On the plus side

There is a plus side of having no job - no office Christmas party! Horray!

Bah humbug.

Dressmaking Fail

This week I've been making a dress to wear to Ben's birthday bash on Friday night, but I failed. It's too small, and tight, and makes me look like a sausage.

I followed the 'instructions' in a book called 'Yeah! I Made It Myself', but it all went wrong because the book only shows a little hand-drawn picture with the measurements, so I had to make my own pattern and there was too much guess work involved. Lesson learned = use shop bought patterns.

This is the lovely, but thankfully cheap, Ikea material I wasted trying to make it:

I got flowers today!

They were from the bank, admittedly, to apologise for overcharging me, but they paid the money back and, aw, shucks, they shouldn't have.

Very nice, but they're still a bad bank ;)
