What Now?

The Great British Sewing Bee has finished and there is a big hole in my life.  What am I going to watch now?  Actually there are eleventy ten films and series saved on the tv and a stack of dvds, but that's not the point!  I am going to miss it so much.  It seemed just such a kind show, and even though they were competing they still helped each other out.

An ice cream van had parked at the school gate.  I hadn't taken any money with me, but bear decided that was okay, he could go to the local shop instead, picking up my money en route.  I was happy to indulge him this once, and I suspect that the van will be moved on, but I will definitely be rationing this.  Apart from anything else, it was expensive!

Bear was consoling himself with the ice cream.  He has also enjoyed the Great British Sewing Bee.  I won't say who won, but it wasn't bear's favourite.  He still enjoyed it, though, which was the main thing.  It was too late for him to stay up and watch so he put it on catch up when he came downstairs this morning.  It's funny really.  Bear, DH and I are all completely addicted to the Great British Sewing Bee but bear and DH don't sew and I'm scared of my sewing machine.

The school holidays start in twenty two days time.  I think I will aim to finish some outstanding projects then.  It will help save my sanity.  First project - learn to love the dratted sewing machine!


  1. I haven't seen the British Sewing Bee, but they show the British Bake Off on our public television, here, and I enjoy watching that.

  2. I agree with you about sewing bee i have withdrawal symptoms. My OH was a little sneery about it but that was before he started watching it now he is hooked. I think that he enjoys it because he is a retired craftsman and appreciates the skills. Who did bear want to win? Was he like me I favoured Jade, I thought she showed a sense of maturit
