What's Hot & What's Not

Lots happening in my life over the last week:

What’s Hot

Vintage sheet FQ giveaway. Five bundles of vintage sheet FQs on offer … one each to five lucky people. Drawn on Sunday 14 August. Everything you need to know is on this blog post.


Crafting. I’m working my way through some tags and knitting … and feeling pretty organised. I added a tag each to the FQ bundles for the giveaway and another I sent as part of a thank you to Ange for organising the FQ swap. I didn't get it done before the swap … and I was determined to send something. Thank you again Ange.

Vanilla slice. Both my kids are handy in the sweets/cakes/desserts department and Miss C made vanilla slices with passionfruit icing. It tastes as good as they look. Miss W and Miss C are both fantastic with custard.

Rest. I got the whole of Sunday to myself last Sunday. Of course I did a few chores … but I got to watch DVDs and knit and get a little general crafting done. I haven’t managed to get a day to myself for a while, and I got to sleep early and then rose early as a result. Such a great start to the week.

True Blood. I managed to see the first six episodes of season 3 of True Blood. I was warned it was slow to start up but I didn’t find that at all. There are lots of new characters and things happening … I think season 3 is better than season 2 which got really bogged down (and a little absurd) with the maenad plot. I can’t wait to find out what comes next.

What’s Not

Housework. This is absolutely not my priority and things are a little out of hand. I worked through the laundry over the weekend and I’m doing a little every night this week. A total pain in the proverbial … but I have to I guess.

Blog reading. I am so behind on my blog reading and commenting … I usually work really hard to stay up to date especially with commenting. There’s nothing nicer than reading comments on a blog post … even if it’s only something small. Time to learn how to better incorporate it into my day.

If you’re interested in playing I’d love to hear what’s been making your week.

i totally agree with the NOT blog reading... *SIGH* that is what happens when you forget you laptop lead and can't get hold of it for a week... I still have about 150 posts to read... :)
