Colourful Day..

Today was my last day in work before the Easter break - yay!

So I am not sure why, but last night I needed to make a new pass lanyard!  Totally coveting the one Svetlana made the other day, I grabbed the remainder of my floral bundle and knocked this up during EastEnders...


It made me happy anyway!

But perhaps not as happy as when I got home from work and retrieved an unexpected parcel from the neighbour...


A couple of weeks ago I was scuppered by a rogue spool of Aurifil; a few breaks and random threads caught up mid-reel; but Mr V offered to replace it, and he also popped in some awesome extras after he kicked butt on the production line (his words not mine!).

And so there may be a huge pile a school uniforms and PE kits that need washing, plus the house needs a good clean and tidy, but it's Friday night and quite frankly I am happily ignoring it all and watching Masterchef xxx

  10. Lovely to know that customer service still exists!!!! Will the kids leave their h/w until the last day? Then you can leave washing the uniform until then too, and, oh dear, not be available for helping!!!
