Saturday is blog day

Hello Everybody,

Well I havent been able to come up with the pictures this week as our resident photographers family has had life hit them very hard so the suspense will just have to keep growing.

I have had the hugest week with everyone wanting to catch up with Peddles before he leaves which is Monday morning 5am now - I am glad we get to have Sunday arvo (so he can clean the house before he goes haha) So no sewing got done BUT.......

I GOT TO DRIVE A BIG HUGE DUMP TRUCK TODAY as a job trial/work experience (ie if I get the job GREAT if I dont when I approach companies about taking me on I can say YES I have spent time in dump trucks. I had heaps of fun - can you tell?? It was quite funny as there were two types of guys on the site - 1's that were really shy and behaved themselves or 1's that were really brash and out there and then would apologise for was nice.

Tonight we are going to some friends house that are setting up their backyard to be a monastry (I can tell but a medieval backyard thinga) So they invited us for tea but to come at 4.30pm so we can see the garden first - so that should be very cool. Its really funny their medival personas are she is a red headed viking shiela and he is a brown hair really cool light blue eyed scotish chat they are loads of fun though.

So thats all Ive got for you all this week - Oh did I mention we set up our "sewing room" no????? did I forget to mention that I HAVE A SEWING ROOM!! nothing exciting it just means we got organised allocated one room for sewing bought some plastic boxes to store material in put a table in there to put my sewing machine on (its huge so I can do all my cutting on it also) So now if you ever feel like can pop around and come and sew at my house!! hehe.

Love Fiora
PS Baggy Trousers - your hat rocks
PPS Jane Doe - I want the blue pair of shoes in your pic :)

Fiora the High Visibility Princess

I have been "told" that I must update this - to my defense I promise I did write a post last weekend but I decided that I was toooooo grown up to leave it and it was not what my blog was meant to be about (ie I was having a bitch)

Onto fun stuff - why do you ask am I a high visibility princess???? I passed my truck lisence last sunday which is very amazing so this week we have been out buying me a very very bright orange outfit so if I have trials or get a job I already have an outfit to start with (I know that is a bit presumptious getting the uniform before the job but I do have a trial next saturday).

As people close to me know I have a love for PJ pants (they are normally my uniform for sewing in....actually to do everything in) but I have cut my first pair out this week. I am still trying to figure out the sqare in the crutch part (for this pair I think I will forget about it - I have cut them big enough and the pair that I cut it from doesnt have a sqaure bit so Ill put it to the sewing machine today)

Also other exciting news - we have tables and chairs now - we have been pretty minimilist lately, which hasnt worried us but it meant I had nothing to stand on while Peddles did my hemline....thats right girls the man knows what he is doing when it comes to sewing (more so than me haha)

So today in happy innilgard there is the barons championship, a potluck feast then a ball. Peddles and I had no intention of going to the barons championship (I just didnt want to, but he originally had to work) but because the weather has been so bad work was cancelled for him we decided not to go. He is currently cooking a goose (no that wasnt a typo) we are really getting into the whole medieval cooking thang. This one is how to cook a peacock by stuffing it with onions and apples so will let you know how it goes.

So the potluck feast should be good and I am really looking forward to the dancing stuff. The woman running the ball is awesome (she is the one that reminds me of Jane Doe) We went and stayed at her manificient property last weekend (it was like going to a B&B). Colette is awesome she does costume, made her own period tent, does awesome cooking, runs dance classes and is being authorised for heavy fighting today. Her husband and Peddles have been friends for years so Im hoping that the friendship with her will keep getting better.

So I am going to be flying solo from Monday week as Peddles will be working in Roxby again. I feel much better about it compared to last time - I now understand how things work here a lot better - im not being melodramtic or anything but the roads are crazy here so hopefully I wont get lost as much.

Anyway dont fall off your chair Jane Doe but I am going to go and put my blue dress on so Peddles can do my hem - I will get this dress done damnit (there wont be any decoration but it will be done haha)

Promise to take pictures xx
