I hope you are all having a lovely morning, I’m sitting here with my tea and listening to Adele. I have a day off from work and heading out to Basingstoke shopping centre to head to the fabric store and other clothing & music stores. I have also just heard that a family friend who was like family to us, great uncle Ted has just passed away yesterday. He was a lovely man and always very warm and loving to our family. Today my mum just messaged me to let me know that my grans dog Fly has just had a stroke.
Fly to me was my best friend growing up. My Gran has had many border collie puppies and during my childhood my brother and I had a puppy each that we loved. Cap the boy for my brother and Fly the girl for me, they were both brother and sister. So i’ve spent most of my life with these dogs and fly was there for me to share my secrets with and play with me on the trampoline, long walks across the fields and just sitting together on the staircase. I’ll be finding out how she is doing later, so feeling a little sad inside.
On a happier note, I’ve been giving bank holiday off from work. My parents are heading to the shops, so are picking me up from my aunties house. Hopefully I can head to the fabric store to buy some remnants to play with. I want to learn how to use my machine so fingers crossed today will attempt to. I just need to buy a few essentials like needles! I’ve been buying patterns and hopefully soon will get some rolls for plain cotton fabric to have a go with. So here is today and to starting the journey that will hopefully lead me to being a designer.
I’ll let you know how I get on with today’s adventures!
