Once again I am cursed again by the cold that only strikes at the weekend. My freeeeee time! But you've heard me go off on one about this once or twice before so suffice to say that I am pissed off.
Spent the weekend up north with Pooch's family. You know you're going to have a good weekend when there's something like this going on in the seat in front of you on the train.
Had a lovely time, head cold aside. I saw the blackpool illuminations for the first time. Photos from a car don't do it justice in any way at all but they give an idea.
Also met up with one of Pooch's old school mates in halifax which contained the promisingly named "Woolshops" shopping centre. Although as it turned out there was just the one market stall with mostly acrylic.
I had a lovely parcel arrive just before I left from knittingmama as part of the ravelry summer camp swap. There were some really cool things in there - not the least of which were the tortilla chips and dip which both survived the journey wonderfully!
Probably my favourite thing is this knitted headband. I have honestly hardly take in off since it arrived.
calorimetry in a whole new light for me as I'd assumed they wouldn't stay on my head. I can see my future containing some of these sometime soon. (And don't you just love those above the head shots which somehow disguise, at least in my mind, the rotundity of the overall face?
On that note diet starts again next week which I'm not looking forward to but which I do have some new motivation for. I found a picture last week of me in Jan 2003, just before my entrance into one of the finest loony bins private healthcare can buy. I was mega thin. Now I am mega not. Ah well. It all focuses the mind nicely...
