Right - just for a change the house is a tip and I've a load of paperwork to do. and I go away with mum on sunday and that's the last day of January.......

So, before I leave for knit night tonight around 5.15, I'm aiming to deal with 250 things (most of which will be very little things - there are about 100 tiny balls of wool all over the floor as a starting point)

watch this space!
