Knitting - WIP

I have been knitting lots of small projects lately and because they are gifts I have not been able to post pictures. Now I've discovered that I forgot to take photos of two of them! (Christmas tea cozies) silly me.

I have been knitting a hat for Em, she adores sheep. So when I found a Sheepies hat here I decided I had to make it for her. I have also discovered that there is a pattern for matching mittens

Today we are travelling down to Dorset for Christmas with my parents.

I/we wish you all a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year

from Jane, Tony Al & Em

Chocolate Log, Mulled Wine & Carols and yet another cold!

This week Em iced a chocolate log in Food Tech lesson (cookery to the rest of us)

It was delicious, and there's not a scrap left.
I also managed to take a photo of the Christmas tree at my favourite time of the day.
Only five more days to go 'til we finish for the holidays, yipeee! I've caught yet another cold!!! I'm sure you can guess how fed up I am at catching it again (5th time this term), though almost everyone at school has also got it.
Last Monday was the school carol concert which is held each year to raise money for the St Patrick's night shelter in Brighton. So I went along to join in and then my friend Sally and I served mulled wine and mince pies to the parents and villagers who attended. I couldn't drink any wine because I was driving but it smelt wonderful, I had a soft drink with a mince pie it wasn't the same though.
Christmas gift shopping and card writing is all finished and the cards have been posted. I'm as ready as I'll ever be.

Preparations for the season

We have been decorating the house for Christmas.
My favourite time is in the evening when we turn out the lights and just have the tree lights on. Magical ....

This is my favourite photo of Tony Al & Em taken last Christmas at a Garden Centre close to my parents home in Dorset.

Introducing .......

My new car, it is a Renault Megane 1.4 extreme and this is the photo of it in the local garage showroom. We collected it this morning at 10am and went for a drive, oooh its lovely.
Knitting progress is on Christmas tea cosies but I won't post pictures just yet as that would spoil the surprise.
