Half term

A week of fitting work in around the kids


scarily high bills



annoying bureaucracy


and cleaning

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...
