Lil and I had such a busy day yesterday... Lil had her fringe cut at Snippety Do Dah and sat in the Thomas the Tank engine (a big deal for her). And S and Will came over for a coffee while Lil was asleep. When L got up we made fairy cupcakes (normal cupcakes with strawberry icing and 'fairy dust' on top).
Then my friend F's husband M sent me a message about a new old sewing machinehe just bought, so we drove over the other side of town (in torrential rain!) to help him work it out. It must be 20-odd years old, 'Celestial' made for Waltons. And its a cracker except that it will only do straight stitch. We opened her up to find out why and found that a little plastic duverlacky had disintegrated so the different stitch gears wouldn't engage. Anyway, I told him that I could count on one hand the number of times I used the other stitches and I think for $25 he did really well! Then we drove home and made some great Saag Aloo for the Indian feast with my Mum and her partner, and Sister and her partner. Yum. Then settled in front of the tube for The Chaser's War on Everything and pissed ourselves.
