My life is about colour. I love yellow and orange and red, and now green. I love colour and light. And sometimes I realise how important those things are. Sometimes one has to choose adding a bit of colour and a touch of light to otherwise gloomy days spent amongst boxes and tape and a few more boxes to keep going.
What can I say on a bank holiday Monday? That all Mondays should be bank holidays! Yay LMJ and her superb ideas, yay! Now back to reality, please. My cunning plan of packing frantically worked and today I could enjoy a slow day, listening to the rain outside while sipping chamomile tea and cutting fabric. I caught up on a few episodes of the Big Bang Theory (pure laughing heaven!) and watched the two behind the scenes specials on Channel 4 (I love you, 4oD!). I had a bit more tea and avidly read Sew Mama Sew!'s tutorials on cushions with a zipper and piping (beautifully written tutorials, I tell you). I looked up baby boy clothes patterns for my new cousin-nephew; oh, yes, it's a boy! I learned how to make sushi with M.; oh my, is it delicious! And I had tea, chamomile tea (shaken not stirred)!
:: a boyfriend who helps me choose the photos for the blog and discusses what I could write about.
:: sewing. knowing how to sew. wanting to sew more.
:: friends and knowing we can count on them.
:: a good Easter.
:: homemade sushi! thanks M.! new ♥
:: accepting it's ok to have more 'things' than most people. it's ok. my books and my fabrics and my yarn are a part of who I am, and it's just fine!
:: reading (currently The Friday Night Knitting Club, soon to be made into a film; go knitting, go!)
:: homemade bread. warm. with butter melting on top. yep!
:: LMJ's readers. and their comments. they make me smile. you make me smile :)
How's your Monday keeping? Hope you're having a less wet day, but just as slow paced and lovely!
