Finally, finally, I have agreement to reduce my hours, from February I am finishing at 2pm every day. It's only a reduction of 7 hours a week, but I hope it will help and I hope I can manage on the reduced money.
Thank you Margie & RQ, I'm not specifically unwell, just a bit meh. Helen, I did nothing but granny squares for years and have only ventured onto other patterns thanks to Attic24 and then youtube.
This morning the kitchen table is covered in drinking straws, glue sticks, paper scraps and glitter. This can mean only one thing, one of the DGD is visiting, so, much crafting is happening. I'm dropping my L&M at work at 8 when I do I going to sneak into the staff room and 'borrow' a book. We have a selection of books left by the Book People, I've ordered a copy of one of the books on bag making, but it won't be delivered until Wednesday week. DGD can't wait that long, so I will borrow the staff room copy this morning and return it when I collect my L&M this afternoon.
After I drop my L&M at work I'm collecting DD and giving her a lift to work and then DGD and I will shop at the bakers and butcher, then home to make a bag. I will teach her to use my sewing machine as I did her brother last week.
I need to speak to my other DD as well to arrange for the other DGC to visit soon, they too are itching to learn to sew.
