Alex and Simon!!

It was my friend Alex's birthday on Sunday and I went round to see her yesterday to drop off her presents. Here is what I bought her!

This fabulous knitted couple!! I think this is what Alex and Simon will look like in many many years to come (her elder daughter insists she is middle aged already although she is 31 like me!) The lady is knitting, which is what Alex does lots of and the man is reading a newspaper which is what Simon likes to do. The glasses were originally on the lady but I swapped them round as Simon wears glasses and Alex doesn't.

I *think* she liked them :) Nathaniel did anyway and played with them for a while! I also bought her a copy of The Time Travellers Wife as she mentioned that she wanted to read it and I can't find my copy anywhere under the mountains of books in our house! I also bought her some yarn and can't wait to see what she makes with it.

Cheers pal, I'm not sure I'd have said some knitted people if you'd asked me what I may like as a gift but they are very cute and are sitting in our bedroom now. Simon loves them too!

You need to change your profile blurb, or are you telling fibs about your age?!

Thank you!
