Catching Up

Ooops, didnt realise how long it had been since I last posted on here. Been doing my usual thing, working, moaning at kids for not tidying up after themselves, walking the dog, knitting and thinking about christmas and how strange its gonna be this year.

Still finding it difficult being in a quiet house now. You dont realise how quiet the house is till the kids pop in for a few minutes then go out for hours on end. But I guess thats them growing up so you just have to get on with life I suppose.

Have been trying to design my own Mobius Head Scarf and its coming out ok but am a little bored with all that stocking stitch. Hope its worth all that when its done. Am trying to think up of some patterns that I can make some gifts but when I see the price of the yarn, it gives me the hump because it brings me down to reality. One throw that I just love is called 'Madras Throw' by Kaffe Fassett and to purchase all the yarn for it, without the pattern which is free by the way, will cost over £200. Isnt that disgusting! :(

Theres also this thing I have been wondering about and yes, its a big change of subject. How do women who havent had the marriage thing and kids thing cope with being 'alone'. How do you get up in the morning, go to work, come home and do it all again the next day? Also, do these women socialise outside of work? Its such an odd question but needs answering to help me get through each day.

Anyway, am off to try think of something to do or I may even watch a knitting show on you tube.
