It's evening, so my head has been in 19th century Cornwall for the most part.
No fabric, patterns or clothing purchases. I spent the potential fabric purchase money on ordering death certificates.
Things which have finished: drum lessons, league practices and games and a reduction in kung fu attendance. The difference in smoothness of a week is noticeable already, and it is only Tuesday. There is a five week gap between league finishing and swimming lessons starting. I'm enjoying it. This does remind me that I need to sort out a costume for the ballet competitions this holidays though.
Ouch ouch ouch on the job cuts in provincial New Zealand already this week.
Recent developments in my garden: first iceland poppy (orange) out. Lovage has re-emerged. Feverfew and white sage taking off. One bay tree appears to be flowering. It's never done that before. There is a flowerhead emerging from the Chatham Island Forget Me Not and one from an aquilegia - firsts!
