And then on Friday night I found out I had won this fantastic giveaway on the LMQG site, for a 2 day course with the fantastic Katy Jones at The Village Haberdashery in London, excited was I, delighted and doing a little dance? No, it put me in a right mood!
Why I hear you shout, or maybe not, well because on Friday, only a few hours ago I had agreed to be elsewhere on the date of the first part of the course, and wriggle as I might I couldn't get out of it! I'm not saying I cried, but i'll be honest I was close to it, and I was really p'd off into Saturday too.

Incidentally, Ruth will also be teaching at the Fat Quarterly retreat, time will tell if I manage to get into her class. :o).
