I may have realised that four hyped up boys and two equally excited little girls does not make for a good night's sleep.
At least we have a few months to recover before we have to do the same for Minx's birthday!!
P2 - Feeling like a zombie on Saturday morning was not the best, especially as Minx had a party to go to on Saturday afternoon.
There was no way I could have coped with any form of retail transaction so I got out the sewing machine, dusted off my befuddled brain and made a quick zippy pouch for the birthday girl's present.
P3 - Mr Postman delivered a little cheer on Saturday morning with these beautifully wrapped parcels from the lovely Mrs Twiggy.
I had completely forgotten that I had signed up for a PIF on Twiggy's blog, so this was a lovely surprise.
The Green & Black's has been
scoffed sampled already, the decorations are all ready to go up and the mulled wine sachet is highly unlikely to last until Christmas!
Thank you for my lovely goodies Twiggy :-)
Now, the idea with the PIF is that I pay it forward to three more people.
So, if you would like to receive a little PIFfy parcel from me - highly unlikely to be before Christmas but definately in the next 12 months - then just leave me a comment on this post saying 'Yes please'....or words to that effect :-)
P4 - I did it!!!!!!!!!
I really really did it!!!!
Look what I did!!!!!!!!
Thanks to Team GB for beating the Aussie medal tally (by one medal!!) and thanks mostly to my lovely Aussie friend Mrs TrashIdon'tcareifyouareapolicemanyoushouldn'tbeparkingthere
for buying me the most beautiful sock yarn, I have finally beaten my nemesis and knitted a pair......A PAIR....not one.....but a PAIR of socks!!!!
The can of worms is now well and truly open.
I'm already up to the heel flap on a pair of Christmas socks for Monster and have the wool ready for Minx's pair.
Even Moogsdad seemed mildly impressed with them.
He'd better watch out 'cos I might make him some too!!!
