Phew - what a day - its madness here!

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!

    Shame about the short night, maybe tonight will be better.
    Glad to see you are keeping everyone busy!
    Phew on the yellow fabric
