is very changeable weather-wise – the sky is like a big bruise – patchy blue and black.
This morning we popped into town to look around a Vintage Fair and to see Classic Retro Cars (a display which proved to be non-existent). Instead we walked along the river and back through the park. We are both still affected by this bug which has had us aching and coughing. It’s taking a while to go.
I bought these alstroemerias in Waitrose yesterday – I’d had a parcel delivered there from John Lewis which arrived a day late. The courier had recorded that no-one was available to take the parcel! Hmmm …. surely there was a whole supermarket full of staff at 10am in the morning? As compensation I was given a free Waitrose magazine and it was also an opportunity to pick up a few yummy food items from the shop.
Just now I got round to using my ancient Jones sewing machine – the first time since I had it serviced some weeks ago.
It was delightfully smooooooth to use.
The damp weather reminded me to make 2 waterproof(ish) cushions for Kizzy’s bed. I’d bought a budget shower curtain for the purpose – £3.99. The horizontal lines came in useful as a cutting guide.
I sewed a couple of envelope-style cushions and attempted to get a good photo of at least one of them but someone got there before I could.
A nifty little bag came with the shower curtain – so that will come in handy to hold the spare cushion cover.
Meanwhile, in the office, there’s the threatening feel of a Hitchcock movie. …. a whole flock of birds against the window blocking out the light.
I selected the “Pop Art” filter on my camera to show that they aren’t menancing at all.
I’ve just 2 strings left to thread which won’t take long … think I’ll do them NOW.
