January Blahs

Every January I feel blah and that's the only way I can describe it. It's not really the weather or taking down the Christmas decorations or the fact that it's my birthday but it probably is a combination of all of these.

I always dislike taking down the Christmas tree & lights & feel that everything looks really dreary when they're gone. I suppose I could put up less decorations so that I miss them less but I really doubt that will happen.

And I thnk with regard to my birthday that I feel blah as it's the end of my year & the start of a new one. I think that maybe your energy cycle relates to that so by next week I'll be back to my normal jolly self!!

I have however been keeping busy - we went to see AvP-R yesterday which was much, much better than the first AVP, I enjoyed it & have always been an Alien/Predator fan.

I've finished an baby jacket for a friend. It's a Debbie Bliss pattern, in Patons Washed Haze with the cutest button from House of Fraser.

Auspicious start to the year

Happy New Year everyone! I hope you had a fab New Year's Eve, we had some great fireworks & we might have seen some aliens or maybe they were flares that someone else had let off - who knows??

Today hasn't been the best start to the year as I woke myself up during the night moving my dressing table across the room, I vaguely remember searching for something behind it. Then my alarm clock went off an hour early except it wasn't an hour early because I'd managed to put the time an hour forward during the night. I guess the rest of the year is going to be an improvement on that & let's be honest if that's the worst my year gets, I'm very lucky :)

I've been organising my stash over the past couple of days & updating my Ravelry profile to show my stash, so if you're on Ravelry, take a look.

I seem to have got a bit carried away with the purpley shades, so I'm probably going to exchange the Denim Aran for a more bluey-grey shade.
