Tagged again :D

Jax has tagged me again for a Christmas meme, and seeing as I haven’t taken any photos of the cobweb lace shawl in progress or the new knitting Namaste bag that arrived the other day, and I still have to collect the yarn swift from the post office, I’m posting the answers now before I forget ๐Ÿ˜‰
Name 3 things –
that you had hanging on your tree:
Some wired ribbon, clear lights and some cut-glass red baubles, all of them either hand me downs or cheap from Wilkos – even the tree (a fake one) is a hand me down. We only had enough room for one when we moved into this house, so we’ve only had the tree up for a couple of years, and I had so missed having one that I’ve really enjoyed putting them up ๐Ÿ˜€
that youโ€™ve eaten/drunk lots of:
I too have had large quantities of Lemsip and pretend Lemsips, but luckily I also ate copious amounts of Green and Blacks and drank large quantities of beers ๐Ÿ™‚
that you didnโ€™t do this year but hope to do next year:
Decorate the bathroom (I bet it won’t happen this year either though),
replace the fire with a multifuel burner so we can save on gas bills and use all the newspapers we get for brickettes, and hopefully be a little more economical as well as environmentally helpful (there are no recycling schemes for our homes because of the way the road is, and we are too far from a recycling centre to cart everything we could take there on the bus – we don’t drive at all, so that kind of makes up for where our council can’t help us),
and save some money for retirement – I finish paying my student loans off in March, so I am debt free (apart from the mortgage obviously) in two months! That will mean I have ยฃ100 a month to be able to use for saving/pension schemes instead of paying off stupid student debts.
favourite presents this year:
Ipod Shuffle – it is tiny and was a total surprise ๐Ÿ˜€
The Namaste bag
Subscription to Craft magazine (electronic version)
that youโ€™re glad you didnโ€™t get for Christmas:
I’m kind of grateful for anything really, if people are kind enough to think of me, but I’m very very glad that there isn’t anything I need to worry about returning (apart from an organiser insert that was the wrong size, but that’s hardly much!)
Name 3 people to tag:
I won’t be tagging anyone else – I think I’ve answered this one late enough! But feel free to join in if you want to ๐Ÿ˜€
Coming soon:
pics of the bag :D, some random projects from the massive pile I have on the go (including a Print o the Wave wrap which I’m still unsure of the colour I’m working with for the wedding), and me playing with the swift (while winding yarn from Harrogate that will be used in an emergency for said colour issues with Print o the Wave). But I will say this now – cobweb weight isn’t nearly as hard as I thought it would be to work with, as long as the needles are right, you don’t break the first pair you picked out to use on a journey between work and home because you were carrying them in a Sainsburys plastic bag and kept accidentally stabbing your coat with one that refused to stay in the carrier, and you don’t cock up the first and second rows and end up frogging because someone you live with kept moving into the light and talking to you while you were at an important stage… ๐Ÿ˜‰ No, it is honestly quite easy to use ๐Ÿ˜€

  1. I got a subscription to Craft magazine too! However my boyfriend was unable to get an electronic version of it since he was ordering it from the UK – apparently I can ‘upgrade’ to get both the paper and electronic version. Have you already got details for your subscription? Not that I need anything else to do, but I am anxiously awaiting my first issue!
    And I’m so jealous you’ll be student loan debt free so soon! I’ve got YEARS to go on mine…
