Morning, everyone. Guess what - it's another sunny start to the day, three cheers. Still quite chilly but it should warm up a fair old bit as the day progresses.
Yesterday was wonderful. It was so sunny and ended up reasonably warm too. It was cardigan-but-no-coat weather really. I wondered about sitting out but, when I got the washing in, it just didn't feel warm enough for that so I didn't.
I did get washing done though - and ironed come the evening. Big white sheets that looked lovely on the line and ironed up a real treat while I was watching telly.
Swimming was, again, very pleasant and I remain clean! I'm giving it a miss today so it's a top to toe wash instead. Not nearly so much fun but a lot faster! The bathroom is coming on. The titchy wee bath is in and the storage and vanity unit are also in (but not usable yet). It's all very encouraging and I wish I could get a good angle to take a photo but it's such a small room, I can't.
I finished the little jacket I was knitting, apart from buttons. I think I will turn them into a fun feature with different coloured buttons; here's a photo - what do you think? It's for a two (ish) year old and has a hood which I folded under for the photo.
Now I've made it once, I have ordered some more yarn in a teal colour and will make another for the little boy of a friend I am going to see at the beginning of June. I only made this one because I had the yarn left over plus itchy fingers and I'll probably give it to Beth so she can sell it for Kitty Stitches (unless any of my readers are interested - if so, give me a shout).
It's a lovely, soft, aran type yarn so very suitable for soft and tender skin.
Today is another fairly blank day as far as formal engagements are concerned. I was going to pop into town to get some curtain lining, etc, but I've just realised that Beth has all the measurements so, unless she emails them across to me fairly soon, it will have to be tomorrow.
The biggie for today is that the chap who might be my gardener is coming over to do a couple of hours of work. It should all look loads nicer once it is all done so fingers crossed.
The other biggie is - no tuition. Wednesday was Y6 day and it's their SATs this week so I wouldn't have them anyway, but I've fulfilled my brief with them, the parents think I've done a good job and that's it - done and dusted. It's quite nice to have a free day in the middle of the week. I'm not actively looking for more students but if one came along looking . . .
And finally - Slimming World group this evening. I hope I've lost more - I've stuck to the plan this week - but you can never tell. Fingers crossed again!
And my fingers are also crossed that we all have a lovely Spring day in our various ways. xxx
