♥ But I digress - really I should be saying a big, huge, enormous thank you to you lovely people for really cheering me up when I was feeling a bit glum (I just love that word). You're all brilliant and I am sure that karma will handsomely repay you for your kind words. ♥
So, apart from loitering in car parks, I've managed to get in a bit of hooky time:
(actually, this photo was taken in the car park - if you look very closely, you can see a drain by my left thigh)
Can you also see my sparkly new Boden-sale-bargain scarf? Mr N was a bit rude and scoffed at the irony of me buying something from the johnnieB range. I think he was implying that it makes me mutton dressed as lamb, in some way, but I just put my fingers in my ears and said 'la la la - can't hear you' (then I flicked his ear, cos he really likes it when I do that...)
And this is the fruit of my crochet-related labours:
Hmmmm, on reflection, that's just asking for trouble putting that there - it's far too easy for grabbing little hands to reach. This is much better:
Ah *happy sigh* my high-up little crafty corner, how I love it so.
Before I go, and for the benefit of anyone who's reading this and feeling mildly disgusted with me for being involved in some sort of low-level hit and run incident, I'd like to make it clear that although my car was scratched to the metal (grrr) the Porsche didn't have a mark on it (well, not that I could make out in the semi-gloom anyway). x
PS - I've just remembered something that makes me just a little bit excited every time I remember it - I went wild today and bought a treat for me and Mr N. Do you want to know what it is? Eeeeeek - it's a quilted mattress topper!! For so many years I have longed for one of these babies and now, finally, I have one (well, I nearly have one - I can't actually pick it up until tomorrow and that's just killing me, but this time tomorrow I will be well and truly ensconced in my bed and that is thrilling). Oh lordy, that's just made me think of something else completely brilliant that's happening tomorrow - it's the return of Strictly Come Dancing.
Oh happy day. x
