I tried hand quilting last year and it was surprisingly calming..definitely give that one a go!

I spend enough time in pyjamas for both of us....

I like your list. Staying in pi's all day, you need to do that! It's winter so you should do it soon!
I thought about taking a photo every day but I've already missed a day and it's only the 7th, sigh!
