Thank Crunchy it's Friday

It's been a funny old week.

After being thoroughly coughed and sneezed on, by a very poorly looking little girl, in one of my school visits for work last week, I wasn't in the least bit surprised to find I was starting a cold over the weekend.

I was totally unprepared for a whole week with a very very sore throat and resulting disrupted sleep - plus feeling generally very sorry for myself. I don't do feeling poorly and self-indulgent very well. I get extremely cross and bored with myself.

It has meant that I've made a little more headway with the WIP targets. Two more pairs of socks were ticked off the list.

A pair for Minx....

...and a pair for the big-footed teenage Monster (these are my favourites and I'll be claiming them when they get too small for him).

Both pairs made from leftovers. Both pairs needed a ridiculous number of ends sewn in. Minx's pair alone involved the weaving in of 87 ends!

I'm now dithering between several WIPs and need to refocus. It might be the crochet blanket this weekend as that'll both keep me warm and see another tick off the list.

There was pudding last weekend. Minx did this one with very little help (interference) from me.

Kiwi pavlova.

I had some for medicinal purposes - delicious.

I'm now playing catch-up, writing Christmas cards, wrapping presents, getting the house ready for the in-laws visiting this weekend and a trip to the panto.

Sunday pudding is planned. The pastry is made. I'll be back with photos.

Pavlova is my favourite and that one looks very yummy. The socks are nice as well.

Hi! I just wanted to ask if you ever have any issues with hackers?

My last blog (wordpress) was hacked and I ended up losing
a few months of hard work due to no data backup. Do you have
any solutions to prevent hackers?

Great socks -- as always Ms. Moog! Sorry to hear you've been feeling poorly -- hope that's all out of your system by now. That pavlova looks delicious!
(And I can't help but laugh at the comment from Anon -- why yes, it does seem you have a problem mainly from that creep! Stupid hackers!)

Dear Anon,

Not sure about trouble with hackers but I seem to be having my fair share of annoying spam comments. If you would like to help me remedy this situation here is my website http://sendmeamillionspounds dot com

I came to leave a comment and then couldn't stop laughing at your reply to the spam comment! It hadn't occured to me to knit socks from all the left over bits of yarn. Brilliant... although I don't fancy weaving in all those ends. Hope you're feeling better... and great looking pud Minx!
