New Year Whatnots

To be honest i don't do New Years Resolutions but i have set up some sort of want list for 2008. When i say want list i mean things i want to either improve or compleate by the end of 2008 or by the end of certain months.

knitting related i want to Destash as my yarn mountain is rather large and finish stuff i've already started. I have lots of chunky stuff to knit up hats for the girls and myself and i'm on a scarf for my fil and one for my mil. Then there are socks. I have 1 childs one which i'm halfway through the second sock but it won't fit any of my two now as i knitted it too tight. I have embossed leaves to finish (actually im on the foot of the second sock so not long). Then there is my anatomically correct toe sock of which i need to do the left foot (it is otp).

Other clothing wise, i have my mirtal which is a job and a half but also a way of inspiring me to loose the weight i need to loose so my destash includes my thickening waistline as well as my growing yarn mountain lol. Georgie will aslo want her green poncho this year so i'd best finish crocheting that up.

There is also the crochet blanket i started in the first place back in july 2005 when i first gave up smoking. That is one thing i want to finish and then give to my nain.

Like i said somewhere near my mirtal i've set myself a whole year to lose at least 21lb and may have a dry january but will have to wait and see on that one lol!! I also want to gut and declutter on room a month and keep it tidy and orgainsed so will need to retrain myself not to just dump stuff where i can. Must learn to put things away which is hard when you've been dumping stuff for 37 years.

think that may be enough wants for 2008 for changes wise apart from Hinckley United playing better and winning some games!

Oh Fudge!!!!!

Well it's that time of year again where lots of things go wrong lol. So far this week i've lost my wallet. Luckly for me i'd taken out my credit card but i've had to cancel my switch cards etc and i've lost my warrent card (cub leader warrent) but no money thank goodness. Then to top it off my home phone isn't working. I don't know if it's the phone or the line as i've got no dial tone. Now it's been playing up anyways but i was hoping to last until after christmas before buying a new phone but think i'll have to sort something out.

As for christmas knits, well i'd had all these wonderful plans and have i done them, have i heck!!! I've done my sisters and her dp's and then i've done a scarf for my mother and i'm doing another scarf for my step dad as stocking fillers.

kids wont' get their scarfs till after new year at this rate but then they dont want them as a christmas present anyways lol.

A good note is that i break up a week today for christmas and it will be the first time since being on maternaty leave, after having Georgina in 2000, that i've not worked christmas. I'm looking forward to it!

right enough waffle for now. Will get round to posting a piccie of all my christmas knits and stuff another day

have fun!
