Out with the old and in with the new

Well so much for writing a post every day this month. Total fail. It's been a really hectic and full month of stuff. I am glad it's almost over.

So goodbye to 2012.  It wasn't a bad year really. The weather left a lot to be desired but it hasn't been as bad around here as in some places so mustn't grumble.

As usual been thinking about the year ahead and here's what is on my plan.

  1. Knit exclusively from stash (seriously I need to economise and yarn is stashed all over the place in this house)
  2. Declutter (do I really need to hang on to 5 year old knitting mags?)
  3. Rein in my finances and be more frugal
  4. Go to Scotland (this is in hand)
  5. Go to see a show or a concert
  6. Camp more often for odd weekends
January Challenge

Walk 100 miles.  I will walk 100 miles during this month.  Starting tomorrow.  Quite excited about this one.

Still pondering a challenge for February.  Will keep you posted.

It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas

So I finished the mini Christmas stockings just about in time. Well about 10 pm! They are now hanging off the beams in two lots of twelve and looking very festive indeed. There are sweeties in them too as they are sort of a reusable advent calendar. Just lacking some numbers! Will sort that for next year. I think some little bells could be cute as well!

Watching a Led Zepplin concert on DVD with himself. Now they are rock Gods as we all know, and the performance is outstanding and everything, but oh how I will be relieved when it's finished! I only really know a handful of the well known songs and all the others sound the same to me. Himself claims it's because I am a girl! I say it' s like listening to a steel band. Fab for the first few numbers and then it all just sounds the same!

Signed up for the daily blogging again this month. I may not succeed as easily though because there are a lot of events coming up in the evenings. We shall see.
