Busy, busy, busy

How is it that in the month leading up to Christmas, time starts going faster and there are suddenly a million things to do and no time to do them? It's about this time of year that I start remembering all my New Year's resolutions from last Christmas/New Year when I resolved to make gifts throughout the year and be organised and have everything done by the end of November. Ha! Fat chance, lol!
I do have some Christmas gifts organised - the littlest person in the house is mostly sorted (barring finishing the crochet dolls blanket I'm making her, which I'm stitching together right now) and I have a few things for the next smallest person in the house, but the boys are proving to be a challenge. Fin just had his birthday and we went halves with him in an iPod Touch, and he also got some iTunes vouchers for his birthday and a book, so I'm a bit stumped with him. Ollie I have nothing for yet. Gaaaaaah! Panic is beginning to set in!

In the meantime here are a few pics of what I've been up to recently:






Not terribly exciting, but I finally got around to overlocking the edge of my new tablecloth - I really should hem it, but it's ok as is for the meantime.

  And I just had to share the stunning view from our living room - these were taken at sunset one day last week. I love how the mountains in the distance (they're the Kaikouras in the South Island) correspond with the cityscape of Island Bay.
