Who would have thought?
I really didn't see that one coming!
I went to Dunelm to buy some curtains and came home with a different "non sale" pair. Oh - did you think that I was talking about the referendum vote? Sorry - I try not to be too political here. All I will say is that I hope everyone voted and that my fears are proved wrong. I have heard of several people who voted out believing that they were wasting their vote but wanted a moment of rebellion!
Anyway - back to today. I took 2/3 of the laminate floor to the tip, plus the blind, and then travelled on to Dunelm. As you may know their sale finishes on Sunday and I had my eyes on some chenille curtains. Their cranberry ones were on sale - but I preferred their red ones. What's a girl to do? Save £32 and go for a colour that's not quite right or? Well - let's just say that there's a pair of lovely red curtains over the chair in the lounge!
After a quick trip to Tesco's for this month's "Today's Quilter" magazine (plus a copy for Wendy) it was home to try and do some more damage control. Last night, just after I got in from the Theatre, the heavens opened and the conservatory flooded - there are now several loads of towels to be washed!
This afternoon it was the finishing touches to the hall - I've bought a nice bunch of flowers to brighten it up - and some preparation for tomorrow. We are starting a monthly Saturday sewing day at Scamblesby and I want to use the time to get on with the quilting of my Tuesday night blocks. I will finish it. I will finish it. I will finish it ................
The theatre last night was, erm, interesting. Undoubtedly fantastic singers, their acting was a little "hammish" (one leading actor came on with a moustache hanging off and hands on his waits being the great I am) and the story somewhat bizarre. Let's just say that Jean and I got the giggles halfway through the first half and never really stopped - tut tut! Tonight I am out again at the pub for the monthly book club meeting followed by a quiz - gosh my social life! I'm out again tomorrow night - shh! Don't tell anyone!
