Starting Something New

I remember when the kids dad and I bought our old house years ago people saying to me "New house, New baby".  Well that ain't never gonna happen now.  Got lotsa kids already.  So new house, new what?

I am starting the City and Guilds Patchwork and Quilting Certificate Level 3.  I'm doing this via distance learning with Creative Stitch Suffolk.  Nervous and excited, excited and nervous.  The main worry for me is the design element as although I am creative I am no artist.  Still if you don't try, you'll never know, so here I am taking the plunge.

Doin' The Happy Dance

I'm Going

Woo Hoo.  After being so jealous of those who did go this year, I have saved and saved and bought myself one of these.  I'm so excited.  Erm, ... I havn't yet told anyone who will be looking after Rory.   I have not been anywhere without the kids for about eight or maybe nine years so I am probably due a couple of days.  Anyway, I will cross that bridge when I come to it.  

My tumble dryer also burnt out two fuses last night when trying to dry the last of the school clothes, which is a bit of a pain in the proverbial.  So I'm going back to Chelmsford now to use the kid's dad's one.
