** Pffft.... what was I JUST saying yesterday about looking after myself?
** For the last 2 or so weeks I have been trying to be very kind to myself & do all the right things:
I've gone on a more healthy diet, gotten rid of my diet coke addiction, mostly gone off sugar, and been trying to rest/sleep a more decent amount.
** Then today rolls around...
here I sit at 10.37pm having just finished working, munching on the Easter eggs I bought for the kids (I KNEW it was a bad idea to buy them this early... now you know why the basket in my Easter basket tutorial was devoid of chocolate - I was too scared I'd eat it all), and I had Hungry Jacks (blerck) for lunch because it was all that was near at hand and we were an hour away from home.
** Oh... and then there's the diet coke I had earlier too.
I was doing so well too!!
** Well - if I have a headache tomorrow then that's proof that diet coke is toxic to my body. Because after living with an almost constant headache for the past 6 months, I have not had a single headache since I gave up diet coke. It was an experiment that needed to be done, despite the fact that I miss it because it's the one thing other than water that I drink.
I'm thinking that the absent constant headache is worth giving it up for though, but we shall see what tomorrow brings!
** On the plus side I have spent a fortune on new fabric in the last 2 days.
Hang on... is spending a fortune considered a plus side?
Haha. if your name is Neil and you are married to me then I'm thinking the answer is NOT.
But otherwise new fabric has got to be considered good right?
I was pretty restrained though because most of it already has a home to go to. But a few things might have just snuck in because they were on sale & I liked them :)
** I got also an email from Pink Castle Fabrics yesterday to say she'd sent me a parcel.
I was like "Huh... surely I'd remember going on etsy today?!"... then I remembered. My Flea Market Fancy pre-order. Eeeeek!
YAY that must mean it's on it's way.
** I'll have to try and take some photos of my most recent dress makes to show you because in the last 24 hours I've made some stunning ones, even if I do say so myself.
I can't wait to write up the patterns for them - I just know you are going to love them!!
Yes Rhonda, I will try and hurry. Promise :)
** That about brings me to the end of my random rambling tidbits for today.
No photo even today...
** Oh that's right... I forgot to tell you - here is one I took of Hannah last week. She has just started ballet and I just think she looks a.d.o.r.a.b.l.e in her new uniform!! Don't you think?
She struck the pose without any instruction. So Hannah! She was born to do ballet most people that meet her reckon. But time will tell if that has any ring of truth to it. All I know is that she loves doing it - and that's the main thing to me...
Here she is a bit more natural.
** K... off to bed.
