    I had already added that to my faves Spooky! I am PaolaF if you want to add me as a friend I am useless at doing linkys to sites The project I am doing is called Hitchhiker I will finish it tonight. DD1 and DD2 want me to knit them one each also. I got them to choose the yarn from a lady I found on Etsy who is fantastic. A friend showed me some of her Manos del Uruguay silk blend yarn The photos never seem to be able to do the yarn justice I have managed to find a great pattern on Ravelry for it
  9. I shall be relying on you to keep the winter snow-free then Paola! I will do my best

    Having just returned from Singapore, which is 30-33 degrees 365 days a year, I have not knitted for nearly 2 years. When I have knitted in the past it has not been hugely successful!! However upon my return a good friend has introduced me to www.ravelry.com and some stunning yarns. I am completely hooked I am about to finish my first project and is quite looking forward to cooler weather so that I can wear it Anybody else on here use Ravelry?
  11. Oh yeah, £3.97 inc free delivery Lets hope it does not snow between now and the end of September
  12. Oooooo this has reminded me to buy myself a snow shovel I have been out of the country for the past 2 years and I hope that buying the shovel now will mean that we have a snow-free winter I can only hope I will be checking out all the other goodies that have been mentioned
  13. Mish, I am having the same problem I have owned a classic but was thinking of buying a Go next time because you can remove the nest box completely, as Tweety has said. I have decided to visit Cotswold Chickens to see one in the flesh before I decide
  14. Sheila I am so, so very sorry to hear about Shep. I cannot even begin to imagine what you and your family are going through. I am thinking of you all at this difficult time. Love and hugs Paula x
  15. I have just one of these and I love it! Such a cheeky looking little car! Its for me and the 3 kids to pootle about in so its perfect. I have the twinair engine so the road tax is free and does about a million miles to a tank
  16. Oooooo I am going to Reading this afternoon so will have to pop into M&S I have not had any M&S food since coming back
  17. Oh yeah, count me in
  18. I am and that would be lovely What a great idea
  19. Helloooooooo! I finally have internet at home However my desk was the only casualty in the move, so my mac is on a small borrowed side table and I am perched on DS's wooden Thomas The Tank Engine step Thank you for all of your warm wishes I am in Hampshire and I think I have an RDA about 10 mins away. Just need to do some homework now I am back online. Its soooooo lovely to be back. I am surprised at how good it is in fact! The kids seem happy also. The 4 bedrooms were painted within a day and a half of arriving back The boxes were all unpacked within 5 days Thankfully the culture shock is not too great! Just silly things really, like how slow the escalators are here You can get whiplash when you step on the ones in Singapore
  20. I forgot about those Thanks guys x
  21. As I am sure some of you already know (Facebook chums!), this is my last day in Singapore I am leaving due to personal circumstances *cough* So I am leaving Singapore with mixed emotions.... I have had a fantastic time and made some fantastic friends... Its been a fantastic experience for the children, who have throughly enjoyed it I have spent most of my time doing voluntary work for the Singapore RDA, which has been hugely rewarding. I have also been doing voluntary work for the National Equestrian Centre of Singapore that specializes in Equine Assisted Therapy for children who have "failed" mainstream Singapore school. Its a part of the curriculum so they have to attend one morning a week. I have met some truly inspirational people through this... I hope to train and qualify for this myself The children will be following me 5 days later so that I can have the house sorted and ready for when they arrive... DS has already requested that we get chickens that we don't eat but the ones that lay eggs Sooooooo I will be back! See you in the UK
