Last night I was watching an old "Have I got news for you" which finished around 11:15pm. Since today would normally have been my pay day and I was awaiting for some travel expenses - I thought - shall I wait up until after midnight and see if the expenses are in? Now I have no idea what time the bank payments are made - but let me tell you - its not 12:10am!! When I woke up this morning part of the expenses had been paid in - but not all. So I emailed school who told me that there was a glitch and that some people had not actually received any wages today - they will all be paid on Friday. Now clearly I can wait for travel expenses - but wages being late in these days of 24/7 communications????
All of the above is just really to indicate that today should have been another tired mooching around day - made all the worse by Katie barking at 4:30am!!! Trust me they were put straight back to bed after being let out!! Instead I set to completing some of the jobs that had been hanging around. Firstly there was the topper for the small set of drawers - a topper to match the table runner.
After lunch (a very strange affair of mixed veg, chicken off cuts and instant cheese sauce - can't you tell that I am trying to run the freezer down?) I then set to using some oil cloth to line a wicker basket that is in the conservatory holding my gardening shoes, gardening gloves and pruners. I have so much fabric around that I am trying to use up what I've got if I can - but was lucky to find a red check oil cloth which seems to match the red / brown strange combo that's going on. I also found some green / brown striped woollen fabric that I am going to "audition" to see if its suitable to cover the chairs at the dining table.
I don't know about you - but its freezing here - definitely jumper time. But the weather forecast says that it will be dry for the rest of today but raining tomorrow. Therefore after walking the dogs I set to filling the green garden rubbish bin which is due for collection this Thursday morning - I am blowed if I am paying £25 a year to not have it emptied - there's a lot of garden to get rid of!
Dinner tonight is roast chicken - a luxury for a Tuesday, I know, but another let's empty the freezer meals. That should take care of some meals this week - soup tomorrow if its this bad again. And then its off to sewing - just two classes to go before we break for the summer holiday.
Toothwatch - the salt washing seems to be working - or I am getting used to the pain - the tooth is much better today - only hurts when ..... I am washing it with salt water. Go figure!!
