I'm back. Did you miss me?

Well, I'm back from my break. We arrived home from two weeks in New Zealand this morning. We got up at 3.30am Christchurch time and have done the flying and arriving home things today - the checkin, the big wait for the flight, the flight itself, collecting baggage, getting home, doing several loads of washing, mowing the lawn, downloading and watching David Tennant's last two episodes of Doctor Who, all those things you just have to do when you travel!

So I'm a bit tired, and this will only be a short post. I will try and get some stories and photos up over the next week or so.

My arm is doing well - it got a good rest over the last few weeks and I only had a couple of days where I got some mild numbness. My sore wrist is also back to normal but I will need to be conscious of it when I go back to work on Monday (*fingers in ears, la, la, la, la* - trying not to think about going back to work!)

I didn't get as much knitting done as I expected on the trip, because although I was a passenger and not a driver (it was a manual car, and I can only drive automatics, plus I don't think I can drive a rental car on my provisional licence), for the first 3/4 of the trip, the roads were very windy so I had to pay close attention to the roads to avoid motion sickness.

Still, I got the body of Margot finished, with a few bits ripped out and redone - I ended up making the body 3 inches longer than the pattern calls for, and I'm really happy with it now. I've just started one of the sleeves.

So I'm off to get dinner and probably an early night. See you tomorrow!


  1. Happy New Year!! Looking forward to reading about your trip!

  2. I hope you loved NZ and that it was good to you! I'm also looking forward to hearing about the trip and seeing pix, crazy cause I live here but ya know!
