our Christmas, 2009

it started with Christmas Eve skate...

with my derby girls...


there were lilies, a tradition in our house, and lots of cards from loved ones...

Lily did another magnificent job decorating the tree...


we ate and drank far too much, and had a ball...


Mum saw my new tattoo and is still talking to me - here's the photo she took of me and my darling sister-in-law...


but most importantly, I managed all this and I finished the damn socks with hours to spare!

I took photos, but in my tired state have somehow managed to delete them without uploading them, so you'll all just have to believe me ;)

I just discovered your blog doing a search for "knitting" and "roller derby"! I, too, am a knitter first and roller girl second. I'm always thrilled to find like-minded bloggers!
