Good morning!  Welcome to Tuesday.  It looks OK out there for now and the forecast is for sun, which would be lovely after yesterday's afternoon rain.  It was a four o'clock start tday which is better.  Still too early but better.

I am becoming a Lady Wot Lunches this week.  Yesterday I was out at a friends (and it was lovely), today I am out with a friend and Thursday I am out at a friends.  Talk about living it up!  Yesterday's little jaunt was to see a friend who used to be my SEN cover at school and who have a little 6 month old as well as her three year old.  The older child was at nursery but her baby was awake and ready to talk.  What a sweetheart!  Thanks for a lovely time, C.

Today I'm taking a friend out to lunch.  I haven't seen her (except on Facebook) for ages, so we will have a lot to catch up on.

I went to Hobbycraft yesterday and got some bits and bobs that I needed.  It's all been reorganised since last I went so I simply HAD to look all round.  Because of the sewing machine, I went to look at the fabrics and saw some lovely owl print fabric which will make a perfect fun skirt for me for school this summer.  I asked for three metres (only needed two but I liked the fabric) and there was about another third of a metre left on the roll which she threw in for nothing.  Excellent!  I'm not going to make it up yet as I want to practise on some cheap fabric first.

When I got back from C's, S and M had just arrived so we all had a cuppa coffee together.

All in all, a very pleasant day.  I hope yours was as nice in its own way.


  1. Sounds like you are having great fun with your new toy. I very seldom wear skirts as I tend to live in jeans.

  2. I probably would if I was your size! (meant in a positive way and I've just realised it could have a different meaning!) Skirts are nice and cool in the summer heat though!

  3. Yes, it was great to see you and have a cuppa. :o)

    Your owl fabric is such fun and absolutely delightful - you did really well to find that. :o)

    Have a lovely day and see you later. :o)

  4. :-) I do love Hobbycraft, even though it is expensive!
