I'll keep this brief.

When do you know you've spent too much time sewing?

Is it when your back hurts from bending over that sewing machine? No, that's what pain killers are for.

Is it when you're hungry? No, that's what chocolate's for, a fast acting energy food.

Is it when your child moans she's bored? No, that's when you let her friends come over and trash your place.

"Well, when is it?" I hear you ask.

It's when you go to your undies draw and the only pair of knickers left are so old and saggy and holey that you ponder the merits of going commando.

That's when you know it's time to do the washing!


  1. LOL!! You slay me, Clair! I have to wipe tea off my laptop now because your "going commando" comment had me spewing my mouthful of tea all over my desk for laughing.

  2. ha ha your cracking me up!!!!!!

  3. No! First you wear the old raggy pair .... then wear them inside out the next day ...... THEN it is time to pause the stitching and do some domestic duties!!
    (Thanks so much for a lovely day today. I had a ball!!)

  4. I, like the commenter above, had just taken a sip of coffee and nearly spurted it out over my PC. The benefits of going commando.... God you are funny. Looking forward to catching up on Sunday. x
