Today I thought I would sort through all those home-school letters, invitations, club notices and what-not that have been piling up and giving me the evil eye from the corner of the kitchen for the last few weeks.
My first reaction was big !&*%@?! mistake, but now it is done, at least I know where and when I will be, pretty much every minute of the next 6 weeks!
I have filled in raffle stubs, paid for Christmas performance DVDs, mailed off all my completed blocks and swaps, and ordered fabric for another.
Take a look at my calendar, you don't need to be able to read my writing, but you can see the frequency of 'events'!...
Just bearing in mind, anything that appears in the kiddies' columns also requires parental involvement in the form of either driving to and fro', and/or costumes! The next couple of weeks are just as full, and this is just the family stuff that I know about at this stage. It doesn't include all the makery and things on my To Do list, nor Christmas shopping and all those preparations!!
So the arrival of a timely Stitch Tease block and accompanying card from my wonderful friend Di, told me what I should be doing...
... but for now, I am still resisting the urge to 'Panic and Freak Out'!
