Wow, so it's been 5 months since I posted! This is also an indication that it's been 5 months since I did any real sewing, cos hemming trousers and repairs don't count IMO!
Life has pretty much run me over with a steamroller this year. Who'd have thought that a fuller than fulltime post-grad study year, and a family of kids requiring a taxi-driver would be a lot to handle? Well, ok, everyone but me obviously. I seem to have an entirely unfounded sense of optimism of what I can achieve at times. Still, reality always has a way of making itself known. I'm pretty sure I've managed to become acquainted every flu and cold virus circulating this year!
I've discovered this year that stress can make people do funny things - like wearing skirts regularly when they've always been a jeans-type; wearing make-up and even painting my nails!!! Athough that one has a reasonable explanation in that it stops me chewing my nails. Oh, and then there's the crying on my supervisor's shoulder, tho I'm assured that's quite standard.
Sooo, even with my new attempts to regain some balance in my life by attending the fortnightly girly days with friends, I'll hopefully be finished writing by the end of November, which will mean I can start tackling the long list of sewing I've been planning. There may even be a few skirts on there... Tho I think a bit of excavating of the sewing desk may be in order first. :(
And a blurry shot of my new nail colour...
