well it rarely stops at the moment. It's been a very up and down couple of weeks, low points, daughter trapped her finger in car door and then hurt her shoulder, son had to have his beautiful cat Shadow put to sleep because of a tumour and I lost a pendant that I loved because my daughter brought it back from Denmark for me and it was one of those very useful pieces. Yuk.
High points, son became a householder, there was no lasting damage to daughter and last night son and I went to the National to see Mark Ravenhill's adaptation of Terry Pratchett's book Nation. We enjoyed the performance and then had the added bonus of meeting Sir Terry who had been sitting close by. Great stuff.
I can't remember the name of the shop, they sell clothes, but they must have cornered the market in old sewing machines. I took tthese on my mobile phone so they are a bit grainy but I thought they would be fun to play with.
