Project 365 week 42

Been a busy old week with one thing and another, but a lot achieved so worth while.

Sunday

No overtime so home in the day light. We have decided this needs to be relocated upstairs. The table is never clear enough to eat off of so not fit to call a table anyway.



Monday

We were watching the neighbours trees being cut down. Was quite impressive to see the way they did it. Loved how he let the chain saw dangle as he moved round. Weird to look out the back windows now but guess we will get use to them not being there. They were entangled in the phone lines so guess that is why they needed to come down.









Tuesday

Went a wander round the charity shops in Kilmarnock looking for a table of some sort for my corner now I have a chair and not a couch.  Manage to find this. Big enough to cover the plugs on the wall as well as cables on the floor. A few drawers for holding some bits and pieces. Looks fine and I say will do a turn but knowing me it will still be there in five years time.





Wednesday

We need to move the sofa bed out of the upstairs bedroom to make room for my table and sewing machine. But to do this we needed to move the bookcase that sits on the landing half way down the stairs. So the bookcase has been displaced into the spare bedroom......unfortunately the spare bedroom is needed tomorrow for DD2 SIL2 and Ziggy.
Sofa bed away to a new home and books back where they belong.






Thursday

Our little visitor is very cute. But not overly impressed with the bubbles.







Friday

As a UNISON rep at work there are certain things that need to be done to show support. The hospital was  due a ministerial visit by Shona Robison the Health Secretary for an annual check up. So we went along and Ms Robison took time to speak to our Branch Secretary before she went into the hospital. We were there to discuss #scrapthecap the 1% cap on Public Sector wages for the seventh year running.









Saturday

My new sewing room is set up. Hubby's computer is in one corner my sewing room area takes up another corner, still room in the middle for Ziggy's travel cot that she sleeps in. Moved all the children's toys and books off of the shelves in here and relocated in the front bedroom cupboards where all my sewing stuff was stashed.
Plan is to make a table cover that reaches the floor to hide the stuff under the table. Then I can "tidy" the room under the table once it is up and running. This is probably the tidiest it will ever be so thought I would share it before I start using it and make it look loved.

  1. It's always such a challenge moving stuff around as everything you move means something else needs to be moved! Glad you're all organised now!

    1. no it is a nightmare, and a pain but it did produce rubbish for the bin so not all bad.

    1. the table is proving to be dead handy, saving me the calories of bending down to pick up my cup of tea etc

  7. Big reorganisation then. I think having a sewing room makes a lot of sense for you. Hope you get it how you want it soon.

  8. Reorganising is never simple is it?! I need that tree man down here to sort out some neighbouring trees - the chainsaw looks very precarious.

  9. Moving one things always involves moving lots of other things, doesn't it?! Lovely to have a proper space for your sewing though.

  10. We had some huge trees behind our house and they were finally cut down....was pretty cool watching them being chopped down and was glad we didn't have to deal with all their leaves but in summer miss their shade.

    Aww bless she really doesn't look impressed with the bubbles
