The weather round here is frightful
The kids are not being delightful
Hubby has to be at work at 5am (I’ve given up on rhyming now, that’s too yucky to rhyme. He’s tucked up in bed watching Sherlock).
And I don’t care cos:
- I’m finally getting to try out typing a blog post on my shiny new laptop, which is soooo much easier than trying to use the touchscreen on the tablet.
- I’m in the middle of installing the printer software on my shiny new printer…
- which means I should soon be able to print out my shiny new moss skirt pattern
- and I may even get to cut into my shiny new fabric that I accidently picked up at a motorway break in IKEA
I have abandoned the pile, including hubby’s unfinished waisitcoat toile (let alone the real thing) and put aside all thoughts of making myself some trousers (which is what I really need, I only have 3 pairs that fit and the favourite has just developed a gash in the knee and the other two I can’t wear with my boots) and decided that what I really need to combat the windy and rainy January weather and the tired children is a red polka dot mini skirt.
So basically a shameless copy of Jennifer’s in the same fabric, just a different colourway, maybe a little longer (as the very mini ness of it does scare me slightly) and in my case definitely worn with leggings.
I have no idea why, I don’t wear skirts, let alone mini’s, but hey.
Now to see if I can get the printer to work……
Must take the opportunity to publicly thank long suffering sewing widow husband for shiny new things.
