Now, I’ve had the absolute luck and pleasure to do this before and as then, it felt like we’d been best of friends for 100 years!
We spent a brilliant afternoon in the company of the lady what used to blog at Life at No38
We got on famously and rather more amusing were our respective other halves who got on like a housemon fire and were worse for gossiping than us! Three hours passed by in what seemed
Like minutes and it totally made my Easter Holidays. I feel very blessed to have such good friends both online and in real life and it makes me feel all warm and cosy inside! I actually love these ladies and their families who I’ve been lucky enough to meet up with.
Remember of course you really shouldn’t meet up with strangers off the internet.
Other things I have done with my time off school is a bit of all the things I love, seeing friends and family, knitting, sewing, faffing about here and there. I’ve had my eyes tested, glasses ordered, paperwork done, clothes for the charity bag sorted out, sold my now too big for me boots on the bay of e, cooked and eaten some corkers of meals, been texting and messaging a couple of the girls from my SW class who have been finding it tough to stay on track , not sure I’m helping or hindering - we will find out on Tuesday- bet they’ll have lost and I will have had my first gain!!!
One make I will share is a shopping bag I made this week. I found some neutral material that’s been in my stash for aaaaaages. I looked on the selvedge and read the name Sanderson and the name and designer and the year 2005, so I googled it. Have I told you this before?! It feels
Like I have! Anyway someone on the bay of e is selling it for £21.99 a metre. I had paid £3.50 for two
Metres! I could have made
Myself £44, except I chopped into it to make the lining for my cheap tea towel shopping bag!
I helped my friend make some cushion covers for her new dining chairs using pillow cases she got From home bargains.
Today I had to buy some new knickers after admitting defeat in wearing up what I’ve got after, in the safety and privacy of my own bedroom, my old favourites completely fell down when I was getting dressed!!
Lots of love from
