Birthday Post

Well, another B-day down the tubes. I spent it the way I usually do, not working and sitting on my tail-feathers. I bought my own cake (as I usually do) and ate it alone (as I usually do), but I got an amazing amount of work done!

Here's Monday night:

And Tuesday:

Also got series 11 of Midsomer Murders done:
Since I finally got series 13 in, I can breathe a sigh of relief on that front!

Thing about birthdays, the older I get, the less I care about celebrating them. Just another reminder of another year gone and nothing to show for it. Rather sad actually. That's why I always take off work on my birthday. I at least want to enjoy the most miserable day of the year in my favorite ways...sloth, envy, (I was born prideful, so that is inherent), and my all time favorite sin, gluttony! I don't have access to the materials for greed or lust and it's hard to be wrathful when you're home alone, so, I guess I'll have to be happy with four out of seven! Might as well break the rules of the religion of my birth on my birthday! The only bit of youth left in rebellious nature!

HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO ME! Here's to one more future miserable year!

Erm, well happy mierable birthday?? You seem to have got a lot of stitching done - it looks so good and its nearly done. This year you will have a Disney cross stitch completed design to show for it! Not as sad as a year of unfinished projects.

Should I wish you a Happy "Miserable" Birthday too?! Don't see your year as a miserable year with nothing to show, instead think of one more year to stash and stitch, and of course sharing with us :). And that seems a nie way of enjoying the day, cake and stitch yummy :)

The stash as definitely quadrupled this year! And to think, in January I actually cleaned it out!

But I do think this blog is actually doing me some good (another reason why I started it). If everyday could be spent stitching and eating!!
