sorry I didn’t get back to you sooner.. I live in crazy busy reality, which is, well.. crazy busy! 😉
plus today reached the apex, one of those days your going to use to measure up all other shitty days thinking well, still less shitty than that time..
as you might remember I mentioned the fact that I live with crazy people too.. well they get bad crazy sometimes.. well, most of the times, but in a way I manage to cope with.. not today..
just to give you the picture: a mission impossible one after the other, and as the icing on the cake the infamous words you are a total failure.. (only vomiting on my stitching would have made it worse..)
so yes, after all I’ve done for my family this is what I got.. years and years of bummers, pains in the ass, rudeness and now this.. being called a complete failure.. I spoke loud and clear that I did not deserve this and felt insulted enough.. what hurts most is this utter bullshit my own mother, whom I always did my best to help out..
I’m divided between disgusted and disappointed.. and I really need some stitching in oder to calm me down..

as promised, the RicamiAMO folders have been sent out tuesday (not monday because the happy family forgot I needed a car.. and it was heavily raining, so I couldn’t take the bike), I asked the PO lady.. she reckons about 1 week for European destinations, 2 weeks for US/Australia
as for the exceeding money.. the folder grew up so huge with cooperations it weighted much more than expected.. and so were shipping costs – as you can see in this page a 200gr. envelope shipped to Zone 2 (US) or 3 (Australia) exceeds the expected costs* – I sorted things out anyways, so don’t worry 🙂
