Monday, November 3

monday monday...

i am hosting a 'skirt' party this friday night with the lovely 'marmalade originals' gals...it seemed a great idea at the time...all those weeks ago and it still seems a great idea with just a few days to go. that's if i don't think about all the things i need to get done in the short space of time left...
i think the biggest disadvantage i have going for me right now is i'm a procrastinator...i am quite sure i am not alone in this.

so i must be spurred into action by making a list...
tuesday ("why not today Tif, what's wrong with monday?") well i have used my monday up on 'thinking' about my list, only a few minutes left and the door will be opened by our #3 and i will use him as an excuse to 'ponder' further instead of just 'doing'...

so let's start that over again,
tuesday: dye some 'slips' silver/gray for the 'holidays' (these are my favorites, i have to admit)...whilst Mrs W. Machine does her thing, concentrate on making 'teal' colored slips on Miss Ethel
wednesday: hope old wood 'hangers' purchased from etsy arrive in time for a little 'slip covering' magic...and 'blog'
thursday: make more slips...hopefully with lovely looking silver/gray color...wash and dry
friday: clean and shove piles of things upstairs, 'blog'...then make space ready for the 'skirt' party...this all seems very do able until we get to the bit about the party where i put on the invite 'food' and 'wine'...no problem with the 'wine' bit, still have plenty left over from turning 40 (excuse me here, i just need to compose myself...i forget i am 40 and then when i remind myself it just takes a little 'mo' to focus again...) it's the bit about 'food' that is bothering me...
i have yet to discover the aisle in the grocery stores that sell prepared fresh party food...i see frozen but not fresh...so i think i am back to the cheese cube on sticks fiasco...

in the meantime i'm rustling up help from anyone in the house that is willing to pitch in...so far i have had very little response...



according to her list, she will see you wednesday ~ Tif

That sounds like fun! Takeout/carryout from favorite restaraunts in bite size portions on your own pretty plates might be a yummy way to go. :> Hope it goes well!

What about crisps and cheese balls? Haha.
You could make toasted sandwiches...haha
Will people need food?
What about sweets?
What about a Sarah Lee frozen cake?
What about some cat biscuits?
hahahaha

Should I promise not to eat anything so you'll need less food? I think you should just stop at the KFC and get a bucket o'chicken. I don't think you can go wrong with a bucket of deep fried meat.
