The Big 4 - 0

Another milestone birthday came and went. It was a lovely relaxing weekend. I slept in and got breakfast in bed. The kids got me chocolates. I love my kids. :) Hubby bought me fabric (!) and a gift voucher for more fabric (on his head be it!) and this was after we'd moved my sewing desk to the other side of the lounge and found all the, ahem, Spotlight bags that had 'accidentally' fallen behind my desk. He didn't say a word as we moved it all. My desk is now beside the window so I have a lovely view. Better still, it's out of the traffic path so I'm not getting in the kids way and they don't get in mine when they're running in and out of the lounge. Most amazingly, it was my DH idea - the man who hates moving furniture who suggested it and helped move it all! (I'll be looking for the pod later, lol). We had thought of 'letting' the 2 girls share a room but after much discussion we decided it wasn't worth our sanity, so no sewing room study. Ah well, all too soon they'll be leaving home and I'll have a sewing room and then I'm sure I'll be wishing they were back home.

Happy Birthday Keely. I'm glad you had a good day. Sounds like you've got some sewing in your future. You've got a great new space, more fabric, and chocolate. What more do you need?

Happy Birthday Keely. Be careful what you wish for - kids growing up and leaving. Close your eyes for just a second and they will be gone! Don't they grow up so fast?

Happy birthday, and if it makes you feel any better, I don't have a sewing room either!
