Good morning, everyone. It's the tenth - we are a third of the way through April - how on earth did that happen? Where's the time going?
At least it's not raining today. Yesterday morning it was chucking it down as I drove to Sainsbury's; pretty unpleasant driving conditions, in fact, with a lot of semi-flooding to drive through (which had drained off by the time I came back). I managed to find what I went to look for, which I was pleased about, but decided not to then cross town to Tesco. I'll go there another day.
At home, I'm afraid I didn't move a single book although I did think about it! I got sidetracked into going through my clothes again as I'm short of space since I inherited some of Mum's clothes. It was worth doing, definitely, and the Sally Army recycling point is now a little bit more full! There was one skirt that I've never worn but I can now - it was too long, however, so I turned it up and once that was tacked and ready for machine sewing up, I started on the half finished skirt that I found in Mum's office.
Looking at it more carefully, I now think was intended to be the skirt part of a dress with a double row of buttons from top to bottom, but is easily adapted, the main problem being that as the wrapover at the front is bigger than I thought, I'm not going to get into it for a while. I'll finish all but the buttons and button holes (and hem, of course) and it can be a 'target skirt'.
I was going to take the bus into town this morning to get some things for Dad but I have time to do that so I'm going to stay home and get properly stuck into those books instead. That's the important thing really and I need to devote a couple of hours to it. Once that's done, my bedroom needs a good sort out. It's amazing how books seem to escape into my bedroom and I'm sure they are breeding in there!!!
All that, alongside a bit of ironing and the usual everyday chores, should keep me busy and out of trouble today. Have a good day, everyone.
(edited to add - I didn't get the sourdough bread started yesterday - maybe today!)
