And that is exactly what i did!
Lunch, drinks and some sticky date at the local pub with beer garden.
Morphing into an evening with Dr Who and my mum..and yet...it was a day of love and laughter...just what the doctor ordered.
Dh gave me a Wii (which he and O have spent the first day of the school hols playing whilst I am at work), a new compact digital camera and a great hat in purple (my colour!)
Lots of wine, some scented candles and the odd gift voucher...and I am just happy to spend some time with family and friends.
Bonus Birthday present was the new Rockin' Sock Club yarn ..Tide pooling that looks pretty great.

Knitting, knitting, sitting, knitting. More sitting than knitting in the end!
Don't you hate it when you are all set for a knit and a chat and you run out of yarn.
Thinking you put another ball in the bag, but obviously not - as it isn't there. That is exactly what happened to me at the Stitch 'n' Bitch last night.

My FLS is blocking (after removing the white constantly sheding cat) quite well.
I purchased some stunning buttons today to wear...a little unusual but they caught my eye.

With the sun promising to provide a warm day I have done a load of washing, dishes, cleaned the kitchen. An initial tidy and assessment of the dining room (Our leftover bits room at the moment) and set up Chocolate Anya for Blocking (in addition to enjoying the Wollmeise Sock Club Package!).
I love the sound of completing a project in the morning!
I have swatched for the Blue Gab (Gabrielle) in the Maritime colourway.
I had to start a couple of times, as I did it at the end of a workday/workweek (Since I have today off to get some things organised). Note to self - do not start swatching new relatively complicated pattern at 8 at night after a massive week
Luckily, I have finished all the knitting for My February Lady Sweater. I just need to buy some buttons. Tomorrow I will head to All buttons Great and Small to find the perfect match.
I will have to Block
Weather permitting I should get to finish Dark ivy in the next few days...all the knitting bar the neck extension at the back is done..its the sewing up in warm weather I am avoiding.
And the Chocolate Anya still needs blocking (I know I am slack).
As the weater has warmed Tulip has been liberated and I am also swatching for a Gabrielle by Sarah Dallas. Roll on Summer for cotton knits and colours both pale and bold!
I have been trawling Ravelry for the best in Summer knitting and have queued many a summer top! So my knitting appetite is inspired.

2 days from Start to finish. You can't beat that.
Yarn: Shepherd Colour 4 Me 8ply.
This pattern is interesting to knit, quick, and looks great in any yarn.
