You may find this hard to believe but we have been in Canada now for a whole year. Hasn't time flown by so quickly? Then again, when I think about everything we've done and achieved since arriving it doesn't surprise me so much but I really should be documenting it more. As well as selling our home in London, we have moved three times but I have to say I am happiest just where we are right now. We have a lovely house, not large but just right and it's close to school, within a friendly community. That can't be bad. We also have the most lovely neighbours. My goodness, they have been so warm and kind since we arrived in July, I have been bowled over by the gifts and sweetness that have been brought to our door.
For Christmas I so want to give something back, something special that has been chosen with careful thought. So after several episodes of curtain twitching (hopefully unnoticed) I chose a thyme green skein of Madelinetosh Merino Light and Song of the Sea for one particularly fantastic lady. This turned out to be such a beautiful knit, by the way. Rhythmic and peaceful, just like the waves not so far from our home. Details and more thoughts are over here on Ravelry.
Are you making any Christmas gifts? To be honest I thought I was doing quite well but suddenly realised time is not on my side any more. Back to those needles ..
