Brrrrrrrrr, we are back in the freezer again, and we have wind as well. No, no, not the personal kind, the blizzard with snow variety! It is blo n'gale as they say up here.
Holed up in the kitchen again. Actually I have even moved the sewing machine into the kitchen as it is warmer than using it in the diningroom. Don't even ask about HQ, I've frozen out of there since before Christmas.
Thank goodness my meeting with Jim at the Caurnie Soaperie was yesterday. Big excitement, I'm adding his wonderful all-natural cold process soap to my new range of goodies. Yesterday was a meeting day to discuss shapes and sizes, didn't know soap could be so complex.
So today I am holed up in the kitchen sorting out my soap packaging, now resizing the paper and measuring ribbons. The sewing machine sits on the table (we are eating by the fire in the livingroom in this weather) and is ready for another batch of cushion covers. Suddenly it is all coming together. I'm so impatient to have the new goodies out there and available but it has to be right.
As ever working from the kitchen brings its own temptations – food. At least in HQ I have to make the effort to come back to the house to make coffee etc, there is movement involved. Here I am too close to it all, I am under threat of 'sewing bum'. Add to that no running due to the frozen weather. Get the picture, I know, I know, not a pretty sight.
Hibernation, I can see the attraction. Okay so you would miss Christmas etc, but think of the money you'd save. Yes hibernation is looking better by the minute. Doze off in October and wake up in April all bright and lively and slim and gorgeous and, and, and,………….
I think I am suffering from snow madness!
