Miserable night out

My little girl is going to be 18 on Friday. Technically, Megan is my big girl since her sister is only 13, but she will always be my little girl.  Hard to believe that 18 years ago today I was waddling like a duck with my great big pregnant belly and wondering when my baby would decide to arrive. Obviously, she arrived when she was good and ready, and the time has flown by ever since.
In a few months she will be heading off to university, and so, as a birthday treat, we headed off to Edinburgh yesterday for some special mum and daughter time. We had a truly Miserable night out and absolutely loved it.....  What am I talking about ???
We went to The Edinburgh Playhouse to see Les Miserables. What an incredible show !! Wonderful music, incredibly sad story, amazing cast. I could go on and on and on about how much we enjoyed ourselves but hopefully you get the idea.
We managed to fit in a bit of shopping (well quite a lot of shopping) several coffee stops, lunch (mmm !!) supper (mmm!!)  and a bit more shopping this morning after breakfast, before heading to the train station to come home.
So grown up. Happy Birthday Megan.
 Do I now have to start acting my age I wonder.

And Finally......

It's finished.

Not quite as big as I had planned but big enough to cosy up on the sofa.
The turquoise fades out towards the edges. I know that's because I ran out but it looks like it could have been planned that way. I'm pretty pleased with the scalloped edge which I think finishes it off quite nicely.

Love the blanket and no-one will know about you running out of turquoise ... unless you announce it to the world, that is!

I love your "cosy up on the sofa" rug, it's gorgeous. OMG now your daughter is an adult and in theory your job is done! ( Take it from one who knows, your job isn't complete just yet, A few more life hurdles to go!)
