This week I have mostly been ....
.... making dog crate covers !
It would appear that , just like me, Otto likes to be hidden away, snug as a bug when he sleeps,
and so, whilst it is not the most interesting of makes,
my time has been spent whizzing three crate covers together on the sewing machine.
This one at home is by far the cosiest
but he quite happily settled in to his one at Nursery this morning after a
manic twenty minute charge around.
Our week off just seems to have flown by with every minute packed full to bursting.
We have had lovely visits from friends who came with arms full of these beautiful sunflowers,
wait for this ....
a bar of ' Aristocratic Milk Chocolate '
from none other than Downton Abbey itself !!
I know !
It is safely tucked away in my fridge and all have been issued with a very stern warning that it is absolutely not to be touched, not even in times of serious chocolate emergencies, as this is to be eaten by me ( I may possibly share with the other half .. maybe ) during the first episode of the new series.
Nursery is looking all shiny and new after its paint and polish and odds and ends from the crate covers came in very handy for some little strings of bunting
and some seat covers that are now in the staff room.
We did of course manage to fit in a trip to The Meatball Shop, otherwise known as Ikea,
and the usual cramming of shopping into the car boot followed.
Also very excitingly this week I have reached 100 Likes on my Facebook -
and you know who just happened to be the 100th person -
my bestest friend in the whole wide world Jane, who has now joined the world of Facebook - yay !
There was of course time for crochet and
I can now safely say I am on the home run with my blanket.
I am so nearly there with the border.
All that's needed then is a quick block and its ready to be packed up with all of Immi's things
as she heads out in to the big wide world.
