Sunday, September 22

Today

* there was some work done on my shawl. I've finished the second ball of yarn, onto the third in a     contrasting colour. I'm hoping to finish it for next weekend fingers crossed.
* new seedlings chosen by the little miss and her Dad for me to plant.
* a nice clean cubby ready to be played in over the holidays, hopefully... They don't tend to venture in here so much these days sadly.
* new paint on the bedroom wall. Hubby started painting using a new tin of paint but alas it wasn't tinted strong enough so back to the hardware for another tin and a quick coat on the walls before it was time to start dinner.  There will be more painting next weekend, it will be worth the wait to see fresh paint on the walls after oh 12 years...time flies.
* my first ever pavlova! Not one of my favourite desserts but with a glut of eggs it was a perfect excuse to give it a try.  Sadly it collapsed but it didn't change the flavour and was a hit.

Joining the lovely Em today.

Have a wonderful week♥

  8. Great weekend....we have an unused cubby too...ours is not tidy like that anymore sadly too.
    I love pavlova making and the best thing is that even if it odes collapse (which is most of the time) it is just a good excuse to fill it with even more cream and fruit...they never fail to impress. Happy first week of holidays hope they are filled with lots of loveliness.xxxx
