Its my birthday today and I am treating myself to some me time – yesterday I indulged in a yarn day with a friend and it was good! Feeling the birthday blues today – maybe its PMT, but kids fighting with each other and husband out of town, are sort of making me feel a bit down. Birthday woes are boring though, so I will not succumb – instead I will make a cup of tea, get out my crochet, and listen to loud music – maybe even dance vigorously and crazily in the kitchen, by myself, to my loud music while wearing my nanna’s cardigan. What do you do when you have the blues?

I do have lots to catch up on and prepare for a week away from home next week – if anyone is planning on attending the Melbourne Art Fair – do come and say hi – I will sitting at the Art Monthly stall.
