Hope you had a blessed Christmas

Happy Christmas, everyone!

It's Boxing Day, and we're about to leave for our long holiday. 3 weeks in Malaysia and Singapore, running away from the heat of Sydney!

I'll have limited access to the iternet for the next three weeks so I guess there will be very few posts. I'll justhave to have one super long post when I get back!

We had a great Christmas. It was quieter than in previous years. Chris' family did not have their annual huge gathering - I wonder why.. His brother and sister-in-law moved to the UK earlier this year, so we have two less people to cater for this year. It was strange though, as I normally just make a potato bake and help Chris' mumwith the Christmas meal. This year I made the potato bake, a salad and trifle, and it still felt like less work. I wonder why. Did it have anything to do with catering for fewer people? One would not think that two mouths (or stomachs) would make that great a difference.

I asked for money this Christmas. It goes towards paying for knitting and spinning supplies I think. I think we did well - both Chris and I. We finished our shopping really early this year. The last purchase was a Lotto pack for his grandmother.

Chris bought me a pair of diamond earrings which I picked out on my last trip home a few weeeks ago. I love them! They have hardly left my ears since I unwrapped them on Christmas eve*. Thank you Chris! I bought him his graphics card (nerd boy!) and a box of miscellaneous goodies including a couple of books, a bottle of wine, a pair of cuff-links and some toiletries (for our trip).

His brother and sister-in-law has once again broke the $20 rule and have been more than generous with their gifts. Chris got a case of wine (wow!) - all good ones too! On top of that we received Christmas money, and rumour has it that there are more gift in the post! Wow!

*We open presents on Christmas eve - Filipino tradition, I think. My famiy does not have any Christmas traditions since I am probably the nly one who celebrates this festival, and attending Christmas morning service is probably the extent of my celebrations when I am on my own.

Ene's Scarf

Is plodding along slowly. I think my scarf pal will definitely get her Ene. I am up to row 55 or something now.
The rows are getting shorter and more repetitive. No piccies, sorry...

I did make some mistakes and didn't feel like frogging. I am hoping that they won't be too noticeable. i checked my stitch count and so far, so good.. I hope yo don't mind, scarf pal. Just think of it as a variation to the pattern, ok?


Is coming on the plane with me again. I need a crochet project to keep me sane! I hope to finish this scarf during this trip. I guess if I finish it on the way there, I'll just have to get more yarn for the trip back! No kniting needles on the plane, yoou see...

Wishing all of you a blessed and joyful Christmas!
Isa 7:14Therefore the Lord himself shall give you a sign; Behold, a virgin shall conceive, and bear a son, and shall call his name Immanuel.
glad to hear you had a good Christmas! have fun on your singapore/malaysia trip! =D
