My last day at work this year!
Tomorrow I am packing our bags to go on an activity holiday for Christmas with the kids and my First Love.
We will probably swim every day, we will definitely cycle every day (me on a trike - don't ask, I have no sense of balance!) and there are special one-off activities like junior falconry for my daughter and paintballing for my son. I have booked myself into three funky dance classes!
Then there are the homecrafty Christmassy things - we are going to make a gingerbread house, I need to embroider an elf on my daughter's Christmas stocking (see Wee Wonderfuls), and I have bought a copy of "The Wise Robin" (though for considerably less £s than this site suggests!). This is one of my favourite childhood books, to share as a Christmas Eve bedtime story - I can't wait!
I am swatching for Cinderella's stockings, but the Macedoine sock wool is going on holiday too, and I have an urgent appointment with a Hexed hat in my last skein of Maya!
It has been an amazing knitting year: 8 pairs of socks, 3 pairs of fingerless mittens, 2 baby jumpers, 2 scarves: all this after years of knitty drought!
And some sewing was done - but not as much as I planned - maybe next year.
Have a great holiday! Back next year with lots to show, I hope!
