the hassle that goes with Christmas, and then New Year, arghh!!! What, am I having a little pre-holiday rant? Most possibly. I hope you don't mind too much :-)
