** Today I am tired.
Still feeling the jetlag.
And a bit cranky.
** Just ask my kids - they know!
** Mind you, they are pretty cranky themselves...
That's what happens when they decide that 1am equals morning and then won't go back to sleep for another 3 hours.
** I also started a diet today.
That's no doubt another reason I'm cranky.
But it's completely necessary... I got on the scales this morning to discover that I'm officially heavier than when I was 9 months pregnant with Hannah.
Hmmm.....! Not good!
Just the kick in the pants I needed to stop my see-food-and-eat-it diet.
** I also had to spend over $500 at the dentist while I was in NZ getting my teeth fixed up
- that's another pretty good wake up call to stop eating so much crap!
It had been 4 years since I'd last been though.
Tut tut - that'll teach me!
But paying out so much money on stupid fillings = another reason to be cranky.
** That means an end to my diet coke addiction as well.
I'm pretty sure that wasn't helping the teeth thing and it certainly wasn't helping the overall health thing so goodbye daily diet coke treat and caffeine fix :(
Yes, yet more reason to be cranky.
** I also found out last night that Neil doesn't get back from working away until the 21st March.
So.not.impressed with that news!
That will make it over 5 weeks being separated this stint.
I can't even bring myself to think about it.
I'm sure it goes without saying that this little nugget of info did not help ease my c.r.a.n.k.y.
** On the plus side I had some fabulous mail while I was away!!
That always cheers me up!...
** Firstly I received 4 more blocks for my Reverse Starburst Quilt. But I'll show you those tomorrow in my WIP report (otherwise I'll have nothing to show you! ;) )
** Secondly I received a fabulous parcel of Heather Ross goodness from another WA quilter friend that I know through Facebook. She was so generous to me and purchased this from her local quilt store for me. Thanks so much Waverlee!!
Ooops now that I've seen the photo I realise that I also included the unicorn which was not from Waverlee. That was actually a swap from Laura, another friend from the same quilt group, who was desperate to get her hands on some HR goldfish.
She offered me her soul but I graciously let her off with a unicorn ;)
And Yes friend who begins with S... before you go complaining at me again about hogging all the Heather Ross in the world (pfft) you may have some of this if you don't have particular ones of them (with the exception of the unicorn). Just let me know which prints you are missing and I will send you a care parcel.
** Thirdly I received this gorgeous Laurie Wishrun print from Kym over at Fabric Fascination...
Kym advertised on Totally Tutorials (which by the way I just noticed has my scrappy quilted pouch in the blog header - how cool is that!) about a month ago for people who would like to receive free fabric. The (small) catch was that we just had to make something and release a tutorial for whatever we made.
Umm.... let me think about that...
OK THEN! :) :)
Since I'm all for free fabric, I applied and luckily got chosen.
So watch this space for a tutorial made from this gorgeous fabric.
** Suggestions for tutorials are welcome!
(in other words I currently have no clue what I'm going to actually make... ;) )
** All this wonderful fabric but no energy to sew.
I have officially not sewn in 2 weeks.
Hopefully tomorrow that will change because I'm pretty sure that's another key to my cranky.
** Ok, I will stop being a moaner now.
** Time to go fall asleep watching some TV and have a night off in the hopes that my cranky pants get to go in the wash tomorrow and I get to put on my ray-of-sunshine pants instead!
