Six random things about me

4. My foster parents lived in Worthing, my foster sisters still live there
5. I love classical violin music, Vanessa Mae and Bond
6. I love eating but hate cooking.
I am not actually going to tag anyone else, I can't remember who's done this one and who hasn't. If you want to play along then please feel free and have fun.
I got my cupcake swap parcel today. Inside a reversible apron and some green tea which I love but it sends me hyperactive so it is strictly rationed by DH who can't cope with me bouncing off the walls and an American Cooking magazine. Lovely gifts. The material on the apron is so funky and vibrant that even though I never, ever cook (baking with the kids doesn't count, as they're cooking, I'm supervising) I am going to have find an excuse to wear it.
Peri had to been in the photo. It's not that he actually seeks the limelight, he's just so darn interested in anything I'm doing. Honestly I should have called him shadow because he's never more than a foot away from wherever I am. I love it. However it would seem that he's slowly taking over the blog. I might even have to consider letting him have his own. Well I would like a shot if I thought he could handle all that typing, but who's going to have to sort things out when he's mauled the mouse to bits. Moi!
I decided, foolishly I might add, to clean out the various boxes, bags and other containers which house current UFOs; not the ones which have no hope of being finsihed but the ones I'm still pretty happy to do a row here and a row there until completion.
I thought I only had four projects on the go. I've repeatedly told myself that it's too much to have more than four on the go. The brain can only cope with a certain number of items before things start to fall off. So here are the four.
The observant ones will note there are actually seven projects in the picture, a cream sleeping bag (still can't say who for) a brown, cream and pink ripple blanket, for Daisy's bed, Ophelia waiting for the final push awhile now, a blue cardigan ( baby size) and a red vest top for Daisy, a pinkie purple book cover, and a pink bag experiment that I forgot to put eyelet holes in. I didn't photograph but should have the pink cardigan which is awaiting buttons and will have them tomorrow. So that makes eight. I have no idea how that multiplication happened, I guess they just feel out the memory bank. Perhaps I ought to continue the search in case there are more?
I have also frogged some lilac cotton from a poncho given to my girls (the poncho had been made by a very helpful nanna and worn by the previous family's girls, ) we didn't want the poncho, but the yarn was too pretty to waste. I'm thinking, blanket or maybe a sweater. There's about 200 grams.
The photo doesn't really show off how lovely the colour really is.
Finally if anyone has bothered reading all the way to the end, and well done to you if you have, I just had to share these cute little scissors bought for me by my DH. Sometimes he can be nice.
