DH's birthday...not doing much, finishing the cake.  Cold, icky and don't want to do much.

Found out the perfume I've worn since it came out is discontinued because I need some.  I have to be careful because of DH's Gulf War Syndrome, so I can't just go back to wearing what I did before...whole bother of changing (I mean, I probably could quit wearing it, but that isn't going to happen in this lifetime).  Which of no surprise I am weird about fragrance like everything else.  And no, I don't over wear perfume and leave a cloud of pink stink behind me.  There is actually a skill in not killing people with your perfume.

@Kwaaked  I’m sure you know but when trying perfume make sure you try it on your skin as your own oils etc affect the way a scent develops. There is one perfume I LOVE on my mum and friend but it smells like cat wee on my skin :(

So I have an appointment with a personal shopper this week with a list of the fragrances I want to try, and I am sure there will be a few she chooses since the notes of the fragrance is out of style and no one is carrying them currently in any designer, expensive or cheap.   I expect I'll get a few she chooses hoisted on me due to age difference (she's in her 20s and I am not) and from the same brand I am changing from because as the company said "This one is similar...just change to that." (It's not.)

My daughter did tell me she needs unicorn jammies for her school play.  The note said "Pajamas" she added the unicorn...luckily I had just bought her some flannel for Xmas jammies with them on it.  As she told me when she said it "You can make anything..."  luckily, so I can this time!

I am so sorry to hear this catlar :( if he is still in this state I am surprised they are letting him out as he must be terribly dehydrated and undernourished.

Fingers and toes crossed @Manuela.

Bright and cold here this morning, plumber arrived at 7.45 and is still here now! No water in village has stymied work on our new heating system.

Both had better sleep last night, and ate toast for supper. Still running to the loo all the time, good job we had put up buckets of water from the swimming pool as soon as we heard the water would be off. However, we can't wash or shower. God bless deodorant!

@Catllar - your ongoing tummy issues couldn't be linked to your water supply could it? Could the  village/your
 supply have been contaminated somehow?

Morning! I had a glorious nights sleep and feel nice and cosy. Today I have no plans other than crafting and relaxing. I may start online Christmas shopping but we’ll see.

I’m going to finish my Scandi stuffed gnome called Sven (sewing quarter). I will make Ingrid next weekend. When he’s finished I’ll post a pic.

@Francesca Hubby works shifts and with this type of shift transfer he would get in and go straight to bed for 3 hours max. Then he will keep busy all day and aim to go to bed around 10 or 11.

 On another board I'm part of we do an Ornament swap (using any form of fabric, thread or wool). This little chappy is on his way to Australia tomorrow. I hope he doesn't melt  :P

That is a fascinating article and I had no idea that’s how it happened. I was 5 when this happened and I remember seeing images of it on tv but no idea what it meant until years later.

I’ve had look through the large number of swaps my US forum does and other ones include a table runner swap and a pin cushion swap - this would be good for lightsiders as well!

They also do a ‘virtual quilt along weekend’ once a month fri-mon (could be sew along on here to include more people) which is basically just a chatting thread where people talk about the project they are currently doing and post updates and pics etc as the weekend goes on.

Fabric orientation? I honestly can’t see anything from the pics....

I think once joined down the middle with white sashing it will look are you planning on quilting it? I find that the hardest decision to make! I still can’t decide what to do for a simple runner 😳


Depending on timing with my holiday, yes

Probably not as I’m not up to date on this years ones. But never say never!




No - I like to know what I am making!

I’m excited as I currently do many of these on my US forum (they do most of them monthly) but I can’t do it often as postage is so prohibitive.

I am so pleased! I would have said to take it before food if I had known he was doing differently. It slows the system down ready to receive food. Hopefully a week or so of being very careful with plain foods and he will start to heal and feel better  <3
