Last night was "fab-u-lous" - a real feel good night out with lots of live dancing, music and singing - finishing with a multi film homage to Hollywood. For all the fans of Strictly Come Dancing, the live tour lets you see familiar routines from the tv show up close and personal - as well as new whole cast routines. Jay and Aliona won the phone vote on the night but, for me, Anita Rani and her partner Gleb danced the best.
I arrived home around 12:30am and wouldn't have bothered the dogs in the kitchen had they not started to moan and whine. Conscious that Mum and Dad were sleeping above the kitchen I went in, let them out to be clean and then settled them down again - or so I thought! Ten minutes later of Daisy whining and howling I got up and brought her cage into my bedroom. She still didn't settle until I let her sleep next to me on the bed (okay okay I know that I shouldn't have done that but, by now I was ready to settle for anything to close my eyes!) Truthfully she did settle really well - until the back up battery in the smoke alarm started to peep really loudly and woke me up. Conscious that the alarm was outside the bedroom upstairs I then got up and took the battery out before settling again. Well I say settle - that was until Millie started to whine at 5:30am. Are you getting the picture? I am shattered! Mum, on the other hand, reported a lovely nights sleep!
The rest of the morning passed slowly until we made a decision to go out for some lunch and try a new café that I have never been to before - The Gingerbread Café. It was very pleasant and mum even picked up some useful Christmas gifts - yep 11 months early as well! Whilst we were in the area we popped into Tesco's and into Pets at Home (to buy a retractable lead for Daisy's fist walk next week) before heading down to B & Q. They had a sale on of "Really Useful Storage boxes." By the time that Dad and I had finished I am now sitting in a room with 18 boxes!! (hence the title of the blog today). I have made a start in sorting the craft room and have dismantled three boxes so far and filled a bag of books for the charity collection tomorrow, It may be a small drop in the ocean but it's a start. The boxes are so that I can organise my fabric into colour themes etc.
Cute photo of the day - Millie and Daisy lay down to sleep in the morning sunshine - bless!
