We have just about aborted a World War in our House. Why you may ask of a usually quiet retired couple. Well we are having a new kitchen. The old one is as old as the house 44 years old. Now you may think this is an easy task but bear in mind. The Scot and I are like chalk and cheese, and never the twain shall meet. So there have been a few hot words, once with me storming out, saying I don't want anything more to do with it, do it your way. Yes I am known to cut off my nose to spite my face at times.
To add to all of this, we do have a small (very) kitchen, built in Imperial not Metric measurements, and being retired we do have a limited budget. oh and did I mention The Scot has an Engineering brain, sometimes can't see the wood for the trees or is it trees for the wood. )
But yesterday we put in our order for a quote so hopefully all will go ahead at full speed.
Meanwhile to calm my nerves, I am so glad I don't have the appointment to have my blood pressure checked just yet. So to calm myself down I have done some sewing.
My ATCs for the Games we Play Swap have been sent and this is the one I did for the Hostess
I also made another which I wont show you at the moment.
Embroidery has been very relaxing
This does make an ordinary top look rather nice. And it is very warm. So nice in fact that I am doing another
Lots of reading has been listened to as I sew.
Plus I have two favourite serials I am watching at the moment. The Scot doesn't like them, so he records them and I usually watch and sew after he has gone to bed. Storybrook: Once Upon a Time and Downton Abbey .... dont you agree
Mr Bates is not bad either.
We have The Christmas Special coming on Sunday. I do hope Matthew and Mary marry
What a long post but I hope this makes up for my lack of words over the past few weeks..
