Me too @annieeg @Tamnymore . The librarian had a word with my dad. - she didn't think Asimov was suitable for a 10 year old. Dad was highly amused and suggested she encourage me!

That's a really clever design. Did you design it 'in the hoop'? I could do with something similar. Good idea to keep the cables tidy on the middle layer.

DD2  took the children to a nativity in their village church. There were real sheep, a donkey and fabulous costumes. SIL put this on our family WhatsApp:
During a particularly poignant moment of quiet, when the narrator said “…so Mary decided to give birth to the baby in the stable” Kit shouted out “well that’s a silly idea”!!
He's almost 3, at least he was paying attention.

Did she make you loons and a peasant top @Ouryve ?

Thanks @charley @Helen M yes, that's the problem. I tried repeatedly to tell the printer about the new router but repeatedly failed. Annoyingly the NFC doesn't work with my new phone either though it does with DD's phone. We now have 2 cables joined which have to be plugged in to DH's laptop to make the wireless printer do its job. Sometime I should try again but I rarely need to print nowadays.

That's really pretty.

@Iminei there used to be a repair cafe round here, one of the ladies at sewing club takes her machine. I'm sure there would be someone who could help set up your laptop. When you find someone, please send them to me as my wireless printer isn't any more.

I wasn't going to bother watching the Toy Run this year, but a WhatsApp from DD1 showing her location so we could wave to her had us get out the bicycles & frantically pedal down to the big roundabout. Didn't spot DGS with his dad but I think I saw DD with her best friend on pillion wearing my bike gear & Santa suit. It's tricky when most people are taller than me, crowds 6 deep & most of the riders are dressed as Santa. There were plenty of snowmen & Rudolphs too. And a carrot. There was no run last year, so a big build up on Facebook to encourage donations. The 'biker vicar' who started the tradition sadly died in April so a lot of people were displaying his photo on their windshields. This is a major event, roads closed, diversions signposted. The last one I rode in was 4 years ago & there were over 2000 bikes then. The route is only a  couple of miles & ends at a Barnardo's school. This year the new Harley Davidson dealership was taking in donations and there was an online collection to avoid the usual bucket collection.

I'm glad it's not just my stuff that's shrunk @Tamnymore . @Bodgeitandscarper I made a black jumbo cord midi skirt with big black buttons but that would have been towards the end of the 70s I think. @realale that was daring. I was riding a motorbike from age 16 so skirts weren't practical. Plus I'd spent years fighting the school uniform 'girls can't wear trousers' rule. I don't think I owned a skirt (apart from the dreaded school skirt) or dress until much later.
