Foxy obviously did not get the memo about naps being over.

What you can't tell from the photo is just how far up in the air his butt is. Nice view, son.

Mother, your wish is my command!

Well. Here I am, blogging on my new iPad. Folks, this is going to be good. I am rationalising my extensive non-work activities, and have decided that the blog is here to stay, the podcast is going to fade out, and I think I must stop the twittering. It's not so much that I twitter lots myself, but I do read the mundane details of peoples lives who I don't even know. I need to cut myself off!

I am in that blogging place where I have so much to catch up on that it is daunting. So it won't happen, I'm going to have to just jump back in, with a promise to self to blog little and often.

Ok, let's throw in a couple pics, coz that's what you're here for, right?

I know, you were hoping for Foxy pics, but I want to show you some knitting. I have finished some stuff this year, honest. These slippers are for my MIL, they did not come out perfectly, see the weird crease at the back of the heel? But she is an exceptionally nice person who will not mind, and will probably even wear them when I come over.

I made these beauties for myself. Noro, I love the way you look, knitting with you, not so much.

And isn't this just a cozy piece of delicious? A very successful, if rather boring knit.

Of course, my needles are full again, happiness. But I still have not got my spinning wheel working properly, and that is my task for today. If I can ever put this iPad down. Oh boy, it is heavenly!

A Day According to Plan

I love it when my best laid plans actually work. Foxy now has a swimming lesson at 1:30 on Tuesdays. This is tricky coz it's smack in the middle of normal nap time. Today, all the stars (actually clouds) lined up. First, due to adding another blackout layer, Foxy slept past 8. This meant it was possible to keep him up pre lesson. We also managed to do what we do best:

Then we swam, and I remembered to bring a foxy snack to keep the boy busy while I got myself dressed:

And here's the best part. After all of five minutes Foxy fell asleep, so we are now sitting cozied up in the library:

Don't hate me coz my lace knitting is beautiful. Now, what to listen to on my iPod. Decisions decisions.
