The feedback on my echidna is very much appreciated. It’s amazing how many wonderful creatures are only in Australia – when I first started looking for XS charts to stitch, I was astounded at all the weird and wonderful critters out there in this huge land.
Well, today was a very challenging day in more ways than one … in sympathy with Isabelle with her migraine, I started to get one too – thankfully a few tablets knocked it on the head, and it didn’t worsen to a full-blown migraine. It did keep me off work, though, which gave me chance to eventually get quite a few things done … especially two chores I hadn’t been looking forward to. I managed to put Mum out of a job, and got about 4 weeks worth of ironing done – I absolutely detest ironing with a passion … and the only reason it got done tonight, is because I was running out of clothes for work! LOL. I was joking to Mum on the phone yesterday that it was time she came back over ‘cos I was running out of clothes … Mum adores ironing, and it’s definitely one thing that didn’t get passed down the gene pool!
The second onerous chore was to apply for debt consolidation – I really hate discussing finances etc, but found out I could apply online, and got the response back immediately. Turns out I have ‘preliminary’ approval for a personal loan, so I could pay a few things off and just have to make one payment – which will make things a LOT better for me financially … I’ll probably end up paying more in the long run, but at least it won’t be as crippling in the short term. I’ve had to ‘make do’ for so long now, it will be nice not to have the same constraints around my shoulders … but I shouldn’t be counting my chickens before they’re hatched, as I still haven’t go the ‘official’ approval yet. Fingers crossed I’ll find out in about two weeks time …
I was going to drag out an old UFO tonight, but it’s 9pm already, and I’m pretty wrecked, so will have an early night so I can try to keep this headache at bay. I think perhaps I may have overdone it with stitching that echidna yesterday hmmm.
