Making A Deal With Myself


I noticed something weird the other day while scrolling down my blog page. In both 2007 and 2008, I wrote exactly the same number of posts, 64, without even intending for it to be the same! Spooky!!

I haven't been knitting anything in the New Year that I can write about, really. I'm in the process of designing something, which I had to do a lot of swatching and ripping back on. I'm nearly finished the actual item, but all the swatching really took it out of me. I've had to make a deal with myself, no more video games till the knitting is done! Which is quite an incentive actually, since I'm playing Breath of Fire on my snes emulator, and I'm quite far into the game. I'm also playing Prof. Layton and the Curious Village on the DS (I got that game for xmas), and I'm obsessed with working out all the puzzles! But my knitting was falling by the wayside, so I'm going to keep knitting this project till it's done, then I'll be allowed to play games again!

You got Prof Layton?? Wow, that was like gold dust here before Christmas! I saw a second hand copy going for £99!! I'm gonna see if I can get one second hand some time :-)

I got Prof. Layton as well! I don't actually have a DS, so I had to borrow eldest small person's when I had the chance. Still managed to complete the whole thing in three days, though. Now I'm looking to treat "him" to a wifi connection so I can download the extra puzzles..!

There were tons of copies in the shops here! Me and my Dad both got it, we're racing to see who can compleete it first. Wow, Kate, three days!! You're much better at puzzles than me! :)
