domestic goddess

Today I have cleaned the house (not all of it but good effort!), done the ironing and baked cookies with the kids...they were supposed to be heart shaped but kind of grew a bit in the oven and blended together ever so slightly to form one giant cookie....we hacked them up and decorated them and they look fab now!

....and now I am making Jamie Oliver cauliflower cheese soup!
Just putting off the a load of work to do tonight.....

enough thanks

I've worked and worked and worked and had no life all week and I'm still doing the never ending garment design (women's wear range now arrgghh) and I'm so tired and the kids finished school today for half term and I've had a couple of glasses of rose and I really really can't face starting work now..... Or another glass of rose and bed??

nicking off work...

Feeling very guilty cos I haven't done any work tonight.
It's cos I'm just not enjoying what I'm doing...I feel like one of those people who moans a lot about their job...need to get it out of the way quickly!
Did these instead....
and then I did this to match last night's distraction.....

...but christmas in October is fine ha ha!

Not really!
Still hate those annoying people who start christmas early and show off about it ... but.....
I design my Christmas card every year and I normally print them out myself which is a right pain and takes forever - and I always leave it too late and end up wishing I hadn't bothered.
So this year I'm gonna get Moo to print them cos they did a super job of the stickers.
Figured I'd better not leave it till last minute so this week I'll be trying out ideas.... did some snowmen tonight...

shopping trip

I'm going to a Breast Cancer fundraiser tonight....dress code: pink.
So off I went today to buy something pink and lovely.
Well clearly pink is not this season's colour....I could've had no end of brown, black and sludge coloured clothes but apart from the odd pair of pj's the shops were devoid of pink! vest, pink nails and pink bra it is!

While I was there I saw loads of my designs, including these in Pumpkin Patch...

This is how they looked when I did them...
