Happy new month to you and huge, big fat thank yous for all your sweet comments, I think those positive vibes have done their work as I have a slight spring in my step today. My little spot in the world has, wait for it, sunshine this morning and I have not one but two bloggy dates in the diary.
Yesterday I drove the boy and some of his class mates to a curling centre for their school field trip. Watching a whole bunch of twelve year olds having fun out on the ice, followed by a tasty buffet lunch is definitely a good way to spend a few hours. And volunteering is most certainly the way to go for meeting other mums and teachers.
Another reason for the spring is that the first shipment of our contents has arrived. Now, the husband was far more organised than me back in November, as he gave instructions to have his wardrobe contents put on first delivery. Unfortunately all I could think about was my sewing room so I have ten massive boxes of fabrics, nine boxes of books (mostly crafting but some cookery) and glass beads, and a dilemma as to where it's all going to go. Oh, and no clothes! No matter, I now have a sewing machine, my overlocker and knitting needles so, once the transformer is installed, I'm good to go and clothes making here I come. Woopeee!
By the way, what do you think of my new (old) tea cups? I almost forgot to mention I've discovered a promising thrift shop ..
