So, it's been a while. To get me back into the swing of things, here's a very brief rundown of the past few weeks:

- Started back at work
- Got Ofsted-ed (inspected) in the third week of the term
- We got a 'good with outstanding features' result, which is the second highest you can get (after 'outstanding') and pretty darn good bearing in mind less than five years ago we were a failing school on the brink of closure
- I've completely overhauled my eating habits and am eating much better and loosing weight as a result
- This led to chronic tummy aches for a week or two while my body got rid of toxins and means that any time I have a glass of wine (or more) I get tummy aches :(
- I've signed up to do a photography course with the Open University (expect lots of pictures starting in the next few weeks)
- I've decided that next year I'm going to grade for my black belt in kung fu
- I've finished my eleventh shawl and so completed my '11 shawls in 2011' challenge
- I just need to photograph and post up the last two...
- I've cast on for the most beautiful pair of gloves ever
- Three Oaks
- In this yarn from the Uncommon Thread:

- While I was looking at the Uncommon Thread, this yarn accidently fell into my basket too:

- But it doesn't know what it wants to be when it grows up yet.
