Saturday Nights aren't what they used to be....

I find myself on a Saturday afternoon childless and husbandless! Georgia has caught an early train this morning to go to her first proper concert, and Abby is sleeping over at a friend's. Ian is watching the local football, and then accompanying my brother-in-law on the 2 hour drive to pick up the girls from said concert.

On these occassions, I get a little bit anxious about how best to spend my time....don't want to waste those precious moments of solitude. Let's see...I have been meaning to get around to having a play on my sewing machine...ok

Insert much laughter all comes flooding back - I never have been a wizz with the sewing machine - I manage to sew both sides of the slip together, ha ha!

Deep breath...ok, it's ok - just unpick some stitches...try again.

Ok, not perfect, but not altogether awful.

So, the candles are lit, the wine is chilled, and the movie is ready to go....bliss.

Hope you are all having a wonderful Saturday night x
