It will get used, so it's not entirely impulsive and just for the pretties. However another parcel that arrived the same day was Buried in Treasures: Help for Compulsive Acquiring, Saving, and Hoarding. The co-incidental timing didn't escape me. There's hoarding in the family, and I know I've a tendency to find it hard to let go of things. This is to help me not get to the level of stuff that it becomes a problem for me. It started to while I was so sick if only because it had become disorganised, because you can't organise too much stuff.
Most of my stuff is sewing & costume related, but I can do an overall cull. I've done it in the past when I moved home a lot, however staying in the one place for so much longer has meant a build up of things. Plus I can learn to think about objects differently.
The other thing that arrived was the costume patterns. I spent time this evening reading them and might even use the Tailor's Guide stays pattern as the base for my hobbit bodice.
I'm off my food today - there's a bug going around work and I came home at lunchtime yesterday and slept til 5.30pm. I was ok enough to go to work today but didn't want brekkie. I did get to eat a chicken quiche for lunch, and it was very chicken tasting. That is rather than faint hints of chicken I could see the pieces and taste it. I'll buy it again, though it was fairly pricey, simply cos the filling was quality. I got it at from the frozen section at an IGA on the way to work, and it's by a Queensland company Glutenfree Bakery. I don't have a photo of it, cos it's in my tummy. As it was frozen I heated it in the microwave at work, but if I was at home I'd take the time to heat it in an oven after defrosting. Last week I bought a twinpack of their Chicken Pies. YUM. This is something I've wanted repeatedly in the past 5 months and I finally found one I could eat.
