I've spend the afternoon knitting. There was housework to be done. And bills to pay. And boxes from the attic that should have been put away. But unfortunately I had knitting to do, so none of that got done.
It's really nice to be able to say that with a righteous air. If I was knitting for myself or my girls, it would merely be self-indulgent. But because I was knitting a get-well gift I can get away with neglecting my work.
(Can I also claim the podcasts I was listening to as being educational, or is that pushing it too far?)
