Dear poor neglected blog,
I’m ever-so-sorry for my long, absence the last week or so. I know you probably feel thoroughly abandoned, and very let down, but alas my priorties this last week or so have been found elsewhere.

I spent the day-times last week in Rotorua on ‘workshop’ for my course. It was hard. Harder than I expected. We learned the very basic of pattern drafting, and drafted up basic blocks for a bodice with sleeves, a four and six gore skirt, a ruched top skirt with godets and a basic pant. We learned how to grade a basic skirt pattern (go up and down in sizes). And we learned how fantastic the food is at the cafe on campus. ha.
Only 3 (including me) people from our group of 21 showed up for the workshop. Which is unfortunate for them (I found it hard enough with the tutor right there, let alone going it alone!), but lucky for me. I’m not a ‘big- crowd’ person by any means. The other two people on my course were both almost double my age, but we had plenty of laughs.
The evenings were filled with a flu-y child and mother, extended sleeping after working my brain so hard all day, and trying to fit any any last chance hours with my sister that I could.

Jodie left on Thursday, after what feels like very, very whirlwind three weeks. They travelled round a bit, and so we only saw them half a dozen times, which was a real shame. But Aesop loved meeting them, and it was nice for me to both see my sister and to have an adult to hang out with. It sounds pathetic but it was just nice to see someone.
And in the middle of all this I also managed to get a stress fracture (apparently) in my foot.( Who knew stress manifested in the form of fractures?) And I tried desperately to get my order finished for Dandylion, fingers crossed I get the last finishing touches done this evening.Oh and did I mention the terrible twos are in full throes? It’s constant battles around our house at the moment.
So I’m a hobbling, limping, still stressing out, still flu-y well… mess.
But I’m back to daily updates!
Oh how I’ve missed you sweet blog.
