Undies and Chocolates
I took a photo of the contents of a parcel that arrived from my Swiss Mother-in-Law recently. As usual laden with chocolate.....I think she thinks we are not eating properly if we don't have a ready supply of chocolate...and of course it has to be Swiss!! Contained in the package were two pairs of undies for my Husband. Well I certainly was peeved that she thought I couldn't even buy undies for her son and she had to send them over. Then I got really peeved when I saw one pair were BONDS....I mean what was she thinking buying BONDS undies in Switzerland and sending them to Australia when they COME from Australia!!! As soon as her dear Son arrived home I went on about how silly his Mother is thinking that I can't even buy him undies etc!!! On closer inspection he revealed that the BONDS undies were in fact his undies that were left at her place on our last holiday!!! Ones I had bought ages ago!!! The other pair are not marcel's and obviously not my father-in-laws...which means they must be her Son-in-laws and should therefore have been sent amongst another package of chocolate to New York to her daughter!!!! I have no problems with undies in our supply of chocolates....my dear Mother-in-law is the queen of washing and would have boil washed them before sending!!!!!!!!!!
Anyone else ever had the stupid idea to "catalogue" their fabric stash?????? People have been requesting bags and wanting fabrics I no longer had. So I thought I would cut samples and stick them in a folder and people could choose from these.........remembering these are only fabrics to be used for bags...I have loads more for "other projects".....well it is embarrassing how much fabric I have!!! Just plain embarrassing!!!!!!!!!!!!
