A fine morning but chilly.

Sitting room cleaned and hoovered, put up DB's mothers picture in the hall. Tried to put up one in the guest room, bent the pins so decided not to bother they are on the chest in the hall.

Visit to see my quilting guru this afternoon and have a chat....lovely time,tea and lemon drizzle cake. It was a bright afternoon. I left DB working in the garden, he has dug over and weeded the big border to the side of us, so I can place some plants for him to put in tomorrow.

A lot of traffic on the A46 coming home, a ambulance came screaming past us at one point.

DB took in a parcel this morning for one of our neighbours so he took it round to her, the people in the flat above us appear to be moving in

This evening I have sat and sewn the binding down on the mats for DD2, she is coming tomorrow so I will give them to her then.

Supper tonight, fish, mash, cauliflower, carrots and mustard sauce. A slice of cotton reels lemon drizzle cake with some cream for dessert..yum yum.

                                 Set of 4 place mats finished.


  1. Today I finally got your parcel out. Something for the house and the caravan. Happy Birthday, Anniversary and House Warming.

  2. Very colourful table mats. It's nice to get out on your own and have a girly chat.

  3. Glad you had a lovely visit with cottonreel. The place mats are beautiful.

  4. The placemats are so pretty .... I'm sure your DD2 will be very pleased to have them. You are fortunate to be able to dig over your garden already. We still have tons of snow here. We had sunshine and blue skies today though, so Spring might actually be around the corner. Cheers, Nanny Anny

  5. How lovely that you had such a good time with your friend and got the Friday clean done plus the binding on the table mats for DS2! You have been busy!

    Cheers, too, for all DB accomplished in the garden!

    Hope you sleep well tonight and have a delightful day tomorrow.

    3 loads of laundry done here, plus cleaning two ceiling fans which is a work out.

    It's good to hear that you are settling in so well. Your meals always sound so lovely - how do you prepare fish mash cauliflower? Is this like a fish pie with mashed cauliflower instead of potato?


Thank you for leaving your comment. I do read them all. I may choose not to publish them all however.
