I’m feeling a little bummed out today. You see two states over they’re having a party The Stitches and Craft Show from today until Sunday. I so wish I was in Melbourne so that I could go.
…and then the following weekend there is the Sew It Together meet-up which I was also desperately wanting to go to. My partner even worked out that we would have enough frequent flier points for me to get there – but alas* my little girl just won’t give up breast feeding. She still has two decent feeds a day, sometimes even more. She isn’t interested in a bottle and I don’t feel comfortable leaving her for a couple of days until she is no longer wanting that time with me.
Argh-well… maybe next year.
This feeling reminded me of Dolly Parton’s song “Two Doors Down”.
I love Dolly Parton. She is amazing. I fell for her when I saw her on Donahue (please tell me that you’re old enough to remember that show too???) and she said “well ya know Phil it costs a lot to look this cheap”. From then on I knew I loved her.
Anyway… for those of you on your way to either of these great events don’t forget about me “sitting here crying my heart out feeling sorry”!**
* it’s not really alas – if that’s what she wants or needs then it is okay with me. In the scheme of things this period in our lives is so very brief.
** I’m not really sitting here crying my heart out – by hey – nothing like a little melodrama especially when you’re sitting in bed having been run over by the flu.
