I hope that you haven't been feeling neglected. As soon as September hit, my calendar suddenly became a mass of black ink. I've only snatched the odd minute online here and there.
My son started school last week - and now his little sister has started preschool. Both kids went happily into their new classrooms without so much as a backwards glance. Couldn't they at least look a little upset to leave me?? As for me, I had thought that I might be skipping and dancing out the door and off down the street (I don't get much time away from the little darlings), but I was surprisingly nervous about my son's first day. I wasn't one of the mums - or the one dad - that was crying, though. I'm guessing that they have regular babysitters...
My son has 2 football (soccer) practices a week. Full uniform and football boots (cleats). Meanwhile these 5 year olds struggle to remember which goal they are aiming for. Tch. In my youth, the goals were just a pair of jumpers (sweaters) thrown on the grass and everyone would be wearing their falling apart trainers (sneakers). And I had to walk to school in the snow...
I haven't been making much. We're re-doing the old bathroom right now. Fun. So, all I've got for you is a needle case.
Yep, I've finally made a new home for all my needles that were usually to be found swimming around the bottom of my 'sewing stuff' box, while their original foil keeper deteriorated. I didn't want anything too twee, so these wrap-around notebooks were just the inspiration I needed.
Oh well, I had better get going. Hopefully I'll be catching up on my e-mails in the next couple of days. I have had a couple of people mention that I don't have my e-mail address posted. Well, that was in case you turned out to be a bunch of nutters. You've been very nice to me so far, though, so I've set up an e-mail account for the blog, that should link to my usual one - in theory at least. It's over there on the left, or on my profile (nb. I can't contact you back regarding comments if your blogger profile isn't activated or if you don't have your e-mail posted on your profile).
Translation of the day:
I struggled to come up with an equivalent for this one, so this is what an online search came up with:
UK English: Twee = affectedly or excessively dainty, delicate, cute, or quaint / overly precious or nice / nauseatingly cute or precious / kitsch
These all sound a little too harsh, in my opinion. I just meant that I like simple and functional a lot of the time - things that aren't too fussy.
Take care all.
