At least I'm getting some Christmas knitting done, several pairs of socks have been completed just one more to do, and I'm finished. Hopefully some pics next time.

My WIP at the moment is Mr. Greenjeans. The yarn, some Paton's Merino I got from House of Fraser sale in the summer, for half price; yes I'm a cheapskate, rarely buy anything at full price if I can get it for less. I would call the colour cranberry, I love the way it is knitting up and just hope it will fit when finished, I'm allowing a bit more ease than in the original pattern.
Things aren't improving much at home. My mother is still with me with little improvement in her back or mobility. Steven also had a week at home with a cold but is back at day care now. We had our flu jabs this morning and should be in the next round of swine flu jabs when the surgery gets them in.

A further visit from the doctor on Monday confirmed that she has a collapsed vertebra due to osteoporosis. We're supposed to go to hospital for an Xray, but she doesn't really feel like going at the moment as she can't walk far.

These are growing outside the conservatory. The pink rose is Bonica from David Austin. No scent, unfortunately, but compact and suitable for the space it is growing in.

A small blanket and shawl.......
and a couple of Jean Greenhowe's Rainbow Babies......
Also last week these arrived, yes my Ravelry Day tickets, after some delay due to paypal problems, happily now resolved. Roll on June 6th. The speakers/workshops seem to increase daily, the latest being Debbie Bliss.
I've also been distracted lately by this Lambcam which I find compulsive viewing. The Angora Goat kids are due to arrive any day but are in no hurry to emerge, probably due to the cold rainy weather they have been having lately.

This year's robin is a shy, retiring soul, not aggressive as robins usually are. Here he is waiting patiently for his turn.

So it is another boring day for the lad. At least he is enjoying the television at the moment.
Plenty of knitting on the go but not much to show at the moment, mostly charity knits.
