Catching up.

I've been practising with the panorama feature of my new camera.

Yet more time has passed without me getting my blogging act together.It's the busy season at school. We've got to get everyone's testscores collated, process all the data, get the Y6s ready to transfer to their new schools, get all the other children ready to move to their new classes, plan for a new curriculum and don't forget parents'evenings, trips, sports days and summer fetes.

I've been tired too. My anaemia is back, despite all the iron I take, so that's a bit sapping and stressful. I'm looking forward to the end of term and the summer holiday.

Ireceived a lovely package from Lamira in the Ravelry Over 40 group swap. I've been thinking about trying some Kaffe Fassett sock yarn for a while now and Lamira has fulfilled that wish for me.

All the goodies were packed in a lovely round box, which I have filled with stamps and stickers (for marking and rewarding the children at school) and put in my office.It will be a very civilised addition to my desk.

While I'm at it, I'll also include a photo of my International Scarf Exchange package :

Isn't the scarf gorgeous? It's malabrigo, another yarn that was on my wish list. This package came from Brenda in VA.
