The day started as per. Up with the larks to see the menfolks off for the day. I'd stripped my bed and cleaned the kitchen by 7am. The birds were fed, not that I've seen many lately. I had the day to myself. I caught up with Stella. It has to be one of my all time favourite TV shows. I adore the characters in it. Especially Aunty Brenda. I'm missing Dai Davis this series though. I also cracked on with a couple of episodes of The Walking Dead. It's a new to me boxset, seeing as I'd finished the enjoyable romp through Falling Skies with Dr Carter offa ER.
I just love telly! I have it on whilst I knit and stitch! I finished the waistband of the HG jumper front and I'm ready to crack on with the main part.
I've done some more of the poppy. I cleared the dining room table of the mountain of crap that had been dumped on it. I baked a loaf of bread. I used the recipe that was in the half price magazine I got last night.
Just a basic white loaf.
I have remade the bed - with help from Mr 18. It's a superking size feather quilt. I've the full fat version on at the minute. It's one of those that is a summer/Autumn one that separates/joins together. And feathers are REALLY heavy yanno. Also I get all in a tiz with my previously lamented T-Rex short arms, as I pathetically try and shake it smooth!
But it's full on warm luxury because I've got a full flannellette quilt cover on and a flannellette bottom sheet! Cosy and sumptuous. I need it. No radiator in our room and the fireplace makes for a cold room! So tonight I'll have a bath before I get in it for that 'nothing in the world can beat climbing into a clean fresh bed' feeling!
I've washed some lovely gifts of fabric pieces that are destined for teddies and things. My iPhone actually wrote teddies and thongs!
A TOTALLY different picture that paints!
My good friend is calling tomorrow so I will be up with the larks to bake a cake!
Lots of love from
Rachel *Just watching Sport Relief bake off before I go get in the bath then settle down in my warm comfy clean bed sheets with a book I got off my ma in law, who got it off a lady, who got it off a lady etc * Radiostar xxx
