Oh dear, Mrs HMM and I had a bit of a deal that we would embrace this blogging thing together. She's been way better than I and blogged on a regular basis. Alas, I've let the side down a little.
Well here goes again and perhaps I can be better at it than I have been.
Now Mondays and Tuesdays are great days for me. I get to "play" at home usually by myself. The teenagers are home for 2 weeks of school holidays, but they just amuse themselves. My routine for a Monday is to visit my 2 favourite Op shops first thing and any other stops I need to make at the post shop or supermarket while I'm out.
Today from the Op shop I got a lovely cream Jean Jones long cardigan and a nice black top for work which was half price. I love that you never know what treasures you may come upon, it's spoilt me for normal retail shopping!
When I got back I was all set to finish a small order for Baby Alive clothes. I sat down, turned on the sewing machine and the light bulb had gone. This meant a trip out to Spotlight, any excuse I hear Mrs HMM whispering. Of course I couldn't just get what I'd gone for and came home with a lovely selection of cotton to knit up some cardigans for my Blythe doll. Can't wait to make a start.

After "playing" until 3.00 it was time to get down to the practical (boring) chores that keep the home running- washing in, tidying and tea. At least if I can get some sewing done each day I feel I've achieved something that will last longer than the dishes LOL.
I am very privileged to have my very own studio (too grand)/craft room. I see all the lovely ladies on blogs I follow and their spaces are always organised and tidy. I feel bad as I don't tend to "love" my space and keep it tidy to appreciate it. So yesterday I tidied one of the bookcases in my room. I'm hoping I'll feel the love if I can keep my room tidy.
It's going to be a wee bit quiet tomorrow as my sister Mrs HMM is away all day on a road trip. We talk at least 2-3 times a day on the phone, more often if we have an idea to share. Maybe I'll get more done......... Safe travels family HMM.
