I'm just going to come out and say it - I'm feeling really, really guilty. Really guilty and I don't like it. I haven't blogged in a week and it's constantly on my mind. One of the problems I have is on a Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday I usually find myself blogging after school but it is often getting dark by the time I get home which is no good for photographing things and then there is always a billion things that need doing and dinner needing cooking and children to sort out...and a terribly messy house..and ..well I say to myself 'I will blog tomorrow' ...but lots of tomorrows are going by and I haven't blogged. Then I start to feel pressured and panic. I feel I don't have anything interesting to blog about because all I seem to do is get up, go to school, come home, try to catch up with whatever I should have caught up with last week.
In an ideal world I would like to blog daily and probably could if sometimes it was just a photograph or two; but I fall into a trap thinking that I must write something long, sparkling and witty and some days I just don't do 'sparkling and witty' or have the time to think and write anything remotely interesting.
So please accept my apologies for being so tardy with my posts lately. It is something that I'll work on.
Meanwhile let's move onto more gorgeous things and talk doilies. On Friday and Saturday I did a 'charity shop run' in 2 towns (yes, even in the torrential rain on Saturday. That's passion for you!) and the doily angel must have been watching over me because I found some beauties. My favourites are the two in the photo above. I'm thinking that I will sew them together like they are in the picture and make a cushion to go on our bed with my new CK duvet cover which I will be buying for my birthday, on our trip to York on Friday. More about that this week.
Look at these little ones
Well, friends I must get my Christmas crochet out and get hooking as I still have a long way to go before I have finished. I have a very quiet house this afternoon as Lucy and Alice have gone to London to see Taylor Swift tonight. Taylor is Alice's 'Chris'. Our family measure love for a famous person by my love for Chris Martin who is the absolute top in my eyes. So Taylor Swift is Alice's Chris Martin for me...if you get my drift! Mmm..mad as hatters..perhaps I will just gloss over that one....all going well I should see you tomorrow after Art Club!
