I'm having a quiet day today.

There's not much to be done around the house so I'm just getting the laundry done as the weather is good, hopefully I'll get everything dried today. I've decided to paint the frame of an old mirror to fit in with the decor in the spare bedroom. I don't really like things to match but I want a mirror in there for when we have guests and we have an ugly mirror so I might as well use up the paint I already have and save some cash. Other than that I think I'm just going to work on the wallhanging.

We've to take one of the rabbits to the vet later. Not sure what we're going to do this evening, maybe watch an opera or a film.

Would love to see it when you're finished alec, as always Smile

I'm v. excited today - it's actually quite sad Rolling Eyes pale I have £7.50 nectar points and my mum has £4.91 on an Argos gift card she was given as a return refund. So DH is collecting for me a little desk £11.99's worth but I'm excited because it's free bounce

I have an oak table in my dining room and this is a flimsy pretend oak laminated kind of thing but it's ok. It's my little study area tucked away in a little nook. I'm frantically pinning on Pint' lovely accessories to make or buy. It's the little things huh! My own space!

Enough of the cheap cwappy desk lol

About to go bleach around the sink and bath area, iron, put clothes away, do breakfast dishes and wash kitchen floor.

morning all

a varied day today, wm on and when the drizzle stops, according to the weathergirl it will be warm a bit later on, out it all goes, finish packing up my ebay sales and take them to the PO. update my freezer list with my bargain finds. clean and hoover upstairs, put the decorating stuff back into the loft (had to remove this as OH installed new bathroom extractor fan at weekend). No need to cook tea and beef hotpot in slow cooker yummmmm, and possibly start the ironing - yuk!

If enough time, then I may hoe the garden but this is not desperate.

Hope you're all having a good day today.. Very Happy

Morning everyone!

We've started to decorate the living room today having procrastinated about it for weeks lol. Packed all the ornaments and pictures into a couple of boxes, washed all the paintwork down & dusted the walls where pictures had been hanging .......... Got the paint out of the shed and it's unusable due to being frozen during last winter Embarassed Mad Oh well we've started the woodwork instead and will buy emulsion on Wednesday lol. It'll teach us not to check things before starting the job!

So after painting this morning it's a bath/shower then lunch. The dogs will be walked by DH this afternoon & I'll do some ironing, hopefully bring in the dry washing from the line and do some more on my crochet blanket for DS2. DS1 has chosen his uni's this weekend (2 in Leeds, Manchester Met, Lincoln & Canterbury at the moment). After Christmas I'll start him a box of food & essentials going by picking up a few extra bits when I shop each fortnight.

DD went on her girlie holiday late last night to Cyprus hope she has a great time Very Happy

Have a good day all I'm off for a quick look around the rest of the forum now.

Been to DD's group this morning and she did fantastically well with the walker and even had a go with the next step up one so will be a quiet afternoon here as she gets really tired after working so hard in the morning. Will have to nip out and collect OH from work and possibly go and sort out a new digi box for the parents in law - can you believe it their local electric shop flogged MIL a - wait for it - £600 telly pale when it was the digi box that was broken!!! So OH went over last night to sort the existing telly out and tune it in properly so MIL could ring the shop and cancel the telly this morning, they only need a box that they can record stuff on now.

Hope everyone has a good day X

That's made me so angry your poor MIL Mad Mad It makes my blood boil the way some shops take advantage of older people not understanding some new technology. Glad you're going to sort it out for her.

All sorted now, refunded for the telly and new digi box in. Must admit I was pretty livid when I found out, especially since they've been using the shop for years.

HFW's cheaty peach ice cream is churning in the machine for OH later but still no idea what to do for tea - it'll probably be some strange ready steady cook job as it's shopping day tomorrow.
