for my cascade to start my Babette. But I have discovered something to keep me going in the meantime. Check it out here on Ravelry or look at Ruth's beautiful version here. I have loads of odds and sods of DB cashmerino left and so it'll be a good use of them. Ruth has helpfully written instructions too, for the crocheting novices among us (me) so I am planning to give it a try this afternoon when I have an hour.
Emily, out exchange student arrived on Saturday from New Jersey. She is a lovely girl and fits in nicely. We hadn't bargained on the differences in language though, there are so many!!!! Chocolate, thankfully, is universal!
Great news on the Weight Watchers front. My area manager is really pleased with my figures and has said I can open a new meeting earlier than we had planned. Originally she had said after Christmas, but I am opening it on the 19th November!!!!!! I'm very excited.
I am also very excited that Obama was elected last night. What a great choice America made. I'm interested to see what changes he makes, but so pleaaed that McCain didn't win. (sorry to any Republicans out there!!)
Fireworks night here tonight. We had to explain it to Emily. Strange how something so normal for us sounds so ridiculous when you try to explain it out loud.....
