A week of fitting work in around the kids
scarily high bills
but also cooking
cold weather = candles and cosy fire
a day at the zoo
lots of knitting (yes I managed to finish the second sock, just need to graft the toe stitches which I'll do this afternoon - I can't believe they're finally off the needles!)
and meeting old friends (I. and her greatgrandmother, who's 90 and whom she hadn't seen for almost 2 years)
Off to Holland this evening. Fingers crossed by the end of the week my mum will start to feel a bit better...
