Still the slacker

Perhaps I should be careful what I say in the first few days of the year.....as I seemed to have slipped into a malaise which I'm all too happy to languish in. I've been alternating between tea and cake, while watching a pile of foreign movies.

It didn't help that the computer had been running at a snail's pace for the last fortnight, since we somehow chewed up our broadband allowance too quickly. Someone (the geezer) had been spending too much time on youtube. Blechh!

There has been no crafting of any kind, unless you call fabric fondling a kind of "crafting". No sewing. No painting. No sketching, and up till now no inclination to blog. I just thought to retrieve myself from the comfy couch and let you all know I'm still here.

And I'll be back....don't you worry. I reckon all that intense gift-making leading up to christmas has just tired me a wee bit. Can I count some of those as part of January's quota? Hmmm.

Anyhow, I've already got some more summer clothing planned for the bub and possibly something for me, too. They're just waiting to be cut up and whizzed through.

Okay! I must run! Mostly Martha is waiting. Tootles!

I agree- lets count the things we all rushed to make last month as part of this month's quota and I think you just invented a new craft - fabric fondling - perhaps we could get it turned into an Olympic Sport!

Take some time to recharge your batteries. I’m always getting a boost out of January. I need to do something to keep warm you know! I guess I can compare your January with our July, then My batteries will be low! Enjoy the bubb, the sun and the gheezer!
