Well, that was a 9 months ago and the second lot of curtains in the living room have been waiting for me, unfinished all that time. Let alone all those other bags of projects wanting to get finished/started.
I confess, I’m particularity bad at spending money on myself, it took me two years of toing and froing to finally buy a good mixer that could handle bread dough. And that’s a machine I use at least once a day! If amounts come over $250 I stress out, so many other things you can buy with that, or how effective it would be to in the mortgage account...
So I made a deal, with myself (my husband is happy to spend money on quality), my granola profits get set aside, for me to spend on myself, no need to feel guilty.
And so I finally bought a Thermomix, after 9 years of lusting after one.
I still have quite a bit of granola to sell, but with three sisters due this year (including my sister-in-law, my youngest sister is too busy training for the Olympics...), it became a good enough reason to fast track. Having done a lot of research and checking out recommendations, I did it, I bought a new sewing machine! With an arm so wide it’s like a dream, it will be a lot easier to get bulky quilts through. And all those functions, there is plenty of new challenges to master.
