Here We Go Again!!!

Can you remember the saga of the scaffolding that kept us prisoner in the house last year? Well here we go again but this time it is a stonking great boiler dropped just outside the back door. In fairness they did check to make sure we could actually open the door and we can so it's not quite as bad.
There is also a very large green tank plonked on the lawn. Much bigger than I expected it to be. I'm thinking I could turn it into a sewing room....lol.
So....now we just have to wait for the work to start.

I can't remember if I told you that DD is taking me to the Sewing For Pleasure/Hobbycrafts show at the NEC as part of my birthday present. Well this morning I have been having a browse through the exhibitors in the sewing area and to say I am now as excited as a child going to the seaside would be a bit of an understatement.
When I used to go there for cardmaking materials and equipment I would know what I wanted and have the budget in place to spend. We would be in at opening time and gone before lunch....I think we will be staying much longer this time.
Bring it on. It's so long since I have had something so nice to look forward to.

Once this post is done I am going to be switching the laptop off and the sewing machine is coming out. I have faffed about enough this week and now it's time to get some serious sewing started.
Everywhere is tidy so the only other thing I will be doing is tea which will be homemade fish in beer batter to serve with some homemade chips and mushy peas which is a request from Andy. I may have salad with my fish.

The sun is trying to shine here so I hope it is for you too.
Happy Weekend.

  1. I always take my Mom and there's a very good fabric stall called Lilli's Fabrics - he did say last November at that Hobbycraft show that he'd be at the March show and when I checked a few weeks ago, he's down as one of the exhibitors - he's one of the best at this one (he has more competition at the Festival of Quilts) but really well worth a visit to his stall Sheila - hope you're taking lots of cash with you - there's always plenty to spend your cash on there - hope you enjoy it xx

  2. I'd love to go to the NEC but it takes 4 hours by train from here! Sounds fab! I might try a London show that is only 1.5 hours!

    1. We're lucky that we are not too far away from the NEC and on a good day can do it in under an hour. I hope you get to go to one of the shows nearer as they are pretty fab-x-
