Thursday October 6th

Post  TP on Thu Oct 06, 2011 7:15 pm

Morning,

What are you doing today?

I am off to voluntary work this morning. We have a discussion group today. We sit round in a circle and discuss things that have been in the news or anything else anyone wants to talk about. Razz Then I shall nip into town after and do some shop banking and a few other errands then home.

Morning,

Today I am taking the plunge and getting some paint onto my wallhanging *eeep*. I've painted the background but need to add more colour now. Bit nervous about it but I'm sure it'll be fine. It's super windy and chucking it down with rain today so I'll be very much indoors. Mt new Frank Lloyd Wright book arrived yesterday so I might read that. And someone has asked me to do a "getting organised 101" article for another forum I visit so I've been working on that too.

Have a good day.

Today I'm going into the boys room, said I wasn't going to tidy it again for them, but it's starting to irritate me now and just want it tidy and nice again (not long decorated it for them).
Hubby got a huge shock this morning, checked his online bank and electricity DD had went up from £70+ to £170, he was furious as they hadn't even sent a letter to say they were putting it up, anyway got it sorted and turns out we are using 17 units a day, I don't really know much about it, but the lady on the phone was telling him how many units everything uses, so no more tumble dryer for me!! Have hung washing on airers but don't know how I'm meant to keep on top of all the washing we go through. Good thing is we are in credit with the gas so can put the heating on if I'm a bit chilly, don't want to do that though as I'm sure we'll need all that extra credit when the winter really comes in, so just an extra cardi for now.

Hi appletree!

Well, I've painted the first bit of the wallhanging, I only think I'm so worried about it because it's so very very black! Leaving it for a while now so I don't overwork it.

Time for a cup of tea and a bit of a sit I think.

Been sorting out more thing for the charity shop, if I'm going to donate and get rid up junk its more economic to take a boot full!
Almost discovered my dining room, well its never been a dining room, it did have a pool table in for yrs, sold that in April then put a dining table in. Both kids returned their uni things for the summer and it seemed to get used to store any junk! DS just dumped loads of box's bags and didn't look at them until the before he went back.
Need to line the curtains in there for the winter and hope to revamp the curtains with a boarder to make them different, don't fancy buying 4 new pairs of curtains, will measure up later for the material.
Waiting for the rain to stop then I will put out the recycling ready for tomorrow, also pop out and post some letters.

I've tidied my wardrobe, cleaned the bathroom and hoovered throughout. There are a couple of shirts to iron and a two minute tidy to do in the living area, I'll do half an hour or so on the exercise bike then that's me for today other than the washing up after tea.

Today I did school with DD. Started a new topic with her about current economical events, and comparing today's times with the 1930's and war years. While chatting with her I asked if she wants to cook today, which she said yes, then followed a conversation along the lines of
"Ok, I'm doing lamb chops tonight in the oven, need to get them in by 4pm so your cookies will need to be in the oven by 3.40, we need to be in the kitchen between 3.15-3.30"
"Why so late? I want to do it earlier."
"We're fuel saving."
"How does doing it later save fuel?"
"I don't want to turn my oven on having it heat up, cook the cookies, then turn it off and it cools down, only to have to be turned back on to heat up again to cook dinner"
DD shrugs shoulders, and resists the "whatever" lol.
Hope you're all having a good day.
