Well, it's here, 2009, and on Tuesday, it's back to normal routine for everyone. Lucy is so disappointed to be going back to school on her 7th birthday, but it can't be helped I'm afraid, as I have work to do! Anyway, she has a 'High School Musical' party to look forward to next Saturday. I have to admit I very nearly wasn't so ready and raring to go. I did something very daft yesterday, if you are squeamish at all, do not read on...!
We have been visiting family in the Lake District for a couple of days, and Luke has slept on a fold out bed. I thought I'd be helpful and fold it away, but had my hands in totally the wrong place, and before I knew it, all my fingers were trapped in the hinges, both hands, both sides of the bed!. Luckily, after quite a bit of shouting for help, Mr LK came to my rescue. The damage is no where near as bad as it could have been, my fingers are a little squished, bruised and swollen, but they are ok, I can still sew, yippee!
PS, I am rather enjoying reading this book (although, my copy seems to have a different cover). It's full of advice from lots of successful crafters, really inspirational.
