Apologies - it's been quite a while...

Good Lord, I didn't realise it had been so long since my last post. Time has absolutely flown recently - between the illnesses (me and junior - god damn those nurseries), the family disaster, Christmas shopping (I'm done. Praise be) and attempting to see my family before we head state-side, it's just too much. There simply are not enough hours in the day.

The good news is that the advent calendar (yes, I know we're a week in - but quite frankly, he's eight months old and won't know the difference) and his stocking are almost done. The bad news is that I have another three sacks and another stocking still to start. I may have to leave these until next year - and start in about July. I absolutely love sewing and the general whole idea of 'make do and mend' but it's bloody time consuming. (As an aside, I've just found Topshop's Inside-Out blog - definitely worth a read if you've got time.)

It's our office Christmas party (sorry, 'drinks' - the credit crunch has well and truly bitten) on Thursday. I have mixed feelings about this. After the last office social (where I got very drunk to celebrate the fact I was out sans enfant), I need to make sure I maintain some level of dignity this time. But it is Christmas, so I fear the dancing shoes will be making an appearance whether I want them to or not... Either way, it's the attire that is always difficult for me. Tinsel in the hair is a definite no. So are flashing badges (or flashing earrings - in fact anything flashing should be avoided full stop), or any Christmassy headgear. You have to make an effort, but you don't want it to look too much like hard work. Will keep you posted on the final decision...
