Last night was a rather disturbed night, with Hubby coughing etc.
He did get up with the intentions of returning to work, but the effort of showering and dressing sapped him of what little energy he had, so it was back to bed for him.
With no major commitments, I was eager to get up and on with the day, hoping to get more organised for the Big Day!
With Teen One now finished with the dining room table, I was able to put my lovely runner back out ( thank you FQ2FF) and finish off the Christmas card writing.
I failed to mention yesterday, but in the middle of my hectic weekend, the washing machine flooded the conservatory floor!
As if there wasn't enough to do, I then had to mop it up, rescue what was on the floor ( power leads to the tree lights!) then used an old towelling dressing gown to dry as much as I could.
I threw the sodden gown onto the washing line after, figuring it would get a random wash with the rain or dry out enough (what was I thinking!) for me to put it back in the garage.
Well this morning I wanted to put a line of washing out ( and some was almost dry this afternoon!) so took the gown off...which of course was as stiff as a board.
I remembered the first time I saw my first line of frozen washing many many years ago and what a shock it was!
I wasn't sure if the Teens had ever seen anything like it ( in these days of central heating and tumble driers) so brought in the gown, "draped" over my arm and said"Have you ever seen this before?"
Took it off, with only scant attention on the matter, then put it on the floor, where of course it stood instead of fell into a heap!Well.....their faces were a picture!
It was so funny, I wish I had the forethought to film it, but then that might have given
the game away.
I had several errands to run in town and round about, including dropping off a litre pudding bowl to one of the students. She had promised to make a sticky toffee pudding for her fellow students but didn't have a bowl in her lodgings.
With the errands run and lunch made for Teen One, Hubby and I, bacon and brie sandwiches....yum...
I took time to warm up, sewing in the ends of some granny squares I have been working on.
My friend had asked me if I would make a dolly pram set for a navy and white pram....I bought the wool and started making the set when my friend gave me the pram cover for sizing...sadly its rather a light navy if it can be called navy at all!
Oh well....too late now.
I made up a lattice type edging, to thread ribbon through.
Tonight I hope to make up a shell edge then put ribbon bows in the corners.
The mum is a very "ribbons and bows" person, when it comes to dressing her little girl, so I am hoping this will fit the bill for her.
I finally made it up to the attic to make piles of presents for family members far and wide.
Surprisingly, the collecting of bits and bobs over the last few months seems to have paid off, and there is very little left to buy!!
Of course, I had forgotten exactly what I had gathered, and it seems I now need bigger shoeboxes!(Those in the know will know what I mean!)
Whose bright idea was this?
