This week has been a fairly stressful one and at one point, everything seemed to be getting too much. I got lots of great advice on my post on Wednesday, and the general concensus was that I need to make more time for myself and focus on enjoying the good things.

I was sent some vouchers to try out the new Chicago Town Takeaway range of pizzas, which was well-timed as I had fussy Little Sis due to come to dinner.

(As I ended up with an odd number of sign ups for the book swap, I've paired myself up twice so that nobody missed out. I sent my two parcels out but forgot to take a photo of them, although Rachel posted a photo of hers, here, when it arrived.
I washed and ironed all of the fabrics which are currently waiting to be cut out and turned into dresses. After a conversation on Twitter where I confessed to not always washing my fabric before I sew it, I decided I would make more effort to - no point making a dress only to find that you shrink it on the first wash and it no longer fits. Now, all I have to do is
What things have made you happy this week?
