Tired - but no longer stressed

Wow! Am I glad that's over! ;0) It actually went surprisingly well. 17 of the 24 children invited turned up, the bouncy castle was HUGE and kept them all amused and I actually made just the right amount of food - they ate plenty and we only had to bring just a little bit back with us. DS really enjoyed himself and that's the main thing, so all in all, it's been a good day.

However, I'm totally shattered now! I didn't finish the sock for DS until 1.30 a.m. (I must be mad!), I've been on my feet since 9 this morning cooking food, running round after the kids, etc. AND I'm feeling edgy because I've gone a *whole* day without doing any knitting! *LOL*

Plus, this morning the postie brought me a skein of Fyberspates bluefaced sock yarn, Elizabeth Zimmerman's Knitter's Almanac and Stephanie Pearl McPhee's Knitting Rules - and I haven't been able to drool over them all day! And now I'm home, I'm too tired to really take in what I'm reading. *rolls eyes*

Never mind, there's always tomorrow - as DH has just said, at least I can have a quiet day then. So I reeled off a list of the jobs I have to do that I've postponed from today - 3 loads of washing, hoovering, visiting dad, a trip to the pet shop for rat food and litter, not to mention all the visitors who have promised to come by with presents for DS, plus opening all the presents and cards DS had from his party today. Oh well, pass me another G&T ..... another couple and my list won't seem so bad ;0)

Glad the party went well. It certainly sounds like an exhausting day. Hope you enjoyed your day "relaxing" yesterday and your package of goodies!

Hiya Valerie! I've been enjoying my goodies today, reading Knitting Rules - it's really funny. :0)

I was a bit naughty yesterday and ordered some more Posh Yarn - and after I promised myself that I didn't need any more. *blushes*

I ordered 2 skeins of Eva 2ply laceweight in Fancy to do a shawl for DS's teacher for when he leaves her class at the end of July. She really appreciated a woolly winter lace scarf I knitted last year, so I know the hard work will be appreciated. And the colour is just right for her.

I also ordered 1 skein of Eva 8 ply in Dainty to do Fetching from Knitty.

Next week I won't order any more - honest! ;0)
