Sympathetic Characters

It was so lovely to have my mama, "GRAMMMMMM-ie" here for a visit. Teddy was thrilled to have an ally so sympathetic to his cause. And she's just plain old fun to be about. She arrived just in time for Teddy's party that wasn't. Held my hand when I took Teddy to the doc's (she was right, it was just a cold and not consumption). Wandered around the ROM with us, agreeing that yes there were BURDS and BEARS. Did some quilt fixings shopping and re-upped my membership to the Fabricland up the road. Babysat Teddy while my sweetie and I saw Avatar (which I loved THIS MUCH) and went to a little hole in the wall restaurant for a sammiches and smooching (best date ever). She also cooked delicious things and made me laugh like a hyena, just like usual.
It was a great visit. Next time I'm going to steal her passport and lock her in the hallway closet. Maybe.

I got the same stinking steaming cold that Teddy had. Which, just yuck. We had to cancel Teddy's party AGAIN. The poor child is going to be in his thirties before he has a second birthday party. We're aiming for next Saturday but I'm not holding my breath as my sweetie is starting to feel a little lousy.

In the mean time I've been making the sodding, blasted, stinking, rotten duvet cover mentioned in the last post. And an apron that I love a ridiculous amount, and hacking another of the pairs of super cheap shoes. and poking through my fabric stash. and producing snot like is was my J.O.B.
Fun times.


  1. Oooh Baby - sorry for the snot. We're just recovering at our house. Teen Daughter#2 had it first, then Teen Son#1, then me. Couldn't we all be sick at the same time and get it over with in one shot?

    No, of course not. That would be too easy!

    (So far, Hubby and the other two kids have escaped the misery. Lucky Ducks.)

    Hope you're all feeling better soon.

  2. Yup nothing like WEEKS of abject snuffling yuckiness. Good, stout, chicken soupy flavour wishes to you and yours!

  3. I LOVE your blog!! Always makes me smile! Hope you enjoy your 2 yr old birthday party, when you get it. Our last birthday party was for my 19 yr old "little" ,er 6ft 3 boy. Did. Not. Enjoy. Not so cute when they're drunken and staggering and random girlfriends in ridiculously teeny dresses are falling over into your flower beds, laughing hilariously while you look daggers... Hmmm, something to look forward to! Enjoy your cute little boy!
    Your refashioned coat looks beautiful.

  4. You poor thing. I hope you both feel better soon :(
