Advent Sock day 22

For me it was a day of preparations: listing, shopping, cleaning, organising.
For FL, a day of sleeping.
Last night it took me 40 minutes to wake him to go to bed.  I was getting quite alarmed after half an hour, when even raising his arms above his head and swinging them gently was not enough to wake him.
Today he slept all morning, right through to 3pm.
I picked up The Girl from the station at 6, and he managed to stay awake through dinner, took his pills, and fell asleep again.
Return to sock B. Today our theme is Beatrix Potter, the famous author, illustrator, and natural scientist, who died on 22 December 1943. Do this test and pick the colour of the day from the character you resemble. 

You're Mrs Tiggy-Winkle the hedgehog! You care a lot about working hard at everything you do but always find time for a good chat and a cup of tea, as friends are very important to you and you love to socialise!
The suggested colour for Mrs Tiggy Winkle is pink, to match her dress.  I had just finished my sparkly socks, so scavenged some of the leftover yarn - the pastel shades remind me a lot of Beatrix Potter.

The sock is looking great. Glad to hear of an uneventful day, and thanks for the link to the quiz. Turns out I'm Jemima Puddleduck. Not sure I'm flattered by that but I've always liked her outfit.

Snap, I'm Mrs Tiggywinkle too. Glad you have some help and support now.

I'm also a Mrs. Tiggywinkle, but I suspect that's only because Beatrix Potter never did a book about a honey badger.

What's the Beatrix Potter character who has the patience of Job to weave in all those ends on the Advent socks?

Glad your Girl is there with you now.

I turned out to be Mrs T too - will this be a defining characteristic of your blog readership I wonder?
Glad things appear to be stable just now. R

I was so worried that FL had been sent home without a care plan in place and now all seems to be well. Glad you're family are home with you for Christmas. BTW you've inspired me to knit my very first pair of sox I've not got very far and it's taking me a while to get used to diddy needles. My mum taught me to knit when I was about 6 hrs old and have been knitting on and off for many many years. Enjoy your Christmas together. Will be thinking of you with love xx

I wish you and your family did not have such a difficult pathway ahead of you. However I hope that you will find joy and family warmth during this Christmas season.
