Good morning, gentle readers, and I hope you have all slept well. I haven't looked but it feels pretty mild this morning (although that might be the heating, of course).
Yesterday was a lazy day so there's not a lot to say about it. However, on a blog I follow (The Frugal Family), Cassie posted a fudge recipe that uses Nutella. Now, I don't think I have bought a jar of Nutella (or it's cheaper own brand equivalent) is my life but it is easy found so I thought I might give it a whirl at some point this coming week but using Thermione rather than by hand - saves a lot of stirring that way!
Here's a link to the relevant entry.
My bedroom is now finished and drying out. It does look lovely, very clean and fresh. I looked at the curtains which were, frankly, grubby - a lot grubbier than I expected, especially along the lining at the top. I realised then that, of course, they would be as I often have the window open on tilt and turn so that's the part that would catch any dust blown in.
Anyway, I shall pull out the pleats and give them a good and gentle wash. I did check that they were washable when I bought them.
However, a new bedroom (sort of) isn't something that happens very often so I started pondering and thought wouldn't it be lovely if I could treat myself to new curtains.
There's a problem, of course, which is that there is absolutely nothing wrong with the old curtains. However, the curtains in the other two bedrooms are not particularly wonderful, especially in the blue room so I could replace those curtains with my curtains (assuming they wash properly). It wouldn't then be the 'blue' room any more, of course.
So, tomorrow, I am off to a curtain place. I've used Chelford fabrics in Gamlingay for ages now, it's like an Aladdin's cave, a wonderful place. Not being sure whether they open on Mondays, I googled and discovered that they closed down in July. Oh, no!
But then it said that they have another shop in Harpenden which is actually closer so guess what - fingers crossed, that's where I'm going tomorrow.
I have no idea what colour, pattern, anything I want and I have an open mind as everything else is white or ivory, even the bedding. I just know I want it to be pretty and restful (and washable). If I don't find anything that shrieks 'here I am, get me' I am no worse off, am I? I shall be taking the window measurements with me in hopes though!
So fingers crossed for me, please.
Today is knitting day. I have to knit and knit and sew and get things finished. Luckily I have some fudge to keep me going - it is so rich, you can't have very much at a go.
Better get going then . . . have a great day, whatever you are doing.
