I'm Back!

Well as Mum reported I've been off the air for a while now due to the joys of Technology and 'The Blue Screen of Death' that killed our computer for a while.
As you might guess I am now back on-line and have upgraded to the new Blogger whilst I reinstall my settings etc. Don't you just hate computers with all the stupid things they do? I have lost all my favorites, my e-mail contacts, some photos (thankfully most had been backed up but my knitting FO photos are history, may they rest in peace) and 95% of my knitting file - patterns and reference points I wanted to keep. My e-mail is now playing up and I am sorely wondering why we spend so much time associated with such annoying things as computers.

But then I found Kiddley. Now Emily isn't quite old enough yet for any hands on craft sessions but this site is great for ideas that are really getting me even more excited about the thought of them than I already was!

As for everyone I've had a busy few weeks leading up to Christmas and was defeated by my Christmas knitting despite starting them so early. And there aren't any photos of them as they were no sooner finished than wrapped! There are other FO's to look forward to, well one at least but I will leave that for later as the dishes need doing and since the dishwasher died about the same time as the computer (not a good month at all!) I can't just leave them to the last minute, just the last 5 minutes or so in this case seeing as it's quite late. Anyway enough waffling for now. There will be more later as usual but I'll leave that for another day!

I've never heard of that site before. Thanks - I've saved it to my favourites and will definitely use it.

Happy New Year!

Glad you made it back. What a pity about all your photos.
