It's taken a while....

I just looked back at my post for walking 10,000 steps a day. I haven't been able to do it everyday but managed to slip it in 3 to 4 days a week. The warmer weather has also helped me in cutting back on my food portions.
Have so far dropped 2kgs (4.4lbs) and holding.
I'd like another 2kgs off and am looking at this year's Christmas eating sessions with much trepidation!

Just love this song at the moment!

It just rocks!

Fall Out Boy "The Take Over, The Breaks Over"
The presence of a bulldog helps too!

Baby Bear Sunhat is finished and Brea Bag went out for a test drive

I've finished my Baby Bean Sunhat and I'm deciding what to do do with the pattern ie
Should I try submitting the pattern to printed and online knitting mags?
I've heard that this process can take quite a while just to find out whether it's a yea or a nay.
Does anyone have any first hand experiences that they can offer?
If not, should I offer it online myself for free?

Brea Bag got her first test drive yesterday. I took out some essential items from my usual handbag and I must say the
2 x grid pockets I made holdiing up the sides are doing their job well. They're preventing Brea from flopping into a flat sack with items running aroung in the bottom of the bag. We just went to the Trinity Guildhall speech exams and back. I'll take Brea out shopping in the city one of these days!

An excellent read ..... Twilight

There's not much to post about these days. Just sneaking in my knitting when I can during the daily chores.
There's both DD and DS's end of year exams and activities to ferry them here and there too. I've been trying to get all our paperwork at home filed properly for easy reference and tax .....
and boy is that hard to do! Especially after a few years of neglect.
It's something that I need complete and undivided attention for a few days coz my memory is so bad....! I start piles according to categories I want filed then I forget that I've done one and start another!
On another note, I finished reading Pyramids by Terry Pratchett and started on Twilight by Stephenie Meyer upon DD's insistence.
To my surprise, I was totally engrossed in this YA romance-horror story.

A thoroughly enjoyable read that I could not put down coupled with a beautiful setting (Hoh Rain Forest, Forks, WA) and (I was advised by DS) progressive rock soundtrack by Muse and Linkin Park as recommended by the author, it's one of those books that leave you feeling sad that you've finished reading it.
I really like listening to Phoenix by the The Butterfly Effect while reading this. This song is so Edward!
I've yet to start the sequel, New Moon but am already re reading Twilight :)

I wish I could knit faster!

or at least keep interested long enough in one project before jumping to another!
