That was a good two weeks.
Tomorrow, like many Melbournians, I go back to work after two weeks off. I usually take a holiday over Christmas, and this year's has seemed particularly fun. It started with watching Australia win the cricket, continued with (hopefully, I don't want to write about it until I'm sure it has worked) resolving Tarragon's emotional issues. I actually partied on New Years Eve, joined my first mystery knit-a-long and then the two weeks have ended with a few days at home, just to relax and unwind. I got some decent knitting done - I've only got one sleeve and the collar of Celestine to go. I made some more progress on the spinning for Leon's winter set. Excitingly, despite almost constant knitting and spinning, and doing some pretty tough CrossFit workouts, my hands, arms and shoulders are in decent shape, due, in no small measure that I maintained my fairly rigorous stretching regime over the break. Today I even made it to yoga. All in all a very satisfying holiday, and I feel relaxed, refreshed and ready to tackle 2014 head on.
