At last! The temperature dipped today so I could at last light the fire - yippee! I can't tell you how many pics I had to take to get a decent one, I need some serious camera training!
All I need now is a good bit of telly and I won't need to move for the evening! "What Not to Wear" is on but Lisa Butcher freaks me out slightly, don't know why, she's no doubt a lovely person!
Had a great day today, went shopping (sorry Ian) with Andrea at a local fashion & gift fair. There were some lovely stalls with handmade bits and pieces so we came home with a couple of choice items including this glorious ribbon.
We're off "up North" to see family this weekend, I think a trip to Liverpool is on the cards. Can't wait to see everybody again, it's hard living away from family, but at least we can't get sick of the sight of one another! My sister is unexpectedly expecting her third child in March so it'll be good to see how the bump is coming along. This household can't wait for the new arrival and it means I can have all the joy of a new baby without the poo and sleepless night! I'll be sewing like mad once the baby arrives, I've got so many ideas.
On the subject of sewing, can anyone recommend an easy skirt pattern for complete beginners? I'd like to have a go but I am totally useless when it comes to reading instructions of any kind, my brain goes into a sort of meltdown and gives up so I need a very simple one to start with. Any suggestions?
Hope you all have a great weekend, see you next week..............
