Bah! Humbug! Christmas is coming, now Dr Who has gone.

Did you watch it? Did you? Did you?

We were at a family party (a niece's 18th) and, God bless her, she never even blinked when half of her Aunts, Uncles and Grandparents all sat in a room for 1.25 hours (why is it easier to do digital than fractions?) and watched. That's me and all my blood relatives. It never usually happens. Never. Yet we sat altogether and had a wonderful blast of nostalgia, a binding experience as we watched a programme that we all loved and still love. Class.

I've watched it this morning, with my children who found the lure of a single mattress surfing down a staircase too much to ignore yesterday and I will watch it again soon with popcorn and Mr Angel Jem.

Work is going well, thank you, and Mr Angel Jem is getting through lots of work from home.  And by the time I sit still, to string a coherent sentence together impossible to seems be.

So, mindless, repetitive crafting has been the order of the day. A pick up and put down, just watch TV and monotonise movement craft. Yes, a blanket. I began this one back in September with a plan; to snuggle under it by Christmas Day to watch Downton. And I could, except..... it no longer belongs to me. 

As I wrote here, it has been claimed and stolen from me and most nights lives on the Princess' bed, except when it's video night and gets dragged down as the softest snuggliest to cuddle under.

 It's just the right size to fit two close friends, or one Mum and a Princess, so…
