Are you also having a very wet weekend?? Well it's hot chocolates & movies on here today.
I can't believe i'm relaxed enough to take a break from sewing (read: clean the house from top to bottom, cook & bake) when . . . a) i've been so unwell due to that silly finger; b) i have orders & stock to make for Shop & Handmade Market; c) i have a motherload of submissions for Handmade Living & d) my husband is away on what seems an endless trip to the desert, i'm the answer to every car/ toilet/ child & dog issue which arises. I mean, a week on anti biotics, the children's toilet stopped flushing, the car wouldn't start & our dog has been barking!! But my finger's better now (thanks for your comments, all so kind, yes an infection under the nail, took me down, hard!!) I'm also listening to my body & what's it's screaming out is "slow down". I have a lot of responsibilities with home, children & business, without any back up, even so, i created all of this . . . i can slow it down as well.
It's also this time of the quarter where Handmade Market is a week away - on Saturday 5th June (June i know, already??) so my well timed deliveries of fabric, knitting needles, hair clips & buttons start pouring in. Yes, there will be a GIVEAWAY shortly!! I just know i won't be able to sew as much as i normally would for the market, but with the back up of the Shop Handmade (open 6 days) the pressure to perform on market day has been raised a little. So this market i'm more 'handmade craft enabler' than handmade by Posie.
After the Morning Tea (they raised over $5K!!) I took myself out for lunch & to the War Memorial. I just had a bout of missing my husband, thinking about losing my mother-in-law to breast cancer, my finger hurt, i missed my girls on school camp, i didn't want to go home & just found out this new Army exhibit opened . . . so i bravely went in. Going to a War Memorial is NOT an easy task when your husband is at war, i can assure you!!
This was a nice way to end the exhibit, with an image of Sabi, the explosives dog who was MIA for over a year, now back on duty.
So this week it's serious work for the Handmade Market, working at Shop every day, meetings with Handmade Living & that's right, parenting, feeding, loving 4 primary schoolers. Have lovely weeks everyone & stay tuned for the GIVEAWAY on Thursday, love Posie
