Late Twenties...

Yep, I'm now 27. Late 20s, as my dear Mum pointed out to me. (Thanks Mum)

Normally I don't like my birthday, but for the first time in AGES I have had the day off work.

And Oh made me a cup of tea while I opened my cards, and then he cooked me Eggs Royale. For those not in the know, that's English muffin, smoked salmon, poached egg and hollandaise sauce. Yum! Lovely.

I also got lots of thoughtful gifts, from "Never Not Knitting" from both my sister and OH (I've organised a trade for one of them...), some lush toiletries from Soap and Glory, some music, a funny mug (I collect mugs) and this...
Skein Holder / Swift
It's a swift or skein holder. From OH. It's lovely. He tells me that he looked on Ravelry (I allow him my password so that he can do exactly this) for where to get a good one from. Isn't he the best boyfriend? (Non knitters, imagine being knotted up in 400m of fine but strong wool which you want to be in a ball... this stops the knotting up - mostly)
We're going out for a Chinese later on, and then on to a New Year's Party.

I'm working on my 27 things I have achieved in my 27th year - I'll have it by tomorrow.

So, for 7 hours time, Happy New Year Everyone!
