finally back

I'm finally back online again and able to post as much as I want - okay, not really because I still have other things to do but at least I don't miss out on all the fun here...

As the weather is really bad here, I won't go trick-or-treating with my son for halloween, it's raining like mad and Halloween for the kids would have been today. It's not celebrated that much in Germany but they always make a party for the kids OUTSIDE and the kids can go trick-or-treating in the shops around the market place. But as it's raining all the time and we all just recovered from the flu, I think it's better to stay at home.

As it is our anniversary tomorrow, I'll go to a party with my partner and most likely dress up, perhaps I'll post a pic if you're interested.

Now I have to do some cleaning at home, didn't master the spell for self-folding laundry yet and my dishes always break when I try to magically clean them - so no way around at doing it the muggle way. I really have to practice those spells

still no internet access at home

I still have no internet access at home, but I hope to be back online by this weekend. Wish me luck, I really hate to be cut off of all my internet friends and of this swap.

But at least I got plenty of knitting time due to the lack of internet and got some projects finished, some of them even paid ones. I'll post some pics as soon as possible, for now I'm impatiently waiting to be back online.

I really hope that the weather will be better by next week as I have plans for Halloween - it's not celebrated that much here in Germany but there will be some parties or I might even get a chance ot go to a club with my partner. And if the weather is fine, I'll dress up with my son and go trick or treating, I'm sure he'll love it.

I hate muggle technology

I'm still not able to go online from home, but I'll try to have a look at what's going on here and will participate in the next round of Quidditch. If you need to contact me, leave me a comment here or contact me at Ravelry, I'll have a look at this blog and Ravelry regularly but my email will not be checked that much.

And of course I'm planning the kit for my pal Emma Wigworthy, I'm sure she will like it...

By the way, does anyone know of a spell to make my ISP work faster in getting me back online? I really hate to depend on others to go online.

not online for a while

I'm really sorry, but I will not be able to be online for a while as I have some problems with my ISP. Hopefully everything will work fine soon, but as for now I can't go online and will not be able to participate in any of the activities of this swap.
