Recently they turned 17 and 14 ! I am so proud of them, having become such independent and nice people.
My 'new lap top' and mobile office during the Spring holiday, I like to stick around when they are home all day...

mixed up






When you work from home things tend to get mixed up, especially for me with little discipline....
A little cleaning here, some drawing there, coffee break with a friend is stretched to shopping for hours, sewing at night and mailing and surfing the internet in your PJ till noon....

(un)lucky buys



 



Some unlucky purchases in 4 weeks were these two (!) pairs of very expensive boots. The first one looked very promising but after one week I already sensed that we were not a merry couple. I like them still but I decided to buy another pair of a brand I have good experiences with, so I bought a pair of black ones in the same size as my oldies, unfortunately it appears suddenly my feet have grown or sagged :(  I give the latter another chance, they are on the draw-bench at the cobbler's, but the brown ones have to leave the house. Is anyone interested? They are size 39,  dark brown Panama Jack.

On the other hand...
I made 3 lucky buys from the thrift store in 2 weeks time and they were extremely inexpensive (!)  : green leather boots for only €10 - I chopped the shaft off so they weigh much less and fit even better, plus a new grey woolen upholstered twoseater for €15 and two wonderful green cups and saucers....

... and again my inclination and idealism is confirmed that expensive shopping is just no fun...
