An important birthday!
On Saturday it's my eldest's 13th. In the picture above she's cuddling her newborn brother, when she was aged four. And in the picture below she's ready for her very first day at school, posing with her younger sister.
I can't believe my eldest is going to be a teenager... where did that time go. Both the photos above seem like they were taken recently in my head. I love her to bits, and I hope her birthday is a fabulous day for her.
Hence today I've been rushing around like a mad thing. She's invited 8 of her friends to film at the cinema then wants them to come back for pizza. There's nothing like people coming over to get the house tidied at double quick speed! But the weak point is the decorating. Now the landing is done, but the hall is still adorned with the yucky yellow embossed wallpaper:
I am desperately trying to get it all stripped off and tidier before Saturday. These things are never easy!
Meanwhile, I've ordered some yummy Christmas fabric.
And finally finished a pressie for a friend for her daughter.
I really ought to make one for eldest's birthday... a midnight job tonight, I guess. As ever, there just aren't enough hours in the day.
I've taken more stock into the local shop, and she was thrilled. She's made some more sales of the things I've taken in, and is loving whatever I can make, so I'm enjoying that. It is strange though to drive past and see my stuff in her window. Nice, but strange.
