chop, chop...

Anyone remember that advert from the early 80s (might have been for British Telecom) that featured loads of paneguins and the following mantra repeated over and again:

chop chop busy busy work work bang bang, chop chop busy busy work work bang bang, chop chop busy busy work work bang bang...

Life's been feeling rather like that recently I'm afraid,and I don't suppose thta it would be of remote interest to anyone else, hence the lack of posts.

But things are looking up. There was a great KTog last Tuesday and on Sunday I went to Textiles in Focus, to take a turn on Liz's stall and to indulge in retail therapy with Gill (That naughty Silkwood sock yarn in Spangles told me that I needed it. Who was I to disagree?). And I've a day off today, most of which has been spent alternating between snoozing and knitting. And my lovely neighbour Rosie Jennings (reflexologist extraordinaire) celebrated her birthday yesterday, so we're off to our local for a celebration this evening.

Oh, and soon it will be SkipNorth: yay!

I _loved_ that advert - esp the penguin who suddenly jumped up saying "w'hey" and then carried on chop chop busy busy work work bang bang all reinvigorated.

I'd forgotten that bit! *Reinvigoration*, yep, that's me after a couple of fun days off: all reinvigorated, w'hey!

I remember that advert too! This week has been rather like that for me as it's half term for my youngest daughter Maisie.

Oh and wow! What a darling surprise package you sent me...I thank you properly but I just wanted you to know that it had arrived...you work fast, I've not finished getting my package together for my colourswap pal yet.

Photographs will be appearing on my blog later on today :^)

I would love to meet up with you sometime. What an excellent match! I was thinking about joining a knitting group too..
Just off to Cambridge now but not sure if we'll get past the Grafton Centre! Marianne x
