Merry Christmas, Happy New Year, and happy any other celebration I have missed!
OMG! It's been far too long since my last blog post yikes! 
I know it's a bit of a cliche but I've been in a bad place : ( My health has been rotten too. After an operation and some relaxing recovery time, everything  is slowly getting back on track!
My biggest news is .........................
I passed my driving test WOO-HOO!!!!
I'm still a little scared out on the road. I've suddenly realised just how much you don't get taught. For example, when you use the petrol pump in the Tesco petrol station, you have to push a button to make the pump work. VERY VERY embarrassing on a busy Saturday afternoon! After I went to ask  the (laughing) lady why the pump wasn't working, and found out my mistake, I was far too flustered to carry on, I just got in the car, had a little cry and drove off! I didn't get any petrol that day! ( I have got the hang of it now though!)

I've only recently picked up a hook again. I just didn't feel creative at all.
I have made a couple of scarves.

Once again it's the time of year for a new blanket.

I'm nearly at the halfway point. It works up quite quickly because the pattern is really easy!

I'm not sure what has happened to the pretty background on my blog. It suddenly didn't fit.I'll have to look around and see what else I can find! 

It's soooo lovely to be back!
Till next time


  1. Hello!!
    A new year, a new blanket. Good plan!
    And that's a very cute piccie of you cat.
    And don't worry about the driving, I am a pretty good driver now, but it took me MONTHS!
    Hope you have a good 2012!
