it’s been a very busy and shitty (literally) past couple of weeks, but true to my naturally sunshiney nature (haha) i’m only going to focus on the good stuff that has been occurring…
i fiiiiiinally got to play halo4 even though i couldn’t go at it for 16 hours straight due to my trigger finger also being my mouse finger, and i needed to save that for sewing & photo editing. also because i am old.
my awesome new custom made handbag arrived
(messenger bag by Handbags by Helen)
wasted spent an entire morning harvesting zips from my old denim sack, and arranging my panic kit(TM) into the very many brilliant internal pockets of my new bag.

armed with new handbag, i was ready to venture Outside. dosed up with rescue remedy, i was ready to face Husband’s work’s christmas party. tanked up on brandy & coke, i was sociable.
so f***ing sociable. YEAH!
at 8am all i could think about was the last time i gave up drinking forever. but luckily, right before i passed out, i’d written myself a To Do List with all of the important tasks. i’m very organised like that.
“make floor” was of particular importance due to the arrival of NEW CARPETS on monday morning.
actually, i don’t mean “new carpets”, just A CARPETS!!!
our first carpet. in 6 years. to mark the celebration-completion of Upstairs in the buildering scheme of things.
it was also
ironic good timing, as she’s been quite poorly this week so we were able to get down 3 flights of stairs and out into the garden for toilet emergencies relatively quickly.
frequently. throughout the night. every night.
and *reminding myself my glass is half full* being too tired to do any work meant i could lie on the couch all day knitting socks…
whilst snuggled up with my precious daughter (who is now feeling much better :D )
