Oh those doubters out there - last night's sleep was wonderful. As the wind and rain lashed the house I was snuggled down between the feather duvet and bed topper - it felt so comfortable and reassuring that it was a pain to let go so early. When that alarm went off at 6am I could have cried! Why so early you ask? Well M & S were delivering the bed for upstairs between 8 and 10 and could ring around 7 to tell me that they were an hour away. One has to be ready! As it was they arrived around 8:40am and the new bed was quickly unpacked and assembled. The mattress is coming from a different firm and will arrive on Wednesday - that plan is coming together and the upstairs bedroom is turning into a lovely comfortable spare room.
I am, however, still tired and everything today has felt like I am swimming through treacle. Housework was done and post posted. Otherwise I have been sewing - firstly making a start on some tea towel bags to sell at the Scamblesby Art Fayre in October. The tote bags are made simply from Tea towels - often tea towels have nice motifs on and are made from stronger fabric than fat quarters.
Then it was time to assemble everything (plus the kitchen sink) for a Scamblesby sewing day tomorrow. With my Christmas present list seemingly growing day by day I have decided to use these days to make the smaller gifts and, hopefully, start crossing off the list. With only 98 days ad 8 hiurs to go I am not panicking - honest!
This evening (yes that is really all I have done today, apart from dozing through a lunchtime catch up of the soaps from yesterday!) the plan is to make a start on the applique that needs to be finished for the Textile Group on Monday. I don't half leave things to the last minute!!!
Dieting wise everything is still on track. Mind you - I am also doing more cooking - breakfast was Kedgeree, lunch was Bacon and Asparagus Pesto Pasta and Dinner will be a steak casserole with veg. All of which takes time to create!
