So much to do, so little time

My, have I been busy. I have been studying my ass off for a marketing exam and working on a Financial Management assignment all at the same time. Needless to say, I am totally knackered. Covered in zits and addicted to coffee and cookies - my staple study diet. The assignment was THE ASSIGNMENT FROM HELL. What a load of bollocks. It didn't relate to our coursework at all and in my opinion, was more of a MBA level. Not BA (Hons). It was on Marks and Spencers UK and was so intense that I was in tears several times. Apparently I wasn't alone. I heard after that several students never handed it in and others went through the same rollercoaster ride of emotions. Man, all I can say is that is crap deluxe!
Anyway, so didn't even have a minute to relax and knit something. But I did manage to finish the a little stripey baby cardigan. It is the Child Pinwheel Sweater. Get it here or here on Ravelry. It's gorgeous. I just have to send it on. I did become an auntie again! Whoohoo! Little Megan was taken out last week Friday at 7 in the morning and was a picture of good health ( also a little mini me of my brother). So I have a bit of knitting to do for her.

Otherwise I trying to recover from all the studying. College starts again next week so we aren't even allowed a break. In the mean time, I received some lovely yarn that I ordered a while ago - Lamb's Pride in Kiwi, Roasted Coffee and Lemon Drop. Now the yellow isn't something that I would ordinarily buy but I was hoping to knit my mother the Tudora as their work uniform is part yellow (she works for JCB). She hates the colours. Can't say that I am really fond of them either but hey...
Anyway, she will be receiving a yellow Tudora.

Well, husband dearest have been keeping me busy this weekend. My first off weekend and I am being dragged off everywhere. No time to sit still and knit for a bit. Tonight I have to put forth a whole traditional South African dinner for an Italian friend. Really don't feel like it. Oh well...off I go...
