Well Santa must have thought I've been very nice, because he brought me lots of knitty goodnes for Christmas!

I can't believe my luck! I'm looking forward to poring over them and seeing what I will make from them.
Not much knitting going on, too much eating and drinking instead. I have made a small bit of progress on the last Hourglass Sock, I'm about halfway down the foot. I'd like to finish these before starting anything else, they're on the needles far too long for my liking. I started these on the plane in October!
Speaking of Florida, my sister in law and her family have gone over to the house today for two weeks. They love being there for New Years. *sigh* I wish I was there too. I hope they have a great time.
Christmas day was lovely, my daughter was great fun to watch opening all her presents from Santa.
Hubby made me very proud. He wore the jumper all day, and in his parents house Christmas night, he went around to all the family there showing off the jumper and saying how great he thought it was. Awww. I think I'll keep him for another while.
Mam and Dad were in good form too; Dad was just relieved all the music was over! The music at Midnight Mass was absolutely beautiful. He outshone himself again, as he seems to do every year. I marvel that he still does it at almost 86. He's inspirational.
Mam had a good day, she was more lucid than I've seen her in a while and she ate lots of dinner so that's good. However, since then she's been very bad. It's like leaving the house at all sends her over the edge. She's barely left the bed since and just cries all the time. I'm at the end of my tether. I just can't leave Dad with her like that all the time, it's not fair. Something will have to be done next year, I just need to figure out what.
I think my next post shall contain my New Years Resolutions. I will try to be practical so I won't include world peace or waking up a size 10, but instead will focus on achievable targets, both knitterly and personally. I must put my thinking cap on!
