The lovely Fi is having a 'what you wearing wednesday' thingy. So each week you'll get to see what scratty clothes I hang about the house in. Hmm. I should maybe start dressing up a bit, especially when you all you can see here are holes...holes in my slipers and a big hole in my jeans, and getting bigger every time I kneel down. I should fix them, but I can't be bothered. Because I'm lazy. Join in - what are you wearing? Ooh, that sounds a bit filthy dirty.
Look look look what Mr Posty brought me today... it's a present from me to me! Hoorah. (Those are the best kinds, you get what you want that way)
Lucy was having a giveaway, but I couldn't wait to see if I won (she still hasn't done the draw, not that I want any of you to go and visit, because I still want to win), I asked her (everso nicely) if she'd make me a picture of my very own. She did, and this is it. Isn't it amazing?! The detail is awesome, it's only a diddy little picture, fits perfectly into an Ikea Ribba frame, and it's still so detailed. The flower pots are my favourite bit. Or maybe the windows, actually I really love the clouds. Oh, dammit, I don't know - it's all too brilliant, I love every single tiny stitch.
And soon she's opening on etsy shop. I expect to be very broke very shortly.
Look at it close up - such beautiful little stitches....
But the goodness doesn't stop there, oh no....
I won a giveaway from Kathleen's blog (I did give her a sob story about ginger being ginger, therefore he'll get picked on when he starts school, and needing this robin or he would cry forever, it seems to have worked, I'll try it more often...). When I opened the parcel, not ONE robin but a BABY too! And awesome goodness...look (are you looking? Good)
Some long coveted ribbon, some liberty prints (there are 2, the other one is hiding, and I didn't already have these either - yay!), and some soft and lovely cashmere. Today I am spoiled rotten. Thank you, I like it, lots. I am thinking I might snaffle both robins and keep them for myself. Hmm. But then again, Miss G got some very bad news on Monday (it took her until this morning to tell me). The stand-in Religious Studies teacher told the class that a certain someone (we won't say his name in case there are smalls reading) is a myth created by Coca Cola. The shock!!! - I am furious, for 2 reasons...firstly, how dare she come out with that. Kids grow up way too quick these days, let them hold on to some innocence for a while longer, and secondly get your bleeding facts straight. He was a Turkish bishop. He was a real person, real and genuine, and Christian too, so perfectly relevant in RS. I phoned school, I am still seething. Let's look at my giveaway prize again to calm down a bit....
Phew, that's better.
