Back to work tomorrow!

Well it is back to work tomorrow and even though its only for one week before I take a fortnight's leave I'm not looking forward to it!! especially when the rest of the family are still on holidays. To ease the pain I have made a list of jobs for them to attempt should they have any spare moments!!! I'm cross with myself because since getting home Friday night I have done absolutely nothing!!!! The house is a disorganised cluttered mess but I am determined that tomorrow is the start of a new week and time to bring some order into my life. My main resolution for this year is to complete my 'house detox', easier said than done, the cluttering gene has been handed down for generations. The 'horsey one' has promised to clean her room this week so that is promising.


Still no further on the quilts, had hoped to start cutting one of them today but not looking promising now. Think it will be more knitting while I watch one of my favorite shows 'America's next top model'!! Had a few comments wondering how I knitted in the car, not sure, think it is only because it is a plain scarf that I managed. I do get car sick normally and definitely cannot read but small amounts of knitting the other day were okay.

This is the stitchery that I made for my SSCS partner Becky - "Whosies". It is called 'Santa's Workshop' and had ceramic buttons on it. I found there was a lot more work in it than I realised and I was really fighting the time to finish it . I was really pleased with how it turned out though.

Thanks today for Lindt chocolate reindeers reduced in the post christmas sales and prayers for my Aunty Judy as she supports Jan in her battle. She has always been my 'fairy godmother' and the love and caring she is giving Jan is just amazing.

I could not possibly knit in the car - no matter how much I envy those of you that do! - I can't even turn my head in the car without feeling woosy. I'm with you on the detox the house 2009! I too have inherited the clutter gene and this is definitely the year to refresh! Good luck!

I stitch in the car (not while driving of course...lol...)and the only way I can do that is by wearing motion sickness bands on my wrists. I find these amazing! They really work and I can read while wearing them also. Theya re around $20 at the pharmacy.
I have both of your Aunts in my prayers.
I am also back to work today....
Take care
