It’s been a bit of a stressful time and I have a tendency to not do the things I enjoy doing when I feel bad. Never really understood how that works for me. I know a load of people who tell me that when they’re stressed, they go run for a mile or take a bath with lots of foam and candles on the side. I always secretly suspected that they’re lying for the sake of it and, like me, load up on sugar, wine and bread with cheap cream cheese and gain 15 pounds overnight.
The fact is, I just need some sun. It’s helps my sanity. Last weekend the sun came out (if only for a day, but I’ll take what I can) so I grabbed my son, took the bus into town and found springy pillowcases to replace the ones I have now. And they were on discount, which always makes a girl happy.
My mother told me last week ‘something absolutely terrible’ had happened. I thought she burned her house down. It turned out she washed the woolen poncho I made her last year at 30 degrees. So now it’s more of a rug. I’m making a new one with my favourite alpacawool. I’m making this pattern by Elke Becker.
Bad hair, new lipgloss and a friend with her new phone over for lunch resulted in the worse pictures ever. But it was fun though.
Cleaned out my makeup stash and threw away all the old stuff *gross*.
And I figured if my new pillowcases have flowers on them, I might as well go get the real deal too so I bought a bunch. They make me smile, but don’t tell anyone ok?
Have any of you been changing things around the house now that spring is coming up?
