Maybe someday I'll do this on a more regular basis - then again, maybe not.

What I'm reading:

American Gods by Neil Gaiman - this guy is brilliant - I will be gobbling up everything else of his I can get my hands on shortly. And he's got stuff for the whole family - I'm going to read Coraline with Liv and I'll be reading Anansi Boys too and then I think I might re-read Good Omens (which was co-written with Terry Pratchett) and I might also read Stardust because I saw and loved loved loved the movie - so really, if the movie was that good how absolutely awesome must the book be?!

With the big kid I am reading Runaway Dolls by Ann M. Martin and Laura Godwin. It's the third in the series and we're really enjoying them - all about a family of living dolls that have been owned by succesive generations of the same family and their adventures. The first two books were: The Doll People and The Meanest Doll in the World.

I am knitting:

Swatching for a sweater (bolero really) for Liv - socks for me - hat for new baby across the street that I want to cast on today...

I am picking up my new car tonight - we are getting rid of my reliable but too tiny Kia Rio RXV and getting a Kia Rondo - which will allow us to go out together somewhere as a family including Maggie the puppy - it's really not good to have to choose between your puppy and your husband... It will also allow us to pack in some camping equipment with all the aforementioned people and get to a campsite somewhere and be able to breathe the whole way there... The new car is Java Brown - you can't go wrong with a coffee coloured car I say...

And just because I can here is a pic of my dynamic duo taken a couple of months or so ago:

That's it for now - until next time - I remain,
