On the eleventh day before Christmas,

I took my kitchen cupboards down. On the tenth day before Christmas, I stripped the wallpaper (repeat ad infinitum, installing gas cookers, electricity, emulsion paint, doors, toilets and all else. Keep the element of panic strong, and ad lib as necessary.)

Life is obsessed by building work. I am sitting on the floor propped against the piano, because we recycled the sofa to give us more room to decorate in early. That should tell you everything that you could possibly need to know.
The good news, if you can call it that, is that I am finally out of my knitting slump and knitting again. Yes, I have my needles in my hand and half a cardigan on them and maybe, just maybe, life is going to be OK. Cross fingers?

Five more builder days till Xmas. We can do this.

Hi Helen
You are one of my pay it forward recipients but I don't have your address. Can you send it over to me along with your shoe size and yarn colour preference?
