Happy New Year everyone

We had a quiet New Years Eve.
We went to the Cinema, we had to pick a family film suitable for our 6 year old so saw "Nativity". It is a British film with lots of English comedy actors in it - Martin Freeman from The Office, the original "The Office " with Ricky Gervais, Ashley Jensen from "Extras", Pam Ferris, Alan Carr, Ricky Tomlinson, Marc Wootton. Good film, we all enjoyed it.

And the moon was wonderful last night -

Then we went to a local Pizza Resturant. We whiled away the time waiting for our food playing "Bananagrams". It's like scrabble in as much as you have letter tiles and you have to construct a crossword but you make individual ones, you are playing all the time and not waiting for other people to have their go. We love it and have played it quite a bit over Christmas.
Came home, put the little one to bed then tried finding something we wanted to watch on the TV. Ended up watching the first Lord of the Rings film - had to pause it a few times to check the time, managed to see Big Ben do the chimes, then carried on with the film. Ohh Viggo, I can't wait to see part 2 tonight!

Anyway I had 3 hours, in which I managed to hand stitch the binding on my Mini-quilt. So here it is, I will just give it an iron, then it will be packed up and sent, hopefully, on Monday.

It's not as perfect as I hoped for, but I am pleased with it. Against the light the seam allowances make a pretty pattern!

Now I need to go and supervise an 11 year olds room tidying. It gets so messy he can't really get to grips with it. So I help a bit. Probably a bad idea, but I feel I need to!

Plan to go swimming today, then tomorrow a friend is coming over and we are going for a walk. We are fortunate to live in a rather picturesque rural area, and the fields and canals beckon.

I'll see if I can get a new blog title picture up today - the latest has been up since December 1st.
