Happy Valentine's Day!!!

Today Andy and I will exchange cards. There will be no huge bouquet, no big heart balloon and certainly none of the ridiculous gifts that abound in the shops.
My home and my heart are filled with love all year round......well except for when he is in the doghouse.....lol.
I have splashed out 89p on a pack of shitake mushrooms and will be making a special tea of braised pork fillet in a mushroom sauce...the chilli has been shufted over again.

Not quite tropical outside but it is dry and bright so when Andy gets up after his night shift he will be making a start on the bottom shed. He needs to take the garden furniture out to make space for all of the gubbins in his tool shed which will then be moved to the other end of the garden.
The oil tank and combi boiler should be arriving by the weekend but I am not entirely sure when the actual work is starting.

The quilts are still at the basting stage as I got sidetracked by various things yesterday.....you wouldn't believe how easily I get sidetracked...ha, ha, ha.
I did have to go out last night to do a top up shop for veg, milk and dog food and I also picked up a seven drawer unit for storing my fabric in so that got assembled and the fabric sorted into it. No more humping huge heavy boxes when I need to find something.
When I shop for fabric I am always drawn to patterns rather than plains so there is a distinct lack of plain colours to use as bindings. That was remedied last night and I put in an order for a rainbow of colours that will go with some of the fabrics I have in my stash.

Okey dokey.....I can hear stirrings from upstairs. He will want tea and something to eat so I'll go and get him sorted out.....see....distractions, distractions, distractions....lol.

Have a happy day.

  1. We don't bother too much either, our house is filled with love and laughter everyday. He buys me flowers and we have treats all year round. Good news that the boiler etc will arrive by the weekend, lets hope it will be working soon.

  7. We don't usually bother with Valentines either but this year I got a bouquet of flowers delivered. When it's something that doesn't happen every year it really is a lovely surprise. xx
