Thank you muchly for all your well wishes this week. We are mostly recovered, and feeling much, much better. It never ceases to amaze me how nasty a dose of gastric flu can be - it can take quite some time for the body to recover and get back to it's regular energy levels, and I for one am still not fully recharged.

But today is my birthday and the energy must be found from somewhere! It's my 40th birthday, a real milestone, and quite bizzarely an age that my head can't quite get itself around. I've no idea why this birthday has been worrying me, as I know it's just a number and we're only ever a day older than the day before etc, and it really is just another day and so on. Yet it's been niggling me for ages. Maybe it's because I never thought I'd live this long, or because I never saw myself this old. Which is silly, of course, but let's not try and make sense of the irrational!

I woke up with this idea - why not have a bit of fun and have one day sale? I wasn't sure if it was a bit gimmicky but thought, what the heck, let's give it a go anyway. I'm not going to turn 40 ever again so may as well make a day of it, yes?

So here's the deal: for the next 24 hours, you can have yourself a 40% discount on all of my PDF's (i.e. single patterns and e-books) available through this website or Ravelry if you use the discount code fourty. Remember it's a Rav code, so you'll need to enter it when you've filled up your cart and you're ready to checkout. And it's only valid for 24 hrs, it'll end at 8am GMT+1 tomorrow, 12th February. Feel free to spread the word!

And now I'm going to spend the weekend celebrating with friends and family, and try not to make myself ill again...
