The Ties That Bind

Last night I dreamed I was drinking whiskey and I appear to have woken up with the hangover :-(  Despite that, there's much excitement here this morning, as my blog counter sailed past the 15,000 mark while I was asleep!  It could be 15,000 people who visit the blog once and never come back ever again, but I like to think it's a small group of people who keep coming back day after day so a HUGE thank you to all my repeat readers.  And an even HUGER thank you to anyone who's spread the word.  I also hit another landmark yesterday (because these things seem to all happen at the same time) - I got added to my 100th circle on Etsy.  To celebrate I'm offering 15% off everything in my shop with offer code CIRCLE100.  I don't really understand Etsy circles so I've never circled anyone, but I'm very flattered that 100 people chose to circle me.

I usually get up at 6.30am because that's what time Hubby gets up for work. But this morning Hubby's not going to work, he's had to take the day off to look after our poorly little boy (who is probably the real reason for my headache, not the dream whiskey) while I'm at the hospital (getting discharged by the endocrinologist, fingers crossed).  But I was up at 6.30 anyway, just to write my blog.  I'm slowly turning into a real blogger...  And what was I doing so early this morning?  Researching handmade ties, of course!
