Monday 4th January

Firstly, do pop yourselves along to the jolly lovely and gorgeous Amanda over at Crafty in the Med. She was one of my first followers and one of the first blogs I found to read when I was starting out. Anyway, if you are quick, she's got a GIVEAWAY on the go!

It was also my first day back at work and the inset was all about First Aid. 
It all went rather smoothly and I have no funny tales to tell! Not one!

Miss 21 is gearing up for her trip tomorrow. We'll all be up at 3am to see her off to the airport. Her young man is taking her. He's then taking Theo to Newcastle. It's going to be not strange because I'm used to her not being here with Uni etc. Just awful that it's so far away and I'll not settle till she gets there safely.

First of all the planes need to not crash/blow up/be shot down etc
Then she needs to not get planted with drugs
Then she needs to stay safe and not be a back packer murdered on holiday statistic.

In other news, have a look at my lovely new half price rug. It feels so lovely in bare feet! 

Sleeve 1 part 1 of 2 is done. A massive 6hrs 37minutes this took! I'll cast on sleeve 1 part 2 of 2 later. 
That's my other new half price rug it's on! 

This was one of this year's new additions to the tree. I like stars! 

The HG is in from work and I've not got tea on yet!! 
Right must go and get sorted.

Love from
Rachel * on edge * Radiostar xx

    1. As soon as I know she's safe I'll be blogging it! X

  2. disappointing........I was hoping you would at least have cut somebody's vitals off with a tourniquet or strangled them with their
    Your list for your daughter's travels will be my list for my husband's next month. He will be traveling to South Africa to visit the grave of his younger brother who died last year. I don't want him to go.
    That's a very nice rug. I love squishing my toes in rugs-x-

    1. There was no humourous occurrences at all!! It was. Very. Serious. Business! It was also the least hands on First Aid course I've ever been on. Hence lack of humour opportunities!!
      How long will he be in SA for? I'll get here to empathise. It's a super rug for toe squishing!

    2. He'll be there for five days Rachel. I've just sobbed my way through buying his travel insurance (how stupid is that?).

  3. Why is Theo going to Newcastle? I'm sure she'll be fine and come back having had a whale of a time, but I do get the whole worried parent thing. Fill your head with other things, it's the way I deal with worried parent times. Lovely rug- is that the one that was tripping you over? Just as well you've done a first aid refresher! CT xx

    1. I think Theo is going to Newcastle so the young man is slightly less bereft! Plus Theo has to get used to the accents soon enough because it's where he'll be living. Sniff sniff! It is the rug I tripped over! It's all flat and well behaved now! X

    2. Well, all I can say is he'd better do some guest posts on your blog from time to time! xx

  4. Awwww that is such a nice mention....thanks lots!!!

    don't mess with lady luck do not think or say those things .....nothing bad is going to happen to Miss 21!!!

    keep well

    Amanda xx

  5. We never stop worrying about them

  6. Glad the first aid went well. I hope that all goes just as well for Miss 21 and that she has a great time! xx

  7. Safe journeys to your babies me dear x

  8. Hope all goes well for Miss 21 on her trip - which it will!! Take care of yourself xx

  9. I love the way that you've timed the making of that sleeve so precisely! xx
