I do like Day In The Life. I like to read about the minutiae of people’s lives and compare them to my own. I think this time, I would most like to be Alice. It’s always nice to see new people taking part and old faces who haven’t done it in a while picking it back up. It gives me great pleasure to see people running with an idea I concocted on a bored day at work.
In other news, I went to Rothesay last week. A post on that to follow. And yesterday, my sister in stitchery Julie Jackson’s interview with me was posted on Craft magazine’s website. This was very exciting. Julie is the brains and crafty brawn behind Subversive Cross Stitch. You might think we would be rivals, but actually we’ve become good pals over email and see ourselves as complementing each other nicely rather than competing. This is one of the nicest things about the craft community.
This week I have orders to get out, once work is out the way. And then it’s a long weekend at the subtitling coal face. But then it’s off to Manchester for night with my brother, to see Sebadoh. They are one of my favourite bands. I am staying at the swanky Hilton thanks to a mega-cheap deal through lastminute.com. Hurrah!
Then I’m off to London for work, then back and off to Fuerteventura for a week of relaxing in the sunshine and then off to Dusseldorf to see the family Black, with Jo. And then it’s Renegade Craft Fair in London. Phew! I am surely racking up the air miles.
