A better end to a rubbish week

My gorgeous friend Leah found Issue 1 of Mollie Makes for me here in NZ and now I have it right here! So excited - it's worth every bit of waiting. A newsagent in town is getting it in for me as well so I will have Issue 2 next week. Isn't it just the most lovely little magazine. I'm so inspired now.

It was just the pick me up I needed, to be honest it's not been a great couple of weeks. You know what it's like, sometimes it all gets a little too much. My car was smashed into (thankfully we weren't in it, but still it's not what you want to happen), my big girl got Chicken Pox for the third time (I've had it 3 times too - blame my genetics), and again my car (it mustn't have liked looking ugly and banged up) seized on me in the middle of town. Talk about expensive. Together with only having started a new job a few weeks ago it's all been a bit much. So this weekend while hubby has been working I'd had a lovely catch up with a couple of friends.

The hook has been getting a bit of a work out  - I'm starting to make some progress on my Granny Caravan Blanket finally. It's looking so bright and cheerful don't you think?  I desperately need more yarn though so I think I need to do a little on-line shopping. Do you think the credit card will thank me for it?? Maybe not. NZ readers - where do you buy your yarn? I like Skeinz. I'd prefer to buy local but we really have little choice.

I'm off to have a slightly earlier night now, hope you all have a lovely weekend

Glad you like the mag hon! I bet you can't wait for the next issue. Your blanket is looking amazing!!! Hey just whipped up a new slice recipe I will have to pass on to you. Delicious.

Some weeks are just like that. :/ Sorry to hear about your car. It's awful that some folks can just bang into it and not give it a second thought.

Glad to see you got the magazine to make things better. I've asked a friend who is in the States right to see if she can find any Mollie Makes mag for me. We don't get any good magazines in this country.

Crocheting is always good to calm you down after frazzled days. Hope you are having a good day. Tammy
