Wow, it's been an absolute age since I last posted on LJ.  I don't even know if anyone still uses LJ apart from [ profile] glammetalkitten 

Lucas is growing like a weed, despite going through phases of eating bugger all.  We're waiting to find out what school he'll be going to and should find out in a month.  It's crazy to think that in a few months he'll be starting primary school!  (And at some point I should try to get my head around the English educational system which makes no sense whatsoever to me.)

My brother and his girlfriend had their first baby this month---Caitlin Lily---so I am a proper Aunt for the first time, and I will shortly be an aunt-by-marriage for the second time as Dave's sister is about 32weeks with her second.  I have been crocheting some cute little baby things and not feeling broody at all, it has to be said.  I am grumpy enough with one child, so I hate to think what I'd be like with two!

I've been catching up on loads of TV series that I missed at the time.  I finally got around to watching S1 of Alias which I loved, despite the rather predictable ending.  I started watching S1 of Supernatural yesterday after watching most of S4 (or was it S5) on-demand and really enjoying it.  I must say that Sam has not improved with age, whereas Dean has.  I was also quite excited to discover that Jeffrey Dean Morgan plays their dad.  I love that guy!  Dave and I have also started watching Sanctuary via LoveFILM and we're trying to unearth the Battlestar Galactica miniseries so that I can start re-watching the whole thing; I dropped out mid S2 I think and I'd like to find out how the whole thing ends.

I have also been crafting little bits and bobs for around the house.  Neither Dave nor I are particularly keen on emptying rooms to have them painted, although we will have to at some point, so I have taken to making bits of wall art.  Of course, it would be even better if I could get them hung up :P  I may have to get busy with a hammer and nails... I am still waging an intermittent war on clutter but I suspect that I might need a total personality transplant to achieve a clutter-free existence.  I think I am just a messy, messy person.

Incidentally, in case anyone has spent two years worrying about whether I got Dave's cake mended and completed, yes, yes I did.  And it was awesome.
