September 18th, 2007

Oh boy, I have been having so much fun. I think I laughed more in the last five days than I have in the whole of this year. I know you can’t choose your family, but if I could, I’d still want these guys for mine. They’re sweet and kind hearted and thoughtful, and So Much Fun!!! It was just what I needed, a break from life, routine, and work, and instead, a few days of wandering around Pembrokeshire, doing very little except talk, laugh, eat, and drink.   

But despite all that, I’m feeling navy blue today. We only get to see them every couple of years, and that sucks with a capital S, because we have such a fabulous time when we’re together. So, cheer me up. Tell me what you’ve been up to while we’ve been playing hookey. And tell me how much you missed me…….

  1. We have missed you! I checked the blog earlier and no Dee *sad face* so its lovely to have you back, and I’m so pleased that you had such a wonderful time. I have been pickling onions, sewing a bag, gardening, and knitting my first picot edge 🙂

  2. Wished desperately that I had been your American visitor(s) – I LOVE to see my English family. I have to work at getting a trip together (perhaps this is where our new practice of “living simply” will actually pay off…)

    So glad you are back!

  3. Dee, Even though you clearly said you would not return until Tuesday, I missed you so much, I still checked the blog every day. Pathetic! I love to see photos of places you visit and hang out–feel free to include if you like! Welcome back!

  4. Welcome back! I’m with Sheryl, checked your blog every day. Missed you, your news, all the fantastic eye-candy. I’m baking now, been knitting at the weekend and watching boys play football. I’ve also had a mass clearout of The Stash Basket – didn’t clear much out though, got greedy and kept most of it!

  5. I missed you too – I had a lovely weekend, knitting show was a little dissapointing – not much knitting going on so I’ll be going to Allie Pallie too, but I did buy some random bits and pieces (keeping them in my fabulous Heather bag!) I spent lots of time doing home stuff (baking, making jam etc)
    My family all live in Denmark, not quite as far – we see each other once or twice a year, I really do understand how you feel when you or they leave – it’s horrible (I always cry buckets!)

  6. Hi Dee I’m tring hard to think of a different way to say I missed you and your blog but perhaps because I need my dinner I can’t!! I think I understand how you feel as I am going to the USA soon to visit family and I am qiute excited. Trying hard to finish some scarf knitting to take as gifts and the saying ‘ more hurry, less speed’, certainly applies. Here’s hoping tonight’s knitting will be more successful. Take care.

  7. Okay, that pig sketch sort of stuck it to the part of me that is relinquishing being a vegetarian.

    I LOVE the sheep – think you should put that on a label for yarn that is ‘normally’ used for socks – too funny! Are you going to draw us the long haired, unshorn, hippie sheep soon too?
