hurrah - Life is good

It will take more than a spot of the runs to dampen my spirits today, let me tell you!

Things just seem good. My weekend was very cathartic in lots of ways (thanks to Lisa for her messages) and despite having dodgy bowels and a bad night's sleep due to the cat leaping all over me at 4.30am, life seems sparkling.

First of all I had a very creative weekend, designing lots of new quilts and stuff. Then I sold 10 packs of knicker discs in one go, plus over 60 cards. Then I had a nice chat with Eleanor, and also went to watch my Nephew Tom play in a rugby match in Edinburgh.

We did a spot of shopping in Edinburgh and I was more-than-is-strictly-necessary pleased with the purchase of a see though plastic box in which to store all my reels of cotton. Sometimes it's the little things that cheer you up!

Last night I spent watching The Shield on DVD, whilst sewing huge shoulder pads into my new choir uniform. What a surreal combination: hard hitting LA cop show/gold sparkly poncho. My first concert is tomorrow night so I'll try and get a photo of me in my finery.

Today I discussed our new office design with my boss. We have got a tricky site - a thin triangular plot wedged between the railway and the road, with difficult levels. This kind of challenge always throws up much more imaginative designs. The great thing about being in such a small young company is that we all collaborate really well, and it is nice to be involved in shaping the future of the practice, especially when it comes to designing the space I may be spending many years working in.

Yup, for a Monday, life is good!

Glad to hear you're feeling upbeat, even with the trots! Well done on the sales, it's such a great feeling isn't it!
Photos will most definitely be required of the spangley poncho with shoulder pads, good luck for tomorrow night.

Glad you're excited!!! It's funny how the silliest things can cheer us up..a new box for your cotton reels is a great investment I say!!! I get all giddy when I clear out a cupboard!! I bought a new sewing machine on Thursday to make some new curtains - so I'm as giddy as a kipper!!! My last one gave up the ghost after 15 years (I once made Christian the loveliest jazzy shirt - ask him!!!) so off I went to john Lewis and allowed the lady to give me a full demonstration - fabulous!!! then whacked it on my switch card!!!!
