I can see clearly now .......
Firstly - the WI entry. We didn't win - but then again didn't expect to. We were awarded 89.5 points out of 100 (the winner got 97!) and my bag was awarded 18/20 marks so I am okay with that. More importantly there was some detailed feedback that we can build on next year.
Today's aim was to reclaim the lounge. So, of course, I started by popping the poorly sewing machine into Grimsby to be repaired, popped into Asda and then into B & Q where I met another ex colleague and had a natter. I was in B & Q because I had long admired the Karcher window washer and had a £10 off a £50 spend voucher to use by this weekend. Serendipty? I have to say it does exactly what it says on the box - spray, swish and "vacuum" - disgustingly dirty water and streak free. Those irritating marks from Daisy's paws and Millie's nose were gone in moments.
I did discover the lounge floor and it is now hoovered, furniture dusted and windows washed. One room down, so many to go! Meanwhile the craft room is filling up nicely. I am trying to employ the technique of finding everything its rightful place - well, I did say trying! I have now reclaimed the 2 sofas in the conservatory and am starting to make inroads. Mind you I spent precious time finding partners for knitting needles and trying to sort them!
Tonight its a "quick" church meeting to "square the circle" - no money, a roof to fix, a new mower desperately needed and £8000 to find before the end of the year to pay our quota - ho hum! As treasurer why am I always the bad guy?
