Dear diary, nah, but sort of - a bit of whining and then I'm done! :)
I had a heavy cold about a month back, and never got well although I started working again.
Now I have it all over again, or maybe it's a different virus but the same symptoms (there are a few to chose from, a few hundred or so?). Mighty annoying either way - AAAAaaaaargh! -
Oh, did I say that out loud..?
So things that I had planned to do didn't happened at all, and after a while it makes me a bit sad and restless, I haven't been idle all of the time though, I don't seem to do that very well. So here's a few photos of my week(s):
The oaks finally woke up and got their leaves out.

Reading about viruses and common cold online.. again.

Sorting out an Etsy order YAY!

Watching Miss Marple again - for a bit of comfort and nice company.
Oh that's tahini on my sandwiches in case you wondered about that goo.

Got little bags for my Handmade card + envelopes - so they
look like the ones you find in shops. Fancy that, eh!
Maybe 'professional' is a better way to put it..
Little note enclosed with card + envelope.

The True Cost

Watch it! Important subject!
(Finns på bl.a. Netflix nu)

"This is a story about clothing. It's about the clothes we wear, the people who make them, and the impact the industry is having on our world. The price of clothing has been decreasing for decades, while the human and environmental costs have grown dramatically. The True Cost is a groundbreaking documentary film that pulls back the curtain on the untold story and asks us to consider, who really pays the price for our clothing?"
