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.
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.
