We’ve had a bit of a batch of Stuff happen to us of late – you know how these things go in groups. I was hoping for “in threes” but I think we have surpassed that. We had that car accident, then a mouse ate through the dishwasher drain pipe (which we don’t want to replace until we’re really sure it won’t happen again). Next, I got a man in to look at a couple of issues with our oven and it was so bad that he took it away as being “electrically unsafe” (so that’s three)… yesterday one of my teeth broke completely in half through the middle. So that’s four. I had to go to the dentist this morning and an hour and a half later, with lots of apologies from her for causing me pain and a really big bill, I still have my tooth, or at least what’s left of it, and a second and ongoing appointment.
So, to make myself feel better, I did what I pretty much have always done when I feel the need for a lift, I op-shopped. To turn the story into a circle before I get to the end, I was just thinking that one of the good things about my blurry sewing drive for A Craft Affair is that at least I may finally decrease the pile of fabrics that are slowly overtaking the study. So what did I do, filled a basket at the op-shop with more fabrics.
