I'm loving blankets this week - and a hottie and an eiderdown and a quilt. I've been as snug-as-a-bug-in-a-rug so to speak!! I got myself comfy in the spare bedroom with a double bed all to myself and still P managed to catch the lurgy!
I really need him to be fit as we're supposed to be popping up to Northampton again this week - lunch with friends, staying with Gillie, pensioners lunch (he's the pensioner, not me!!), another night with Gillie and then back home, after collecting a mannequin I've just won on Ebay. But somehow I have a feeling we won't be going, which is a shame. I was looking forward to both lunches. The first because it's with old friends who we haven't seen for several years and the second because it's the Northampton Nationwide pensioners lunch. I know as many of them as P does as I worked there, too, in the 1970s, and it would have been so good to catch up with everyone again. Perhaps I could go anyway, even if it is P who is the official pensioner.
My lovely parcel arrived from Lucy Bloom the other day but I'm afraid I didn't think about blog photos until everything was unwrapped. Trust me - it was a beautifully wrapped pink and green package, even down to the green outer wrapping and pink tissue inside! Lucy already knows how thrilled I was to receive it.
I must get back into the habit of blog photo taking - there was a classic before and after moment earlier today. I spent most of the afternoon (yes, really) clearing the pile (sorry, piles) of papers off my desk. It was so bad I was beginning to lose the bottom of my screen. It was my intention to find the sitting room floor (again) but instead I found the top of my desk. At least I found something, so does it really matter whether it was what I was looking for? No, I don't think so!
I've also been sorting my stocks of lace and notions in readiness for a website upload. There's no need to race over there just yet though, as in my inimitable fashion it could be another couple of weeks before I finally get them listed. If there was a 'Mr Men' 'Little Miss Good Intentions' then I'd claim to be she - I'm full of them. They just take a while to come to fruition.
I think I've rambled enough, especially as there's only one measly photo as light relief. Apologies, but have a jolly week everyone, and I'll let you know (maybe in pictures) whether we get where we're supposed to be going this week.
