My antidote for feeling like I have the past few days is a simple one. Family, friends and chocolate. Okay, it doesn't fix the world, or even the specific horridness of what has me in a funk, but it does help.
Today I met up with a friend and I gave her a small gift as she has just celebrated a birthday milestone.
I did a mini quilt as you go heart shaped panel, then turned it into a lavender bag. It is 100% Heather Ross on the front, and backed with some soft pink corduroy. It was good to spend a couple of hours chatting and laughing. Where would we be in life without friends?
And for the chocolate side of things, I made cookies yesterday - Double Chocolate Chip. I followed the recipe totally, until it came to the amount of chocolate chips required. I doubled it. Sometimes you have to do what you have to do.
Half the cookies have been eaten already too. No sense making them and not eating them, for breakfast she says, hanging her head in shame.
