no snow

Apparently everyone in the country had snow yesterday. Except us. Which is good. Because we don't bloody want it. We want sunshine and daffodils and little lambs leaping. There is a time for snow. The time is Christmas. It's too late now, thanks.

j a n u a r y STILL

The forecast says snow this week.
I'm disregarding that.
I'd like 27 degrees and sunny please.
STILL bloody January! How? Just how?

fabric and friends

Yay, I have a new fabric collection coming out with the lovely peeps at Fabric and Friends.
It's called Springtime and it'll be available in....the spring! Clever!
I might have to dust the old sewing machine down.

jet lag?

After a fabulous weekend in Belfast with the girls, this week has been even more January than ever. Maybe it's the lack of sleep catching up on me. Maybe it's my rather heavy workload. Maybe it's the sub zero temperatures. Maybe it's the jet lag caused by the 40 minute flight and travelling between zero time zones. Or maybe it's just the realisation that I'm back to picking up crap and sorting out the lives of three other people. Whatever. It's been a bloody long-arsed week.
It does seem to be getting eversoslightlyalittlebit less dark though.
So swings and roundabouts.

fat cat

This is my FaffingAboutInFrontOfTheTelly pic from last night. ↴

I come alive at about 9pm and don't want to go to bed.
But in the current perma-dark situation I am suffering from vitamin D deficiency and excessive melatonin production, resulting in a reduced ability to get my arse out of bed on a morning.
Bloody buggering January 😫

Just kidding.
It's really not.
In fact it might snow this week.

dotty day out

Had a fab day out in London yesterday with the Dotty Wrens, Lizzie, Wend and Sue.
Wish we all lived near each other, we could get a real life studio together. We'd never do any work but we'd have a right laugh.

This isn't us. It's just drawings from my train journey...

ski trip

The eldest has gone to the French Alps with her boyfriend and his parents. It is her first skiing holiday. So far she has phoned me in an 'emergency' to say she couldn't open her suitcase, she's discovered that she has taken one ski glove and one man's mountain biking glove, she's rolled halfway down an Alp and had to be rescued by a French man who recovered her ski poles and she's dropped her poles off the ski lift and lost them. 
She's having the time of her life.
I'm not sure how much fun the boyfriend's parents are having 😬
