From time to time D will send me little emails with attachments. Today's email contained this image.
For those of us of a certain age will know only too well what it is like to be freezing cold one minute and suddenly get a surge of heat that comes up from your toes and ends at the top of your head. You end up standing with the back door open in order to cool down in the middle of Winter. D will tell me the bedroom is freezing when to me it feels a nice ambient temperature and I still end up kicking of the quilt during the night. . This I have to say has been happening a lot of late. Now why I couldn't have followed in my mother's foot steps and be done with all this by now seems quite justly unfair. I can't quite decide which of the seven dwarves I am supposed to be today may be a mixture of all of them.
This weekend was a quiet weekend after doing all the usual of catching up on housework. Sunday we decided to go out for breakfast. Fortunately we timed it just right. Just after we had found a table and placed our order the local MG club poured into the car park for their local meet. They were meeting at the garden centre for breakfast and were then heading off to a micro brewery. D and number 3 managed to have a walk around all the cars before we left whilst their owners were still tucking into their full English.
I spent the rest of Sunday doing more of my Cross Stitch. I managed to track down the bead for her wand only to find I couldn't find my bead needle and had to search through the rest of my needles to find one with a small enough eye. As you can see I succeeded. I was very pleased with the progress I was making only to realise about an hour later that I would have to unpick a section as I had used the wrong number floss. D said you would have to be a blind man in order to notice but you know what it's like. Once you know something you can't un-know it can you. So I spent the next hour unpicking and resewing in the right colour. Still The Dark Sorceress is making good progress but continues to be a WIP.
Did you all tune into the new series of the Great British Sewing Bee. As lovely as the person was who went home (no names just in case there are some of you still waiting to watch on catch up) I think they made the right choice. Nice to see there are a few more males this series too.
Then this week we also have the start of the Celebrity Great British Bake Off for the next four weeks don't we. I haven't mentioned that to D yet, he can only cope with so many of my must watch programmes and he's doing quite well with The Voice this year.
This week we also have another birthday boy when our Monty will turn 7. He still thinks he's a pup and for the most part can keep up with the younger ones. He is definitely getting into pipe and slippers mode. These days he sleeps most of the day away and is definitely going a little deaf, unless of course you rattle a dentistix packet and he can still manage to hear one of those and be first in the queue.
Hope you're all having a good week
