I hope your all well and getting used to the nippy weather?! I swear I feel the cold more than I should at my age... Even though we have the heating on intermittently I'm having to layer up with cardigans and big fluffy socks, inside the house and my fingers are still freezing cold!
I love Autumn, even with the cold weather because everything feels much more cosy and I've got my birthday to look forward to next month. I also do get rather excited about Christmas and look forward to when we can put the tree up and make the house look all festive.
We did put the tree up a little early last year... it wasn't even officially December! We went to buy our tree just to be prepared (it's an artificial one) and then when we got home we just could resist and up it went..! I think we'll wait a little longer this year though... haha. I don't even know if it's stay standing now that we have Rose to contend with, she's got a habit at the moment of pulling things over. If it's not chairs, then it's the clothes airer or the ironing board. She's terrible! I've constantly got my heart in my mouth at the moment, she has so many toys to play with but she just seems to find normal every day objects much more appealing!
I've decided to bite the bullet and I'm Attempting to knit with Double pointed needles. I'm knitting a pair of hand-warmers, the picture on the pattern looks gorgeous and I just Had to have them. I'm a little worried though as the pattern also includes cable knitting, another thing that I've never tried before. Trust me to bite off more than I can chew! But I've sat down armed with a load of youtube tutorials to get me through whilst Rose is having a sleep upstairs. Wish me luck!
(The yarn is Debbie Bliss Cashmerino Aran in Pale pink and is sooo soft and squishy.)
I haven't been in blogland much over the last few day's as we had my Mum to stay. It was so so lovely to see her again, as she lives right down in Cornwall and it was really good for her to spend some good quality time with Rose. I think Rose will be missing all of the constant cuddles and attention she was getting whilst Mum was here..!
In the evenings she was crocheting her blanket and I managed to finish one Christmas present. Just a few more to go still though...
Edited to add: I just wanted to thank everyone who left me a comment on my last post. I was feeling quite down but every one of the lovely comments that you left helped to make me feel back to my normal self. I've been feeling much more positive this week and have had a friend round for lunch one day as well as my usual baby groups, so I feel like I'm making much more of an effort on the friends front. Just thought I'd let you all know that I'm feeling a lot happier now... xxx
