Or should that be "achievements small and smaller"? Either way, looky-look, I finally finished Dulcie's cardigan, sewing on the buttons at work last night. It's not perfect (a little baggy round the body and smallish on the arms - she's long and lean, this one) but the great news is that Dulcie herself loves it. Yay! I took it off her while we were having lunch and, as soon as we were finished eating, she ran and got it, giving me her best "Peeeeease!" until I helped her put it back on. Mind you, she did later appear wearing a pair of her dad's dirty pants round her neck, so perhaps I shouln't take it as that much of a compliment!
And my other achievement? Finding the missing part (the central piece, no less) of everyone's favourite wooden cat puzzle, which had been AWOL for weeks. Dulcie and I are both glad to have him back in one piece, or should I say, back in five pieces?
On a day when I didn't manage to get dressed until nearly 3pm (and even then only by sacrificing my shower) achievements like this are not to be sniffed at!
