Merry Christmas Deer, It's Snowing!

So, the weather men predict that we are to have at least 6 inches of snow tomorrow, at the moment it's snowing but only a light covering, it's supposed to get heavier from  4am.  If it happens as they say I will be getting public transport to work tomorrow, sigh, I HATE public transport but my house is in a cul-de-sac on a hill, I've got no chance of getting my car out of the street if we have much snow, getting it back up the hill is virtually impossible.  
So, my wellies are at the ready, lol.

I finished my January ornament for the SAL this week

Merry Christmas Deer
Free Design from The little Stitcher
Fabric unknown
Threads - 1089 Threadworx

It's only a diddy one, but I'm happy with how it turned out.
Not a lot else going on this week, I did go to the cinema last night with Joanne to see Les Miserables.   Can't say that I was that impressed, it was OK, the singing of every line can get a bit much after a while.   It may be different on the stage, I don't know, but for me It not worth all the hype.
There is one more film I would like to see next week, The Life of Pi.  I'm reading it at the moment, on my kindle, It's good and I'm interested to see how it works on film.

Until next time x

Happy New Year!

I hope that 2013 is everything you hope it will be.

I know many people make resolutions at this time of year, a time for new starts etc.   Personally I haven't made resolutions for a long time, and I'm not going to this year.  There are a few things I would like to do though, like visit more places and get out more at the weekends, read more and try to be a happier person.
I've set my reading goal to 50 books this year again (on Goodreads), Although I didn't reach my goal of 50 books last year It seems like a nice round number to go with, If I don't reach it again that's OK.
I've joined in with Elaine's 2013 Christmas Ornament SAL for the first time and have been searching for freebies to stitch, I've found a few that fit the bill and look as though they will be quite quick to stitch, just need to sort out some fabric.

My first outing of 2013 is going to be the cinema today, I'm going to see 'The Impossible' this afternoon, just me, a bottle of coke and large cheesy nachos, lol.

Until next time x
