Perhaps I am becoming a teenager. So nothing much has been done today other than a trip into town to get some more happy pills, mooch about waiting for my Husband to come back and pick me up as he had some other things to do. I wandered into the Hospice care shop, more for something to do, and somewhere a bit warmer to be for a few minutes.
I am well trained. I don't go into shops, or buy magazines. It's all very well looking at stuff, but if you neithr actually want anything, or have already decided you aren't spending any money it's a bit pointless. You just get a dose of 'the wants', and get miserable because that thing you have the wants for is not going home with you. I don't have a need to buy anything right now.
However I did order two vogue patterns at half price from 'Sewing World'. None of the shops here stock sewing patterns any longer. Including postage they came to just over £18. I see that as a good investment as once you have a pattern that works well it can be made to look different in all sorts of ways.
I need to get and make some dresses with the material I have squirreled away in the past. I wasn't overly happy with the dress I made up last, but it will be ok for summer days. I prefer working from a pattern I guess, it just makes everything like a jigsaw if the instructions are followed. I can start doing some sewing for next week as hopefully I will get them tuesday or wednesday. I like having a progect.
The news, or rather rampant speculation, half truths, and probably complete fabrications about Syria are rife. I do fear for them. I would hate to see another all out civil war, with so much destruction to all parties. There isn't seemingly a proper opposition to the Assad regime, so if they were allowed to 'take over' it would be all those factions fighting each other in a power vacuum as they are doing in Libya. It just seems right to allow a diplomatic solution with a complete cease fire. Allow the democratic process to be established so that this country is not destroyed. It's the ordinary people caught up in crossfire that suffer.
I wish I understood why America wants to back Al Quaida? I thought five minuits ago they were 'the enemy'. I wonder if the American people themselves actually follow all of this 180 degree manic foreign policy their government has?
