I don't believe it, I haven't put a single stitch in this week! Where on earth did the last week go???
Meh, Truth be told, I went back to work this week and the kids are back at school after two weeks off for the July/Winter school holidays... I get heaps of stitching done in the holidays and have plenty of time for blog updates but once we get back into it, time doesn't just fly, it hurtles by! Such is the life of a full time Mama/Teacher.
Tonight, I'll put in a few stitches whilst indulging in my other passion - motor racing! Yes, yes, strange I know but I love fast cars and racing bikes... This weekend is a big one too - The Formula 1 is on late tonight and the MotoGP is on early tomorrow morning. There's an Aussie; Mark Webber for Red Bull Racing, on Pole for the F1 and another Aussie; Casey Stoner, for Repsol Honda, is fighting to defend his lead in the world championship in the MotoGP. All this and the end of the Tour de France (no motors involved there of course) tonight too - An Aussie proudly wearing the yellow jumper into Paris carrying the pride of an entire nation with him.
We were up late last night watching the qualifiers for the F1, up early this morning for the GP quali's... Love it!
Before I go any further, I'll make it clear I am not an Australian. I live here - have done for over a third of my life now, I have Aussie blood in my veins and a genuine transported convict in the family tree but I am not an Australian. It is important to make the distinction that I am a New Zealander. Born and bread, a proud Kiwi, a One-Eyed-Cantabrian. My heart and soul are in Christchurch with my family but for what it's worth, I've fallen in love with this country and that also spills over to its' sports, as long as there are no Kiwi's involved! LOL...
So tonight, while I'm yelling my head off for the Aussies, I'll try to rev up the stitching mojo! I've just signed up for the about.com Christmas exchange, so I've got to get the scissor case finished for the current exchange!
Right, I'm off, I've got to head out for rehearsal in a bit, we've got a gig Wednesday night - got to be on time so I get home in time for the racing!
