Just sat down for a rest and a check-in. Made a cushion cover for Possum's new sofa bed for her apartment this morning and that finished off the project with the acres of old rose velvet curtains - fluff and bits everywhere! That and a desk and chair and the curtains now delivered and installed - 4 flights of stairs and dead lift so not funny - with a bit of help from Andy her flat mate.
Sewing plank (12mm x 240mm chipboard for cutting out) now removed form my kitchen table and floor hoovered and washed. Looks like a kitchen again. Discussions held over what we're taking, what we're leaving and what we're binning. Asked OH if he wanted to keep the corner tables. What corner tables? Like the one on the living room in the angle between the two sofas.
He actually had to go and look! Observant or what?
Really pleased the Olympics are done. Really pleased that team GB has done well but, like Hosta, I don't see the interest in watching people or bicycles or cars just going round and round or up and down. Can't be doing with all the hype and the emotional bits and the endless repetition.
Not watching Poldark. Saw the first series and didn't make it to the end so wasn't about to start the re-make. Very happy about GBBO returning and then it'll soon be time for Strictly.
FG - you were very restrained. Punkdoc - I'd have thought having 2 or 3 cameras would be feasible if it gives you peace of mind, or at least recourse to justice with proof of bad behaviour.
I only iron when I'm sewing. OH does ours - condition of watching endless hours of sport on TV...
Liri - sorry about the crossing. Hope the return is better and that you have fun in between.
Cool and damp and grey here but set to warm up again next week. I have chairs to paint for Possum and more furniture to move and sorting and clearing and packing........and potting up of a few more treasures to start my new garden off. It's a bit of a blank canvas.
Bon appetit for all those who have Sunday dinner rather than Sunday lunch. Slow roast belly pork for us - the only cut that comes with skin for crackling here. Soon be time for my apéro! Cheers.
