Oh my days, this sciatica is killing me today! I don't know whether the sub zero temperatures have had anything to do with it but my paracetamol and ibuprofen have NOT helped all day!
 I'm booked in for physiotherapy on December 14th but it can't come quick enough!

It's getting closer...

29 sleeps until Christmas!

Already?! Where has this year gone?!

Well, my cards are all written and ready for distribution. All presents (except Gavin's) are bought and ¾'s of them are wrapped.
Tesco's Christmas delivery slot is booked and Christmas lunch decided.  I think I'm going to be able to relax this December and enjoy the final countdown to Christmas without worrying what I have left to do this year...nice!

Seamless and symmetrical join

I came across this fab technique for a seamless join in a round crochet piece HERE; definitely going to try it!

Oswald Owl

Well I've finally finished a little project I've been working on. 
A few weeks ago I treated myself to a couple of crochet patterns on Etsy from Aterg Crochet. One of them being an owl cushion. Now I'm thinking it wasn't originally supposed to be as big as I've made mine but I LOVE it! I've even hand stitched ... yes, HAND STITCHED (and I have the bloody plaster to prove it) a removable inner cushion so I can wash the cover when necessary.  I hate cushions that don't have separate covers... really difficult to clean. 

Anyway, I would like to introduce you to...

Hidden treasure

George LOVES milk bottle caps. Jack LOVES rubber wrist bands. This is the stash Gavin and I found today after moving out the fridges, cooker and the living room furniture whilst cleaning. 
They didn't know what to do there were so many!!

Here's another great pics of the boys.  They were sat on our bedroom window sill in the warmth of the morning sun :)

Kitty pics and video

A few snap shots of George and Jack and a video Jack getting comfy on my blanket.  He was doing what he's doing for about 20 minutes before setting and was purring like crazy! Too cute xx
