In my defence...

Tuesday, 2 March 2010
I'm really tired. And I was bored at work. And I had about 10 mins to fill till I could leave. And it was a lovely sunny day. So I surfed a bit. I did avoid the stitching shops but I had a quick look at some of the quilting shops and I happened to go to Thread Bear (fab shop, fantastic service, huge variety of stock - go check them out!).

And whilst there I thought I'd see what they had in that was new and I saw this lovely charm pack. And because it was sunny and spring has sprung and my defences were weak plus they're lovely little girl colours I had to buy it.

And of course then I googled Moda's Spring Fever and I found this lovely quilt kit. I'd like to say that no, I didn't buy the kit - for a start I'm not buying from the US at the moment as I had two import duty bills recently which I don't mind paying, it's the £8 on top that the Post Office charge that bugs me, and also it seems to be taking at least twice as long as usual for anything to get here from the US and I'm running on limited time!

Anyway, I thought maybe I'd see if there was a jelly roll around and sure enough, a quick google found them at Nerybeth Crafts (I've removed the link because they appear to be out of stock now!) so of course I just had to get one as a charm pack on it's own won't make a particularly big quilt now will it?

So I'm now excitedly waiting for my stash! I've been really good up until now but I couldn't resist these and also I got my Health in Pregnancy grant through last week and decided that having a small stash purchase will help my health no end LOL.

Talking of pregnancy I'm now 34 weeks and at the point where I want it over and done with. Sleep is almost non-existent, I'm averaging 3 - 6 hrs a night with a lot of waking up. It's my dumb restless leg syndrome which has now spread to my arms as well. I knew it was going to get worse, it did when I was pregnant with Lia, but it's just unbearable some nights and worse when I'm tired so it's a bit of a viscious circle. Still, I don't have any other symptoms and everything else is going well so I'm just grinning and bearing it and counting down the days.

I finish work at the end of next week and then it'll hopefully be a bit easier as I can nap during the day if I need to

I love your justification. I wonder if I could convince my boss to buy me stash to help reduce my stress levels...

Hope it arrives quickly

I think the word you are looking for is "siesta" - so much trendier than "nap" - LOL! If you need any advice, I have a doctorate in them :) Siestas, not words!
And well done on exercising your clicky finger...it worked well :)
