Well, this week has rushed by. The weather has been quite good on the whole and has seen a little flurry of ‘round the house’ jobs. I don’t know what’s come over me !
I think writing an essay for work has had a lot to do with it. It’s amazing how having an essay looming over you can prompt the need to do anything but.
(check the quality of that brush….must invest in some more…and the paint lid – you can see how long the paint had been sitting patienty in the shed)
Our downstairs loo now has two coats of paint, a rather fetching soft green. It’s only taken two years to get around to it. Amazing what an essay can do.
I stopped procrastinating and got on with it like a big girl, enjoying the sunshine as I worked. Couldn’t see the screen very well but there was no way I was going to sit inside in the gloom and make it seem more of a chore..
What else has been going on ? Well, I finished some spinning at long last..
The Bluefaced Leicester on the left will probably become socks and the thick and thin angora/extra fine merino blend has been claimed by Lily (when in the shape of a nice snuggly winter scarf). These are my hand dyed fibres. I wanted to get more practice with the angora especially. It’s one of my favourite fibres. I spun it quick and carefree, which was the effect I was going for, with the added benefit of being quicker!
It’s nice and early here, 7am. I can hear the little one chatting to Nick upstairs, so I know the peace will be shattered shortly. Yep, here she is. (Break for a big cuddle….)..
Right I’m off to hang the washing out, make porridge and to straighten this place up before my Dad gets here. It’s barbeque day! And I have the makings of Mojitos in the fridge. Fingers crossed the weather holds.
Have a super weekend !
