My feet were tapping in a small happy dance late last night … I managed to put the final stitches into Coffee Menu, which is not bad going seeing as I didn’t start until Sunday (not Friday as I mentioned yesterday – it was Friday to me, as it was the last day of ‘my’ weekend so that was a bit of a Freudian slip haha). I really enjoyed stitching this one.
Next up will hopefully be Sapphire Star canvaswork by Laura J Perin, although I’m not sure it’s worth starting it yet, as the one thread I have on back order seems to be the main thread in both the outside border and the inside … I’ll make a decision later, though, as today is going to be spent tidying the place up and getting more Christmas decorations out to cheer up my little flat.
I got paid this week and just have enough for Mr Taxman if I don’t spend a single cent for the next fornight, but seeing as I have petrol to pay plus a couple of extra essentials for shopping (think female monthly items), he’s going to have to wait an extra fortnight now until next payday. At least I now know I will definitely be able to pay him then, which is a big weight off my shoulders. I’m also spending non-essential money tonight by going out to dinner … this has been planned for at least 3-4 months with girls from work, so I really want to go – I’ve turned down over 4 dinners and social occasions recently, including the big Christmas party next weekend, due to lack of money, but I think I really need this … I just have to choose something cheaper on the menu, and by driving I won’t be drinking – the night out will do me good, I think! 🙂
Thanks for all the positive comments about the ‘RAK Registry’ … if you like, for all those who comment they think it’s a good idea, I’ll pop an email out to you with all the questions, then if you want to have your preferences added you can email it all back to me and I’ll start loading them up next week some time.
Until the next time, enjoy your week 😀
