Belated Christmas Greetings and a Happy New Year!

Oh my goodness, the time over Christmas just flew by and now it is the last day of 2008, and I can't believe it!

I had the hideous cold/flu thing over the holidays, which has really knocked me for six and I still don't feel 100%. We had a lot of family around at Christmas and while it was lovely, I am craving getting back to normal a bit now, eating normal food (God knows how much weight I've put on!) and just being in my own space. I had Lily work out how many weeks until our holiday in May, and it's 22. I can't wait!!!! Just laying by a pool in the sun reading books sounds like a dream to me right now!!!

Sorry to moan. I know plenty of people spend Christmas alone, and I wouldn't swap mine for the world.

New Year's Eve tonight. As a non alcohol drinker, it's not that big a deal to me. I'd happily don my pjs and sit and eat a take away in front of the fire. But Rob is a drinker and so we compromise. Each year some old friends of ours come over for dinner and we play games and eat delish food. My sister and brother in law are coming too, with their girls, so it should be a great evening.

Before I go, let me show you my Babette progress.

The reason I've been slow at doing this, you'll see, is because the colours just aren't doing it for me. I don't like the beige one, or the mulberry one and I'm not too keen on the orange, although it might look nice without the other 2. They're just too 60s for me. Too murky and dull. I want bright and fresh, and so I have decided to start again and design my own colour scheme a bit. The little squares I like, but not the big one. That's going.

I'm in a timewarp

OMG the time is just flying by now and I can't believe 3 weeks today will be Christmas Eve. I can't wait.

However, I just find the days so short and the nights even shorter!

Is it age?????

My Babette is coming along, and oh, for some time to take some pictures to show you. I'll try tomorrow. My hexagon is coming along more, as I SO LOVE IT!!!!!

It's frosty in the mornings here now, proper wintery, none of that in betweeny weather I hate, and we're hoping for snow tomorrow.

Sitting by the fire, crocheting, watching I'm a Celebrity with a cup of hot choc....what more could I want?
