Looking Like a Granny

It was something my boyfriend says regularly when I am watching television: "You look just like a granny!" He does not say this because of the programs I watch (although he would prefer some action movie), or because I cannot keep my hands still while watching. Now I come to think of it, in fact it ís because of this last: for while I am watching telly, I... knit. In the last weeks I made my boyfriend a nice, blue shawl, I started one in red and grey for myself, and I started a pair of socks. Well, I started the first sock, I will knit those for the first time.

Counting the Ages

Some say that time goes faster when one grows older. Perhaps I can use that as a reason that it has been almost a whole month since I have been seen on my weblog!

Meanwhile it is my birthday tomorrow. I will turn 26, exactly a month after one of my teachers achieved the same age. I remember last year, when I found out that she was only one month older than I am, and another teacher even some months younger - I felt terribly old! Anyway, off course I could stop my horror by thinking about how very old my boyfriend would become a few months later. Really, it helps.

Could it also be age that I feel so tired? With a big yawn I wish to be in bed right now. Oh, wait, it was half past 6 this morning, and I am still not completely well after new-years-eve. So... I do not have to worry about that yet.
