Let's start with last night and the airbed. It was the most comfortable airbed that I have ever had. Sadly I did not get much sleep, however - the room upstairs is warm and faces a different way so is more noisy than my bedroom. My mind was also going nineteen to the dozen - about nothing really - just silly things like how to make mum a bag for her walking frame etc. Consequently I heard the start of the dawn chorus - and was then woken up by Dad's dog Maisie who was moaning and whining whenever she heard them move - at 6am! Being the kind daughter that I am, I got up, made a coffee and then took all three dogs into the garden with the radio on my phone. It was a beautiful morning and one to cherish!
The next piece of excitement was that I managed to find a scrap of the missing yellow fabric and so finished another block - that's reduced the count to 15 now then by August 4th! (errrr - 10 days then!)
I am starting to think about the garden now that the house is nearly finished and am exploring the idea of a "she cave". Today, therefore, was the start of making way for a patio to be laid and picking the right "cave". Dad helped the venture by constructing a new shed for the lawn mower etc (I tried to give instructions but that didn't work - apparently the washers were important!)
Meanwhile Mum watched on whilst she sat and rolled newspaper - long story but she is constructing a coffee table for the church's paper festival.
My job? Well I started to clear out the summer house - moving small tools to another store, filling bags for the tip and listing anything of use on the freely given facebook site for our area - including the actual summer house! Yes - I had plenty of takers with someone coming on Saturday morning to dismantle it and take it away - along with anything that I might want to take to the tip - what an offer!
After going to the tip ourselves, and then a quick visit to the shops, I think it's fair to say that we are all tired and should sleep well tonight!
