Yes, (air fist punch) we got rain! And lots of it. And my favourite kind, overnight rain. The garden doesn't smell at all now ... well, OK just a tiny bit, but not like yesterday. When the timing of these household maintenance chores turns out so right, you can feel so undeservedly pleased with yourself at your own wisdom in hindsight...
Today I was a soccer Mum. And popped into Spotlight to pick up a few bits and bobs to complete some top secret projects I've been working on... got some family birthdays coming thick and fast in the next month. Not to mention my own selfish winter sewing plans, well, since I started on the Wardrobe Refashion pledge to buy no new clothes, ipso facto I now have to make them. This is no hardship since I love sewing, but I feel like I have about a million plans in my head, and am realistically only capable of producing a limited number of items each week...
All I can say is it's a good thing my family is happy with simply cooked food with no fancy trimmings...
Speaking of good plain fare, the grey cardigan I'm wearing today is so old but so comfy, it's like an old warm cuddly friend now. Comfort dressing, the sartorial version of scrambled eggs on toast for dinner. And whenever I wear this little mirrored pony necklace it takes me right back to when I got it, on my girls' weekend away with my friends A and D.
