Winter Anyone

 Well its a look out the window day today , pelting with rain and a fine gale blowing , hung a couple of loads of towels out just because it softens them up nicely and i cant abide fabric softener plus its another one of those things you can live without if you have to.  On the subject of washing im still managing to line dry everything due to the howling gales it then needs a night in the airing cupboard folded and done . Fighting heating wars with himself , hes cold all the time because hes awaiting his next iron infusions , he just wont move about at all unless he has to , plus he insists in being in shorts for 90% of the year . he hasnt realised that ive turned down the thermostat to 10 degrees so the heating doesnt actually click on , i may get away with this for months if im careful.  Hes also getting at me for nipping to the loo in Sainsburys and coming out with a jumper and a pair of pyjamas from the sale rail , unusual to spot stuff in a big size , thats a gripe for another day .  Plus our plague visit to the jumble sales last week went quite well , 3 items of clothing , one to wear one needs altering and a third for the amazing fabric , a huge bag of craft stuff, includes Ehrman tapestry canvas , cross stitch kits loads of tapestry wool ,loads of canvas , basically a bag of happy . I got 3 rather nice 50s cookbooks theyre sat airing in the window . Daughter however is taking up the ugly ornament challenge , i was in the lead but she spent a whole 50p on a big lump of brownstone ware that resembles a huge policemans whistle , she gifted it to me and i havent had the heart to tell her its studio pottery and has a bit of value to it...lol  i will get round to adding a photo if it ever gets light .  So thats a week of happy , now the visitor season appears to be over . Just have to make it through to spring and gardening time

  1. omg, Ehraman tapestries are so expensive. When we went booting I was always on the look for them. Wish I lived nearer those jumbles sound great. On the hot and cold. I'm always warm and he's cold. I got him a heating pad to put on his lap, that way I don't need to sweat with the heating on.

  2. Well done with the jumbling! I'm very jealous that you get ample jumbles round your way.
    I hope your 'bag of happy' sees you through some of winter and look forward to seeing the studio pottery!
