Its going to be a busy week

I have had physio again today and all the walking to has completely cream crackered me and I am grumpy as my tooth is playing up a little bit. So not a happy bunny.  Still up to my ears with the cleaning but then I know the house will be lovely and clean for the next month and so I am hoping to play a little bit this coming weekend although as I have said I am going to be busy during the week. 

I really want to get back to my preserving and also to some of my handicrafts  - I need to finish off some projects namely some crochet and get started on finishing off some of the numerous ufos as well as some of the items I have purchased from Ebay part worked.  I also want to start hand piecing a patchwork something which I can pick up and put down and work at my leisure.  There was rather a pretty one worked in diamonds with a white background that came up on Ebay but I missed the auction it went for over £100  - worth the effort that has gone into it bit I want to work something myself.  I have done English paper piecing before when I was at school. The diamonds ended up forming a star pattern but it did look stunning  I thought that  something like that would look attractive and give me something to persist with on a long term basis.  Once I get into the back bedroom a bit more I think I will find no end of others ufos as well.  I know I have a lot of wool.

Anyway back to work.

Catch you soon.


We intend to go to the Farm shop again at the weekend so will stock up on meat etc. then for the month.  There is a little room in the freezer and with me tidying up the dining room I can find things again.


  1. housework is never ending or seems to be like preserving always something to do, its coming to that time when gluts will be abound :-)

  2. I concur Dawn - the older I get the harder it is to get motivated with the cleaning because it is a lot of hard work, But then I do like the house to be clean. I would rather have the gluts than none at all like this year. Hopefully I will get everything sorted for next year. Take care. Pattypanxx
