- as you can see, Ella thinks I have a wheel just for her to play with lol

is it really that long?

I can't believe its been so long since my last post, dunno what happened really -the window of time I hoped for when Amy went to nursery hasn't materialised because Ella decided that 71/2 months was a good time to start standing up, and 9 months was reasonable for walking, so instead of a just cruising baby, I now have someone who can climb stairs, and get from one place to another in the blink of an eye. I've been burning the midnight oil with the spinning so no time to do any digital stuff, and now I'm knee deep in chrissie presents that need finishing. I really wish i could get things done in the daytime, but nigel is an expert at derailing any plans I have, so much so that I don't tell him what my to do list is, because I can guarantee that he'll find a million and one things that must be done by both of us instead - I'm even dependent on him for transport :(. Enough moaning anyhoo.
I was totally cheered up by taking my spins to Heath yesterday, he's got the most stupendous christmas decs up in the shop -strings and strings of huge pompoms! there's even one as big as my head lol! A good reaction to my new stuff as well, plus some more sales so it's all good! I've got a few things to put on etsy soon, along with a project or two using my own and others recycled/repurposed bits and bobs - ooh and i'm on ravelry too!
