My computer is working again, but if the last 48hrs or so are anything to go by, it could be quite a short-lived experience!

So here's a quickie...

The kids went to the synthetic ice rink this morning and were the only ones on the first session - so a good time was had by all.

After that was a painful (literally and metaphorically) shopping trip to get the girls some birthday outfits; they went from wanting the same but different to simply the same in the end, unprompted; so they are now happy, and I never want to see the Next changing room ever again!

On the sewing front, I have been working on my Midnight At The Oasis quilt, and all things being equal I'll get some photos in the next couple of days to show you.

I will attempt to reply to some emails and comments later, but that will be in the hands of the temperamental Mac Gods; so until next time xxx


  1. good day had by all. We used to have (with our twins)
    want the same but different
    want the same
    both want the same thing, but want each wants his brother to have something different

  2. Dont envy you clothes shopping with twin girls.... bet the skating was fun tho!

  3. WTH is a synthetic ice rink?! The Next changing room for me is my idea of hell, never mind for anyone else o.O

    1. Oh man - shopping is bad enough, but with two who can't figure out if they want the same or different. I'm pretty sure that qualifies you for sainthood.

  4. I've never heard of a synthetic rink either Katy ;) Reminds me, I've not split my face open for a few months now, I need to get back enrolled... I didn't know you were making the Midnight at the Oasis quilt! I am thinking of starting a the Georgetown pattern but the lack of seam allowances on the curves is putting me off a bit because drawing them out is getting boring!

  5. Hope they got something suitable in the end! Good luck with the computer gods, a sacrifice perhaps?
