Dreaming of another craft weekend because August is too far away. Maybe June?
I just wrote a grumpy whiny boring post about headaches and Lincraft (closing down) and tinned soup and cancelled spinning group.
And then, luckily for you, I deleted it and uploaded some photos instead. We will focus on the shiny happy we will.
Soccer season has begun again (wait, is that good?) and the younger two and the husband are all playing on Saturdays and Sundays, leaving the fifteen year old and I to our own devices. This weekend that included his violin concert which went brilliantly and he was the absolute star of the show. I even managed to not cry which was a first. There are two 3 minute videos of his performance over on facebook, but flickr wouldn't let me upload them there (so therefore also not here). He's tinny and flat-sounding anyway on the video (which he most certainly was not in real life) so it's probably good that most of you can't hear them. I mused about uploading them to YouTube but he put his foot down. His friends might see them you know, and Bach's violin concerto in A minor (1st movement) would spoil his rock n roll image. On facebook, only mum's middle aged friends can see. Heh.
On another note, some of you might have noticed over there on my sidebar a Red Bubble banner. I've uploaded a few of my photos there and they are available for purchase as greeting cards. I am ridiculously excited about this, although I have no idea whether anyone will buy them. Apart from me, that is. And I will certainly be making a couple of 2010 calendars for sale later in the year - some private family ones, one of a selection of my better photographs for public consumption, and maybeperhapspossibly a collaborative one with a couple of fellow bloggers. Exciting.
Also in the exciting department, only one week on, I am 70% done on my shawl. Unbelievable. This is about the stage when I usually abandon a project so stand by ...
ps. If anyone has a favourite photo here on the blog or on my flickr stream that they would like to see offered as a card, please let me know and I can include it in the Red Bubble collection.
