went with a swing. He was very excited and thought his presents were all great, especially the wrapping paper. I couldn't get the flash to work on my camera so all the pictures are dark orange, this is one of the best:
Noah and his granny (my Mum) eating shortbread. They all went off to the Christingle service at a local church, but I stayed behind to have a snooze on the sofa (as I've still got tonsillitis). Actually this was a good excuse to play with Noah's toys without him grabbing them off me. This one is cool:
You bonk the end on the ground and it makes all sorts of noises! I could have played with it for hours (how old am I?!)
On the subject of tonsillitis - the antibiotics haven't done anything this time (they always have before) but it seems to be going gradually. I listened to Check up on Radio 4 yesterday, which totally put me off having a tonsillectomy (and also the waiting list is probably about 12 years so it's not like I'd get rid of the tonsils that quickly). Have done only half a day's work so far this month, which means I'll have to give the January sales a miss. Although that's a good thing as I could do with using up some of my stash before I run out of space...
Knitting is proceeding apace. I went to London yesterday to spread some tonsillitis germs around as many places as possible and got on well with my SIL's second sock on the train. I've just turned the heel on that, and also on my brother's second sock - 9 days to go, will I make it?! The hot water bottle cover is on the final section, although I need to find it some buttons and ribbon. (possible trip to Boyes tomorrow after Knit Lincs?)
And here's Misty Garden - finished, blocked and hanging up in proper light so the colour comes out much as it's meant to!
Has anyone been listening to David Copperfield on Radio 4? I've been enjoying the story parts, but I'm getting really irritated by the beginning/ending/background music - which is really just a woman wailing. Or am I being really picky?!
Oh and you don't get as many funny looks knitting socks on two circs on the train as you do using DPNs!
