Where Is My Mind?

That Pixies song has been playing on my mind (no pun intended) a lot lately.

I have been meaning to write to you all. Honestly I have. Except that I haven’t felt like writing to you at all. Confused? I am. Coming home for a holiday was brilliant. I knew I missed you all, I just didn’t realise exactly how much until I got back here. It has been ten weeks since I was in Australia and it feels like an eternity.

In that time I have:

  • Been sad
  • Drank a whole bottle of Bach rescue remedy.
  • Howled over the insensitivity of people who are related to you.
  • Thought about why I came here.
  • Mused over the amount of love and support a family can give you.
  • Wondered what the f@@@ is wrong with the British?
  • Seriously contemplated packing up and moving back to Sydney.
  • Been EXTREMELY busy at work.
  • Laughed at how brilliantly complex and endearing the British are.
Knit & completed the following items in 3 weeks;
  • Two pairs of socks
  • 3 baby beanies
  • 3 baby bibs
Started knitting;
  • February Ladies sweater
  • Scarf for my sister
Ignored knitting that is so close to completing;
  • Skully – Just the sleeves to go
  • Ink – I just need to sew it up
  • Rowan vest – Again only need to sew up
  • 1 pair of socks – sew in ends.
And finally, decided on my priorities for 2010. Knitting & otherwise!

Freck it has been busy. No wonder I feel like I have been back for months when it has actually only been 10 weeks!

The best thing about coming home is knowing how I am going to do it next time. And when next time will be (April/May 2011). I didn’t get to see everyone I would have liked to, but you were in my thoughts.

I will try and blog more often. And I will try and post comments on your blogs more often. I make no promises! But of course I will try!

ps my last post was about my trip to Belgium (mmmmm Belgium!). I don't think I ever mentioned the reason for the visit. My sister and I went here for this reason. And we will be going back to get the rest of her arm finished and a bit of work done myself. Stay tuned!

Nice new look for the blog lovey - love the header photo!

You've made 2 pairs of socks in 3 weeks! Plus those other things! You are a knitting machine!

Look forward to seeing you again in 2011 - that will be just in time for Teddy's first birthday!

Ooo Kristie and I saw the Pixies two weeks ago.

That's an awful lot of knitting.

I like your new banner.

I'm counting days till your next visit!

Did you still need the skully pattern?
