The blog has been relatively quiet for a reason. December is a big month for me, not only do I have Christmas to contend with I also have my birthday – a mere week before Christmas itself.
I’m exceedingly lucky in the sense that these days are kept separate and I get proper celebrations for each one.
This year was no exception (bar some minor irritations but we’ll gloss over them) and I had a wonderful birthday. I got some lovely gifts – although due to timing I didn’t get to open them until 9pm. I did get an exceedingly nice lunch out, cocktails and dinner so I was kept busy during the day.
The biggest gift though….
An Ashford Kiwi 2 spinning wheel from J. The level of conspiracy needed to acquire this though seems to have been somewhat excessive; given my extraordinary (and extremely irritating) ability of being in the wrong place at the wrong time. Like say when emails and text messages come in between the co-conspirators… or actually working in the shop when it is delivered. That kind of thing.
It was still a surprise though…. I thought the big box was Lego….
