I haven't had chance to blog this week . Other things have been to the fore .
My son came to do some maintenance work on my home . A fresh coat of emulsion on my bedroom walls and the garage on the outside was in dire need of painting and new guttering . The conservatory roof needed washing and the facia too .
Even the mirrors had a fresh coat of paint
He also put a new shower unit in . The old one was getting very temperemental . The thermostat was definately on the blink . Each morning I didn't know if I was going to get a cold shower or a lukewarm one . All sorted now .
The garden is now calling for attention . I usually try to make that my Sunday chore . All though I love gardening it is still a chore . One day work , six days sitting back to admire the view.
Today I have been browsing patchwork magazines. For months I have been searching for a Octopus pattern that I see on Barb's blog . Today I found it in Australian Patchwork & quilting .
VOL 9, No 7 April 2002 . It really does pay to hang on to your old mags . When clearing a wardrobe so he could get at the back to paint my son remarked "there is a magazine here dated 1995 . " I know, I know , just put it back , but it still has the plastic sealed wrapper on sez he .
Just wait till they really have to clear the place.
