Gifts

I've put all my own knitting aside for a while and I'm now putting all my knitting effort to making Christmas gifts. I'm almost finished with my sister's socks, they are the grey ones on the right.

I also have a job that I love (or actually two jobs as I'm also a fitness instructor) and I'm really happy with my life. Of course there are things I would have different but so does everyone, right? (I could always use some extra money.. Haha)
What I now look for is a bit more structured everyday life. I feel like I have much more to give than I do now. I should start to take better care of myself and set healthier goals considering my eating and excercise habits. Also now that I have my very first own home, I would like to finally decorate it the way I want (as I don't have to care about landlords and their constat demand for white walls and cheap kitchen closet doors). I also want to give more …
