I have a lovely new computer with a huge 18.5" screen and Windows 7! It's not a laptop which is probably just as well as I really didn't think I would get on very well with one, but dad found this offer on PC World with £130 off so bought me a Norton Antivirus too. Ryan has set it up for me but needs to install the printer and help me work out the benefits of the Windows 7 later on.

I love it!

And I love my very wonderful dad!

I am afraid I will only be online for a short while everyday for a few days as I have no access to a computer other than Ryan’s - my hard drive decided to throw a wobbly and kick the bucket. My lovely dad, the most wonderful dad in the world, is getting me a laptop towards the end of the week but until then I have to be extra nice to Ryan so that he doesn’t mind me using his, which is now made up of bits of his original hard drive and mouse but my monitor, keyboard and speakers!

See-through Sunset

Garden pond Shawl

I recently test knitted this pattern for pmcblonde on Ravelry. It's a lovely free pattern!

Catch up!

Been a while, I know and I have already chastised myself for not posting!

Firstly, foot/ankle still swollen although I am on taking anti-biotics just in case it's infected. It does get rather painful at times and it can be difficult to walk but, after being told that i was carrying too much weight by a not very nice doctor, my favourite doctor has now taken over and I now she will do her best to get to the bottom of the problem.

Secondly, Amber is awaiting an MRI scan on her left knee - the consultant thinks the problem may be softening of the cartilage (or maybe it's just growing pains).

She and Emily (her best friend) are currently staying with Emily's grandad in Scotland, East Kilbride to be exact - she has been ice-skating, mostly on her bottom I think, and is having a day out in Edinburgh tomorrow.

Lastly, I have been dyeing again with varying degrees of success!
