Good morning, everyone. First of all, just to say a big thanks for all your kind and supportive comments yesterday. I wasn't exactly upset, just rather taken aback, but it's all done and dusted now and, hopefully, that's the end of it.
Beth and I had a lovely few hours together yesterday. She arrived in time for lunch and stayed until around four thirty, departing with ironing, frozen meals, basket and railing that she used to use to hang things on at craft fairs. It was great to catch up on everything. She read my blog yesterday and laughed, saying that I had definitely gone into 'kind but very firm teacher mode' - apparently it is a recognisable me-thing that I've done before on many an occasion and probably will again. I do know what she means!
I've ticked off one thing on my 'to do' list. Admittedly, it is the simplest thing on the list, that of sorting out my poly bag drawer, but it's now spick, span and tidy and things will no longer keep falling down the back. It was a great feeling,. ticking it off!
I thoroughly enjoyed Throw Down again yesterday evening although I disagreed with the elimination choice. Having said that, I am no expert so who am I to judge? Again, there were some fantastic creations and how they do it in the time they have, I cannot fathom. The winning creation was stunning, I thought.
Today the diary is absolutely empty but I have a stack of washing to do, both mine and Beth's, followed by the drying and ironing, and I will pick another task from the list, probably sorting out the cupboard under the sink which really is a dog's dinner of a mess right now. I also want to complete my shopping list as I said to Beth that I'd do her shopping as well as mine so we made a rough list. I want to get everything into some sort of coherent order and then I'll go tomorrow or Wednesday early morning. It make more sense for one of us to go out instead of both and I'm running short of some items, mostly fresh stuff.
Well, I'd better stop as it's time for the second hot drink of the day. Have a great day, whatever you have planned, and take care. xx
