I could really get out of sync with my blogging, I’m dying to spill the beans on my 2 latest finished creations, but Good Golly Miss Molly (hint hint), that will have to wait until tomorrow!
My very messy sewing room. It’s a tiny room, what we call a box room in the UK. And I know I’m lucky, but i just don’t enjoy being in it when it looked like this. And yes I know, the mess is mine, but it doesn’t make me fell any better. Things had gotten out of hand and I had stuff everywhere. And I don’t mean just in this room.
I should do a before and after post as I feel super duper productive as it doesn’t look like this anymore.
My mum in law went in to have a hip replacement. She wasn’t feeling too photogenic, and H is bobbing down, but there’s a lovely view from the window!
Vogue 9082 had another outing. I’ve definitely had my wear out of this frock. I went to the Council Dinner at the golf club, all past captains and current hierarchy. Here’s John – he was the Club Captain when I was the Lady Captain!
I was so very excited when this popped through my letterbox this week!
H played football and scored a goal!!! This is a major rarity as he plays in the goals for his team. But they were winning 4-0 and were given a penalty and H took it and scored!
I came across this newspaper cutting this week when I was sorting through some old stuff. From April 1999, how time flies! I was the baby at our station when this was taken, now I’m one of the old timers!
A curtain shop near the Hospital in Halifax – an apt name don’t you think?
After visiting my MIL on Sunday we called at the Chinese Buffet in Halifax. After 27 courses I was still able to squeeze in a pudding or 4!!
No golf this week in case you’re wondering!
Sunday Sevens, invented by the Lovely Natalie from Threads and Bobbins – sharing a few photos of whats happening outside your usual creative madness!
Good week – and those puddings look fabulous 😃
They were sooooo good, I admit I had to go back for more…they were only small 😀
Ooh I walk past well hung every morning!
You’ll walk my favourite sarnie shop too – in the post office! Those huge cream scones…! 😋
Fabulous name for a curtain shop! Does the sarnie shop have a comedy name too..?
No, nothing exciting – it’s just the local post office in disguise! 🍰
Love the curtain shop name and your view from your sewing room window… and those puddings – bit sized, were they? 😉 Congratulations to H on his goal! And a cute clipping of you as a newbie – nice long hair! But you got me with “sarnie.” What’s’at?
They are teeny weenie puddings, about 2 inches each. And a sarnie…..it’s slang for sandwich! 😀
Does the ‘Good Golly Miss Molly’ hint have any link with the Vintage Tea Party invitation?
One time I let my sewing room – or Lady Shed as I call it – get into such a mess it took me almost a week to sort it out. I pledged to clear up after finishing work for the day and it’s a much more pleasant experience when you go back in the next time. So far, I’ve kept to it – the alternative is too horrible 😉
I wonder if any of those kiddies in the photograph decided to become a paramedic after their time with you?
It’d be fab to have another’s photo – I’m still friends with the other lady in uniform and it’s her daughter on the stretcher. I wonder how many of the other children she still knows?😀
Those puds look marvellous. I was thinking I might go to Harrogate for the show again this year. The vintage tea sounds fun.
It does! I think I’m going to put my dress in a bag and wear it just for the tea party, otherwise I’ll look a bit daft! Let me know if you decide to go on the Thursday and we could meet up 😀
Great innuendo on the curtain shop – very British! My cousin chickened out of calling her dog grooming business “Doggy Style”, unfortunately. No.3 Son is a goalkeeper and never gets to score a goal either, so I know how H feels. On the plus side, he’s the only one who gets to play the entire match without being subbed. Thanks for the kick up the backside to tidy my sewing room, too:)
Omg! That would have been a fab name, so funny! I proper laughed when I first read your comment and laughing all over again! Your cousin must have a wicked sense of humour – it must be a family trait! 😂
27 courses!!! Lovely to see a pic of you as a bairn 1999 🙂 Looks like a great week all round.
I know, I was a proper whipper snapper then, I look too young to have been a paramedic! 😀
Scary, isn’t it? We look in the mirror every day and don’t think we’re looking any older until we look back at old photos.
