More Haste

Fantastic Menagerie Tarot

Fuelled by morning drugs in the form of Prozac, coffee and sugar (delivered via jam tarts for breakfast. Yes, I know, I am a dismal role model for my kids) I thought I'd quickly whizz in here to say OMG OMG OMG I can't believe I forgot to post on FO Friday last week - even though both kids were home because of Teaching Training Days at school, and I actually did some housework too, I just can't believe I forgot I had a squillion zillion finished projects to talk about. Well, OK, really it was three, but you get the point.

And now it is like 3 weeks til Xmas and I have nothing done. But I do not panic (that's why only one 'omg', in lower case this time). Not yet, anyway. If I knit solidly from now til ... oooooh ....maybe December 24th, I will get it all done in time. And DH's birthday is this Friday, and when I checked my inspiration box ? It was empty, totally naked, I tell you. Not even a bad crumb of an idea leftover from a previous year.

And to top it off, the lovely builder man is coming tomorrow to fix some stuff (exactly what, I can't remember) and so that means I must do some more tidying up before he gets here. I know you are loving the irony of that, right ?

On the plus side, at the Parents' Evenings recently, Destructo Boy's teacher said that he has potential, he just needs to be more consistent in his efforts ie. he is lazy and has a short span of attention for things he doesn't want to do; and Mini Diva's teacher pretty much said she was perfect. Santa may yet make it to this house.


  1. Yes, you'll be FINE!!!! But I WILL be telling you to bugger off from facebook when I see you there, now thatI know you have a TON of stuff to do *stern teacher's face*

  2. Christmas knitting is like Christmas shopping. It should all be done on Christmas Eve. I don't even cast on 'til 10pm 12/24. That's why nobody ever gets a present til Easter or beyond. PS: I see things haven't changed in the centuries since I was in grad school - teachers still like girls better. Bah, Humbug! Thanks for the compliment and the suggestion.

  3. oops - that should read grade school. Maybe I needed to apply myself more?


Thanks ! I love comments :-)
