Travel report

Hi everyone, I'm back from my vacation in the UK... In case you are interested in what I did and how the HSKS Europe meeting was, have a look at my muggle blog, I've started to post a travel report there. I'll add a new bit every day

Sign of life

Just wanted to let you all know that I'm still alive... I'm having a great time at London so far and will board a coach tonight to go to Edinburgh. I'm really excited to meet some of you there but I still have another 8 hours to go.

When I'm finally back home next Thursday, I'll post a few pics to show you what I've been up to during my vacation.

As for knitting, I've been making lots of tiny preemie hats for SPEW which I will hand to Emma Wigworthy on our meeting.

And I found some beautiful beads to make stitchmarkers for my spoilee.

See you all soon

where am I today?

As I told you last week, I'm really busy at the moment.

Last Tuesday I had a 5 hour train ride to visit my parents as my dad had his 60th birthday. The party was Wednesday, Thursday was needed to clean up all the mess and today I packed my suitcase again.

But I'm not heading back home, I'll fly to London tomorrow. There I'll spend 5 days all on my own, as my son is staying with my parents. After those 5 days, I'll travel to Edinburgh to meet a few fellow Hogwarts students over the weekend, then back to London, another night at the hotel there and by Tuesday, March 24 I'll fly back to my parents place.

One day later, I'll finally head back home with my son in tow and everything will be back to normal again.

I'll do my best to post next week, but I don't know if I'll have internet access as I don't own a laptop computer and my cell phone is too old to be used for browsing the web.

Don't have too much fun without me and cross your fingers as I don't want too much rain for my vacation.

another week is gone

And once again another week is gone...

I thought I'd share some pics with you of my latest crochet project - a beautiful shawl made with super soft microfiber yarn:

And of course I'm still working on my kit, I'm almost done with it - right now I'm about to crochet a cute little something that will go into the package as well.

I'm so excited, I'll leave to visit my parents by Tuesday, then fly to London next Saturday and meet with other students the Friday after that in Edinburgh... so I most likely will be rather quiet during the next two weeks, but I hope to be able to report about my vacation in between.
