At the beginning of the year I signed up for a Birthday Swap on Ravelry. We were divided up into groups of 5 and throughout the year I have been sending birthday gifts to my four swap partners. Tomorrow it is my turn to receive gifts!

One parcel has already arrived and I have been showing great restraint in not opening it before my birthday.

I know there is already another parcel at the post office but because they do not open on Saturdays I was unable to pick it up. And I won't be able to do so tomorrow either - talk about deferred gratification. I have to go to the city all day tomorrow for boring business reasons. But in the evening friends are taking us out to a surprise venue for dinner to celebrate my birthday. I am really looking forward to that. And on Tuesday I will be able to pick up my parcel and extend my birthday. I rather like the idea.

I'm also involved with a Christmas swap on Ravelry and I have started knitting my partners gift.

It's taking a tad longer than I had anticipated so I'm going to have to work at it in order to get it done on time.
