The curse of the Christmas gifts

Yesterday I was making a Christmas gift. Yes, I've already started making them as I really really want to give handmade presents this year.
So, in the process of bending over to look at a piece of pattern lying on the table, I hurt my back. I couldn't move for at least ten minutes. The pain didn't go away. Not even when my boyfriend gave me real nice massage. Everything went from bad to worse: night was hell. Every time I tried to turn over, I woke up because of the pain in my back.
Getting in my car this morning and driving for more than an hour to teach 3 hours (which equals more jumping around and more pain) was something I couldn't even bear to think about. So now I'm sitting at home and I'm not able to do anything. Horror!
Is this the curse of the Christmas gifts?

Rainy season blues

A bit of a rainy season blues. Am busy with two secret projects, so I can't post pics right now. They will follow though.
Mr. Lientje Driel and I are going to officially live together in January (we're going to sign a 'living together contract' at the city hall). The 8th to be precise. But I'm a bit worried about the financial aspects of the party. I don't know if my bank account will be a willing sponsor. Which means that at this point we're even not sure anymore if we're going to give a party at all. And of course I've been so stupid to tell everybody already all about it.. :-(
And sad but true: the rainy season has begun.
