Apart from crocheting a bit of my poor neglected ripple blanket and doing a little fabric applique onto card, it has not been a terribly creative morning in Moogsville!
Standing for over three hours last night as I worked my way through this mountain of crumpled nastiness may not have helped! My ironing would not stand up to M-i-L's scrutiny - I sort of 'showed' it the iron!!
My tips for 'happy' ironing have to include comfortable footwear (sexy slippers bought for me by Moogsdad - he knows me too well :) ) .....
Plenty of fluids....
and Michael Palin bumbling round the Himalayas.
That revolting pile of drudgery included 14....that's fourteen..... yes 10+4.....2x7.....20 minus 6.....1,000,000 take away 999,986....of Moogsdad's shirts!! Considering he promised to iron his own work shirts, way back when he was trying to keep me sweet, that's rather a lot I feel.
We need to redistribute the chores a bit when I start work - working up to broaching that particular subject!!!
Onto much more pleasant things ....
Postie brought me a lovely parcel today - cheers Postie :)
A beautiful knitted bag, for my birthday, from the very lovely and very clever Jane! Thank you so much Jane - I love it and it's my favourite colour too :)
Thought you might just like to see today's little bargain!
I need a diary for when I start work and of course, as it's not January, the choice is somewhat limited in the local shops. I managed to pick up this 'pretend Filofax' for £2.50!!
It was either this or a teeny tiny one that I would, quite frankly have struggled to write in - big writing/small page = illegible.
I've decided it's Retro/1980's and therefore highly fashionable :)
All I need now is the right clothes and maybe a new phone I'll be all set!!
I have two hours left before fetching the little baggages from school, taking the car for it's MOT, going to the library and......
......making the most of the warm day by taking them down to the 'beach' (I use that term very loosely!!) to eat fish'n'chips out of the paper for our tea :)
Have a happy weekend xxx
