Does anyone feel a bit exhausted? I have read some of the trying to get excited for Christmas themes, and feel a little aflame ( off to meet the offspring en masse on Saturday), Might make some mince pies, but not got the festive bug. Furiously knitting a " Brighton Scarf" for one Boyfriend in law, incorporating his flag and the pavilion and a few fish ( it's tantric) and off my severe knitting skill library, but I still feel flat. Got the expensive phoney think for one off spring, another wants money and the Russian and my son are just in a state of relief to be honest after all the legal work I've done. There is a time in life to say, children of mine, just come and plant my privett, and you may be fed.
