Good morning! It's Saturday, weekend, no workmen! It will be nice to have my home to myself although, to be fair, they have been very good. The plasterer has done his work, the artex ceiling is gone and I have nice, new walls with no triple layers of tiles (they were good insulation, I guess). Matt is back on Monday and the reconstructions will continue. Matt is an old friend - I had his now adult daughter in my class in Y1 and he's been my plumber ever since. He is excellent and I don't mind him being around all that much.
During the day yesterday my cold broke up and decided it was time to leave. Yes, I have snuffles and sniffs but it's all 'loose' if you know what I mean. The tight head and chest and the very sore throat are no more and life feels good!
I popped off at lunchtime, went to Aldi for a few bits and bobs (coming back with some flowers which were not on the list but dear me, never mind!), got my flooring for the bathroom and visited Beth's cats while she is away.
There was plenty to choose from in the flooring line. None of it was terribly costly and I came away with the comfortable feeling that if, a year or so down the track, I get fed up with my choice, it won't be terribly costly or difficult to replace it. I have to pick it up next Friday which is perfect because it won't be hanging around all week and Matt needs it for a week on Monday.
On to today. I'm going for another swim and hot shower - bliss - first of all and then the day's my own. I have no plans worth speaking of so I really don't know what I will do. I have some lovely fabric I want to make something from but a) I haven't decided what and b) I want to wait until I know what size I will end up as!
I might tidy out a few cupboards in the kitchen and I've just remembered that I do have some washing, etc, to be getting on with.
Beth will be round but she will be busy upstairs.
Another photo for the scavenger hunt but not an original idea (thanks, Eileen), just my take on it.

Good morning Joy - and it is a good one, the sun is shining and, as you say, no workmen today! Although at least they're not in our house, unlike yours, when they are around...even if it sounds like they are. Have a lovely weekend, Joy, I'm glad your cold is going. xxReplyDelete
Thanks, Sooze. Peace reigns! You have a lovely weekend too and take care. xxDelete
I'm glad your cold has packed it's bags and is preparing for to leave.ReplyDelete
Enjoy your peace from the workmen while it lasts. X
I'm enjoying even the thought of having my home to myself. :-)Delete
But it will be worth it!
Treating yourself to some flowers is always a good idea and brightens up a room. Glad to hear that your cold is nearing the end stages and hope it won’t be too long before it’s gone completely.ReplyDelete
Thanks, Eileen. Waking up has been a lot more pleasant the last day or so!Delete
Hope by now the cold has gone completely and you enjoyed your swim and shower. The putting back together is always better than the ripping out. love that Dandelion head.xReplyDelete
It should also be a fair bit quieter, I expect.Delete
the flipping dandelions are beginning to flower here!!ReplyDelete
They're a pain once they start seeding, aren't they?Delete
