My daughter got up early and made me these for my birthday today.

I am the luckiest of mamas.

My friend Foxy knit me a Muppet.

Tiki tried to kill the Muppet but it is safely put up and I am going to sew felt teeth on it, glue on a pair of googly eyes and then I am going to line it and put a snap closure on it and THEN I am going to use it as my knitting bag for when I go to SnB. My friend Foxy, who intended the Muppet to be a huge joke, is probably appalled that I am actually going to use it, but hey. There's a lotta love in that there Muppet bag.

So today I turned 36 and I have to say, when your natal day and the advent of the (western) calendar new year coincide, it makes for a lot of Deep Thots and ruminating and just generally, thinking about changes and resolutions of all sorts. I haven't really made any, though I do have some plans and some areas where I'd like to get some momentum going forward. But more on that later.

Husband and children threw me a lovely party tonight, good friends, great food, good wine and a lot of fun conversation. It was truly a happy, happy day!
