Thank you all for the birthday wishes! I had a nice day, although it didn't get off to the best of starts. I've been having trouble sleeping recently and didn't get to sleep until 3am so I overslept - by the time I woke up I had 35 minutes to get the kids fed and off to school!! It was a bit hectic, as you might imagine. I had to open my pressies while they wolfed their breakfast. As I mentioned I got a new digital camera which I'm still learning my way around (hence the crappy photo above - it takes brilliant pics when I get it right! lol Luddism rides again!)but it has 7.2 megapixels and a 10x zoom so it's a big step up from my old one, and the kit for Thea Gouverneur 'St Petersburg', and money which I spent on books. Pete took the day off and we went out to a TexMex place for lunch. In the evening, Pete cooked dinner and the kids washed up - a good day all round!
I believe I have solved the problem of The Night - I've signed up for a UFO RR! It sounds like an ideal solution - I get a (hopefully) big chunk of her done by other people, and I get to work on some other exciting-sounding projects without having to stitch the whole thing....sounds like a win/win situation to me!
