Yes friends February, though a short month is certainly proving to be an expensive one
We shall weather the storm though
But from here on in belts will need to be tightened slightly
The contents of our pantry cupboard ferreged through and whittled down
The vets bill is an extra expense plus garage costs for my car that was poorly
And I treated myself...though really I shouldn't have to the Accuquilt Go fabric cutter
However eldest is selling my big shot pro for me
Lovely machine, but practically impossible for me to carry up and down our cottage stairs...and even harder to store as though it would fit under the bed getting it out with such a small area free was a nightmare
Luckily the Go folds and so I shall actually be able to use it
I was lucky and even a friend who thought she had scored a bargain when she purchased hers couldn't believe the low price!
Said friend already has the cutting dies and is happy for me to borrow so yippee!
At last I will tackle some of my mini fabric mountain to make gifts and goodies
I'm also selling other bits and bobs that, well I no longer have a use for, so hopefully they will go to good homes and put a few shillings back in my purse!
Oh and yesterday I got my hair highlighted...
When the children were little and money wasn't just tight it was non existent I used to cut my own hair but hubby had his done professionally
For years now I've cut hubby's with clippers and have had mine cut but any colouring has been done at home
But yesterday I joined the lady brigade and was 'seen to'
I think I must have paid mates rates though because I know the salon owners and hubby is doing a job for her hubby and the cost wasn't as bad as I'd thought it could be
The result...a very 'raw' me with not a scrap of makeup
So Sheila not a picture of my new undies...
But a nearly 50 year old me
Still slightly chubby but no longer plain fat!!
Now today I already have a list prepared of tasks to get done
It's been a funny sort of week and I don't feel as though I've achieved much though I haven't been idle
This afternoon I see a learner and I need to write up some observation notes
Then next week it's working for our own business and getting bills out and once again the VAT done
Can't quite believe how quickly that comes around
And how did Friday get here again so soon?
Have a good day everyone
