Blogtoberfest: Excuse me while I step out for a quick break

I almost made it through an entire day without blogging. Of course, I still read a dozen or so of your posts, but I was going to be cavalier, I was going to step outside for a day, I was going to have a quick smoko 'round the back of the Forum ( 'cept I don't smoke.)

But here I am again. Perhaps I ought to be worried?

Sometimes, there's no bus for what feels like hours, and then all of a sudden three come along at once. Well, it feels a little like that with the job-hunt at the moment. I've got a busy week ahead of me, with interviews, 'chats', applications to send in, and volunteer work starting. And it's my birthday tomorrow, so I've got a dinner date with the lovely Mr. Tacc, and I am told that there will be a special trip to a craft shop of my choosing - frahfrahfrah!!

As for the photo - these charming young Romans were spotted outside the Coliseum by Mr. Tacc, who is quick with the camera, but not quick enough to escape notice. Having a smoko. It's probably a historically accurate activity, soldiering being what it is.

I hope you're soldiering on with your Blogtoberfest - with little breaks to keep your spirits up.

PS: just in case you think this is no longer a sewing blog, I'm making myself a summer shirt. Badly. I'll post some photos if I'm feeling brave. (It might just become pyjamas.)
