A few questions.
Why wasn't it this hot and sunny when I was in close proximity to beaches for half the summer?
Why do I always wake up early on a weekend but need an alarm on weekdays?
And now the question I really want the answer to. Why didn't I see that little silver car behind me yesterday when I reversed my car? Why?!!
Well, enough of that. Now you know why I was in such a bad mood yesterday. I was dealing with feelings of total inadequacy. It would help if I hadn't made my stupid mistake outside the school, with witnesses, and have the other car belong to one of the other school mums. But it happened and I will have to just suck it up and get on with it. Yesterday's self pity party for one is officially over and time to move on. But I still thank Mr Cadbury, and a particularly nice vineyard in Chile that makes a delightful Malbec.
So on to more interesting stuff. Did you enjoy school? Did you like literacy (as they call it now - I think we just called it English class)? I loved it, loved (and still do love) reading, loved writing. I could write a proper sentence but ask me to break it up into all its grammatical glory and I hit the wall in my knowledge. How about punctuation? Did you get back reports with little red marks all over it where your teacher corrected your work? I did.
On the other hand, there is punctuation of a different sort these days. I ordered some Punctuation - by American Jane for Moda. It was a Punctuation FQ that was missing from a recent fabric order. I discussed it on the blog. Well the company sent out another FQ to replace the missing one. Only they actually sent me another ten! So I added one to my bundle to make it complete, and then I cheekily added another because I loved it. But I decided that I would let you all share in the bounty by giving away the rest.
You have two chances in this giveaway. For the first chance, leave a comment. That's it. You do not have to follow me. If you want to, if you like my blog - then follow away. But otherwise, just leave a comment, say hello, tell me where you live or something like that.
For a second chance at this giveaway - blog about it and come back and leave a comment telling me you did.
I am happy to post internationally. Remember, if you are a non-reply blogger and I have on means to get hold of you then I will have to redraw and choose someone who I have the contact details for.
That's it. Eight FQs of Punctuation up for grabs. The giveaway will end on Thursday, October 06th at noon British time.
