We had a quiet christmas. We didn't have to rush off to anyones place on xmas day, we stayed home and the boys opened there prezzys and tried out all their new gadgets. We layzed around and ate and drank and ate some more on this and that then i cooked our xmas dinner in the evening instead of the middle of the day. It was hot and i didn't want to cook so i didn't till later. I dida big chicken all stuffed with all the trimmings and a turkey roll which was really tasty and there is no waste on them , all meat. We were so full we didn't bother with dessert which was xmas pudding...it's still in the pantry! It was a good day.
On boxingday i packed up the truck and the boys and i went to my mums place. We had another xmas dinner she cooked and ate to much again. So today we are taking it easy food wise.
It has been so hot and muggy with it but today it is raining a bit but still muggy. The gardens need a drink and are getting it now.
Santa never bought me a new camera unfortunately s, so no pics.
While i'm at mums I am hoping to make some progress on my african flower afghan as i have't touched it for 2 weeks! Today is the first day i haven't felt tired as i've had quite a few late nights with work and christmas shopping and other stuff so finnally i can relax and not think of getting up for work for a couple of weeks, yay!! I hope everyone has a great break and holiday.

Is this an egg or what?

Well the other day i went to collect my hens eggs and this is what i found! This really huge egg! This is the fourth one i have had like this. The first one weighed in at 98 grams...the next 102gm... then 104gm.. then the latest weighed in at 106grams! I had that for my breakfast and it was a double yoker and very yummy too!!! they all were. The chook still lives! In the pic the egg in the centre of the bowl is a normal sized one . All the other ones are the extra-large ones that my son wanted to keep for souveniers. He taped the shells back together as you can see!

A little bit of progress!

Well I made a wee bit of progress on my throw. The pic is not a good one as it was done in hurry as i was using it to see how it will look. The camera is great for that as you can flik from one pic to another and view it really quickly and see what 'pops' out at you.
I have been joining the rows end to end so far with white yarn and then i will join them with the lime green all the length along and do some sort of edging all around ,probably with a a zig-zag border not a straight one.
My next crochet project will be to try out the bauble decorations on attic24.typepad.com blog, as she has put up a great tutorial . I should be trying to get some more of my candied hexys done but there is no show of that happening just yet as work is keeping me busy!
My little kitty , 'ozzy', has not come home and we haven't been able to find him, his brother,'hurly' is missing him and us too...I keep hoping i will see him looking in the window as he use to do when i am on the computer writing on my blog.
