Yay the DVD player is finally fixed! It went in on the first week of the school holidays under its extended warranty and was finally done yesterday afternoon. The laser unit needed replacing and there were none in the country so we had to wait for the slow boat from Japan. Currently watching City of Ember with Ian, it's his first movie for a bit. He's been really good this week so I decided to let him watch, that and he's sneezing stringies (boo) atm so we can't go anywhere, have cancelled his horseriding this afternoon and may have to cancel the gym as well. Don't want movies over the weekend though as George has lost his Xbox, Movie and Computer privileges for the weekend.
I'll be getting some work done today, but probably not a heck of a lot else. Hoping to cast on for my Bug Off socks this afternoon if we do get to the gym though, really looking forward to them as it's my first colourwork item ever and I think I can manage continental knitting now. Here's the yarn for it
I'm also starting to reduce clutter a bit, selling some of the kids toys that don't get played with; any money from that will be saved towards giving Ian a new booster seat for the car. Will also be going through all my stuff in the sewing room and hopefully reducing that slightly. Have already donated a little fabric to school for their wearable arts program; looks like I'll be doing some sewing for that too, they need some balaclava type things for the kids.
Speaking of sewing I've finally finished the boys pj's and one set for me. Still 2 more to go for me and then I can do something a little more interesting; I want a long skirt with petticoats to keep warmth in, probably something from one of my period patterns I think. Here's Ian's pj's, he hasn't worn the other pair yet so I'll post a photo of them once he has.
