Rebecca I hope this does not make you crave chocolate too much! LOL! Must admit I was craving it big style yesterday and Abi had asked me to get her a bar of Galaxy to give to her friend for her birthday! How I managed not to eat it I will never know!
I am having a hard time debating what to keep on my wish list and what to take off! I can't possibly buy all those and stitch them. For one I don't have the wall space and for another some stitching supplies are getting rather expensive. I know that it's lovely to stitch with silks but let's face it the Caron and Thread Gatherer silks are way out of a lot of people's leagues now. I have been looking at Vicki Clayton silks and have chosen a couple of hers to use on two of the charts I want to stitch in the not too distant future and I think I'll continue to sub if I can. I certainly don't want to give my hobby up and would go back to using DMC on everything if I had to and that is getting expensive here in the UK. I pay 60p a skein for it at the local arts and crafts shop. It amazes me when the stuff is made in France and it's cheaper for me to buy it from the States than it is here. I had found somewhere that did it much cheaper in the UK but he has closed his business which is a real shame.
I ended up not getting both pairs of glasses! They both needed altering in the arms so I waited patiently while the lady went off to that and when she came back she looked rather embarrassed. It turned out that she'd broken one of the arms off my normal reading glasses and they didn't have another pair of those frames in stock so that they could replace it! So I have to wait about four days for them to get more in, which will mean another trip to Beverley. It's not that far but when you don't want to go for anything else plus petrol being the price it is.
I am feeling a bit shaky and achey today. So typical when I actually feel quite upbeat for a change! LOL! I am three weeks overdue and don't know what to do about it. Do I go the doctors or do I just get on with it. At my age they are probably just going to assume I'm menopausal!
