2008 Knits

Making this mosaic, I surprised myself with how much knitting I've actually completed this year. And I know this isn't everything. I made some Christmas gifts that I didn't photograph.

Happy New Year everyone.

I don't usually do this,

But I really want to set some goals for myself for 2009.

  1. Lose 40 lbs. Seriously, since I had Matthew 3 1/2 years ago, I've put on a lot of weight which I really am fed up with carrying round. I'll break this down into a pretty achievable 1lb per week. I just stood on the scale and am weighing in at 173lbs.

  2. Get my lazy ass to the gym for a one-hour session at least once every week. I remember the days of 5 times a week, but I do want these goals to be realistic.

  3. Drink less than 14 units of alcohol per week. That's the 'safe' number (apparently). This might be my toughest challenge, but I really need to address how much I drink.

  4. Have this house sold and be living in the cold by next fall.

  5. Knit everyone in my family matching hat, scarf and mittens for no.4 :0) I don't mean we'll all match each other, just that each person's set will be matched ;0)

  6. Switch off my computer when I'm not using it. Or at least every night.

  7. Get a proper job, after achieving no.4

  8. Knit 12 Hats for alex- a very achievable 1 per month.

  9. Read 20 books. That's my 12 bookclub books, plus a few. I sometimes don't like the bookclub selections and miss making my own choices. I really need to make more time to read.

  10. Procrastinate less. This clearly also needs a lot of work - I started this post yesterday and it's taken me til late afternoon to put it up on the blog!

Happy New Year :0)

Where dreams come true.

We just got back from our first family trip to DisneyWorld. Four years in Florida and you'd think we'd have made it before now. But we wanted to wait til both our boys could enjoy it.

I'm glad we did wait - they both LOVED it. As did Mom, Dad, Nanny and Pepe.Our first stop was Disney's Hollywood Studios to meet the guys favourite characters. Kachow!
Here are my little mouskateers in Pooh's playground.

Talking of Pooh! Here they are on the ride home this afternoon......pooped!

What a FABULOUS vacation. We are all in love with Disney and planning on returning soon. We only made it to two parks and there's SO much more.

Yes, we have some knitting content.....

Hats for Alex. This is my 2008 contribution, knit throught the year. Just over 1 a month. Not very exciting, so I livened it up with a pool shot, to warm all you Northerners up :0) If you've got a stash of them, send them in ASAP to count towards Trillian's 2008 total. And how could I NOT post a(nother) Christmas shot of my boys. Here they are on Christmas morning - Matt has his Knuffle Bunny (thanks Nan & Bob) and is wearing his new Lightning McQueen sunglasses (thanks to Santa for filling his stocking).
And you see the big red thing behind Teddy? That Matt's 'new' bike. Teddy got a real new bike (it's on the other side of the tree, out of shot), but all day they were saying how Matt's 'new' bike looked EXACTLY like Teddy's OLD bike. You've gotta love the innocence of the small people.
