Today I am anxious because Matt is going away for the weekend, with school, on a Science revision thingy in Wales so his bags are sitting on his bed ready for him to pack tonight. He has been on lots of residential trips including Germany earlier this year but it doesn't get any easier, I still worry about him. I don't think the fact that he returned from Germany with a sling on one arm and an x ray in the other actually helps much. On the other hand I am looking forward to a teenage tantrum and argument free weekend - way hay!
My cold is progressing nicely, I now have a dry nose as it all seems to have gone south to my chest - like I need anything else down there. I'm hoping that it will be all cleared up by next week so that I can go and see Mima again.
Matt's scarf is growing and I have an order in for another scarf from Kyle so I must be doing something right. Just not sure that they will be ready for Christmas the little bit that I have done has taken about 3 hours so far. As a result of this I am planning to enter the speed knitting championships early next year. And yes I do know that I dropped a stitch on the red bit but I couldn't find it again and anyway I've told Matt that it is part of the design and what he doesn't know won't hurt him so shhhhhhh. I think it's a valiant first attempt at knitting.
