Things I'm doing (or not doing!)

It's just turned winter here so you'd think I'd be snuggled up inside with a hot cup of tea and some crafts....well, no! 
Instead, we have all be sick with colds for two weeks and we are tired, listless and so over it. Hopefully, we are on the tail-end of it now and can start to resume our usual activities.  I find it frustrating sitting on the couch at night too sick to knit or crochet, it's so boring just watching tv with still hands!

So I thought I'd list the things that I may or may not be doing...
~ this crochet blanket, it's close to being done but I have 'finishitis' -- you know when you are so close to finishing something and then it gets boring!
~ I just ordered this nifty little stand to hold my smart phone (I have an android, what do you have?) ... I will now be able to take better family photos!
~ I'm trying to find something different to cook for dinner, I seem to be rotating the same 4 recipes every week!  Savory mince, Spaghetti Bolognese, Chicken & noodles and Baked Sausages with vegies, not forgetting leftovers!
~ Have you heard of a Yarnit?  Well, they are nifty yarn holders for knitting & crocheting and they have just released a bigger version via Kickstarter. I really want one but by the time I add postage in to the cost then convert it to Aussie dollars, I think it's a bit out of my price range unless of course you think it's the bees-knees and maybe I should really get one?
~ I'm trying to not look at any sale alerts that keep popping into my emails, I'm trying to hold-off buying anything until I have finished a couple of things that are sitting on my kitchen table!
~ Speaking of kitchen tables, that is where I sew, so we haven't actually eaten dinner there for about 5 months!  I wish I had one of those super pretty sewing rooms but I don't. Even if I did have my own studio, I like sitting at the table with my kids and chat to them whilst they play/draw etc.
~ Did you see my earlier blog post about my new fancy basket, I'm super proud of it and have ideas for lots more!

So, tell me, what are you doing craft wise or food wise or reading wise or avoiding wise?
And ummm... did you catch my earlier post with my very first pattern review... was I too harsh?!
