With my new found love of knitting I couldn’t resist these pattern booklets on eBay recently, especially as I remember them from my childhood
My mum knitted many of the clothes for my Sindy dolls and my brothers Action Man so I look forward to seeing how I get on with them!

No not this one
I’m aware we’ve all been having some problems accessing/waiting for blogs to load, leaving comments etc and I thought I’d pass on this lovely bloggers advice
It seems blogger problems are with internet explorer and using Firefox should solve them
I’ve spent the past couple of weeks visiting all your blogs via firefox and haven’t experienced any more issues so I definitely recommend you give it a try!

I have a lot of catching up to do today having spent the past few days in bed doing a lot of this
Thankfully it wasn’t severe enough to be the dreaded swine flu but it knocked me for six all the same – us bloggers can always tell how ill we are by the fact we haven’t even switched on the laptop!
My family have also had some more bad news, my dads aunt suffered a stroke on Wednesday evening and died yesterday afternoon. A tragedy at any time but seems more so, so soon after loosing my Nan. Once again my family are all joining together to make necessary arrangements, it does make me thankful that we are such a close family
If I do say so myself we both looked fantastic!
Unfortunately the lady who worked on me wasn’t very clear with her instructions so I’m a bit concerned about recreating the look so I think I will go back to a local branch and see if I can get some more guidance
I have an awful lot of blogs to catch up with, a room that needs a good airing to banish any germs and phone calls to help my parents with so I best get going!!

I didn’t watch Pushing Daisies when it was on tv but a few friends recommended I should so I have borrowed it from the library to watch over the weekend
I’m not completely sold on the storylines so far but visually I’m loving it!
Especially Olive Snook’s apartment!
Isn’t it fabulous!
What are you watching this weekend?

I took a spare copy of Martha Stewart Living to work yesterday for a like minded colleague and we started chatting about knitting and my lesson last Saturday, even discussing setting up a knitting group!)
Today she surprised me with this wonderful knitted cupcake as a thank you
How kind and what a talented lady!
Hopefully this will inspire me to make something similar in the future
