It's cold, it's damp and it's very, very grey.
We were going to be making a start on painting the shed but as it keeps spitting with rain I think it will be put off until we get a dry day or two.
The reason for my fit of the giggles yesterday was the top/dress I am making for myself. The fabric is a pig to work with but I love the floral pattern and the sleeveless A-line design is just what I wanted for wearing around the house with a pair of leggings in summer to keep cool.
So there I am sewing away with visions of a being a cool and calm country wife in my cute floral smock thingy. Get to a stage where it can be tried on for fit and length and OMG.........tried it on to find that I am channelling Edna Turnblatt.......

.......not quite the look I was going for.
Well I started laughing and I just couldn't stop. Poor old Andy thought I had finally flipped and was ready to call somebody to come and take me away.
I laughed so hard that I cricked a rib which hurt but still I couldn't stop laughing.
It has tickled me so much that even now I am still giggling.
Needless to say I will not be wearing my Edna dress out in public....lol......nor will I be modelling it for a photo to post here.
It will be photographed on a hanger.
My little princess was a bit subdued when she came for tea last night. I think she was tired as Daddy dropped her off on the way home from a play centre where no doubt she had been throwing herself about on all the equipment. She was very hungry though and wolfed down her meatballs and veg.
She did enjoy a quiet few minutes out on the back planting up a hanging basket with her Aunty.
Andy and I have been debating about a new rug for the living room and yesterday we found that we could get it for 20% off with a code at Argos so he went off to get it. No more struggling to move the coffee table which kept catching on the smaller rug and rucking it up. This one covers the whole of the floor between the sofas and the hearth....smashing.
Today is a bit of a pottering day tying up loose ends of jobs and then I will finish the neck and armhole bindings on the comedy dress.
I am hoping it shrinks a bit in the wash.
I am trying a new thing for tea tonight which I saw on that new ITV food programme. They did salmon in a tomato and pepper sauce but I can't stand salmon so will try it with some pollock I have taken out of the freezer. I'll serve it with some roasted Charlottes and see what it's like.
Have a lovely day.
