What’s Hot & What's Not

It's been a pretty good week for me ... lots of good things happening and lots to look forward to.

What’s Hot

Knitting. On Monday Miss C’s boyfriend mentioned it was his birthday this Saturday coming … which saw a quick trip to Morris & Sons and two balls of nubbly Aran equivalent later I’ve started the Boyfriend Hat from Ravelry. Kinda fitting don’t you think? (PS Photos tomorrow. It's looking so good.)

Lake Macquarie. Mum and I head off to Newcastle in less than a fortnight and I'm really starting to look forward to it. Questions though: any ideas for places to visit, op shops, places to eat. We're renting a car while we're there so getting around's not a problem and we're staying between Maitland and Lake Macquarie. Any and all ideas are welcome.

Soon hopefully we'll be seeing scenes like this ... beautiful sunsets on glorious water.

Lovely crafty internet people. I’ve been getting such lovely comments from people recently and I'm loving this. Thank you everybody.

Work. Work is pretty amazing at the moment ... I hate to jinx myself but things are going pretty well and I can feel myself easing into the role.

What’s not

I’ve lost my reading mojo. I don’t know where I left it because I’d love to get it back. I miss immersing myself in another world but it’s kinda good in one way because I have a lot of other things on my plate at the moment.

The cold. Is it just me or is anybody else sick of the cold ... and the dark for that matter? It seems to have been worse this year, maybe because we're getting more rain. I don't mind the rain but travelling to and from work in the dark is getting really old, and I'm totally over wearing so many clothes every day.

How has your week been? Have wonderful things been happening to you or are there things you need to work on? I'd love to hear ...

There was a n op shop I didn't go in to but I can't remember where or what it was called. We were heading from Raffertys Resort towards the Hunter Valley and going through one of the shoppign centres there was an op shop on the right hand side claiming to be World's Greatest Op Shop. We broke down not far after that (near a big McDonalds or Hungry Jacks) and I didn't notice the oppy until I was driving home after sitting in the car by myself for about 6 hours reading trashy magazines. Sorry I'm not much help
