I was planning to do something else for today, but when my son informed me last night that today was International Suit Up Day, well, how could I not? Barney is our family's favourite character from How I Met Your Mother, and his sayings are oft quoted around our house, er and not just by me.
So I hope everybody else is suitable suited up for a business-like day, and no, I don't think that includes tracksuits, people. C'mon. Even if you don't wear a suit on a daily basis, and I certainly don't, even if it's months or perhaps years since you "suited up", go and dig up that dusty old thing from its hanger, release it from its dry cleaner's bag and pop it on. Just for the day, and just for fun!
My suit is looking a little dated now, and I'm thinking I need to tailor a replacement, but this project will have to go to the end of a very long list of projects I have mapped out...
As for my photo, well I'm supposed to be climbing the corporate... oh, I'm sure you get it. A metaphor pictorialised.
Just a few other updates;
My youngest son is home, safe and sound; and it is so nice to have him back with us and everything feels normal again with us all back in the house, I feel so much more relaxed when all my chicks are back in the nest...
And thankyou so much for your lovely comments yesterday for my giveaway. A few have commented and don't want to go into the draw for the goodies; that's totally cool too, and I understand that lots of people have a full pattern collection already and I'm just thrilled that you took the time to comment. It sounds cheesy but each and every comment gives me such a buzz and I look forward to reading my comments with huge excitement everyday... truly.
The giveaway is just something to mark the day, and my way of saying thanks to you for reading.
