This watch I got yesterday at Debenhams. Aint it pretty?? (btw thank you to debs for their photo that I "borrowed") When I showed this to Mark he said "Leave it to you to get something like that!" My reply was "What? you mean because its got flowers on it?" And his reply was "Yes!"... heheh oops I didnt MEAN to get it with flower, honest! Its just the only one that I liked for 20£... I dont wear watches often so I really didnt fancy paying loads for one that eventually will end up in the back of my drawer... who knows its cute enough I may just always wear it.....

And meet our new plants! The only other plant we have is a Christmas Cactus, I bought him AGES ago on sale at Sainsburrys but its not flowerd since I got it.. fingers crossed it finally flowers agian this year! But since I been here Marks never been fussed over houseplants but the other day we were at the local B&Q and ended up passing these and he said how about we got one? so we got the first and third one pictured and then the next day we went back up for something else and came home with the middle one.. OOPS! haha I love em.. they pretty!...

Right finally got you guys some pictures up and finished one scarf I am off of here now to update my Ravelry and knit some more on the plum scarf... WOO HOO!...

Looks great. I couldn't wait with blocking it -am too curoous. besides, you must have a lot of room if you can block 5 scarfs at once!!
Can't wait to finish my melon :-) And I really have to try that zephyr soon...

It's beautiful... nicely done. LOVE that watch... I'm "green" with envy.. speaking of green... what are their names? You know you will have to talk to them everyday and especially during watering them.

I didn't leave you a comment! I love the purple for the second Melon scarf and I can't wait to see them all blocked out. The thing with my bed is that it's a waterbed and it does get hot under it. I just need to do some major cleaning. But thanks for the suggestion.
