Imagine I’m singing that Haircut 100 song…
Anyway today, despite being at work, was really really good! First off, I got some flowers in the post. It was from a company I’d been dealing with and hadn’t done anything special other than sending a chunk of money their way but it was still nice. There were a few chocolates too but Jo and I scoffed those in about 30 seconds.
Mid afternoon I was thinking I’d need to get some extra cash in this month in order to pay off more debt. I’m trying to pay more than the standard £500 a month I’m putting into repayments to clear it quicker because I’m fed up of it now.
Suddenly my phone vibrated with an Etsy sale. I’d only sold a blimmin’ $400 quilt! That’ll do nicely thank you very much. And the buyer was lovely, this is what she said:
I fell in love with your quilt the moment I saw it, so you can be sure it is going to a good home. I’d been looking everywhere for Just The Right Thing for one sad, blank wall, and something told me to search etsy today…and, lo, there it was!
I’ll look forward to welcoming Big George. He’ll be taken good care of.
So I have a binding to redo (it was machined on and it’s a bit pants), a sleeve and a label to stitch on and it’s on the way.
Then I got home and this fab bundle was waiting for me!
So it’s all good. This month I’ve bought a watch for £2.08 including postage and spare battery, been to Festival of Quilts, got 3 numbers on the lottery and got a letter from Barclaycard out of the blue saying they overcharged me for a balance transfer 2 years ago and struck off £300!
If I get to the cinema to see Alan Partridge this weekend then my month is complete I think. I am siegeface.
