8:00am - Waking up at 8am as I want to work on some dresses today (even thought it's my weekend and I should sleep until afternoon)
8:30am - Choosing a fabric for the dress. I decide to take first one from the top to make romantic 'English garden' cocktail dress. Later I'll use brown polka dot fabric to make 'Pretty Woman' inspired dress.
9:30am - Time for breakfast! I can work for whole day without eating anything but not today. I have cinnamon & raisin bagels with raspberry and strawberry jam and a large glass of milk.
11:00am - I finally get a book I've been waiting for - '200 projects to get you into fashion design' by Adrian Grandon & Tracy Fitzgerald (I love it!) and more fabrics.
1:00pm - Time for lunch! I take Kris to our local pub O'Gradys. I'm not that hungry after eating all these bagels for breakfast but Kris doesn't mind helping me out with my roast lamb.
3:00pm - I come back home later than I wished as I went to the healthy food store to buy a small gift for my friend. I won't tell what it is. It's raining and I forgot my umbrella. I'm not in a mood yet to finish the dresses so I play with a small baby blue beaded pouch I've got from my work colleague. It's handmade by her cousin from Philippines. I was going to keep there my lipstick but unfortunately it's too small. It's however perfect for a coins.
5:30pm - I came back to the dresses after taking pictures of blue pouch. I work until evening with a short brake for more sweets. I bought them a day before at street market. I have here delicious brownie, maple & jam mini tart and toffi, peanut & pistachio fudge. I share them with Kris. I need to buy more next time. We also ride to the Coole Park to take some pictures of me.
7:30pm -Both dresses are almost ready.
8:00pm - We watch movie and I have more food. Kris doesn't want greasy (burnt) burger before going to the bed so I eat mine alone. I usually don't eat that much in one day but it's the weekend, I don't like cooking and didn't eat much during past week in Dublin. We watch Roger Moore's 'Bowling for Columbine' movie - I know, it's perfect movie for romantic stay-in evening.
