People & planning

Have you thought ahead to next year? Do you use a planner, a diary or a calendar?
I started using a planner/diary this year for all things me and then I use a calendar (in the kitchen) for all things family.
I've been searching the internet trying to find the perfect planner to use in 2015 - I have a preference for spiral bound as I like the planner to lay flat. Do you have a preference, do you have any suggestions for me?

18 years & a blanket

Would you believe that this year, my hubby & I celebrate 18yrs together!
Well, actually we didn't.
You see, apparently (according to him), it's no big deal.
Hmph, it didn't stop him from accepting his present though did it! 
What did I get?
Nothing.
 I waited patiently all day, in case he bought something home from work but nope, nothing. So the very next day, I jumped online & purchased some yarn for blanket that I've been wanting to make - a present to myself.

Fairy vomit

This yarn looks so sweet & innocent doesn't it....not.
I really hate this yarn.
I regret signing up to receive it & regret trying to crochet something with it.

Recipe: Easy Sausage rolls (with veg)

I make these sausage rolls all the time, they are easy to make - reading this recipe is actually harder than making them!  They are also egg free & dairy free, I originally started making them for a friend who has a son with allergies, discovered that I totally loved eating them & then added them to my 'regular' make & eat menu.

Getting ready for that day in December

As time ticks by closer to Christmas, I suddenly to decide to jump in and start knitting (yet) another project, justifying it by saying that is a) using up yarn from stash & b) it'll be a present for someone.
So now that I have faffed around with my new project & convinced you, yet again, that I am possibly mad...  let's talk Christmas presents!

Taa daa...

This is a very belated ..taa daa.  As I was trying to delete excess photos from my camera, I found piccies of this hat that I made about two years ago.  Little did I know then that I'd have another baby nor that the baby would be a girl!
