… and that’s on my wish list lol.
I need to regiment myself a little more and post on here regularly but, as you all know, life has a little habit of getting in the way.
So far, over the past few days, I’ve found my passport, done some washing and washing up, designed and made the Man’s Utd Beanie (pattern posted in the Projects section – it’s a freebie so please do help yourselves), and even cooked a few meals.
Now I’m planning for two people’s special birthdays, one a 60th and one a 70th. I believe that birthdays are a very important time for people. Time to reflect on achievements (or lack of them, in my case) and use that reflection to plan for the future.
Normally I’m a go-with-the-flow kind of girl, but now I want to shape my own end game and achieve at least one small ambition of selling my craft works, not for huge profits or a killing, but to show the world I value myself as I value the items I make. More patterns to come soon …
Enough introspection! Some very happy news on a huge scale: Mel Brooks received a Lifetime Award at the BAFTAs last night … and he is 90 years old. It has been far too long a-comin’ because the man has brought great films and television shows to audiences across the world. My two favourite films of his are The Producers, the remake with Nathan Lane and Matthew Broderick, and To Be or Not To Be that he made with his late wife, Ann Bancroft. If you haven’t seen these, you’ve really missed something special.
Just one thing I would add … if you’re willing to stick with me through this journey of self-discovery, ignoring your boredom levels, please do get in touch via the Contacts form so that I may add you to the mailing list.
