Knitting, naughty puppies and what to do with my hair!

Keeping Regular? Well I lied. Maybe fornightly to start with?

So after I bought the stitch and bitch book, I finally got some needles and wool at the weekend and have started to knit. Currently it looks a bit like a scarf for Barbie, with a couple of teeny gaps! 

The parents visited this weekend and we had much deserved chilling time. Plus they bring with them the crazy pups, Leo and Maisey (Llahasa Apsos dogs). Leo decided to carry my wool from the sofa right into the garden, whilst I was still hanging on to the needles. Needless to say, the wool has now got a few knots that are a bugger to get out. So tonight after Hip Hop (dance class!) I am going to attempt cutting the wool and then learning how to add the wool in again. Cue reading stitch and bitch and searching for youtube tutorials.

The weekend was somewhat overshadowed by the rugby, the welsh contingent are not happy chappies right now... crossing fingers for 3rd place, just to cheer them up!

Wedding planning: pretty quiet right now. Got a thing for 3ft yellow balloons again thanks to this lovely wedding here:

Hopefully seeing a florist on Saturday too, so can start thinking about what we want.

Oh and 'bridal bob or not' is back in force after seeing this post:

I am thinking bob all the way! (Mainly because I am fed up of growing it)

I was also extremely excited about the launch of - go take a peek!

Keeping Regular

One of the number one rules of blogging is that you blog REGULARLY.

Well surely this is if you are trying to cultivate an audience? And does anyone really expect to cultivate (is this the right term?) straight away?

But anyway, I digress, as I do... I will start to blog on a regular basis. I will book time in to do it and I will post SOMETHING at least once a week!

Yes? Yes I will.

I have also started a bit of a fitness 'regime'. Well not really a regime as such, more a smattering of occassional classes. Last week I attempted Zumba (great fun) and Step Aerobic (sadist teeny tiny instructor). Tonight I am off to a Hip Hop dance class... (dont laugh) and Wednesday is Yogalates.
YAY for new stuff!

Today I also order a book called 'Stitch n Bitch'  beginners guide to knitting. Yes, I am going to start to learn to do something creative.

It is all quiet on the wedding front. 8 Months to go and we are pretty sorted:
Venue booked, Dress purchased, Suits chosen, DJ booked, Photographer done, Honeymoon Cottage chosen.... so next jobs are: Bridemaids (yep I changed my mind again), flowers, stationery... oh thats it really! So taking the foot of the gas for a while to enjoy the run up to Christmas. :)
