Where has the year gone?

December already, so much to do, so little time.

The problem with December is that it feels cut in half. I have stuff that needs doing by the end of the month (a commission). I would like toget it to them by Christmas, which means that I've got to get it finished in the next week. I don't honestly know how realistic that is (time is a strange master), but I know I'll feel a sense of personal failure if it doesn't happen.

On top of that I've got a bit of Christmas knitting to get finished. A friend of mine wants some mini stockings in white and silver (2 done, 10 to go). They don't take long, but they are part of a list. In addition to that, she's newly in love (aaahhh!), so I'm also trying to knit some "lovers' mitts" (one glove each, and then a giant mitt that they can both wear and hold hands). It's for a bit of a gag, so not the end of the world, if it doesn't get done, but I'd rather it did!

On the plus side, however, another commission which was due to be with the magazine by 16th December was sent off last week, so felt good about that.

Not much writing getting done though!
