to cap it all, my needle broke mid-stitch so I had to make an emergency dash back to the shop ( thank goodness it is only up the road ) to buy a set of new needles for my old machine. You realise that all that needs replacing now is the machine itself?!!!!
Just watched Masterchef semi-finals and a very emotional young man getting through to the final, despite nerves of jelly and a will of iron to overcome them and succeed. Was in tears with him by the announcement at the end. Had to turn TV off immediately afterwards as simply couldn't bear to sit through a programme about abandoned cats in London!! I would have wanted to adopt each and every one by the end of it!
