Project 365 week 41

Sunday

Sadly last weeks snowman seems to have melted a bit....





Monday


This week has been about the back fence. As my regular readers may remember in the high winds we had back in Spring we had tied the fence to the clothes pole to stop it blowing over as some of the fence posts had rotted and snapped. As there is no direct route between our garden and next doors ( we are mid terraced) and it was too far to hump everything round and keep walking round the block to get from our garden to next doors so hubby decided the easiest way was to cut a piece of the fence away and then make it into a gate when he had finished.






Tuesday

Fifi has been in The Cadets for a couple of years now, and loves it, despite the ironing and discipline. She seems to thrive on it. At the weekend she was away to Aldershot with other Scottish swimmers to represent Scotland in a swimming competition. Despite being a nearly twelve hour bus trip over night the team managed a gold overall and Fifi won a silver. She has also been promoted to Corporal, not bad for a 14 year old. Her few years of swimming at 6am twice a week plus evenings and weekends for the council swim team has paid off.




Wednesday

Needed to go and pick up another fence post and two more bags of post mix. Went via the charity shops but nothing caught my eye.
Hubby finished off the fence and I finished off sewing the ends in on my crochet blanket and finished off the seams on the quilted blanket. They are now on the auction website if you fancy a bid on them or something else that you fancy.




Thursday

Bob had another appointment, ophthalmology this time, so is at our local hospital. As the weather was nice I got DD1 to drop me and the three wee ones off near the river walk so we could walk into town along the river via a play park and have a burger king.  We had a lot of fun. Blog post to follow.




Friday

I have been having problems with sciatica, it is fine when I am walking or on my feet but when I am sitting or when I stand the pains are uncomfortable to say the least. Do not think my aged couch is helping the problem so when one of the residents in the complex I holiday relief clean in was looking for a new home for an electric adjustable chair, so I gave it a new home. So far so good and by back and legs felt better today.
Need to find a way to lose the cables and the junk that use to live in the corner behind the couch. Maybe another charity shop hunt for something is on the cards this week.





Saturday

Two weeks ago I used a picture of my vouchers last week a picture of the radio I bought with them. Well this week my vouchers turned up that I won from a competition on Facebook with Gala Bingo. A great replacement.

Project 365 week 40

October already. the cows are still out in the fields are down from the hills. Sadly the dark nights are drawing in and I am needing lights on the way to work as well as the way back.

Sunday

spotted my first snowman of the season, cheating slightly I know but could not resist it. It is part of Bale art week run by young farmers in Scotland. This one popped up at the roundabout near the hospital so could not resist a quick picture.

Monday

Decided as is was dry when I dropped Bob off at gymnastics I decided to go for a walk. Was going to do a short circuit that I have walked before when geocaching up a local country estate, but I got approx half way along and there were people felling trees and they had the rest of the walk closed off to the public. So walked back the way I walked up.





Tuesday

This is what we bought with the vouchers last week. The one in our car is the original one that came with our twelve year old car and it leaves a lot to be desired. I was also looking at something that will answer my phone when I am driving, save me ignoring it. Family have their own tunes so if one of them phones I will pull in when possible and phone them back in case it is something urgent. No CD player or DAB on it but a radio that sounds better than the last one did.
Had fun with it on Friday, somehow managed to change it to Turkish instead of English, had to google how to change it back and then take the laptop out to the car to follow through the complex stages, so I have no idea how I managed to change it in the first place.






Wednesday

Walked down to the shop and bought the Woman's Own that we are in this week. The photographer was here for approx ninety mins, took probably five hundred pictures, and used two of them.




Thursday

DD1 phoned to say she could not get a doctors appointment for Spud and she was not happy with her breathing so wanted to take her to A&E to get checked out. So she dropped off the other three here save trailing them with her, I was busy catching up with housework and defrosting the two freezers at the time so I plonked them in front of the tv until I was finished. We then read books and played games. I was very surprised at just how much better they were at playing the dominoes game than the last time. They were happy to take in it in turns, putting back the one that did not go and their board and waiting for their turn to wait for their turn again to pick up the one they now knew fitted on their board.



Friday

Made this quilt for DD1's friend who had a baby in September. Had made an owl themed one for their other daughters first birthday in July. The bedroom is owl themed so this was my criteria,plus I was to add her name, the rest was up to me.







Saturday

Did some sugar free baking, then added "butter" icing to it, so no longer sugar free but yummy all the same. Only made the one sandwich tin and cut it in half and creamed it. Not the picture I had in mind to share today but it looked crap by electric light and I was not actually home in day light sos did not work.
