may 15

As if May is over! As if it's actually June tomorrow! Can someone please tell the weather. Cos the weather still thinks it's March. My flip flops have not even seen the light of day this year. And I've still got the heating on full blast. 

Oh...and I did 2 May patterns cos I couldn't decide which one to go with. But they're both a bit samey so no worries.

another busy week

This week I managed to squish in several meals out, a bank holiday day off, a couple of girly shopping trips with my sis and our big girls, mucho juggling of work for 3 PeopleWithUrgentDeadlines - AND a total clearout and empty-age of my studio WHICH HAS NOW BEEN KNOCKED DOWN!! 
Oh yes people! I have finally got round to it. The "garden room" that previous owners Betty and Geoff built [badly] in 1985 has been demolished! I'm having a new one built in it's place. ASAP. Unfortunately....and unsurprisingly... the foundations are crap so we basically have to start again. I am trying to maintain a dignified air of patience...
Meanwhile I'm bloody exhausted and glad it's the weekend! Bottoms up everyone x

another flipping bank holiday

You wait all year for a bank holiday then 3 come along all at once.
They are doing nothing to help my deadlines I can tell you!
I suppose I could've just ignored this one and pretended it was a normal day today. But that would be just stupid wouldn't it.
I'm gonna be working like a lunatic trying to catch up this week now though. Luckily Motormouth is galavanting round Bournemouth all week... so I can crack on without interruption!

happy camper

My baby is going camping tomorrow. For a whole week. TWO-HUNDRED-AND-SEVENTY-MILES-AWAY!
He's off to Bournemouth with Scouts. Like great big Scouts. Some of them are 15! He's only a little 10.
I'm normally happy to see the back of him for a while. Bit of peace and quiet and all that. But a whole week! At the other side of the country! With the big boys!
I'm sooo gonna miss my little man...

I'm in denial about the amount of work I've agreed to do next week. I should really be making a start on it now but there's something about the weekend that makes it ok to hide from reality. 
So I did these instead.... 
I love having loads of commissions. But I love just being able to please myself more!

hello baby

I went on a very special road trip yesterday to meet the latest addition to the Dotty Wren gang. Wendy had baby Nancy in March and she's proper gorgeous!
Sue came too but Lizzie couldn't make it so she just Facetimed us all instead. (She's so 21st century)
I got all broody and asked the other half if we could have another. He said we could practice.
Ha! He had the snip 10 years ago!
Welcome to the gang baby Noodle x
