A New Week!!!

Good morning.
It's a dull and dreary day here in Staffordshire. Quite breezy but rain is threatening so I am not going to risk pegging any washing out today.

DD has gone back to work so once hubby has gone for his afternoon sleep before his night shift I shall have a few hours to crack on with some jobs of which I have quite a list.

Ruby needs a white scarf to dress up for school tomorrow so I have to whip one up on the sewing machine. She is dressing up as Amelia Earheart. I did look for one in the fancy dress shop in Derby but couldn't find one. I did think I had until July but either I was told wrong or heard wrong. No won't take long once I find some fabric in my stash.

Fish pie is another job on the list. Two bags of frozen cod need using up so I'll make a pie for our tea and see if DS and DDIL can use one for theirs. If not it can go in the freezer for another night.

Laundry........always laundry to be done in this house. I don't know where it all comes from.

If there is any free time left for me I will be sewing as usual. The new patterns have arrived this morning but I won't start on anything for Ruby today as I need to re-measure her now that she has grown a bit. Also in my order was a ten metre lucky dip bag of summer fabrics. Not entirely what I expected them to be but there are a couple or so useful is actually quite stunning but looks like it might be a bit of a challenge to work with..

Depending on how tired she is when she finishes work DD and I may watch another couple of episodes of Downton.
We are still enjoying Home Fires but I have to say that after watching The Durrells last night I am not sure I will bother with any more. I spend the whole hour either wanting to clout the kids round the earhole or shake the mother until her teeth

Right I'll go and sort out the load of laundry that has just finished and put another load in.
Thanks for your visit today.


  1. I haven't bothered putting the laundry outside either. Your reaction to the Durrells this week was the same as mine, I did laugh when I read your thoughts.

  2. I feel the same re the Durrells. I feel the promise it gave has gone.

  3. I'm not the only one re The Durrells and the laundry. It seems to be the same week in week out. Teenage angst, mother getting stressed etc. I can't decide whether to carry on watching. Laundry multiplies overnight in this house. I can never keep up. X


Thanks for taking the time to leave me a message.
It is much appreciated.
