By that I mean today has not been one of the best for my mood.
For a start, the weather has changed and it has been cool, grey and drizzly on and off all day. I eventually switched on the heating as I was starting to feel shivery.
The parcel delivery saga was also starting to make me feel stressed. Absurd, I know, to get stressed over a delivery of nuts and fruits. Anyway, after several more telephone calls and two emails, I received a notification that my parcel had been delivered. Oh, OK, then perhaps it had been left in our porch. I went to check but no. I noticed the driver had posted a photo as proof of delivery. Great, except the photo was not our house and certainly not one of our neighbours' either. Cue more 'phone calls (by P as I can't hear too well on the 'phone). The driver did turn up later this afternoon with a cheery hello and an apology. It seems he had scanned the wrong barcode when he delivered someone else's parcel and the system had closed off my order instead. Oh well, at least it arrived eventually.
My sister has encouraged me to take up sewing again to give me something more interesting to do other than reading blogs(!). I dug out some old dress patterns but have had to order some fabric online, which will take a couple of weeks to arrive. In the meantime, being an impatient sort of person, I wanted to practice so I found a large square scarf that I have never used and decided to try out the dress pattern on that. A lot of fiddling around to get the pattern pieces arranged then cut out. Unfortunately, the fabric is too thin so when I tried sewing it just stared to tear. Bother!
I think a large glass of wine and some comfort food is in order this evening.
