Phat Lewt!

[trans. Geek] I got good stuff for Christmas!

I am SO lucky...

My Christmas haul this year is truly worth grinning about.
  • That Jordana Paige knitting bag in grape. (photos later)
  • A new digital camera for blogging.. (still no photos, not on broadband at the new place yet)
  • a beautiful pearl, white gold and rubber bracelet and earrings. Very nice. (etc)
  • the Jasper Fforde, The Fourth Bear
  • the Neil Gaiman, Fragile Things.

I've started reading the last one, which just shows me just how truly brilliant Neil Gaiman is.

It's a book of short stories, and the first one alone left me shaking my head in awe at his writing. It's a H.P. Lovecraftian tale in the style of Sherlock Holmes. Just wonderful.

Anyway, the sporadic photo-less posts will probably continue for another fortnight, the whole holiday season is a mess as far as getting net access put on, sadly. So much for geeking my way through my holidays :(

oh, and ..

Merry Christmas all.

Busyness and so lack of posting.

Okay, no photos because near finishing a Christmas present and she reads the blog :P

Also, not much posting for a few weeks probably because we're moving house!

Moving to interim accomodation with our own space while our new house gets built. :)

It's just a tiny two bed apartment, which my man says is about the same size as the living area in our new-being-built-house [grin] but it will suit us. He also says ity's ugly and I'll hate it, but I'm treating it like an interim return to uni-studentness and the location wins out.

We're not sure what will be happening with net access for a bit, so I might be on borrowed PCs etc for blogging. All will sort itself out one way or another, the universe kind being of that type.

Oh, and there's a local holiday coming up that will take some of my time. ;-)

Headless errr... rather Faceless Santa/Father Christmas

Here he is. Rather turning out well, with interesting construction - he's done toe up !

His beard is underway then he just needs a hat and embroidered face. Then off to small person's room as huggable decoration.

He's quite big really, and murder on my bamboo dpns - several of the four are now splintered and unsuable. Onto the Christmas wish list we now have new sock needles...
