Thank you for your kind birthday wishes! I’m sorry if I made anyone feel old! Just my lack of patience freaking out over another candle on the cake – not that anyone bothers to make me a cake now. I do sort of wish Dave had bought me flowers though. I’d probably worry that he was having an affair if he started being romantic like that though! He did buy me something I wanted though – and by ‘buy’ I mean we have a joint account and I can access his money so I told him I was buying it. Yeah, obviously romance isn’t exactly flowing on my side either. But he didn’t say no (his eyes bugged out of his head slightly at the price though) so I am now the proud owner of…..
an overlocker (or for you Americans a serger)!! The money from his mothers house is so close to being gone (this didn’t help it!) so I thought I would squeeze it in before we become poor again. I have wanted one for ages and I know I am going to get a lot of use out of it making clothes. I’m tired of buying made in China clothes with no hem allowance or that falls apart within a week. I’ve thrifted a ton of fabric lately, knits and linens and fleeces, that I am dying to make into….so many things! The frosts have arrived with a vengeance this past week (guess what my least favourite season is?) so the first project is probably going to be flannel pyjama pants! Mmmmmm cozy jammies.
