Oh my! Today was such a washout.
FL has a raging sore throat and his bad tooth is hurting.
I have caught the cold he started brewing on Boxing Day, which I thought was going to take him to the emergency doctor for antibiotics... but he 's still not ready to admit it.
My version of this shared illness wiped me out today. I have been bumbling around the house like a sad old lady and have been curled up on the sofa with my knitting, my book, and a box of tissues. It totally put paid to my plans for a knitterly excursion to help a friend buy yarn - unforgivable!
Luckily for me, I had some wool delivered to the door, though. This is the final instalment of my Crown Mountain Farms Sock Hop club. I had forgotten the club had four installments - I thought it was just three - so this was a lovely surprise on a miserable day. It's a perfect stonewashed denim-y blue.
And the final instalment of my SkeinQueen club also arrived. This colour is going to take a lot of getting used to. Charcoal overdyed with moss green? Hmmm... something for the man I think.
So, a woolly end to 2011.
Tonight FL gets a glass of whisky and I get a Lemsip and we will be asleep before the Bells of 2012 stop ringing. See you next year!
