Phew, I’ve made it to my week 4 of Sunday Sevens! I’m a newbie to this and lot’s of you are on week 29 – well done guys! I’m in awe! Is it getting easier for me? No, not this week, but here we are and here’s what I’ve been up to this week:
This was one long day. I knew it was going to be a long one so I even brought my machine downstairs. I made 30 pump bags – there will be a post shortly, and i know I’m supposed to mention things that really don’t warrant a full post on their own but I didn’t do anything else ALL day. 11 hours I sat there. My ankles were swollen by the time I’d finished. I even considered taking an aspirin as I felt at risk of a DVT. H snapped this pic of me as my camera was on the side.
A better day. I went to play golf! It’s what I normally do on a Tuesday if I’m not working. We had a cake stall after to raise money for Ovarian Cancer. I bought a lemon drizzle cake and 2 gin and tonic cup cakes. The cup cakes never made it home. In fact, the first one didn’t even touch the sides when I opened my mouth. Hence, just a photo of the cake what was left after the family had seen it.
A life changing event occurred. I ‘borrowed’ my dad’s guillotine. (thank goodness for auto correct – I wasn’t sure how to spell that!). I’ve since chopped 2 sides off the PDF pattern for my Ginger Jeans, so I suppose I’ve made a start!
Back to work. Just 2 shifts this week, which happened to be the 2 days that my hubby had taken off work to start decorating the front room. Good or bad planning, I’m not sure!? No painting took place on Thursday. Just the prep work, the worst bit!
It surprised me when I came home and he’d done 2 coats on the ceiling and 1 on the walls, and just a slight smattering on the carpet!!!! The Thurs/Fri pictures look similar but they’re really a lot different. We’re doing the walls in Farrow and Ball “Elephant Breath”. Hope it doesn’t smell!! lol!
Saturday was Charlie’s 7th Birthday and he had a Nerf Gun war party. Here’s Tina (my bestie) and her hubby dishing out the party bags – 30 pump bags in fact…. !
H all ready for lessons No 4 & 5 at our local – ish indoor snow centre. He’s going to Italy on Friday with the school and is really really excited!
