first snow

first snow
Started snowing last night and it’s still snowing. Not sure it’ll stay for very long, but still it’s a hint of winter.

Today I have been a mother for 10 years. She’s growing up so fast. And suddenly I feel so old… ;)

the evils of cleaning

So today I went out to try and find good things for the Halloween party that’s coming up this weekend. I was looking for a dress. Nothing I’d wear on a normal day, but it would fit perfectly now. And the whole time I ran from store to store I could have just slapped myself.

My mum gave me a dress just like that. And I figured I’d never wear it and donated it to Myrorna. (Second hand boutique owned by the Salvation Army.) Now if I had only been my usual slow self that dress would still have been in my flat and wouldn’t have been running from store to store trying to find something just like it.

I think I might have solved it now. It’ll be a compromise, but it’ll do. And the day was a success since I found something perfect to use when I make M’s costume. Now I just have to get crafty with the sewing machine.

There will be shopping going on today. I need to pick up a few things for our costumes for Halloween. I can’t reveal too much here but I’m sure there will be photos after the party. And we will look fabulous! ;)
