At lunchtime I'm off to the Gold Coast to join Sandra and her mother for Christmas, All going well we'll be back on Sunday night to begin our real break.
My extra-lacey Baktus scarf has been favourited 59 times in Ravelry already. It has also been queued 20 times, but mostly by people who have hundreds and even more than a thousand items in their queue, so I'm not holding my breath for it to become the first viral scarf of 2010.
Play nice. I'll be checking in from time to time. I hope all who read here have a lovely few days. If they're not lovely, but rather fraught and stressful, be assured that you're not on your own. There are many others around the world who dread this celebration, for many reasons. Try and see the funny side.
