Next to godliness. Ha.

A nice, tidy wardrobe, that was one of my goals this week: mission complete. Hurrah! I don't really like tidying/organising/sorting, so I don't do it until I just can't live with it No More. Of course, this is a vicious circle; if I just did it a little bit all the time, it would never get to the super annoying "I can barely open the wardrobe door without things falling out" stage.

While I was at it, I also sorted through my chest of drawers with craft supplies (ok, we might as well call it by its real name, my Fabric Stash Drawers, seeing as 2 out of 3 drawers are full of fabric!) and 2 storage bins (more fabric + yarn). It is quite liberating to let go of stuff. I threw away 3 mixed large bags mostly containing clothes I haven't worn in ages or was in the "oh my god, what were you thinking!?" category. Letting go of that was awesome! Then there's a bunch of discarded sewing projects which are going to be cut up and go into my scrap bag + some bits and bobs that I think I will use in future swaps (no, they are not dodgy things the moths have had a go at!)

So now I can start the weekend with that weight lifted off my shoulder. Although, it feels like it's been weekend for several days, because my poor sweetie has been home from work the last 3 days. At first I was a bit mean, teasing him that it was the much-feared man cold. But the freezing while burning up yesterday would suggest otherwise!

Also, for you UK folks: I don't know if you remember that we went to see the filming of an episode of QI last year? Well, we did. And it was so much fun and we've been waiting (and waiting and waiting) for it to finally air and tonight it will! BBC 1 at 9:00 PM. I don't know if it was just more fun because we were actually there, but as I recall it, it was one of the funniest episodes so far. I guess we'll know tonight. And if you like QI, I really, REALLY encourage you to watch it. Seriously.
