Oh I am finding it hard to make time for blogging. Everybody wants a piece of me and by the time they are all asleep I am too knackered to think straight.
So, what have I been up to? Went to the North Devon Show with the kids. I met lots of people that I know as well as my Dad and his wife. Alfie acted like a prize twit just to embarrass me. He and Jasmine rowed the whole time. It's sooo humiliating. Saw Lisa and her gorgeous stall. She did well and sold lots of stuff. I felt quite envious of her as I miss being able to make things. I look forward to having that time again. I bought a few bits from her as well as some delicious produce from the food hall.
I got 3 great books through the post, one from ebay and the others from Amazon. They are all by Janet Bolton who I did a course with last year. She does the most gorgeous naive applique and I felt really honoured to have been taught by her. I want to do more of this type of work and think that the next project will be a sampler for Lizzie's room. Having leafed through the books I am raring to go.
Alas no time for such pleasures and today saw me cleaning out my fridge. I don't like housework, I do enough to get by and the house always looks clean enough, but think Kim and Aggie would have had a fit if they had put their noses into my fridge. The last time I cleaned it was when we moved in 18 months ago!!!!!!! There were things in the bottom that I didn't recognise. It was a job well done and once I had thrown out all the mouldy and decaying matter I realised that I needed to buy food as the shelves were now empty. So off to Sainsbury's we went, me and the three sprogs, another recipe for disaster! More public displays of humiliation for me as Alf and Jazz argue and hit each other around the store. Jeez I could have cried. I know I will laugh about this one day. Now where's that bottle of wine, sigh.................... Pin It
