ahoy! gosh, i haven't blogged for ages, sorry! this full time work stuff is draining me.
not a lot has happened lately. I'm STILL knitting those sheep. they're taking longer than expected as I'm not getting proper lunch breaks at the moment, and i was going to dedicate lunch times to knitting my sheep. never mind!
the family went for a meal last week, for nanna and daddy's birthday. the service was soooo slow, but the food was yum yums. here's some pics:
Lucy and Tom (Tom is my brother, Lucy is his wife), Nanna, Mother, Me and Robbie
Nan and Mum
Me and Rob
I found this little fella in work a couple of days ago:
he has a little chip on his head (bless him!) and he was originally part of a set. his wife got sold, so i wanted to give him a good home. he now looks after my embroidery threads:
i love him very much! apparently they were made to put false teeth in :S
i found this little owl too! I've named him Humphrey and he says hello!
i FINALLY got the fairisle knickers i wanted from topshop! YAY!
They make me feel Christmasy, which i hate... it's not even November yet! I was shocked to see that someone in my road has actually started putting xmas lights up outside their house and in their garden... I'm not impressed! i remember when people didn't start getting christmasy till about 2 weeks before Christmas day. now it seems to happen nearly 2 MONTHS before.
anyway, on to something a bit more lovely! look at these treats!!!
brownies baked in an orange skin! i REALLY want to try this. has anyone done it? i would like to know if they end up tasting like chocolate orange? yum yum yum. my vegan brownies would taste sooo good like that.
i don't have an awful lot to show for myself today :( but tomorrow i will post some lovely photo's of what i ACTUALLY did today (i haven't uploaded them yet you see). my knitting group did The Bed-In at the Bluecoat today. John Lennon style! more info on it in the next post!
so i shall end with some nice pictures and this cardigan that I'm wanting from Miss Selfridge:
