What a cold week its been so far. This morning was particularly chilly when I got up. A quick peek through the curtains showed the world has turned white & slightly sparkly. After wrapping my dressing gown tightly around me I ventured out into the garden to feed the birds and break the ice on their bird bath.
When its this chilly a girl needs to keep warm - sometimes keeping warm means a clash of colours, much to the boys amusement;
And of course mugs of hot chocolate with a topping of marshmallows are an essential too;
Lastly at the weekend, I was chatting to my middle niece (aged 9) and I asked her what she would like for Christmas. I was expecting a reply that included books or something for her growing Barbie collection, instead she surprised me and asked that I knit her a scarf! So yesterday morning I headed into town to the yarn shop and chose something I know she will love;
Its a super-chunky and using 12mm needles means that I've actually knitted through 2 balls and have made a start on the 3rd. This will leave me enough left over to add pockets to keep little hands warm.
Right off to tidy the kitchen, nag homework to be done and then settle down to an evening of Kirstie and Turnback the High Street :)
