Repairing relationships

Before I got my overlocker (thanks mum!), I had heard that they could be grumpy and persnickety beasties. So when it misbehaved on me the last time I used it, and I couldn’t get it to behave, no matter how many needles I changed, or how many times I re-threaded it.

So it went into time out. For more than six months.

Fast forward to my birthday, Jane took me out for lunch, and I found some really awesome fabric for making pyjama pants for Squishy. Today, Mark took Inigo to his parents place for the whole day, so I’ve been able to get a few things done, bit pacing myself so I don’t puke, and I even got the overlocker out, faced my fears, and…

The marvellous Kate rang tonight and offered us tickets to see ” Jerry Springer the Opera “. Of course, we didn’t have any plans for tomorrow that couldn’t be broken, and we decided to fob off the kid on my parents (who are going to Parkes for 6 weeks on Wednesday, so clearly they need more time with the kid!). Sally reviewed it last week, and I thought “sounds great, what a pity we can’t afford to go”. Now I just have to decide what to wear. What could possibly be appropriate?
