Clearly I would change the bedding anyway (although I have taken the opportunity to change into my new 4tog feather duvet from IKEA - let's hope that the night time temperature doesn't drop too much!!) but my journal has allocated today to change the bedding and then tidy the bedside table and dressing table. I am finding that doing little and often is better than an all out attack!
Today is a little more overcast than previous days - just right to resume the painting of the she cave. BIG MISTAKE!! Reaching above my head to paint the roof has resulted in some aching muscles! However I persevered - until the paint ran out! Ah well! I would like to say that I am nearly there but no such luck!
After the obligatory dog walk (which then resulted in two floppy tired out pooches), a quick local shop for provisions ( I am having a slimming world meal tonight - 5 spice pork - which smells wonderful but a tad different!) and the afore mentioned bed change I ventured upstairs to the guest bedroom ........ to make up the bed! As each day passes it is looking increasingly likely that Mum and Dad will have to spend a few days / weeks here in between moving out of one house and into the next so I am starting to get the room ready. My only complaint is that they favour two sheets and blankets - it's days like today that I really appreciate the ease of duvets!
After some more weeding of the gravel area, mowing the lawn (did I mention my super duper new mower?) it was then time to make some mini victoria sandwiches to take round to the church hall - they are having an afternoon tea tomorrow. Sadly I will miss it (although that may be a wise move dieting wise) due to a sewing workshop in Lincoln. I have always wanted to learn how to sew hardanger embroidery - in fact, if I had a bucket list then it would be on it - and am therefore looking forward to starting the challenge tomorrow.
