Absent again, but I have at last got some useful things done. We've had a child-free weekend (hooray!), although the return is imminent as Mr R&B has gone to collect the boys today. Friday I stated making a pair of trousers for myself (well, a muslin at least) and with minor adjustments, they will actually fit (more on those another time). I also had to go out to sort some toddler group paperwork (yawn), but had a quick browse in the charity shops and found some things I'd sort of been looking for (again, that's for another post). Friday night we went to Mr R&Bs' annual professional association dinner (he is chair this year, so was pretty much running the show). A high percentage of boring old f**ts as expected, but a rare chance to dress up and eat some food not cooked by my own hands! Saturday was spent doing more sewing, plus shopping and today I've been sorting out our bedroom as it's looked like an explosion in a jumble sale for the last two weeks.
I came to the realisation the other week that I really do have far more clothes than I could probably wear in a month of Sundays, so some will be finding new homes hopefully. As vintage fairs here are (bizarrely), few and far between and/or beyond my scope, I'll be having a blog sale/giveaway. Some will be free to a good home (just P&P), and others I'll be selling.
I've also got plans to do a car boot sale soon as there's quite a lot of baby things (amongst other stuff) that the boys have grown out of. Mixed feelings about this, but it's got to be done.
Here's Sleeper from 1996 to play you out. Seriously, 17 years ago?!
