High Expectations!!!

I do make myself laugh sometimes at my unreasonably high expectations of myself.
I have ongoing lists of things that need to be done and things I would like to get done and I have added quite a few things to the latter list for this next week.
Now let's just remember that although my two are back at work this week there will be at most twelve hours when I have the house to myself and can really crack on with the jobs with nobody under my feet. I would think looking at the need to be done list that I will need more than twelve hours just for that. So how the heck do I fit in making two tiny dolls quilts, two tiny sleeping bags and four pillows before Wednesday?
Ruby loves to play sleepovers with her dolls so we have bought her the DesignAFriend bed which sleeps two with a pull out bed under the main bed. Trouble is she has four dolls now with the new one we have bought for her birthday so sleeping bags are needed for the two that won't be sleeping in the bed. I must be quite mad but I do like her to have everything she needs to play her little pretend games.

For today I am just using the last of the sliced beef in gravy for a quick Sunday lunch with fresh veg and Yorkshires.
No plans to carry on with Atlantis tonight as there is Call The Midwife and The Good Karma Hospital to watch.....mmm...I may be able to get some cutting out done then before we sit down.

Quite dark and dreary here today but doesn't feel too cold out.There are signs of spring in the garden with bulbs shooting up everywhere but it's still very sludgy and mucky out there.

Hope you all have a fabulous Sunday.


  1. Yes...confirmed...quite mad! But obviously a very loving individual. Squishy hugs. J. x

    1. Awww shucks made me blush....but what a lovely thing to say.
      Squishy hugs back at ya-x-

  2. Morning Mrs, you'll be whipping up dolly accessories in no time! Miss Doodles is one lucky little girl to have such a fantastic 👵 < I don't know if you can see that little emoji , it came up when I was typing in Grandmother !!
    I'm now on a countdown to half term when I will get some house to myself time!

  3. You are such a good Grandma, I am not a gambling woman but I would put money on the list been done ready for Ruby's visit.

  4. Just knock a few things off the list Sheila or if it makes you feel better (like me) carry them forward to next week. I love a list but try not to write as many these days - they leave me feeling inadequate lol.

    Ruby is very lucky to have a such a wonderful Granny and one that can sew things for dolls is definitely an added bonus.

    Glad you've finally got the house to yourself even if it is only for 12 hours. Enjoy it. xx

  5. I love the idea of tiny dolls' quilts! x
