Thankfully I have some truly remarkable people in my life who have come to my aid with flaming pitchforks to fend off my demons and lavender oil for my wounds. It was becoming more and more apparent to those around me that I was actually going insane. My mum took the first initiative by calling up my work and telling them to let me have the next day off work, and for my working hours to return to only being every second weekend. And boy did I have a fun day on my first weekend day off since like, August/September.
Anyhoo, Nitty's boyfriend from Canada leaves today, and I can only imagine the state my beautiful bestie will be in after being attached to his hip for the last 6 or 7 weeks. I'm gearing up the ice cream for the trip home from the airport (the trip that will only take about 3 minutes because I can literally walk to the airport from my house).
So, here's what's been happening.
I made a hillbilly top! I loves it. It is actually not completely finished but I don't care!
Actually on the same day this was taken, we went to Lincraft in Thomastown, which is actually in the process of closing down. First Spotlight Brunswick, now Lincraft Thomastown. It makes me a little fearful for the future of brick and mortar craft stores. Anyhoo, Nitty was furiously trying to finish a dress to wear to the zoo, and I was trying to get Keith interested in crafting. Seeing as they had been teaching me how to play Magic: the Gathering (yep the nerdtacular card game!) I suggested we made some Fimo tokens for cards that put creatures out onto the playing field. I figured this would be a lot better than scrambling around for paper clips and bread ties to use as counters.
Here is a little snap from Misty's Diner in Prahran. Nitty had a cherry thickshake :3
And a fun snap from the park when we were taking pictures of my top:
Nitty's aforementioned dress was finished and you can read about it here!
Working on another post, slowly getting back on my horse :)
