Procrastination

The Saturday after next (October 30th) I am going to be doing a craft fair, in Bakewell Town Hall. So for those of you anywhere near Bakewell, you will be able to come and see me looking excruciatingly embarrassed with a huge empty table with only a tie-dyed tshirt and one cushion on it, with my mother sitting next to me muttering ‘I told you so’ in a manner which is not encouraging. Because the main thing I have learned about craft fairs so far is, don’t leave it until the week before to think about whether you’ve got enough stock or not. Anyway, it’s fine. I’m not hyperventilating and running about like a headless chicken at all, and in no way am I tempted to pull a duvet over my head, go down and watch Judge Judy, and start on the sloe gin. It’s all fine. No one needs to worry about me at all. {Sob. Whimper}.

I’ve got another interview tomorrow, hooray, with Vivianne from Kismet’s Companion – thanks Vivianne for being such a nice interviewee ;-), and do check back tomorrow for talk of tarot and soap. OK, now I’m off to rethread my overlocker, which is always my task of choice when I’m very very very busy and stressed. Bugger it, I might have a coffee first. It is my birthday after all (36! How did that happen? I think I’m probably justified in having a midlife crisis now. Peroxide, leather and electric guitars: here we come).

Happy Birthday!! I'm sure that you will manage to pull it all together at the last moment - hey miracles can and do happen when they are fueled by caffeine and chocolate!

Good luck.

Happy Birthday, Susie! Have the coffe, settle down with your overlock machine, and destress. Stress is not conducive to a happy birthday.

Happy birthday, Susie! I hope you've had time for a little celebration despite the bazillion craft fair things still to go. I bet it will all turn out fine, you'll have great inventory, sell lots of beautiful things, and make many customers happy.
