Well it is
And I will admit
that I am some what over it.
The weather is not something that usually
but today felt glum.
I am longing for
But to brighten up the gloom
of a grey wet day
look what arrived in the post
My very first pair of

I spent the morning out doing things like getting petrol in my car, good idea really as it is going up again in price over night, not that I knew that this morning. I went to a couple of op shops but found nothing that tickled my fancy and ended up in Spotlight looking for a pattern to make a Winter coat. I had forgotten how bloody expensive patterns were. After going through every single pattern book I only found one that was remotely what I was looking for. Guess I will still be tweaking it to how I want it to look. At least I have something to start with.
I don't want double breasted, as it doesn't really work on breasts my size! And the collar is going to be reduced or removed, still to be decided, and it may be made even longer yet. Plan is to use some of the old blankets I have been collecting.
How cute is my Russian Doll sewing kit?
To cute to not buy, that is how cute, and it is happily living in my handbag. OMG I have a lot of crap in my handbag, useful crap, but a lot all the same. Mainly 'just in case' crap, you know like a hanky, a pen......and now a cute as hell sewing kit! Maybe I should tip my bag upside down on the floor and show you all.
Essentials only of course.
whats in your handbag??
So going backwards now, last night when I went to bed I found that the dogs had already made themselves quite comfortable, thanks very much and left me my side of the bed only. I love my dogs but I would rather have TOF back on the other side of the bed. I am so over him being away and he is so over being away. Guess we both have to just suck it up and hang in there for another couple of weeks. Oh and I told him about the trailer. I asked if he was excited about it like me and he said, beyond excited!!!
Good piss taker is TOF!!
Sticking with the reverse order of things, yesterday Jak installed the steps I got from the dump for $10 to the side of the deck. So handy having a builder in training living on site. Sheba was very cautious about going down them, so funny to watch. Now what else can I get the lad to do for me???
Got to be some spin off from giving him life!!
